The Origins of Krav Maga
Krav Maga was developed from the street-fighting experience of Hungarian-Israeli martial artist Imi Lichtenfeld. Using his experience as a boxer and wrestler, Imi defended the Jewish Quarter against fascist groups in Bratislava, Czechoslovakia in the mid-1930s, developing his moves through years of fighting experience. When he migrated to Israel in the late 1940s, he began to provide lessons on combat training to what would become the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). This is when the practice flourished into the advanced institution it has become today, and over the years, it has built on its original base in Western boxing, wrestling, and street fighting. It has even been adopted by military forces from other countries, including Britain and the United States.
