Krav Ma-what?

In Uncategorized by admin


Super Kicks Karate in Ashburn is known for our excellent martial arts classes for all ages, but we also offer a variety of self defense classes and workshops for adults.  One of the newest additions to our schedule is our Krav Maga class.

To those who aren’t familiar with the term, Krav Maga sounds like an exotic new cuisine …or the name of a Klingon High Council member. But the reality is that Krav Maga is a form of martial arts that was developed in the 1950’s by the Israeli military. Translated from Hebrew, the name means “contact combat”, and it incorporates techniques used in Aikido, Wrestling, Boxing,  Judo, and streetfighting.

One of the credos you will here in Krav is the concept of: “whatever works”. Sports like Boxing and Wrestling can give someone a great foundation of training to start with, but the techniques used for these competitive sports are not always as practical to use in a real life, physically threatening situation. Krav takes the techniques used in Judo, Wrestling, Aikido, etc. and builds upon them to create a functional system of all-around self-defense.

We are proud to offer Krav Maga as one of the fitness and self defense classes that we offer to our adult students. It is a fantastic way to get fit and gain confidence while learning a new form of martial arts. If you want more information visit our website, or call us to schedule a free class.
