Krav Maga

Krav Maga is a military self-defense and fighting system developed for the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) and Israeli security forces derived from a combination of techniques sourced from aikido, boxing, wrestling, judo, and karate.

Krav Maga is known for its focus on real-world situations and its extreme efficiency. It was derived from the street-fighting experience of Hungarian-Israeli martial artist Imi Lichtenfeld, who made use of his training as a boxer and wrestler, while defending the Jewish quarter against fascist groups in Bratislava, Czechoslovakia, during the mid-to-late 1930s. In the late 1940s, following his migration to Palestine, he began to provide lessons on combat training to what was to become the IDF.

      Krav Chats Ep.7 - Gershon Ben Keren - Krav Chats

      In this episode, Krav Maga Systems Hong Kong Instructor Nils Beiskjær speaks to Gershon Ben Keren. Gershon frequently uses his knowledge on psychology and real-world experience as a security professional to break down and rebuild stagnant paradigms in the Krav Maga and Self-defence Industry. His aim is to help people bridge the gap between the reality of violence and the framework that makes Krav Maga great. In this podcast, Gershon addresses this perspective and explains why it's so important to ensure your training (and teaching) is supporting what you can expect to face in a real situation. A bit about Gershon: Gershon Ben Keren is a 5th Degree Black Belt with over 20 years of experience in Krav Maga, he's a security professional, a second-degree black belt in Judo, runs his own school (Krav Maga Yashir in Boston, USA), AND has a Masters in Psychology. On top of this, he has authored popular books about Krav Maga. Like this podcast?
