Why Krav Maga is a Great Self-Defence System

Hey everyone! We’ve been getting great feedback on our Krav Maga program and we just wanted to tell you all thank you! All of the positive feedback shows that we have one of the best programs in Mississauga.

In honour of such, we wanted to talk a bit more about our Krav program, and why Krav Maga is one of the best self-defence systems in the world.

After reading through these benefits, we hope you will come try it out yourself and experience first-hand why we have the best program in Mississauga.

Be Aware of Your Surroundings

We all know Mississauga is a great place to live, but there are some areas that aren’t the best to go. An important self-defence skill is being aware of your surroundings, and Krav Maga teaches this.

Krav teaches you to always be aware and know what’s around you. Knowing this skill will make you better prepared to defend yourself if a bad situation ever arises.

Switch to Fight Mode

In effective martial arts like Krav Maga, you learn the skill of switching to fight mode. This is the ability to switch from your normal, passive state to one where you are ready to defend yourself.

Just like how a professional fighter gets into fight mode, you must do the same in a self-defence situation. When your life is in danger, you cannot hold back; you do whatever you can to save your life.

Krav Maga is Well Rounded

One of the best aspects of Krav Maga is how well rounded of a martial art it is. Martial arts like Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) or boxing are great for what they are, but they’re missing key elements to be well rounded.

Krav took elements from many of the best martial arts to make a multifaceted and effective system: everything from the striking from boxing and Muay Thai, the throws from Judo, and, of course, weapons training.

Having the ability to grapple, strike, and use weapons will make you feel more secure whenever you go out in Mississauga.

Krav Maga is Practical

Above all things that makes Krav Maga exceed over other self-defence systems is that it is practical.

A martial art like MMA is phenomenal, but it has one major flaw: it isn’t practical for a real life situation. Instructors teach MMA within the confines of a sport, where the participants respect the rules set in place.

Krav Maga was created for real life situations, where anything can happen and you have to be prepared to do anything.

Finish the Fight Quickly

When you practice Krav Maga, you learn to finish the fight quickly. The longer a fight goes, the chances of you getting hurt or killed go up infinitely.

That is why you cannot take any chances and must develop skills to finish a fight as quickly as possible. Krav teaches you this by focusing on attacking your most vulnerable parts of the body.

This includes:

  • Eyes
  • Groin
  • Liver
  • Throat
  • Ears
  • Fingers
  • Knees
  • Nose
  • Solar Plexus

Weapons Training & Defence

Probably the biggest thing that Krav Maga has over other self-defence systems is that it includes weapons training and defence. There’s a lot of great martial arts out there, but they do not all include proper weapons training.

Weapons training and defence is a major aspect of Krav Maga that makes it so effective. The creator of Krav, Imi Lichtenfeld understood that there’s nothing stopping your enemy from using a weapon against you.

That is why Krav Maga is arguably the best self-defence system in the world. You not only know how to strike and grapple, but also learn to use and defend yourself against weapons.

Are You Convinced?

These benefits are why Krav Maga is one of the best self-defence systems in the world. It is a complete system that makes you prepared to deal with whatever could threaten your life.

If we convinced you that Krav is incredibly effective, we would love for you to come try a class so we can prove to you why we have the best program in Mississauga.

Thank you and we’ll see you on the mats!
