Krav Maga at Traverse City ATA Martial Arts: Get Fit & Learn to Protect Yourself.

Krav Maga teaches self-defense skills you can use in the real world.

Krav Maga was originally developed for use by the Israeli military. It combines techniques from boxing, savate, Muay Thai, Wing Chun, Judo, Jiu-Jitsu, wrestling, and grappling.

The primary goal of Krav Maga is to neutralize the threat as quickly and efficiently as possible - anything goes. There is very little fighting etiquette to learn and an emphasis is placed on attacking vulnerable soft tissues and pressure points, such as the eyes, neck or throat, face, solar plexus, groin, ribs, knee, foot, and fingers.
