About Krav Maga ReaX
REQUIREMENT: P2 OR HIGHER
Krav Maga requires physical, technical and cognitive skills. You have to scan the area, understand what is happening, and make split second decisions as your body moves. Practicing Krav Maga also enhances ones fitness and coordination. The IKMF ReaX Program incorporates the cognitive component for the first time. Using a unique approach and state of the art technology (Nike Vapor Strobe), this program trains your body and brain at the same time. The combination of the tool and training methods enables you a complete experience. The tool we use, the Nike Vapor Strobe, allows to block visual information by creating a flicker effect at different levels of difficulty. This effect trains the brain to anticipate the movement of the ball or an opponent in the short durations that your vision is blocked. Whether you are interested in IKMF’s Krav Maga Tactical Fitness course (Krav Maga without contact), or Krav Maga for self-defense course, improving cognitive capabilities could be of benefit to you. This new and unique training program was developed in collaboration with Dr. Erez Morag. Dr. Morag has been developing training technologies for the past 20 years and led the cognitive training division in Nike.
Krav Maga is an effective, modern, and dynamic self-defense and fighting system. It is designed to be practical and intuitive for people of any age, shape, or size. Krav Maga means “contact combat”, and is focused on being the most effective and efficient means for dealing with all types of attacks.
“Embraced by the FBI and SWAT teams alike, Krav Maga is also a staple of high-end gyms across the globe, where a faster-paced and less-combative version provides a workout that could literally save your life.” – TIME Magazine

A choke has three purposes:
* Prevent blood flow to the brain
* Restrict the victim’s ability to breathe
* Control the victim
In this situation, the attacker is doing all of the above while facing and pushing the victim.
