The first thing a Krav Maga student would most likely do when attacked is kick you hard in the groin.There is no use being polite to your attacker," says instructor Shael Sharma, who has been practicing Krav Maga for a decade and has trained Rani Mukherjee in the same for her role in a recent film.
While Krav Maga itself borrows from different martial arts, one need not have any previous knowledge of any other martial art form to train in Krav Maga. Sharma's students range from teenage girls to middle-aged men who have turned to this system for the combined benefit of self-defence and fitness. Muscle memory is important for quicker reflexes and the numerous reps that one goes through during a regular Krav Maga class is bound to shape you up as well. "In order to be able to move and effectively defend yourself, you need to be fit. Krav Maga's goal is you have got to get out of harm's way, fitness is a by-product," says Sharma. "Krav Maga often involves working with partners, sometimes even multiple partners, so it definitely helps add resistance and builds up stamina," adds Kumar. Small surprise there that many Hollywood A-listers such as Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Lopez and Madonna are all Krav Maga followers.
"Krav Maga is a fail-proof science, combining the best of techniques. It will build on what you already know, like your reflexes and movements that come naturally to you, to help you escape a dangerous situation," says Sharma.
