It’s a well-known fact that martial arts can strengthen your mind and body, but there are some specific benefits offered by Krav Maga that not many people are aware of. This unique method of training focuses on the balance between physical and mental well-being and teaches you life-saving, self-defense techniques. The intuitive and practical format of the training makes it suitable for individuals of all ages, sizes and shapes.
“I believe that Krav Maga is an excellent way to improve your health from the inside out,” says Vikram Kapoor, Head Instructor IUKMF Shatrunashak Krav Maga, Saket, New Delhi. Kapoor is known for training veteran Bollywood actress, Rani Mukherjee, for the movie Mardaani.
He explains, “Krav Maga uses short bursts of high-intensity moves to increase stamina and agility. Each training session is a tough workout that will push your body and encourage you to fight for yourself. What’s more, the complex combination of kicks, punches, and knee strikes will burn calories and help you lose weight. And if that wasn’t enough, the martial art form also helps one to increase reaction time, reduce stress levels and improved decision making.”
