Not martial arts
The sound of Krav Maga is an instant reminder of several martial arts generally seen in sports arena in modern day. It involves traditional and dogmatic approach, that makes it competitive enough to be recognized as a sport. It is also bounded by established rules to keep the sportsman spirit up for good.
Krav Maga on the other hand does not rely on the principles of martial arts. It is simply an easy way to learn fighting technique that can be applied for self-defense purpose at needful times. Principles of Krav Maga propagate the use of techniques that are based on instincts. Such techniques must be accessible to an average person. They must address any immediate danger and make use of defense and attack techniques simultaneously.
During training, it is important to note that Krav Maga is not mainly intended to be used as a sport where certain moves are restricted and codes are followed. It has to emulate the stress of a street fight. Thus, stress training is another key aspect of Krav Maga.
Krav Maga doesn’t involve predicting an opponent’s move as much as assigning a defense move specific to an attack. It is much more random in nature. The goal of Krav Maga training is to improve a fighter’s ability to act according to the situation.
