Given that the system was originally developed for the Israeli armed forces, you know it has to be pretty effective. Krav Maga means “contact combat” in Hebrew, and that’s exactly what it is. Developed by Imi Lichtenfeld in the 1940s, when the Israeli Defense Forces were concurrently forming, Krav Maga was designed to be yet another weapon in a soldier’s arsenal. In other words, your body is a weapon, and it can defend against anything, including guns and knives.
