If you looking to learn self defence techniques or are just looking for a new exercise routine, check out Krav Maga. You can learn to protect yourself, improve your self-confidence, tone up, and burn calories, all at the same time.
Krav Maga is a unique Israeli form of ‘combat’ training intended to build both mental and physical aspects of a person’s self defence mechanism. Krav Maga originated from various forms of fighting techniques combined to derive a practical ‘street fighting’ style. Since then, Krav Maga has evolved into a disciplined self-defence training system and continuously refined by the Israeli Défense Forces to become an integral part of the formal training received by military personnel.
Krav Maga is a high intensity reality based martial art that burns calories and builds muscle tone. Like most exercise classes, Krav Maga sessions begin with a warmup and end with a cool down period, with plenty of training and aerobic exercise in between.
Krav Maga Taunton fitness classes are a great way to get you fighting fit. Krav Maga fitness programs use cardio training, pad work, and sports conditioning techniques to burn fat and improve muscle tone.
Krav Maga is based on simple principles and instinctive movements, it’s designed to teach real-life self defence tactics in the shortest possible time. You will learn to defend against common chokes, grabs and bear hugs, as well as against weapons such as knives, guns, and sticks.
The system is designed to teach people to function during the stress and shock of a sudden, violent physical encounter. You are not required to have any special skills or other martial arts training in order to effectively learn its style and techniques. Krav Maga is suited for everyone, women, men the very young or the more mature practitioner.
Krav Maga not only promotes learning how to fight but also teaches the important aspects of self defence such as personal awareness, threat evaluation and threat avoidance.
