What is Krav Maga?

Krav Maga is a constantly evolving practical self-defence system that originated in Israel – and is known for being powerful, efficient and easy to learn.

Krav Maga is the self-defence and close quarter combat system of choice among Special Forces units, military units and law enforcement agencies like the CIA, FBI and the British Royal Marines.  Krav Maga is also practiced by ordinary men and women worldwide, for the simple reason that it works for anyone and can be learned easily and used successfully.

Elite Defence Academy Krav Maga

Krav Maga classes presented by Elite Defence Academy are suitable for adults and teenagers. Our krav maga training enables even a physically smaller person to successfully defend against much larger attackers.  Elite Defence Academy krav maga classes include awareness training, safe behaviour and intelligent physical self-defence components. 

Krav maga instructors and members at Elite Defence Academy are open minded and encouraged to constantly seek better ways of doing things - simpler, more effective techniques and in particular, the universal principles underlying all effective forms of self-defence. Elite Defence Academy has built up an enviable reputation as South Africa’s premier self-defence training organisation. We offer on-going weekly Krav Maga classes, seminars, krav maga workshops, specialist self-defence courses and krav maga personal training that has literally changed the lives of thousands of people.

Krav Maga classes

Our krav maga classes are safe and user-friendly, and while we take our training seriously, our culture is one of fun, community, responsibility, mutual respect and camaraderie.
Krav Maga is used in various forms by Special Forces and military units around the world – precisely because it is easy to learn and devastatingly effective. It is ideal for all ages and levels of fitness. We teach you how to control your adrenaline, defend against unarmed attacks, defend against guns, knives, sticks and other weaponry, ladies defence, anti- hijacking, bully proofing your child, and a whole lot more!

Elite Defence Academy, in conjunction with a respected Occupational Therapist, developed a non-harmful restraint program which is now standard and used by healthcare professionals, paramedics and those involved in mental health care and rehabilitation to restrain violent patients, without causing harm.

When it comes to self-defence, prevention is definitely better than cure, which is why we place a strong emphasis on incorporating awareness training in all our self-defence courses, which includes anti-hijacking courses, self-defence for women, knife courses, groundwork courses and bullyproofing for kids.
