This review is from: Krav Maga - Use of the Human Body as a Weapon Philosophy and Application of Hand to Hand Fighting Training System (Paperback)What is Krav Maga? It is the tactical hand-to-hand combat developed by Imi Lichtenfeld for the Israeli Defense Forces.
After the death of Krav Maga's originator Imi Lichtenfeld, Krav Maga had been watered-down or downright bastardized by countless instructors & masters, whose aim is to use the Krav Maga name to make money.
The truth is Imi's successor Eli Evikzar passed the Krav Maga legacy directly to one Boaz Aviram. This means Boaz Aviram holds the direct lineage of pure Krav Maga.
Boaz Aviram is currently retired in New York but is still actively promoting pure Krav Maga.
The book is a culmination of his life's work. It is also an insight to the philosophy & history not only of Krav Maga but also of the art of self defense in general.
Through the book, Boaz Aviram guides you through ALL the Krav Maga techniques using frames from a high speed camera.
The techniques are delivered as he would LIVE - I know, because I went through the course with him in person.
The book preserves all that is authentic Krav Maga. Owning the book is akin to owning an essential part of Krav Maga history.
It's a great teaching tool & reference for all levels of Krav Maga practitioners.
Every practitioner should own a copy because if one learns the wrong technique in the beginning, it's very hard to unlearn.
And with this book, you'll be able to grasp the important fundamentals of Krav Maga as well as help you master each technique. It's not only the how but more importantly the why, so get your copy now.
