Krav Maga is Hebrew for close quarter combat; fighting for survival up close and personal.
The nation of Israel was born in a struggle.
Our patriarch Jacob wrestled with an angel in the from of a man. When he emerged victorious the angel changed Jacob's name to Israel, meaning "One who has wrestled with God", and said, "You have wrestled with God and with man and have prevailed." Ever since then the nation of Israel has been fighting for survival The ancient people of Israel were a nation of warriors. The Patriarch Abraham trained all the members of his household in combat. The sons of Jacob were fierce warriors and masters of the sword. The judges of Israel combined combat prowess with great wisdom. Ehud Ben Gerah the Judge was a master of the dagger. Deborah was a master of strategy.
Modern Krav Maga is a continuation of this ancient struggle.
