Krav Maga derived from the Hebrew word for contact combat is the hand-to-hand fighting system developed by Imre Lichtenfeld for the Israeli army and later adapted for the civilian population. Encompassing the most effective elements from various martial arts and with a strong emphasis on natural body movement Krav Maga is suitable for both genders and all levels of fitness/ability. Krav Maga training addresses the need for one to be able to defend from both a standing attack and ground attack, taking into account the use of weapons and multiple attackers, it is often described as a “real live attack situation” self defense system. UL Krav Maga club is now entering its fourth year since its founding in 2008 by Darren Simring. This year’s president elect is Srdan Kovacevic who heads up a club of some 190 strong. Are aim as a club is for each member to enjoy the experience of Krav Maga training. As they complete each training session, it is our belief that a member will learn to defend themselves and their loved ones from attack, can improve their cardio, flexibility and strength. Training takes place at 7 pm Mondays and Wednesdays in the PESS building on the UL campus and normally lasts for a two hour period. Should you require further information you can contact us at given details below: Darren Simring 0872633990 E-mail: Or catch us on facebook:
