Updated on March 3, 2012

Krav maga is eclectic self-defense system developed in Israel. The name means “hand to hand combat”. And it is know that it is very effective in real life situations.. A key principle of Krav Maga is finishing a fight as quickly as possible and therefore all attacks are aimed towards the most vulnerable parts of the body’. It is also a good way to shape your body because the work out is very dynamic.
Krav maga is very popular in Hollywood especially among the ladies. Some of them want to know how to defend them selves, others use it instead of the usual fitness workout.
You can often see this martial art on the big screen. For instance Jennifer Lopez trained in Krav Maga in order to do her scenes in the film "Enough". Angelina Jolie learned her techniques for the film "Tomb Raider". Actress Hillary Swank who had a martial arts role in the film "The Next Karate Kid",and played a boxer in "Million Dollar Baby" trains in Krav Maga because, she says, it is a great way to stay fit and she loves it.
