Krav Maga: Israels primary womens self defence system

Martial arts usually have traditional and historical roots with an aspect of spirituality thrown in. There are also rules, regulations and competitions. Krav Maga is different. Firstly, it’s not classed as a martial art. It’s an Israeli self-defence technique designed for the street. There are no sporting rules and there is no letting up until you are safely away or your attacker is incapacitated.

Here are 3 tips for students beginning to train in grappling. 

In the Titans club at Krav Maga Bristol we train sparring every session. We train stand up sparring but we also train in sparring on the ground. When new students to Krav Maga Bristol first start rolling it can be an uncomfortable experience. A mix of confusion, nervousness, fatigue, trying to use your strength instead of technique you find yourself exhausted. Getting submitted by your fellow student again and again isn’t much fun and eventually you will ask,  “How can I get better at ground sparring?”

The first thing is to acknowledge that all of us go through it. Sometimes you are the hammer, sometimes you are the nail. When you first start, you’re the nail! But remember we have all been there before! Other students at Krav Maga Bristol will be there to support you.

Secondly, remember that there are no quick fixes that will work overnight. You need to perservere through the first few months of training. It will get easier, you will learn skills and you will improve but there isn’t anything you can learn in a couple of classes that will make you better than someone who has been training for longer than you. There is no cheating mat time. If you want to be better than another student, better than the next person who’s going to attack you, or even just better than you yourself. You need to put the time in against real live opponents. Mat time. Time with the gloves on. Sparring stand up or ground, there’s no cheating it.
