5 ways Krav Maga differs from MMA (Mixed Martial Arts)

Mixed Martial Artists are among the most skilled fighters in the world. The main distinction is that these fighters are in a relatively controlled environment where they fight:
  • against one opponent
  • according to specific rules
  • with a referee monitoring these rules
  • until the referee decides one fighter is seriously hurt
  • controlled spaces (cage or ring)
Krav Maga, on the other hand, prepares you for situations where there are no rules or standard environments (no referees, multiple attackers, weapons, in any setting).  Assaults, after all, can occur in various settings, in many ways, and at times we don't expect

Stay safe,
