The Eclectic Martial Art of Krav Maga

Krav Maga, another Western martial art, is an eclectic hand-to-hand combat system which involves wrestling, grappling and striking techniques. Its basic principles include counter attacking as soon as possible or attacking preemptively. Targeting attacks to the body's most vulnerable points such as the eyes, jaw, throat, groin, knee etc. Neutralising the opponent as quickly as possible by responding with an unbroken stream of counter attacks and if necessary a take down/joint break. Maintaining awareness of surroundings whilst dealing with the threat in order to look for escape routes, further attackers, objects that could be used to defend or help attack. [Wikipedia]
