Krav Academy wants to teach you Krav Maga, Chicago.

So what is Krav Maga?

Krav Maga (“contact combat” in Hebrew) is a hand-to-hand combat system developed in Israel.   It involves eclectic striking, wrestling and grappling.  Krav Maga is mostly widely known for its extreme efficiency and brutal counter-attacks.  It is taught to regular, and special forces military in Israel and around the world. 


At Krav Academy we embrace the Krav Maga philosophy emphasizing threat neutralization, simultaneous defensive and offensive maneuvers, and aggression. Krav Maga is used by IDF Special Forces units and several closely related variations have been developed and adopted by law enforcement and intelligence organizations. We combine the newest techniques of Krav Maga and an international mix of the world’s most effective martial arts in a professional, safe and respectful environment.


Every class is a fun, supportive and positive experience. You’ll learn to train your body using the methods fighters use; high intensity for maximum results in minimum time!

We’ve learned from years of experience, that trained individuals will instinctively use what works the best for them in a self defense situation. We are committed to constant and never ending improvements and to help guide our students in their personal quest to be their best.

Come by and join us and that will demonstrate Krav Maga techniques, and let you learn more about Krav Maga.
