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”.
