BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

Krav Maga is a form of martial arts self-defense practice that incorporates elements of boxing, judo, and jujitsu into a non-combative exercise. First developed in Checkslovakia, Krav Maga migrated to Isreal, where it is currently used as a standard form of training for the Isreali Security Forces.

Now, it has captured the attention of Westerners who want to learn how to protect themselves in case of an attack and/or get in shape. Krav Maga fans include Jennifer Lopez and Bar Rafaeli. There are Krav Maga studios and certified instructors all over the United States, as well as books and DVDs for self-training.

Part of Krav Maga's lure is its cardiovascular workout and its versatility. You will be in a state of continuous motion as you work with a partner or a punching bag to practice swift kicks, focused punches and other attack/defense moves. Circuit training of running in place, doing push-ups and navigating through obstacles are also typical components of a Krav Maga class.

A typical Krav Maga class lasts for about an hour.


Krav Maga is an Isreali self-defense technique that has also turned into a popular form of exercise. Using non-combative moves and lots of heart-pumping cardio work, Krav Maga has thousands of fans who are attracted to its versatility and powerful workouts.
