Krav Maga which is Hebrew for "close combat," was originally developed by Imi Lichtenfield for the Israeli military.
IS KRAV MAGA RIGHT FOR YOU??
The principal objective of Krav Maga is to get practitioners regardless of age, size, or gender, to a level of self-defence proficiency in a relatively short period of time. While designed for soldiers with little time for hand to hand combat training, the methods and techniques used in Krav Maga are a perfect fit for the busy lifestyles of today's citizens who do not have the time or inclination to devote years to training.
JU-JITSU - PERSONAL SECURITY
So you're interested in Ju-Jitsu? Ju-Jitsu is one of the most interesting and diverse martial art styles around. Unlike other styles such as Karate or Judo, you're not restricted to learning just how to punch and kick or throw. Ju-Jitsu involves all kinds of techniques from punching, kicking, joint locks, and ground-work.
Self-Defence: Ju-Jitsu is a generic Self-Defence system.
JU-JITSU FOR FITNESS, SELF-CONFIDENCE OR FUN:
Self-Confidence is probably one area that most people don't automatically think will improve due to training in the martial arts. However, even after just a month of training, most people will suddenly realise that their self-confidence has improved dramatically. This is what makes martial arts ideal for youngsters!
Ju-Jitsu training will help improve your fitness level and build muscles (some of which you never realised you had)! whilst actually having fun doing it, and meeting some great new friends. Most clubs are small communities of people, all there to have a good time and to learn many skills, getting fit is simply a by-product.
