Regardless of age, gender or physical disability, you can learn how to defend yourself from any attack in the future with Krav Maga classes now being offered in Thornhill.
What is Krav Maga
Krav Maga is a mixed martial art that is a combination of Aikido, Judo, boxing and wrestling. Created by Imi Lichtenfeld prior to WWII in Czechoslovakia, he soon found himself in charge of training what would become the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) in the future. His methods are still taught as the official hand-to-hand combat system of the IDF. Additionally, its influence can be seen in police and military combat training around the world.
