Mastering Krav Maga is not simply about self-defense moves and counterattacks, it’s about understanding circumstantial, behavioral and criminal mindsets of real-world situations. While other defensive styles prepare you for a single-punch or an MMA fighter, MKM understands that real-world situational acumen gives you a fighting chance when you most need it. Moreover, in just minutes-a-day, Krav Maga seeks to make you aware of your surroundings, your mindset and the ability to be agile because as on the streets, Krav Maga has no rules. It is irrefutable that you need only learn a few core tactics to be an effective fighter. Simple is easy. Easy is effective. Effective is what is required to end a violent encounter quickly, decisively, and on your terms.
In 2015 David Kahn, the United States Chief Instructor of Israeli Krav Maga (IKM) and author of six award-winning krav maga books, began his mission to bring true Israeli Krav Maga training online. Kahn having formally trained all five branches of the U.S. military, the Royal Marines, the Italian Marines, as well as Federal, State, and Local Law Enforcement agencies knew one important core tenet brought about IKM’s founder Imi Lichtenfeld and successor Grandmaster Haim Gidon that real-world self-defense comes from the use of natural movements and reactions for defense, combined with immediate, seamless, overwhelming and decisive counterattacks.
Many online training programs aren’t given much credibility:
“You can’t train yourself or by yourself” — At Mastering Krav Maga (MKM) we partially agree with this point. We adhere to the philosophy of Founder Imi Lichtenfeld, “so one may walk peace.” Therefore, we advocate that you train with a partner who seeks to both challenge you as necessary and grow with you. While much of the training we have within our membership CAN be done without a partner, you’ll make more significant strides when educating through proper instruction and repetition with a partner who wishes to progress with you. This, of course, means as your collective levels improve, to attack with increasing levels of speed and force along with serious intent to help your partner improve.
“You can’t learn effectively without a trained instructor” — At MKM, we wholeheartedly agree. We have one of the world’s most premier Krav Maga tacticians, authors, and instructors at the helm of our programming — United States Chief Instructor David Kahn. David not only understands the shortcomings of learning in a strictly silo oriented environment, but has developed many programming parameters for you to maximize your effectiveness regardless of if you are training independently or within a group setting.
Unique to MKM, we serve specialized content directly to law enforcement (LEO) and Military professionals*. David has trained hundreds of law enforcement agencies trained including the U.S. Marshals Service, FBI, DEA, the United States Coast Guard Police, New Jersey State Police, New Jersey Transit Police, Pennsylvania State Police, Philadelphia Police Department, Pennsylvania Game Commission, Amtrak Police, DOD Police, US Secret Service, and ATF.
Real world self-defense demands core easy-to-learn fundamentals of survival. Importantly, Krav Maga when properly taught does not require superior physical abilities. The tactics must work for all and be effective regardless of the defender’s strengths or weaknesses. Few, if any, other martial arts can claim this level of ability. Krav Maga, when properly taught and practiced, is proven to be one of the world’s most premiere self-defense disciplines.
Most martial arts practitioners agree that at some point in their journey they wish to expand their training to acquire a greater diversity of skills. Many of these practitioners choose Krav Maga because quite simply it works in the real world. It’s practicality, movement efficiency, and brutal effectiveness make it a prime directive for most who thirst for knowledge. What better place than MKM can the “force multiplier” of Krav Maga be taught? Contained within your subscription are the keys for you to take your current training to a new level. THIS is the latest Krav Maga directly from Israel.
No, Krav Maga was created with a blended hybridization of numerous other disciplines that it, in fact, can bolster almost any style.
There’s simply no perfect defense against a gunman. That said, there’s a reason why security professionals, law enforcement, military, and specialty branches look to Krav Maga to survive these situations. In short, Krav Maga gives you the greatest chance of surviving an attacker threatening you with a gun, edged weapon or impact weapon. By design, MKM weapon defenses are specific, and, yet, adaptable to handle the fluidity and unpredictability of combat. General principles are applied and customized to suit the needs of a particular situation. Each defense combines deflection-redirections, evasive actions, and simultaneous or near-simultaneous counter-attacks with extreme prejudice to incapacitate the opponent. Optimally, krav maga does not allow an assailant to get the drop on you.
