What Is Krav Maga?

Let’s start off with what Krav Maga IS NOT. It is not a choreographed martial art like so many “self defense” systems. It is a combat system, developed by the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), that is designed to save lives.

Is This Civilian, Law Enforcement or Military Krav Maga?

A fight for your life is a fight for your life regardless if you are a civilian, law enforcement or military. The only thing different might be the battlefield – where the fight takes place.

Any instructor claiming to teach 3 different categories of Krav Maga and implying they have secret military Krav Maga techniques is so far out of touch with reality and is playing games with your life. Walk away.

I Train Elsewhere And I’ve Been Told I’m Already Training In Your System

The reality is you are not. The other reality is since bringing Krav Maga to Oklahoma our competitors have decided to add Krav Maga to their curriculum. They’ve heard about the effectiveness of our system and have even attended our seminars, classes, etc to steal technique. That’s business. But they’ve got it all wrong. The step by step technique is not the basis of the system and is just a small part of learning to save your life.

Someone who has stolen parts of our system doesn’t completely understand what they’ve “borrowed” and they definitely don’t understand the system in its’ entirety. Attempted imitation is the biggest compliment, but they’ve taken a perfect steak and turned it into a cheeseburger.

There is only one Oklahoma Combatives.

How Long Will It Take Me To Be An Effective Fighter?

Krav Maga is a short journey. Any real self defense system not only has to be brutally effective, but simple for everyone to learn within a reasonable amount of time. How long will it take you? That depends on you. How frequently you attend class and more importantly how much you apply yourself during those classes. We can’t do the work for you.

Why Is OC The Only Place With “REAL” Krav Maga?

Oklahoma Combatives’ program is based on REAL WORLD EXPERIENCE.  Many places claiming to teach Krav Maga are teaching choreographed techniques and unproven theories. Their lack of proper development and real world experience actually INCREASES your odds of not surviving a violent attack.

Our instructor is trained out of Israel and brings valuable real world experience to the table. Many agencies have been trained in our system including federal govt, law enforcement, counter terrorism units and more.

If you’re serious about self defense there is no better choice than Oklahoma Combatives.

Do You Offer Other Classes Like Zumba, Yoga, Children’s Karate, etc?
