How to Learn Krav Maga Street Self Defense in the Comfort of Your Home


Krav Maga is an Israeli system of self defense. It is a no nonsense approach to protecting yourself and your loved ones on the street. You may have seen a form of Krav Maga in an action movie and not even realized it.

Krav Maga will help you develop a reflex for personal protection. That means when you are face-to-face with a threatening situation, you react accordingly.

It is a good idea to train with an experienced instructor as he or she can correct your form. But if you have a busy schedule it can be difficult to attend a class week after week. You can search the web where there are hundreds, if not thousands of self defense videos. There are several good ones, but many are advanced and not practical for a beginner. Another alternative is to purchase a Krav Maga online lesson package that is organized and thorough and features basic to advanced lessons.

The Krav Maga Online Course” offers such a course. The lessons are taught by Guy Dar, founder of Full Contact Krav Maga. Guy has over 30 years of experience teaching street self-defense to both military personnel and civilians. I purchased the dvd and here’s what I saw:

“The Krav Maga Online Course” offers a no-frills approach. There are no fancy graphics or thumping loud music. There are no history lessons about the origin of Krav Maga, as you can do a quick search on the web for that. The course is as straightforward as you can get.

The lessons are divided into categories from proper stance to strikes, blocking and defending. You can watch the video lessons from beginning to end or review the lessons that you’ve learned in a simple step-by-step format.

Though the the lessons are narrated (as opposed to Guy, himself explaining the techniques) it made little difference as it did not take away from the top quality of the course.


What really stood out was the “360 degree defense”. This is a set of techniques used to protect several areas of the body and help develop the instinct for personal protection. This alone may help you survive a violent assault.

Now there are two ways you can buy "The Krav Maga Online Course" You may buy the downloadable files alone to view on your computer, iPad or smart phones, or the downloadable files plus the dvd. I bought the dvd to have as a backup.

Free Bonus Material


Included with the video lessons are two FREE bonus guides, “Tools of Protection” which lists self defense weapons you can carry on your person such as pepper sprays, tasers and stun guns. It also lists unconventional weapons you may already own, but may not be aware of. The second free bonus guide, “Self Defense for Women” has essential, life-saving advice on how you can protect yourself from a sexual assault.

So if you have a busy schedule and have a hard time fitting in a class, “Krav Maga in No Time” video lessons may be what you’re looking for.
