The way of Imi Lichtenfeld Sde-Or founder of Krav Maga
Imi Lichtenfeld Sde-Or "Krav Maga self-defense not for violence, Act the best you can but act correctly".
I dedicate this article to the memory of my teacher, Imi Lichtenfeld Sde-Or 05/26/1910 – 08/01/1998 founder of Krav Maga, I believe he was very happy to read this article.
The importance of the method of warfare will provide you with complete self-defense are immense in a world where terrorist crime and violence are not foreign words. Today, our world is full of attacks and crimes if we do not know how to defend ourselves, we do not do charity to anybody. Therefore, it is essential which approach and looks for a method of warfare that provides self-defense interest so that we can get an " Act the best you can but act correctly", Imi Lichtenfeld Sde-Or, "do minimum defense against maximum offense" Eli Avikzar, "Perform the technique as a reflex, in a non-thinking manner and control the other attackers” Ami Niv.
Unfortunately, there are quite a few cases we may encounter, forcing bully us; a battle we did not want to get caught at all, a terrorist who wants to harm us or carry out a terrorist act hostile or violent teenagers drunk from alcohol and seeking to cause damage to the environment. If we will not be ready and do not take measures to restore our security while someone attacks us, we can get hurt or killed.
When talking about Krav Maga the first thought that comes to mind it's how to defend yourself after that is how to attack. the method of warfare is certainly not intended to attack innocent people or to enhance the status of violence. When I talk about Krav Maga I mean fighters that started learn Krav Maga from Imi Lichtenfeld Sde-Or and developed it in their way and not forgotten the main base self-defense, and developed the Krav Maga that adjusted to these days; as they did in their time Imi Lichtenfeld Sde-Or, Eli Avikzar, and I Ami Niv, each in his career.
The essential difference between a violent attack and self-defense. when we are defending ourselves we do not want to get hurt; so we build offensive and defensive ends that we leave it non bruised and lacerated. If we will have to use a physical response back it will be done to neutralize the opponent through professional techniques built during practice and perseverance. Krav Maga Ami Niv evolved from Krav Maga the way of Imi Lichtenfeld Sde-Or and Eli Avikzar; they taught mostly self-defense and combat face-to-face in the army, and citizenship according to their beliefs; these techniques should start at a level reflective not cognitive. and need to take into account that attackers can join from the sides and cause serious sabotage. And the reference needed to be significant to this development to improve self-defense and dealing with terrorists, thugs, and street gangs.
Today there are more martial arts that goal to expand their horizons and fighting styles. And to be better athletes and warriors, thereby coming more ready for the battle or fight. And for that, they need to "perform the technique as a reflex, in a non-thinking manner and control the other attackers". Some instructors will try to take advantage of Krav Maga and make it a method of warfare and violence for their control significantly hurting the opponent. But the way the method is taught doesn't allow it. because the entire essence of the system and adherence to its fundamental understanding is based first on self-defense. Due to the important concept rooted in training, making a minimum defense against maximum offense. It is very easy to distinguish who uses combat to attack and who to defend himself. Self-confidence – the best defender in life is first of all confidence. When we act and do things that are full of confidence, it's highly likely that we will succeed or we will be better than anxious to come from. When people learn Krav Maga Ami Niv deeply and through organized coaches. They instill in their student's teacher-pupil relationship that students who persist in training and deal with physical and emotional stress, build their self-confidence is needed. Thus in situations of violent attacks in the street can be only abundant confidence that we will then meet with him will make the difference between a serious injury or disabled opponent.
Ami Niv in " Krav Maga the Ideology is to raise fighters as self-defense weapons and attack when necessary while maintaining human rights and freedom". Ami Niv "Imi Lichtenfeld Sde-Or and Eli Avikzar founders of Krav Maga", my mentors, with whom I spent many hours. Always emphasize the way to nurture the trainee is based on these principles. To encourage the child from an early age that their parents need to bring them and register with experienced instructors the education principles are first of all; so that the child will develop his personality and teach him how to dill with him to deal with violent attacks.
Krav Maga Ami Niv sees himself as a teacher and educator of his students, in cooperation and with full support from their parents while caring for the personal benefit of each student. It is the only way we can succeed and provide our students with the right skills for life.
