Krav Maga Untamed

Self Defense for Today's World.

Be prepared to do whatever it takes to survive.

Krav Maga Untamed™ strives to empower each student and client with the ability to successfully defend and protect themselves, their loved ones and fellow citizens from violence and hate crimes. We hope that our passionate mission to help others defend themselves will make the world a better and safer place each day. 

We are the leading professional Israeli trained and certified co-team in the USA. We are part of the elite few bringing the most up to date Krav Maga self defense straight from Israel to the States! We are a mobile team, currently teaching workshops and classes throughout Virginia; and providing specialized close protection and consulting for weapon free designated areas.

We have developed a very effective, easy to learn and retain, self-defense program. This program is solely designed to teach students how to stay safe when facing various dangerous situations. What renders Krav Maga methods unique are techniques that are based on natural instincts and body mechanics. This provides a very fast and easy learning curve for all students regardless of their size or strength. We blend these techniques into interactive and empowering programs that effectively train the body and mind to be more in control of one's safety. The confrontations we deal with in class mirror the real world — muggings, sexual assault, bar fights, shootings, etc.  No prior experience is required to begin learning and brute strength and size are irrelevant. It's only natural that once you've gained physical confidence in our classes, that confidence will carry over into other areas of your life. You will develop mental resolve in handling hypothetically threatening situations, strengthen your muscles with strikes and power drills, and gain a better understanding of your body and its instincts. All of this optimizes you as a whole unit and you'll notice the benefits extending far beyond class.

To put things simply: you're fighting for your life. Even though Krav Maga is known for being a self defense system, students must also learn fundamental fighting skills; such as how to properly punch, elbow, kick, etc. It is both an offensive and defensive  system. Not getting hurt is the primary goal of Krav Maga. Due to this, we place safety first in our training. Students are encouraged to display explosive aggression and are being "attacked" constantly, but the system was also designed for its practitioners to train without getting hurt. To simulate real-life threats, we often practice controlled stress drills which can entail other students and instructors pushing into you with pads, or surprise attackers trying to grab, stab or mug you at unexpected times. These drills, and many others, are designed to exhaust our bodies and disorient our senses. This allows students to practice techniques under stress. In real life, your attacker isn't going to wait for you to get into the perfect position before assaulting you, so our goal is to prepare you to fight back under unideal circumstances.

Krav Maga means "contact combat" in Hebrew. 

The system is well known for its simplicity, instinctive nature, adaptability, and proficiency. Krav Maga techniques are based and built on functional movement, natural instinct and constant adaptation; making it immensely easy for anyone of any size to learn and apply in all situations.

It is a blend of techniques from various martial arts that were designed by a fighter named Imi Lichtenfeld to defend against Nazis during the Holocaust. It is a no frills, ever evolving self-defense system where the focus is solely on one’s safety being achieved quickly and easily. It is not considered a martial art, as its goal is not to win points but to simply go home safe. What distinguishes Krav Maga from other martial arts is how realistic and practical it is as a self defense system. Krav Maga could be called the great equalizer. The system's techniques can allow a 90 lb girl to neutralize a 300+ pound man by focusing on the attacker's vulnerable points. Unlike traditional martial arts that have stayed the same for hundreds of years, Krav Maga is ever changing.  It is evolving every day much like a computer program or anti-virus software, allowing it to fit the dangers of the modern world. 

The Krav Maga Gidon System is the most efficient, effective and up to date self-defense fighting system in the world. Krav Maga Untamed uses the techniques from the Gidon System and blends them into specialized programs. 

Krav Maga is still used today by the Israeli Defense Force (IDF), as well as the U.S. Military, and other top military and police units around the world. Krav Maga has also quickly spread to private security institutions and civilians, reaching global prominence.

Imi Lichtenfeld established the non-profit Israeli Krav Maga Association (IKMA) on October 22, 1978. After Imi retired in 1964, as the military’s chief instructor of physical training and self-defense, he focused on adapting his system to provide both professional security agencies and civilians with solutions to avoid and end violent encounters.

Grandmaster Haim Gidon is the highest-ranked individual in the world, at 10th-degree black-belt, and currently heads the IKMA as Imi’s appointed successor and President of IKMA.  Grandmaster Gidon was a member of Imi’s first training class in the early 1960’s and co-founded the IKMA along with Imi and other top instructors at the time. 

In 1995, Imi nominated Haim as the top authority to grant 1st dan krav maga black-belt and up. In an IKMA ceremony, Imi awarded Haim Gidon his 8th dan and stated 9th and 10th dans “were to come”, designating Haim as the highest ranking Krav Maga instructor.

As President and Grandmaster of the IKMA, Haim has taught defensive and military tactics for over the last thirty years to Israel’s national police, security and military agencies. Many of  Haim’s students hold the highest posting in the Israeli military and security establishments.
