Metropolis Fitness Special 2015

Imi Krav Maga

Imi Krav Maga

Make protection for yourself and your family a priority in 2015. Learn hand-to-hand combat and effective self defense from professional instructor Boaz Hagay. Boaz is chief instructor of the Bukan Krav Maga School in Japan. Certified by Israel’s Wingate Institute for Physical Education, he learned from Krav Maga’s founder, Imi Lichtenfeld, and Grand Master Yaron Lichtenstein. Learn to defend yourself against strikes, grabs and chokes. Study techniques used by elite security guards and special forces, including how to defend against weapon threats, such as sticks, knives and guns. Boost your confidence and be prepared for anything. In the words of UFC fighter Yamamoto ‘KID’ Norifumi: “I teach professional fighters and, in my opinion, the authentic Krav Maga that Boaz teaches is the most efficient way of self defense. The techniques are simple but efficient, and can be mastered in a relatively short period of time.”

We have made new long sleeve t-shirts with bigger sleeve print, different color (red) and new sleeve logo.

Nothing flashy … no skulls, guns or macho logos. Just a simple design that reflects our philosophy … keep it simple.

Imi used to say “the simple way, the shortest way. Minimum defense against maximum attack.”

We tried to do the same in the design.

Isami published a 4 page special on Imi Krav Maga, the contact combat and self-defense system developed by Imi Lichtenfeld. They did an extensive interview with veteran instructor Boaz Hagay and took many pictures, mainly focusing on knife and gun techniques.

Boaz explained about the history of Krav Maga and displayed many techniques showing how Krav Maga can be efficient for defense against multiple opponents and against knife, stick or gun.

He tried to make the point that there are no beautiful techniques and that Krav Maga is not focused on form – “we just have to move fast, take out the enemy and be aware of more potential opponents”. “We need to block an attack with a kick to the knees or testicles, and then proceed with a fast progression of punches or strikes to the ears, eyes or throat”. Krav Maga is an efficient fighting system which Boaz explained is close to the Japanese “budo”.

We had yellow and orange belt test today in Roppongi Dojo.

For orange belt we did many techniques like release from front bear hug and rear bear hug, both with arms free and arms locked, release from bear hug in lifting, police man hold, front roll, back roll, break fall, judo throws etc

Boaz was very demanding as always, requiring us to do it right, to do it controlled.

We are making progress but have still much to learn. We shall especially focus on keeping our center, maintaining balance, breathing at all times, knowing distance and keeping posture (head back) at all times. Techniques will work if the attitude is right.

The white belts will move up to yellow, while the yellow belts will proceed to orange.

Recently Boaz had a Krav Maga training session with Japanese MMA legend Norifumi “KID” Yamamoto

The KID is super fast, incredibly agile and a natural born fighter

Boaz went through the basic KM punching, kicking and defense techniques which the KID picked up fairly quickly
