Krav Maga teaches you how to defend yourself from attacks and which body parts to strike to incapacitate your assailant. The skills of Krav Maga show regular people how to protect themselves when their lives are threatened.
The first lesson we abide to is to steer clear of conflict whenever you can. In the South African environment, however, there are moments when we are forced to defend ourselves. Krav Maga tactics entail forceful counterattacks that aim for vulnerable parts of the body. If you know how to engage in self-defensive combat that hurts the attacker in their weakest places, it enables you to flee the scene as quickly as possible. This may just save your life. Preemptive attacks, protecting oneself with nearby objects, neutralising the enemy while maintaining maximum effectiveness, counter-attacking the weakest parts of the body such as the eyes, neck, face, throat, groin, or solar plexus, as well as maintaining situational awareness to evaluate all aspects of a potentially life threatening situation, are just a few of the techniques we teach.
The ability to protect oneself and the lives of loved ones in spite of one's size, age, weight, or gender has resulted in a rapid rise in self-esteem. Self-esteem of this kind has the potential to improve many facets of life, particularly for women and children in South Africa who frequently encounter threats. Training in Krav Maga is incredibly beneficial for enhancing your body's overall strength. Learning self-defense skills helps you become more mentally alert and confident in your ability to be safe in addition to the physical benefits.
