Israeli martial arts - Krav Maga

Krav Maga is fairly a new martial arts style that was developed in Israel.

The term of Krav Maga stems from the Hebrew meaning of "close combat". This style is to train people to be able to fight in a possibly close or no quarters situation. It focuses on the fundamentals of defending yourself.

1. You're not going to care how much damage you're going to cause.
2. Cause as much damage as possible and run.
3. Do not try and prolong a fight. Do what needs to be done and escape.

The use of dirty tactics are highly encouraged in Krav Maga. In a real fight, those who fight "fair" do not get to stand afterwards. Fighting fair and defending yourself are two different things.

Whats interesting is how this style of fighting has emerged in TV and the cinema. . Actress Shannon Elizabeth practices Krav Maga regularly. Jennifer Lopez's character in the movie "Enough" trains in Krav Maga to take on her abusive husband.

Here is a section of the Krav Maga training from the movie "Enough".

On Youtube are numerous videos proporting to teach, it however many of the comments in them seem to dispute the authenticity of the videos. Maybe thats it beauty, there are no rules.
