Children Krav Maga

Children are categorized into a special group with their own special needs to learn Krav Maga. Due to their lack of experience, small physique, unutilized mental abilities as well as lower awareness levels, special emphasis and techniques are incorporated to teach them about self defense.

Hence, the exercise and methods are dissected onto primary reflex elements and taught stage by stage along with “combat games” that are related to the studied technique.

In order to prevent unbefitting usage of Krav Maga techniques, such as blows that were meant strictly for danger situations, which might be practiced at home or on school grounds in a normal situation, a definite distinction between right and wrong, and ascribe each exercise to the condition under which it should be applied. Accordingly the separation between Peacetime techniques and Wartime techniques is created.

  • Peacetime techniques – These would be defense exercises (with no attack) and the soft attacks (Educational Stop and repulsion using open palm). These can be used in peaceful environments like play ground, school, neighbourhood while dealing with family, friends or neighbours. The child is taught that under no circumstances can he/she cause any injury, pain or discomfort while doing these exercises.
  • Wartime techniques – these include all harsh and violent attack that might cause a major injury or at least intends to. The situation will include a confrontation with the “war people”- so called bad people who intend to hurt the trainee, and are a clear threat.

Other than the basic advantages of Krav Maga as a self defense and combat training tool, there are several others that benefit a child.

Goal setting and follow through:

Many students had difficulty in understanding how to go from point A to point B. Krav Maga focuses on each child’s mental ability to understand and imbibe. First they learned a very simple technique, then a more advanced one. They saw how efforts yielded gradual results, rewards, and recognition. This motivated them to try harder, to attend classes more often. Krav Maga and all martial arts are based on repetition, they saw how a task which appeared impossible at first became easy later on as the body and the nervous system adapted to it. They learned that no goal is impossible and that they can become the person they admired.

BENEFITS OF KRAV MAGA TO CHILDREN

  • Self-defense for children:

We use a dynamic program that instructs students in a realistic self defense situation, these days, with violence on the rise and bullying becoming more and more common both the education system and parents face difficulties in handling violence directed at children. It’s essential that young people acquire skills, abilities, techniques and tactics to cope with any unexpected confrontation inflicted.

  • Learn life skills say “no” to any abuse.
  • Goal setting and follow through

Many students had difficulty in understanding how to go from point A to point B. They had the desire to reach point B, it was a goal but they could not figure out how to get there. This led to great frustration and anger. They were accused of being lazy, this lead to resentment and a lack of desire to even try. In martial arts they understood the process we follow. They saw that one cannot just jump from white belt to black belt. First they achieved a yellow stripe, then a belt. First they learned a very simple technique, then a more advanced one. They saw how efforts yielded gradual results, rewards, and recognition. This motivated them to try harder, to attend classes more often.

  • Confidence building

Motivating kids through exercise, personal safety and discipline is a powerful way to help them build their confidence and self-esteem.

 

  • A sense of accomplishment

 

  • Time and place for everything

You like to fight? You like to hit? That’s O.K. You need to let off steam? That’s O.K. You can hit the punching bag; you can fight another student, with his consent and with the teacher’s supervision. The student learns that without these pre-conditions he is not allowed to hit or fight.

  • Learning to focus
  • Understanding structures and rules

The dojo is a traditional place and there are many rules: how you enter and leave, how you dress, how you behave. The student quickly learns that if he is to stay – he must abide by these rules.

  • Improving fitness

Power filled drills and continuous techniques strengthen muscles and body. Stamina to never give up and continue fighting is the motto.

  • Fun

Krav maga is also fun to learn and a great way to let off steam. You come out feeling rejuvenated and happy.

  • Disaster management

Krav maga is not just about self defense, we also teach kids how to deal with disasters in schools or at house like fire, earthquakes, floods, terrorist attacks etc.

  • Basic First aid training

Knowing first aid prepares anyone for a fast and educated response in situations, whether there are emergencies or otherwise. Even children can benefit from first aid training to enable them to respond appropriately in a variety of circumstances. Providing basic first aid information to children can instill confidence that comes from preparedness.

Our basic training program design combination of physical activity and theory, wherein 90% physical active participation program and 10% theory.

It would be important to note here, that all Krav Maga (Shatrunashak, Self-defense) techniques have been thoroughly tested in real life situations, improved upon and refined accordingly and can be readily used under any stressful conditions.

Our prime motive is to make the art form easy to learn and easier to apply therefore irrespective of age, size, physical challenges or any position of disadvantage practitioners of Krav Maga can protect and persist in a life threatening situation.
