Pure Krav Maga – London


Krav Maga, which means Hand to Hand Combat in Hebrew, is a constantly evolving training system first developed in the Israeli Defence Forces. The first IDF Fighting Fitness Academy Krav Maga Chief Instructor was Imrich Lichtenfeld (Immi Sde-Or). Second, was Eli Avikzar, and third was Boaz Aviram.

The system was designed to create a close quarter fighter within a short period of time which will prevail, hand to hand, against an enemy with years of martial art or street fighting experience.

Krav Maga is built on the principles of human physiology, psychology and reaction time. Rather than repeatedly drilling in rigid engagement techniques, Krav Maga students learn to analyze a hostile environment, stop the opponents’ capabilities according to his posture, selecting the appropriate action, within split second before the engagement.

We pride ourselves on teaching Krav Maga techniques that work in real life situations and not teaching things that looks good, but does not work.

We teach to students working within the protection fields, with direct front line experience and those who just want to learn for self-development. We are one of a few groups within the UK that facilitate students access to live fire and small arms use at a private range within the UK. For more information click here…
