Krav Maga – the Art of Contact Combat

“Krav Maga. Meticulously practising the range of techniques taught to quickly and effectively immobilise your opponent. 

    The art of Israeli fighting – using your instincts to counter an attack. Delivering

circular and whip-like hand strikes. Kicking below waist level so as not to lose balance. 

     Learning the principle of ‘flying centre of gravity’, body swaying up and down, enabling pelvis and shoulders to spin on an axis. Sliding footwork similar to skating to quickly get away from my opponent. 

    Punches became harder. More precise, movements quicker. Using elbows to strike out. Reacting with inner arms to trap the limbs and immobilise.

    My body grew stronger, instincts increased. The senses amplified to detect movement, react to attacks. Muscles became more defined, mind free from distractions.

     Whenever I fatigued, one tablet would immediately rejuvenate. My one sole addiction, not being able to live without it. Not being able to destroy without it.”

Excerpt from The Legend Returns (a little taste on the second installment of the Annabella Cordova saga)

Krav Maga is made up of a variety of different fighting techniques, originally developed for the Israeli Defence Forces.
