Krav Maga is a simple, effective self defense system that emphasizes instinctive movements, practical techniques and realistic training scenarios. The techniques as they are taught are powerful, and the leadership of the instructors is critical to the success of the program. Krav Maga is a generic Hebrew word meaning “contact fighting.“ The word, maga, means “contact“ and the word, krav, means “battle“ or “fight“. In Krav Maga, there are no rules. Krav Maga is a self defense and fighting system, not a sport
All the techniques focus on strategies and effectiveness in real-life conditions and situations. The attacks and defenses in Krav Maga training are designed generally for close quarter, possibly life threatening situations. The goal of training is to neutralize attacks, counter attack for self protection purposes and escape rapidly and safely as possible. Though self protection is the main goal of Krav Maga, the techniques, conditioning and drills make Krav Maga the ideal training for self defense, fighting, or fitness.
Unlike traditional martial arts, Krav Maga does not require a uniform.. Krav Maga shorts, pants or sweats, Krav Maga t-shirt, and sneakers are suggested for training. Wrist wraps or mixed martial arts style gloves (bag gloves) are required for training. Other safety items such as groin protection for men and mouth guards are essential for most activities.
"My association with Canton South Krav Maga has been a truly
enjoyable one. Having 3 herniations and a crack in one of my
vertebrae, getting in shape again was always a real challenge. I have lost 68 lbs and well on my way to my ideal body weight of 220 in the next few weeks. Krav Maga has been the best exercise and self defense program I have ever involved myself in, as Canton South Krav Maga has accommodated for my back problems and cared for me from the start. Not only have I lost the weight, but I am stronger and more energetic than I have been in years and have a revitalized self confidence. I am also taking much less pain medication! To think I had never even heard of Krav Maga just a few months back….I would recommend this to anyone who is sick and tired of being sick and tired......"
