KRAVolution—the official trainer for the French Foreign Legion.
Krav Maga is a modern and proven self-defense system. Easy to learn because it is based on natural reflexes, it is extremely efficient to use against one or more attackers. There is only one goal: to survive violent conflicts as unscathed as possible. Developed by the Israeli army and formerly an insider tip in military training, this close combat system is booming worldwide. Krav Maga is not a traditional or competitive martial art but pure self-defense. It’s all about survival. Its techniques are constantly developed and adapted to current threat situations.
In his book Krav Maga: Effective Techniques for Self-Defense, his second on this self-defense method, the author methodically explains more than 100 Krav Maga techniques for self-defense—including more than 300 detailed photos—by using the principles that make this system so successful. It includes information on both well-founded basics as well as advanced techniques, depending on the distance to the attacker.
The effective techniques for self-defense in this book help to demonstrate what Krav Maga is all about, gives exercise tips for more successful and safe execution, and provides information to help the reader further develop the learned techniques, making this the official book about Krav Maga training.
