Krav Maga for Women

Krav Maga has been developed to meet the specific needs and requirements of each type of individual. Krav Maga for women is characterized by its effectiveness. Size, strength and power are important realities in self-defense training. Most women will be confronted by threats who have a physical advantage in these 3 areas.KMG - Women Krav Maga

Krav Maga is an effective response to potential –or active- violence even when the attacker has this physical advantage. 


Techniques and Tactics in Krav Maga for Women

When training women, one has to take into account a woman’s ability to improve and excel despite her own common misconception of her ability to fight and face physical challenges that require strength or aggressiveness.

KMG ‘s training methods for women are based on years of experience, as well as numerous real-life situations in which women found our system to be the most effective. Our Krav Maga for women system provides excellent self-defense skills, producing the highest rate of defense successes in facing various types of attacks. In addition to the technical and tactical training required to gain Krav Maga skills, it is also needed that women acquire the appropriate mental capabilities to support their physical readiness to fight. This includes developing an attitude that allows for determination, persistence and aggression to become a part of the woman’s natural state of mind whenever needed.
