4 Krav Maga Self-Defence Moves Anyone Can Master [Greatist]


  • Krav Maga!!! Isn’t this just typical karate and other Asian martial art forms shamelessly renamed? Come on!

    • No. Krav Maga was developed in the Middle East and influenced by Japanese martial arts Judo and Aikido as well as Western fighting techniques boxing and wrestling. The focus in Karate is on striking, while Krav Maga places more emphasis on neutralising the opponent.

    • Well considering it was developed in the 20s, either a secret sect was living under a rock for the last thousand years or it had to have influences from the older martial art forms…

    • People who have no understanding of how bad-ass Krav Maga is, have never seen it or trained in it. It does sample the most efficient parts of many martial arts. Its the ruthlessness and focus of its application, from the earliest stages of training, that set it apart. You have to train Karate for a long time before you will hope to use it to incapacitate an attacker within several seconds.
