Kraal Mage (a Hebrew phrase meaning essentially “Close Combat”) Is a Self-Defense system invented for the purpose of training members of the Israeli Defense Forces.
As every Israeli citizen, with limited exceptions, are expected to serve in the military, a method of teaching ‘Basic’ Self-Defense skills on a large scale was required.
Krav Maga incorporates techniques from Boxing, Judo, Aikido, Karate and Wrestling. The focus is on easy techniques that would help the ‘average’ Israeli citizen develop basic skills in a short course.
Strengths Of Krav Maga
The Philosophical approach of Krav Maga is it’s true strength.
An emphasis on Situational Awareness, Immediate Counter-Attack and Aggressiveness are important elements of training. These principles are well known and essential to all ‘Warriors’ as far back as history can record.
All Martial Artist ‘role-play’ to an extent. However a common criticism of Krav Maga practitioners is their over reliance on this aspect of training. This leads to a ‘false’ sense of confidence.
Every student should learn to handle actual “Pressure” and ‘Stress’.
Boxers, Muay Thai Fighters and Jiu Jitsu Artist regularly deal with “pressure’ and ‘Stress’ and this allows them to become better prepared for ‘Real’ situations. This is especially true when they keep the right ‘Mindset” and aren’t too sport orientated.
Krav Maga Training
The “jack of all Trades” approach Krav Maga developed worked well for it’s intended purpose: to train Israeli citizens in a short course.
If a student is committed to longer training it’s smart to go straight to the source of the ‘components’ Krav Maga uses: Boxing, Kickboxing, Jiu Jitsu, Karate and Aikido.
This allows them to develop faster, build both physical and mental toughness and help them to tailor their skills to better fit their individual abilities.
