Krav Maga is considered to be the deadliest form of martial arts. But in reality Krav Maga is not martial arts at all. Krav Maga is a self-defense system that was devised by Imi Lichtenfeld who was a Hungarian martial artist with a Jewish background. He formulated these techniques to defend himself and his community against fascists.
Later, these combat techniques became recognized by Israeli defense forces and Imi started to teach this to them. It was because of the extreme efficacy of its techniques that it got it fame in the civilians and common people and security forces began to learn the civilian version of Krav Maga. However, being the deadliest martial arts is not true because only the most advanced techniques are life threatening. The techniques taught as civilian self-defense are very effective yet not the deadliest.
Krav Maga is commonly perceived as the deadliest form of martial arts because it is the combination of best self-defense techniques from all of the martial arts. The techniques are taken from karate, judo, Aikido, boxing, wrestling and street fighting. Imi chose the techniques form all these martial arts on the basis of their effectiveness and infliction of pain on the attacker.
The attack is intended to hurt the vital parts of the assailant’s body to defend oneself. Krav Maga techniques are considered deadliest because its training also contain the moves to immobilize the attacker through maximum injury or even life threatening methods. Krav Maga training does not hesitate to train about gauging the eyes of the attacker or giving the powerful strike to the heart or hitting the head hard without considering the consequences on the part of the attacker. The sole aim in Krav Maga combat training is to make oneself safer even if it means brutal hits to the vital body parts of the assailant. Self-defense is the foremost priority in Krav Maga hand to hand combat and it makes Krav Maga techniques ruthless yet effective when compared to other self-defense methods.
The one thing that makes Krav Maga the deadliest form because it has no limits. Its training methods emphasize not only on increasing physical strength and vigilance of mind but also adaptability to improvise according to the real life situations. This improvisation according to the scenario makes it lethal because the end result wanted is the defense and securing the life even it requires the maximum damage to the assailant. The degree of the violence allowed in Krav Maga for self-defense purposes deem it to the deadliest self-defense system even Krav Maga first and foremost principal is to avoid the confrontation as much as possible.
