What is Krav Maga?
“So that one may walk in peace.” –Imi Lichtenfeld, founder of Krav Maga
The roots of the self-defense system date back to 1930’s Bratislava in what was then Czechoslovakia at the beginning of WWII during Nazi occupation of Europe. Imi Lichtenfeld, the son of a detective and chief instructor of police in what was then Czechoslovakia, was an active practitioner of boxing, Judo, wrestling, swimming, gymnastics, and all-around athlete. As violence towards Jewish civilians and other minorities increased with the rise of Nazism in Europe, Imi’s drive to create a survival system to defend civilians in the streets was honed and thus the roots of Krav Maga were planted.
