Krav Maga is a form of self-defense founded by Imrich (Imi) Lichtenfeld originally for the benefit of the Israel Defense Forces.

Krav Maga is Hebrew for “Contact Combat” This self-defense system focuses on sharpening natural instincts and applying them to life-like training scenarios. The U.S Military has utilized Krav Maga to train soldiers in a new form of Close Quarters Hand to Hand combat. Law Enforcement uses Krav Maga as a threat-neutralizer. Civilians learn Krav Maga for optimal self-defense and conditioning.

Texas State Krav Maga will offer several individual classes for learning different features of Krav Maga. Such features include a lecture portion to enhance awareness of the individual’s surroundings and the ability to avoid escalations and dangerous states of social interaction. There are also features focusing on the physical knowledge that comes with the Krav Maga technique, such as chokes, wrist grabs, head locks, and other forms of defensive action.

This course is open to any student, faculty or staff member of Texas State University who would like to improve their basic self-defense. Safety is an ever increasing necessity for individuals to learn and this provides a free and easy method for learning more efficient ways to protect yourself.
