Our Mission
Krav Maga Malta's mission is to professionally prepare its trainees in the subjects of self-defense, self protection, fighting and combat skills, as well as skills to defend others, all through unique teaching and fast learning methods.
How does Krav Maga differentiate from other styles?
Krav Maga techniques differentiate from other martial arts methods in a few aspects: first and foremost by their practicality to implement under real circumstances. In the streets, one has to keep in mind that there are no mats to protect you from falling and you may have armed and / or multiple attackers. This means that your aggressor should be controlled within 3 seconds or less. This differs from contact sports such as boxing and kickboxing where a round may take up to 3 or 5 minutes each or certain grappling styles where the fight is taken to the ground.
