Krav Maga Pros South Africa

Krav Maga by Ryan Davies

Krav Maga, an Israeli martial art defence system developed in the 1940s during World War II, is fast gaining popularity in South Africa. Rosebank's Primal Gym owner and trainer, Ryan Davies, says after being a victim of violent crime in 2008, he went to Israel to learn Krav Maga with the aim of bringing the self-defence system to South Africa. Davies says a lot of people are using Krav Maga as an alternative to usual gym routines, as it also offers something practical.

Armed Combat & Tactics - Counter off a block

Brage Page with a beautiful perfectly timed counter to the face off a solid block. Blocking is relevant in knife combat as it is relevant in all combat. You can block a knife and end the fight. The factors that come it to play is timing and range. A successful block works when your opponent cuts or stabs with a strong forward moving pressure covering range. He essentially step into a trap.
