4 Krav Maga Techniques for a Home-Based Self-Defense Workout
Get Fit and Stay Safe With an Empowering Krav Maga Workout
Your personal safety, and the safety of your family, is incredibly important. While you probably agree with this sentiment, chances are you haven't sought out self-defense training. Americans spend a lot of time each year participating in basic safety practices, from wearing seat belts to locking doors, but few actually take the time to learn how to physically defend themselves.
Lack of time, and even the fear of addressing scary circumstances, are reasons for this oversight, but being proactive about learning effective self-defense skills doesn't mean making a 10-year commitment to pursue a Black Belt. Practical training can be acquired easily and in a relatively short amount of time.
If you're unfamiliar with Krav Maga, it's the official self-defense system of the Israeli Army (IDF). The system was created in the 1940s, and the moves were designed specifically to be easy to learn, easy to execute, and easy to retain. It's considered a tactical system, not a martial art, and it's widely recognized as the most effective system of self-defense in the world.
Krav Maga techniques are meant to work regardless of the defender’s size, strength, gender, athletic ability, or fitness level. The moves, based on natural instincts and responses, are enhanced with repetition, ultimately ingrained into muscle memory. These moves have been proven effective in some of the most high-stress environments, such as combat, and one fantastic side effect from the training is that it’s a one-of-a-kind total body workout!
As with most self-defense training, it's best to practice Krav Maga techniques in a group class under the tutelage of a certified instructor, but you can get started on the basics trying this beginner-level Krav Maga workout at home. The moves are designed to give you a few basic tools to escape an attacker, while also raising your heart rate to make you break a sweat. Get comfortable with each move before practicing them as a workout. Once you feel solid on each technique, perform them all in order for two to three minutes.
