Krav maga for self defense

Krav Maga Self Defense

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - We are all fit to fight.

That is the motivation behind a sexual assault prevention seminar held on October 26th by Fit To Fight which offers fitness, fighting and Krav Maga training.

All of the proceeds from the event to go The Marni Fund.

The organization describes Krav Maga this way:

"It was developed by the Israeli Defense Forces(IDF) in the 1940's, at a time where everyone served in the military.  They needed a self defense system that worked well for everyone, not just the big and strong.  Over time, Krav Maga has grown in popularity in the U.S., not just for the no-frills self defense skills people learn but also because it is an intense full body workout."

We learned more about the fundraiser and the study of Krav Maga on WBTV News Saturday Morning.
