Soldiers training in the early morning in the base of IDF
Krav Maga has been developed to enhance fighting skills of each soldiers in IDF.
The techniques and the spirit of Krav Maga has been taught to the soldiers on duty until now.
Teaching Krav Maga to soldiers in IDF was what the invited instructor, Mr. Cohen had been doing.
He is 100% professional without doubt.
*Experience the ORIGIN of Krav Maga in Japan
Krav Maga is originated from IDF, and now it is the contact combat that the specialists choose for their duty, not only the military and the police in Israel but also ones in the US and Europe.
Yet this is not from an official source, even Japanese police, the Self Defense Forces, and Japan Coast Guard currently chose Krav Maga to maintain safety in our country.
Like Maga Gym, there are a lot of gyms in the world teaching Krav Maga as self defense techniques for civilian.
As long as Krav Maga is being used in the field, those are REAL, however, it is also true that it has been changed (improved) by local cultures or instructors’ martial arts background during the process of expansion.
However, this workshop will show you the ORIGIN of Krav Maga by former IDF Krav Maga instructor.
You will find almost no difference between the Krav Maga taught in IDF and in this workshop by Mr. Cohen.
This is truly a great opportunity to experience Krav Maga ORIGIN = “ORIGINAL Krav Maga” in Japan.
*Techniques could be changed but the spirit never changes
Mr. Cohen says “Regarding techniques, there could be different depends on where you learn and whom you learn from since it’s been changing in the world.
However, what has NOT been changed is the “mental behavior” to overcome dangers, and the ability to react immediately.
