Krav Maga Myths and Misconceptions – “It Should Be Taught As It Was By Its Creators”

At its core, Krav Maga is, and should be, principle-based rather than technique-based. These principles were developed based on logic, biomechanics, and the philosophies of Imi and other Krav Maga pioneers. Since their original inception, however, if a technique or principle doesn’t work in most scenarios, the norms of what is acceptable in society have changed, or we discover a more effective idea, we rethink, re-assess, and make changes.
