Practising martial arts is a great way to stay fit. You don’t have to worry about ennui setting in because it’s too repetitive and it makes for a fantastic workout for every muscle group. Plus, it always pays to be skilled in the ways of self defense. Krav Maga is one such martial arts form. Combing traditional discipline with a tinge of badass attitude, it’s a highly effective street fighting system that’s promises to turn you into a walking human weapon.
What is Krav Maga?
Krav Maga is a tactical mixed martial art that combines boxing, judo, jujitsu, and aikido among others. Its origins can be traced to pre-World War II Czechoslovakia where a young Jewish athlete named Imi Lichtenfeld, a renowned boxer, wrestler and gymnast, organised a defence technique to keep the anti-Semitic and fascist groups from harassing his community.
