The Six Pillars of Krav Maga
SIMULTANEOUS DEFENSE AND ATTACK
Combine your defense and offense into one complete strategy.
FOCUS ON VULNERABLE SOFT TISSUE
Counter-attack the vulnerable areas of your opponent’s body including the groin, eyes, and throat.
RETZEV CONTINUOUS COMBAT MOTION
Move fast, continuously, seamlessly and determinedly to overwhelm your attacker giving him no time to react.
A BUILDING BLOCK LEARNING PROCESS
Learn one elemental technique at a time and then build on it over time.
Be both decisive and quick in responding to a violent encounter. Do whatever is necessary to overcome a dangerous threat.
If possible, use subduing techniques to de-escalate a situation quickly.
