Krav Maga was founded and developed originally by Imi (Lichtenfeld) Sde –Or (pictured on the right, in his 70's, teaching a young student the Inside Defense). Imi created Krav maga for military purposes, meant to improve combat abilities of Israeli IDF soldiers in the early 50's. Over the years, the Krav Maga system was further developed by Imi to provide self-defense solutions for the civil sector as well.

Fundamental to this idea is the awareness of one’s limitations and strengths. It is the consciousness of those limitations that makes us humble as individuals, another major value inherent to the system, but it is the overcoming of those limitations that give confidence and an indomitable spirit when facing future obstacles. The constant emphasis on pushing forward no matter the odds reflects a can do attitude, and one of continuous improvement. Most importantly, you’ll also be training your mind to be a winner as you will be able to confidently handle any of life’s innumerable challenges.
