FEKM Krav Maga USA - New Jersey
WHERE IS IT FROM AND WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Krav Maga was developed in the 1930s by Imi Lichtenfeld, who in 1948 became Chief Instructor of Physical Fitness and Krav Maga for the Israeli Defence Force (IDF). The FEKM (European Federation of Krav Maga) was created in 1997 by Richard Douieb, to whom Imi Lichtenfeld gave the responsibility for Krav Maga in Europe, and now includes more than 20.000 members across 9 countries. It is the largest and most well respected Krav Maga organisation in Europe.
Morris Plains Krav Maga is an expanding club operating out of Morris Plains Ideal Strenght and Fitness, and is the first club supported by the FEKM, which gives us direct access to the key instruction and principles of Krav Maga.
We have been training and developing work in Europe (Portugal, Norway and United Kingdom) for over 12 years with clubs that excel on the diversity and development of their students.
Recently we had the opportunity to start this journey in the US and decided to start in the New Jersey state.
Our approach is friendly and we pride ourselves on the thoroughness of our instruction and in our care for our students. Our primary focus is on teaching the safe, effective and lawful application of what is, after all, a potentially lethal set of techniques and principles. Self-defense is the essential framework of Krav Maga and is made up of a range of techniques and responses to a wide variety of attacks (armed or unarmed) and from various positions (upright, seated, lying down). All our sessions are safe and controlled and as a result of your self-defense training, you can expect to get fitter, stronger and more flexible.
So, now you have seen the video and read about us, get yourself signed up for a session and join our members from many other countries in Krav Maga from the EFKM and find out what “I Train to Save My Life” (TM) is about.
