The founder of Krav Maga, Imi Lichtenfeld, was born in Budapest in 1910. As a child, Imi studied wrestling, boxing, and gymnastics and would excel in these sports through his adult life. Living in Bratislava during the 1930s, Imi lead a group determined to defend against gang violence. Ensuing confrontations revealed the difference between street and competition fighting, and the need for a practical self-defence system.

Krav Maga grew out of this need.



All of our instructors are certified with the International Krav Maga Federation (IKMF), which has provided training to soldiers, law enforcement/security personnel, and everyday people – men, women and children since 1997. Programs focus on real-life scenarios rather than competitive fighting skills. We help to stay safe by learning practical ways to protect themselves.

Our instructors continuously upgrade their skills to ensure that you'll have the most effective programs and current information to defend yourself from:

  • Chokes and grabs
  • Attacks with sharp weapons (knives, bottles, etc…)
  • Assaults with blunt objects (bats, pipes, hammers, etc…)
  • Multiple attackers
  • Punches, kicks, elbows, knees…
  • Protecting others (children, partners, etc…)
  • Gun threats
  • Abduction/kidnapping attempts/home invasion.
  • And much more…….
