KRAV Maga is a gritty and realistic self defence system originating in the Israeli military.Recently it's seen a surge in popularity and is now being taught across the globe. Students from Weston's own Somerset Krav Maga, were put through their paces by Nick Maison, the UK director of Krav Maga and a military instructor. Students had to punch, kick, escape from chokes, deal with knife attacks, multiple opponents, and survive attacks while on the ground to success- fully gain their first award in the system.Instructor Paul Grey said: "What these students have achieved in less than six months is amazing, some of them have been training less than three months and are already a handful. Krav Maga is a great system, its so simple to learn and can be learned by just about anyone."Those interested in having a go at Krav Maga, visit www.somerset kravmaga.co.uk to find out more.
