CROSS Krav Maga is a separate system based on Krav Maga
It is a self-defence survival system 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 and 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 train from the perspective that we want techniques to work whether we are an 8 stone woman or a 15 stone man. We use mindset, redirection and attacking the attacker to deal with whatever threat confronts us, and to ideally escape and get home safe..
HONEST SELF DEFENCE
You don’t need training to successfully defend yourself in some circumstances. You do need training however if you want to begin to learn what it is exactly that you don’t know. You do need training to force your mind into making vital and potentially life altering decisions, under stress, in very short periods of time without relying on blind luck to get you through. You do need training to recognise some of the very subtle indicators that a predator is running you through their victim selection process. And you certainly need training to come any sort of close to understanding what a violent encounter is actually like if you’ve never found yourself in one.
So while I’ll stand behind the statement that in some instances you don’t need training to successfully defend yourself I can’t think of a single event where it would hurt to know just a little bit more… look at it as an insurance policy that actually pays out if you ever needed it!
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.
