Krav Maga (“contact combat” in Hebrew) was developed in the 1930s, combining the most effective techniques and philosophy from various martial arts and fight training. It was originally taught to the Israeli Army, and instruction for civilians began in the late 70s. Multiple forms of Krav Maga continue today: civilian (self-defense), law enforcement (arrest or detain), and military.
Why Krav Maga for Law Enforcement?
Krav Maga enhances the established basic techniques taught to law enforcement by improving the ability to prevent an engagement and the most effective techniques to defend against a hostile act. The law enforcement community is guided by specific techniques of control because their mission is to control & apprehend. However when an individual officer finds him/herself in a defensive, life-threatening situation Krav Maga provides the last resort tactics an officer can utilize to save their own life. Krav Maga is not an art; it utilizes and enhances an individual’s natural reaction to deliver the most effective and efficient techniques to defend themselves.
Law enforcement has the most dynamic and challenging mission of keeping the peace. Each situation encountered requires control utilizing a range from verbal to physical tactics. The parameters that law enforcement must maintain are staying in compliance with the appropriate force for a given situation (force continuum). What Krav Maga for law enforcement provides is the control and defensive tactics to deal with various situations. We focus on developing the identification of a deteriorating situation, prevention and finally defense against a threat. When faced with a life-threatening encounter, the most dangerous situations require combative methods or what is referred to as last resort tactics.
Krav Maga was developed from real world combative engagements by law enforcement, military and civilians. We have law enforcement personnel train in the equipment configuration that they utilize on duty.
