WHAT IS KRAV MAGA?

Israeli Self-Defense System

Krav Maga, Hebrew for “contact combat”, created by Imi Lichtenfeld and is the official self-defense and hand-to-hand combat system of Israel. Krav Maga is a very practical style of self-defense and is used by the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) to train soldiers and civilians to become efficient in a short amount of time.

Krav Maga is an aggressive, anti-terrorist survival system without rules. It deals with personal safety issues in the context of defending against both armed and unarmed attackers with only one objective: to eliminate the threat in the fastest way possible.

  • Counterattacking as soon as possible (or attacking preemptively).
  • Targeting attacks to the body’s most vulnerable points.
  • Maximum effectiveness and efficiency.

  • Maintaining awareness of surroundings.

WHY KRAV MAGA?

  • PRACTICAL AND INTUITIVE

    All techniques are built upon the body’s natural instincts. Martial arts are strongly based in ritual and as a result, often incorporate strange techniques. Krav is different, efficiency is the only concern. For this reason, many of the strikes and defenses utilize the same basic motion

  • IT’S NOT A MARTIAL ART

    Krav Maga was designed to be utilized against street attacks, muggings and sexual assaults. Krav Maga isn’t about being a tough guy, it’s not about learning how to fight in a ring, it’s about going home alive no matter what the situation is. There are no rules or illegal moves.

  • IT’S A GREAT EXERCISE

    Between the drills themselves and the conditioning, you are guaranteed a hell of a workout. Three minutes of throwing punches or knee strikes is exhausting. So is three minutes of burpees.
    Even diehard fitness enthusiasts will likely discover moves they haven’t seen before.

  • IT’S A VERY REWARDING HOBBY

    First, you have no idea how to throw a proper punch. After a couple weeks, you realize that you just started learning the basics. After a few months, you look back and you feel rewarded for the progress you made. Experiencing this progress is extremely satisfying.

With more than 20 years of Martial Arts experience, Vitor Ferreira needed more. Needed effectiveness and realism. The natural way was Krav Maga.
Since 2002 Vitor trained with several Krav Maga masters, such: Najim Elkebar (Krav Maga Academy), Richard Douieb (FEKM) and is representative in Portugal, which helped him to evolve his technique and interest in this fighting system.
After his arrival into Canada to be one of the FEKM (Federation European of Krav Maga) representatives in Canada, soon his work was rewarded and proudly accepted to be the Representative of the Israeli Federation (Krav Maga Core International) from Amnon Darsa and Haim Sasson.
“ People respect power and it comes in many forms, Krav Maga is power and people will respect you for knowing it.”
