GET IN THE BEST SHAPE OF YOUR LIFE AND MASTER REAL FIGHTING TECHNIQUES WITH ADVANCED KRAV MAGA

Based on the principles of enhancing natural instincts and using appropriate force for self-protection and weapons defense, anyone can master the moves of krav maga – the international self-defense Martial Arts and physical fitness sensation designed by the Israel Defense Forces. This follow up to Krav Maga: An Essential Guide to the Renowned Method - for Fitness and Self-Defense, explores essential combative tactics including standing, clinch, and extensive groundwork from yellow, orange and green belt levels, to help you update and improve your skills. In this guide to advance techniques and training, David Kahn will teach you:

*How krav maga saved Ernest Kovary, Imi Lichtenfeld's oldest living student, the day WWII began
*The mindset of effective self-defense
*Upper and lower body combatives and defenses
*Powerful retzev workouts
*New techniques for mastering escapes against chokes, grabs, and takedowns
*Krav maga groundwork and instruction
*Women's self-defense principles

Regardless of strength, size, age, or gender, you can learn advanced techniques for fending off any attacker – swiftly, powerfully, and simply. And the conditioning you will achieve by practicing these techniques will tone your muscles, improve your reflexes, and get you fighting fit.
From the American expert and Israeli Grandmaster Haim Gidon's United States representative in the fitness and combat techniques of krav maga, this is the most up to date, authoritative, and advanced guide to real fighting techniques and rigorous conditioning.

INTRODUCTION

I am proud to present Advanced Krav Maga: The Next Level of Fitness and Self-Defense. I would like to thank the countless readers and krav maga enthusiasts worldwide who contacted the Israeli Krav Maga Association and me directly following the publication of Krav Maga: An Essential Guide to the Renowned Methodfor Fitness and Self-Defense. Israeli krav maga is an integral part of my life. I hope this next volume will continue to enhance and instill the Israeli fighting and self-defense method as a dynamic part of your life as well. Here, you will learn real fighting technique combined with rigorous and rewarding conditioning benefits.

The Next Level

In this volume, we continue to develop a self-defense fighting arsenal based on core yellow-, orange-, and green-belt techniques defending against unarmed attacks. These techniques derive from my translation of the Israeli Krav Maga Association (IKMA) technique guidelines. The IKMA is the governing body for Israeli krav maga, recognized by the Israeli government and headed by Grandmaster Haim Gidon. Grandmaster Gidon, the instructor’s instructor, holds a tenth-degree black belt (red belt), the highest rank in krav maga. While improving the krav maga system daily, Haim follows founder Imi Lichtenfeld’s fundamental premise that krav maga must work for everyone even against the most skilled adversaries. Any representation that a complete or ultimate guide to krav maga exists is a fallacy. Israeli krav maga is constantly refined and developed by Grandmaster Gidon and the IKMA professional committee. Constant improvement, evolution, and adaptability make krav maga a most formidable fighting system, and the genius of the system is that anyone can learn the core self-defense and fighting principles.

While space and text restraints do not allow us to illustrate the all important retzev, or continuous combat follow-through, we have taken a few techniques and developed partial retzev to provide you with a more comprehensive insight into combined defense and attack through continuous combat motion, the heart of the Israeli krav maga system (the term krav maga means “contact combat”). The following tables serve as a summary and reference for the Israeli krav maga system’s philosophy, tactics, and strategy.

I hope you enjoy reading this volume as much as I enjoyed writing it. Remember, train hard and be safe.
