Welcome to Krav Maga Toronto Fight & Fitness Academy.
We are the home of the first and only officially licensed and certified centre for Krav Maga training in Toronto and the GTA. For well over a decade, Krav Maga Toronto has been the premier self-defence centre in city. There are three things to describe what we do; Self-defence, Fighting and Fitness!
Krav Maga is the official self-defence system of the Israeli Defence Forces, and has been taught to hundreds of law enforcement agencies and thousands of civilians in North America and around the world.
Krav Maga is a simple, effective self-defence system that emphasizes instinctive movements, practical techniques, and realistic training scenarios. The systems methodology is explosive and very aggressive. We cover everything from the very basic, intuitive defences to worst-case scenarios, under both physically and mentally strenuous situations.
The system is designed for men, women, and children of all ages. People of all shapes, sizes and experience levels. The first rule of Krav Maga is that there are no rules. Since Krav Maga is a defensive system developed for use on the street or in combat and not in competition. Krav Maga rejects the idea of a “fair fight”. Instead, Krav Maga teaches that any moves that increase your chances of defending yourself should be used.
The main focus of Krav Maga revolves around techniques that are easy, effective and efficient. This realism-based system is designed to teach practical self-defence in the shortest possible span of time. Learn to defend against common strikes, chokes, grabs and bear hugs, as well as weapons such as guns, knives, sticks and bats, while also learning to adjust to confrontational stresses including shock and surprise attacks from violent encounters and situations in as many diverse scenarios as possible.
Krav Maga is a system, not a martial art nor a sport, that deals with the most practical, aggressive and decisive approach to realistic self-defence training. It was developed in the streets, adapted for Law Enforcement and Imi’s mission was to save lives around the world “So one may walk in peace.”
