What Is It and How To Turn It Into a Self-Defense Workout

It is both a martial art and a tactical strategy and is widely regarded as one of the most effective self-defense techniques in the world.

Krav Maga is known for its straightforward approach and practical skills. Its techniques are useful in a number of real-life settings and create confidence in those who practice them because they don’t require any equipment.
