Mastering Krav Maga is not simply about self-defense moves and counterattacks; it’s about understanding real-world violent situations. While other defensive styles prepare to defend, for example, against a shove or single-punch attack, MKM emphasizes that real-world situational training must give you a fighting chance to survive nearly any dangerous situation.  This includes defending against adversaries who are trained fighters, sometimes many in number, who may also be wielding weapons.
