Krav Maga can be learned by everyone regardless of age and gender. An attack does not come seeing age and gender so aged persons and women also should learn Krav maga for their own protection.

Principles of Krav Maga for kids

The complete system of Krav Maga is based on two principles.

The first principal is Natural. In other words, we prefer kids to learn natural movements rather than learning complicated movements. This principle makes Krav Maga easy to learn.

And the second principle is coverage. Coverage in this sense means making as fewer moves as possible when you are attacked. And here at Krav Maga Maleh, we highlight these two principles which are the basics to your child’s self-defence.

Easier and effective form of learning self defence

Martial art has different modes of self-defence techniques but the movements in every mode are hard and complicated. One is required to practice the movements for a long period of time. Sometimes these movements do not come as a natural reaction when attacked.

Here at Krav Maga Maleh we focus on the natural reactionary movements. We want kids to develop their natural defence instincts. If you let your children learn Krav Maga they would not have to feel the pressure of using complicated movements when they are in a crisis.

Krav Maga is a form of self defense that is based on our instinctive movement. It was initially developed for the Israeli Defense Forces by Imi Lichtenfeld, and now it is being taught for civilian and police use as well.

But What is The Difference Between Krav Maga and Other Martial Arts?

Traditional martial arts include: Karate, aikido, taekwondo etc; whereas the modern martial arts include: boxing, muay thai, Krav Maga, MMA, and more.

The main difference between traditional and modern martial arts is the way of thinking behind the systems.

Traditional martial arts focus on the type of defense that would be the best defense, and the best reaction we should use against specific attacks. This reaction is the one that would be trained over and over, so as to regulate the body to react in that way by repetition. After years of training one can master those reactions and make it a second nature.

Krav Maga on the other hand, is the exact opposite in the way of thinking. Krav Maga focuses on our natural and instinctive reactions that we already have when under stress. The defense is built around these types of reactions (and not the other way around). Since this system of martial arts uses our already instinctive natural movements, it means it is easy for us to react that way to begin with (as we would react this way regardless of whether we want to or not). This is why only within a few sessions of training, you would increase your chance of defending yourself since you would already know what to do under stress.

Krav Maga focuses on real life situations too and it is an adaptive system meaning it changes as the attacks change.

Why you should try Krav Maga?

Through our Krav Maga classes you will not only discover the world of self defense, but you will also get fit. So we would like to encourage you to participate in any physical activity. Whether it is martial arts or not, getting out there and moving your body is so important. Especially nowadays when most people sit in offices in front of a computer, acquiring bad posture and not being active enough. The most important aspect of participating in a physical activity is that you enjoy it, otherwise it would become a chore and you will not persist with it. So go out there, and find that physical activity that is the most fun for you.

Why would someone threat you with a knife?

One thing is for sure, they don’t want to hurt you, not yet. If you show the perpetrator that you are resistive or that you want to fight back, this might lead them to changing their tactic and actually hurting you.

However, in a threat scenario, they do not want to necessarily. So why are they threatening you?

A threat knife normally occurs for three reasons, the attacker wants:

1) Information

2) to rob you (money, phone, car keys etc)

3) to abduct you- moving you from one position to another.

How can you avoid such an attack?

First of all, being aware of your surroundings can help reduce the likelihood of being attacked/threatened. Instead of taking the road less travelled at night or in a shady neighbourhood/ road, choose the busy streets with more people and traffic. Do not stop while you’re walking at night to check something in your purse, or take something out of your purse (this gives the attacker a reason to approach you).

Know where you are heading, who is around you, and who looks suspicious. Have an “escape plan”, be prepared!

One way to be prepared is to learn a few simple basic self defense skills, that anyone can learn! It doesn’t matter what level you are in martial arts, if you don’t have experience at all, or if you feel you are not fit enough to fight. At the end of the day it is not about fighting, it is protecting the most important asset- that is YOU, using a simple technique that works with anyone at all levels.

In this video we will show you exactly what you have to do to protect yourself against a knife threat situation.

Make sure to check out the video here, and tell us what you think. We believe every woman should know this skill, so please share this blog and video with your sister, your mother, grandmother and your friends!
