Krav Maga is Hebrew for “contact combat”. It is the official self-defence system of the Israeli Defence Forces' (IDF). Krav Maga is a reality based self defence used by many elite combat, defence, and law enforcement units all around the world. <br /><br />Krav Maga was created in Bratislava in the 1930s by Imi Lichtenfeld and was then further developed in Israel by the defence forces. Not only has Krav Maga been effectively adapted for law enforcement but also for civilian use. Krav Maga is the ideal self-defence system for use on the street - a place where no rules exist. <br /><br />At IDF Training - Krav Maga Melbourne we take pride in teaching the true, authentic and official Krav Maga of the Israeli Defence Forces founded by Imi Lichtenfeld. IDF Training - Krav Maga Melbourne believes that as with any of the traditional martial arts, it is important to properly research the Krav Maga school that you will be training with before you make any decisions. We only teach the techniques developed by the founder of Krav Maga and welcome anyone who is interested in joining to come and observe a Krav Maga Melbourne class. <br /><br />Feel free to contact us at IDF Training - Krav Maga Melbourne with any questions you may have about Krav Maga, self defence or any ideas you have about how our Krav Maga techniques can benefit your martial arts school, company, corporate team building events, or any other enquiries you may have about training or supplying martial arts equipment. <br /><br />Krav Maga is not like any of the other traditional martial arts systems. We don't train to compete, we train to survive!
