Learn Self Defense with Krav Maga DVD Set-Giveaway!!


Many of you probably know that I love martial arts, and although I've never taken classes at a school somewhere, I do use dvds to learn and practice with. I do this because I enjoy it, but also for self defense purposes. I have never yet had to use any of what I know, but I prefer being prepared for the possibility. That's why I was excited when Krav Shop offered to send me Ultimate Krav Maga, a 5 dvd set that teaches Krav Maga for beginners to intermediate. Krav Maga is not a competitive form of martial arts, but is focused more on self defense and actual "street fighting" techniques for real life situations. Originally developed for the Israeli Defense and Security forces, it is now popular with law enforcement, military, and civilians worldwide.

"Based on simple principles and instinctive movements, Krav Maga is a modern day reality-based system that is designed to teach practical self defense in the shortest possible time (while giving you a good cardio workout). You will learn to function during the stress and shock of a sudden, violent encounter and defend against common chokes, bearhugs, headlocks, attacks on the ground 
and weapons such as gun, knives and sticks."



The Ultimate Krav Maga DVD Set takes you step-by-step through the process of Krav Maga techniques. The first dvd starts out with teaching you the ideas of Krav Maga. You don't start out with fancy moves or kicks, but rather learn some very important lessons. Awareness of your surroundings, how to use common objects for self defense, movement, and some combatives training. I was very impressed, as many martial arts dvds toss you right in to a lesson on kicks and punches, without giving you background and guidelines such as stance, position, and such. Not to mention the whole awareness aspect; when you're looking for self defense lessons, this is the best I've seen yet! 

I'm still only on dvd 2, as I'm taking this slow so I will actually learn and remember the lessons. This dvd covers your natural response to danger, teaching defenses against common grabs and holds you may encounter in a fight or attack. It helps you turn a natural response into an instinct so you'll act fast without having to think about what to do! 
Coming up on the next 3 dvds, here's what I have to look forward to:

DVD 3: 'On The Street You Can't Tap Out' (Surviving street fights standing and on the ground) Approx: 112 minutes

DVD 4: 'Surviving Deadly Weapons' (Defenses against hand guns, long guns, knives and clubbing weapons) Approx: 76 minutes

DVD 5: 'Injury Prevention' (Dynamic and static stretching) Approx: 17 minutes


As you can see, Ultimate Krav Maga is indeed the ultimate resource for learning self defense tactics that will actually work in the case of an attack or fight. By following the main principles of Krav Maga (1) Do as much damage in as little time as possible 2) Transition from defending to attacking in as little time as possible (including simultaneously) 3) Use items around you as weapons 4) Be aware of everything) you will be prepared to defend yourself and your family if necessary.

    I would like to learn this for my own self protection and my husband, having a loved one a victim of a violent crime is one of my worst fears. I would also like to share this with our 3 gorgeous young adult daughters and also our 2 young adult sons who had been bullied horrifically growing up and wonderfully unique and eccentric but that also makes them a bigger target to cruel or violent people and I want them to be able to protect themselves.

  31. I want to learn because I have always wanted to know self-defense. At this point, if anyone ever tried to hurt me they'd win because I cannot defend myself. It doesn't matter how I look or what I'm wearing, every time I'm out alone a man whistles at me, tries to get me in their car, follows me, OR honks at me. Ever since I was just a kid, my mom used to have to defend me when I was only like 11. Sometimes it makes me feel very uneasy, scared, and unsafe so I'd like to be able to know I can protect myself.
