    Super Stars and Me

    Krav Maga may very well have been around since its conception the 1930’s by a young Hungarian male living amongst persecution and oppression in Bratislava. Yet compared to other self defence or martial arts systems, Krav Maga is still largely unknown about to those outside of the self defence, martial arts world. What I mean by this, is that if you’re talking to a group of several people or friends and you were to mention that you study Karate, or boxing or judo, they would know instantly what you were talking about. Say you study Krav Maga and I’m pretty sure someone there, probably more than one person there would ask the question “What’s Krav ....

Obviously, the attacker doesn’t search for the meanest, biggest, hardest looking person to start a fight with. No person of course not. He is not going to start a fight if he thinks he'll end up being beaten. What the attackers look for is an easy target. An easy target is not necessarily a big attacker against a smaller or weaker appearing oppo nent, but also anyone who isn't aware of his surroundings such as ....

  • Krav Maga Oxford and Me

    Krav Maga Oxford and Me hi I'm Lee Markham, this is my story about Krav Maga and me.

He told me, ‘That’s because they all learn Krav Maga, it’s like a military full of James Bonds and Jason Bourne only that they do it for real’. That was it, I finally knew the name of the lethal effective self defence system I had always watched in awe, and I ....
