Krav Maga, a self-defense system used by both the Israeli Defense Forces and law-enforcement officers in the United States, teaches students how to react physically and mentally in dangerous situations. Muscles develop strength and instincts, swiftly gaining proficiency in the basic techniques of the discipline and the ability to respond to punches, kicks, and aggressive hair tousling.
