Unthinkable is, in brief, a tour of the dark side of criminal violence.

What is Krav Maga?

KRAV MAGA is an eclectic fighting system from Israel that focuses on winning in “real life” combat situations. Krav Maga is a defensive tactics system that can be learned quickly and easily by anyone and practitioners gain proficiency very rapidly. Krav Maga uses strikes, kicks, wrestling and many other techniques including defenses against weapons such as guns and knives. It is the official defensive tactics system utilized by the Israel Defense Force (IDF). The name in Hebrew can be translated as “contact combat”.

Krav Maga encourages students to avoid confrontation. If this is impossible or unsafe, it promotes finishing a fight as quickly as possible. Attacks are aimed at the most vulnerable parts of the body, and training is not limited to techniques that avoid severe injury; some even permanently injure or cause death to the opponent. Drills provide maximum safety to students by the use of protective equipment and the use of reasonable force.

Principles in Krav Maga include:

  • Simultaneous defense and counter attack or attacking preemptively when justifiable.
  • Targeting the body’s most vulnerable points, such as: the eyes, neck or throat, face, solar plexus, groin, ribs, knee, foot, fingers, etc.
  • Maximum effectiveness and efficiency in order to neutralize the opponent as quickly as possible.
  • Maintaining awareness of surroundings while dealing with the threat in order to look for escape routes, additional attackers, objects that could be used to defend or help attack, and so on.
