Self-Defense Against an Unhealthy Lifestyle

Self Defense Against an Unhealthy Lifestyle

by Moran Laskov


My name is Moran Laskov – I’m a KMG Global Instructor Team (GIT), clinical dietitian, fitness instructor, nutritionist and healthy lifestyle lecturer.

In my mind, an unhealthy lifestyle is a collection of destructive habits which create a physical and mentally unbalanced living environment. This unbalance may lead to morbidity, damage our lifestyle and shorten our life expectancy.

Below, are 10 somewhat undesired habits that we must protect ourselves from and the “self-defense” methods against them.

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.

Mobility and stability 

By Peter Lakatos – Expert level 3 KMG international team of instructors


For sure you have heard these words, since most of the fitness trends are trying to explain their goals via mobility, stability balance and other concepts. 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.

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.

It’s easy to be happy when you are healthy and successful. But how about when you are in trouble? How would you behave? How would you deal with disappointment, failure and defeat?

While we, the writers, originally came from the worlds of martial arts, training of Governmental units and Special Forces and specialize in how to deal with conflicts, violence and combat, and except our academic backgrounds, like you, we live in a world where most confrontations aren’t violent or physical.

Active shooter defense – blog

Active shooter defense – blog from the Krav Maga world

Anyone who has done Krav Maga, even for just a short period of time, have realized that we are vulnerable to violent attacks from bad people if we are not vigilant and alert to our surroundings. Bad people want something we have; our resources, such as money and valuable things or even our life, and we sure want to stop them from getting them. This knowledge is perhaps one of the biggest reasons for anyone to start doing Krav Maga. Based on this realization, we train our body to become stronger and familiar with movements, and we train our mind to function under stress and make the right decisions. We do this in a dynamic environment against an empty-handed or armed assailant, with returning attackers, multiple attackers, in the dark, in a crowd, getting to safety, etc.

The Importance and Meaning of the Combat and Fighting Instructor Course

Combat & Fighting instructor course (CFIC) – Blog by Eyal Yanilov

Regarding Combat and Fighting, when we look at the basics of the self-defense section of KMG, we shall always start by teaching a certain technique. From there, we continue with understanding principles and creating variations for dealing with similar but different attacks and problems. This is followed by adding pre-fight and post-fight concepts and possibilities, training under stress, practicing during simulations under different conditions and more.
