CROSS Krav Maga is a separate system based on Krav Maga
It is a self-defence survival system that is based on Krav Maga that is designed to encourage the individual to use what works for them. We are all different in our size, strength, speed, agility . Cross Krav Maga is designed to help even the odds between you and your attacker, it teaches key survival skills and how to react if attacked utilising flinch responses , it will rapidly develop an awareness of what self defence works and what doesn’t. We look on the perspective that will it work for me if i was a woman of 8 stone, this way we are not learning to fight force with force, as there are always someone stronger than you, we use mindset, redirection and attacking the attacker to deal with what threat confronts us, and to ideally escape and get home safe.
CROSS Krav Maga or Krav Maga, What’s the difference?
Many times I have been asked, what is the difference between our system and traditional Krav Maga. I was an Instructor with a large Krav Maga Organisation and found the technique driven system had flaws, yes I love some of the traditional Krav but felt that the system is getting very sports orientated and not so self-defence based. We teach a set of principles first and foremost before techniques, the reason for this is we want our coaches and students to have a flexible approach to their self protection, understand natural movement and to be able to use what works for them. one size does not fit all when it comes to self defence!
At CROSS Krav Maga Academy we do not have such a rigid syllabus as we want our students to react quickly and calmly to a rapid change of attack, with this in mind we teach these main principles, Three points of Contact, Relative Position, simultaneous attack and defence, centre line theory and Balance Displacement this way our coaches can teach their students to always expect the unexpected and can react positively to situations presented.
