What is Krav maga

Krav Maga is a practical and tactical self-defence system that teaches you how to prevent and deal with violent and aggressive attacks.  The system is quickly becoming one of the most popular and effective forms of self-defence training in Ireland.  Techniques are based on natural instinctive movements, so are easy to learn & retain in a stressful, attack situation.

Developed in Israel under realistic demands and conditions, KMG (Krav Maga Global) training programmes include:

  • self-defense
  • self-protection
  • fighting and combat skills
  • 3rd party protection – defending others


KMG Krav Maga courses deliver professional Krav Maga instruction suitable for children, teens, women and men of all ages.  All KMG Ireland instructors are fully qualified, certified and insured and we are committed to teaching safe techniques in controlled environments.  As the teaching process is an essential part of Krav Maga, all instructors are required to update their methodology and training skills on a regular basis.

Krav Maga (History)


Krav Maga was originally developed by Imi Lichtenfeld (Sde-Or) in the 1940s for the Israeli Defence Forces – it continues to be advanced and modified today by KMG Chief Instructor Eyal Yanilov and a team of Global instructors.  Using a unique logical approach, self-defence techniques have been modified for civilian use.  Krav Maga is also used by law-enforcement officers, military personnel, security officers, antiterrorists groups, air-marshals and special and commando units around the world.
