Right everyone, for those of you who do not know anything about defensive tactics system, you will be interested to learn that Krav Maga is no nonsense, relaitic and a very effective training system which comes from Israel. The Mauritius Self Defense Federation has been appointed as the official and sole representative of Krav Maga within Mauritius.
Our goal as outlined by our Global Director Eyal Yanilov is to save lives and our mission is to be excellent.
The story behind Krav Maga?
For those of you who are not aware, Krav Maga was orginally developed by Imre Lichtenfeld for the Israeli Army. They needed something which was effective, realistic and that would not take years and years to learn. Imre ( or Sde ) as he is commonly known to Krav Maga Practitioners, used his boxing and wrestling background to set the foundations of Krav Maga. After he passed away, his mantle is now being assumed by Eyal Yanilov, the same one who created the civilian version of Krav Maga.
As such, we at Karv Maga Global, we are always looking for ways to improve and adapt the techniques so as to suit every one within society.
Why Krav Maga?
Let’s face it.
Around every street corner you walk you will always see signs such as Shokotan Karate ( Self Defense) or Taekwondo( Self Defense) etc etc. This was one of the first things that gets me really upset because unfortunately, these so called self defense experts are a dime a dozen. They either know nothing or are totally ignorant of what self defense is all about.
Now don’t get me wrong here, if someone loves katas etc then by all means embrace the traditional training, but this is not the same as street fighting. Many of these techniques are unfortunately outdated, unsafe and if used againt an experienced attacker will simply create more problems instead of resolving the situation. I once witnessed a taekwondo instructor in Mauritius instructing his students about how to kick a knife away from someone’s hands. That was absolutely shocking and utterly dangerous as well as plain stupid. What if that bloke had to handle someone schooled in kali?
Unfortunately there is a big gap in the market when it comes to self defense. I have had many requests from people who would like to know more about Krav Maga and I am writing this article, simply to educate people into the reality and the nastiness of street fights. Thugs are not going to be nice and you need to have the right training to fend them off. I myself have been attacked twice by skin heads and thanks to my Krav Maga and Sayoc Kali background was able to fend them off .
Krav Maga unlike many other martial arts has been battle tested and what we show to civilians or law enforcement officials etc have been proven to work time and time again. Never ever trust your security in the hands of those experts looking to make a quick buck because they do not understand the essence of self defense.
