“Eat, Sleep, Krav Maga, Repeat”: 12 Days in the birthplace of Krav Maga
 

Eat, Sleep, Krav Maga, Repeat

A guest blog by Marianne Brink

 

I have been on a very exciting and life-changing journey for the last 3.5 years since I started training Krav Maga. In that time, I had a desire to be able to pass it on to others. Then, last year it was decided that I would go on the instructors course, and after that decision was made, the next big step was to decide where and when to take the General Instructors Course (GIC).

Climbing the KMG Ladder Like an Expert

It’s been 8 years since I started Krav Maga. And so, with my recent level up to Expert, I’d like to write a little about my experiences, appreciation and acknowledgments.

Now, that everything had some time to sink, it was easier to put everything into words. I have a tendency to write books, so this is an attempt to keep it short.

Strengthening Your Grip
 

Strengthening Your Grip

By Peter Lakatos

So you pair up with this guy, and you know it is going to hurt.

The subject is pistol threat from the front, and every single time he takes your gun you feel like you are loosing a finger, and your wrist is starting to hurt. You ask him, what is his profession, and turns out he is a plumber, a carpenter, a car mechanic. No, it is never the office guy. Yep, I know the feeling.

Main Principles of Krav Maga as WE in KMG act and follow (short version)
 

Lately I have been thinking about the main principles of Krav Maga as they were taught to me and later added by myself over the last twenty years. It is my belief that understanding the principles of Krav Maga is important for a greater knowledge of krav maga as a system and for you to have in mind when you are training.

 

There are technical and tactical principles when it comes to defending yourself, or others, as well as principles that are directed to our way of life in combat.

 

Perhaps the first and most important principles is that you must strive to win so that the enemy/aggressor/criminal will not be able to continue. Secondly, you need to aim in order to avoid, prevent or de-escalate the situation you are facing, especially in self-defense. Do not forget, if you need to act, act decisively and correctly according to the danger presented.

  • In fighting and in combat – inflict maximum damage to your enemy, with minimum time spent, while sustaining minimum harm to yourself.
  • In 3rdparty protection – protect your loved ones at all costs.
  • Always act according to the law of the country you are in.

Not many tough has any clear idea about them, and following Gray Cook and Lee Burton – the founders of FMS – is pretty much always a good idea.

MOVEMENT QUALITY / LOWERING THE RISK OF INJURY – By Peter Lakatos
 

MOVEMENT QUALITY / LOWERING THE RISK OF INJURY

By Peter Lakatos

 

The screen generally used in preparation typically focuses on the quantitative movement values of the athlete. Strength, strength endurance, speed, reaction time, power, power-endurance, power – just to name a few areas that are possible to test. In this blog I will talk about the importance of movement quality.

Most people forget that every sport has risks, and a training program started with movement of bad quality has the risk of non-contact injuries. Thus an FMS measurement is recommended at the beginning of the program and then every month, and the discovered problems should be improved with corrective exercises. Of course FMS is not a medical test, so a sport medical or other – cardio-logical – check-up can be done prior to the preparation on-demand. But sport-specific sight-testing also has a place here as sight/perception/reaction are of high priority in these sports.

Imi’s Coffee Shop And Favorite Cake – Blog by Eyal Yanilov
 

A personal story about my experience with Imi

Well, he didn’t own a cake shop, he just used to visit it on a daily basis. When I met Imi he was 64 years old, already retired from military service for 10 years, and he shared his 2 training locations; one in Tel-Aviv and the other in Netanya to his students. So, as a retired gentleman who wasn’t teaching anymore, he had lots of spare time to fill up with his habits, such as sitting almost every morning in a coffee shop. When I became Imi’s right hand, it was in the early 80’s of the last century. We used to meet at his home or in his favorite coffee shop in Netanya called “UGATI” which means “My Cake” in Hebrew. It was considered an establishment to be owned by an Hungarian couple, who had the knowledge to make cakes and coffee like Imi used to consume daily in his hometown. We had there our favorite cake, its name was RIGO YANCHI – and it was probably the tastiest cake I’ve ever had.
