A Beginner's Guide to Krav Maga

Welcome to North West Krav Maga. This quick guide has been designed to help ensure your journey into the world of Krav Maga is a pleasure.

What is Krav Maga?

It is a combat system, not a martial art. It was developed to help ordinary citizens and professionals in protecting themselves and their dear ones. Its core principle is to arm a layperson with a set of simple, effective moments that would work under highly stressful assault situations.

Krav Maga is trusted by people from all walks of life – civilians, soldiers, law enforcement, security personnel, and close protection officers.

Who Can Learn Krav Maga?

It is for everyone. There are no upper age limits, no fitness criteria. Most health issues won't prevent you from learning so long as you discuss your condition with your instructor and follow his guidance. At North West Krav Maga, our students include men, women and people of all ages.

Controlled Risks

There's an inherent risk associated with combative training. However, in a Krav Maga class, the risks are controlled and managed to make sure you steer clear of injuries. Your North West Krav Maga Instructor is a trained professional with years of experience in teaching Krav Maga. It is our job to make sure you have an authentic experience without sustaining any injury. However, expect the odd bruise or body ache in the first month. Other than that, serious injuries are very rare.

Your Fitness Level

You do not have to be fit to begin your Krav journey. Your North West Krav Maga Instructor will make you physically fit and strong so you can implement the techniques with confidence and ease. Krav Maga will make a world of difference to your fitness level, and helps people in with their weight loss and fitness goals.

Choosing a Good Krav Maga School

It is vital to choose the right Krav Maga school. Lots of schools are mushrooming without any appropriate experience or training in Krav Maga. Don't join any martial arts school that offers Krav Maga as an option. Keep these pointers in mind when choosing a Krav Maga school.
