If you practice a martial art, Krav Maga is likely a fighting system you’ve heard of. Thanks to its rising popularity and increasing roster of celebrity practitioners, many people outside of the world of martial arts are starting to take interest in Krav Maga –– and even recognize it by name, if not by its principles. While Krav Maga is often lumped in with other martial arts, make no mistake: Krav Maga is neither a combat sport nor a martial art. It is a self-defense system built for survival.
“Art” Vs. “System”
There is no single definition of the term ‘martial art’ and this often leads to confusion. A martial art, for our purposes, is a codified system of physical movements meant for a competitive, combat, or combat-like activity. Often, especially in Eastern martial arts, there is a philosophical aspect to the various styles related to codes of honor or connections to the natural universe.
