Rogue Valley Krav Maga is a modern self-defense system designed to address and defend against present day street assaults and confrontations. It also aims to answer the need for a practical and simple way of self-defense, particularly for security and law enforcement officers, as well as for civilians who want to learn practical self-defense skills against any type of assaults.
It is a simple, realistic, easy to learn, and an extremely efficient self-defense system. The system is based upon realistic responses to assaults and seeks to help the practitioner to properly react and respond to threats and learn how to disengage from the situation, leave the scene as fast as possible, or place him/herself to be in a position of advantage against the attacker.
The core foundation of Rogue Valley Krav Maga is based upon the military and Krav experience of its founders. The RVKM curriculum was developed, collaboratively, by a group of instructors from different Krav organizations and world-wide recognized self-defense systems. The emphasis of Rogue Valley Krav Maga was to make this system simple, easy to learn, realistic in response, and practical for everyone. What we do is bring team work and a sense of family to those that practice this self-defense system with us.

The Krav Maga symbol consists of the Hebrew letters K and M surrounded by an open circle because the system is open to improvement by adding techniques, exercises, and training methods.
"Good things can continue to flow into the system and flawed exercises can flow out." -- Imi Lichtenfeld, the Grand Master of Krav Maga
History of Krav Maga
Krav Maga was developed by Czechoslovakian-born Imi Lichtenfeld, a champion heavyweight boxer, an expert in Ju-Jitsu and Judo as well as a dancer and trapeze acrobat. Imi's family was forced to emigrate, eventually landing in what was then Palestine and is now known as Israel.
Soon after the Israeli state was established in 1948, Imi was asked to develop a system of fighting and self-defense for the Israeli Defense Force (IDF). Imi carefully refined Krav Maga during his career as chief instructor of hand to hand combat for the IDF. Beginning with special forces units like the Haganah, Palmack, and Palyam, Krav Maga became the official combatives training for all military personnel, Israeli police and security forces. Faced with the task of preparing both fit and out-of-shape soldiers, Imi developed a comprehensive system that relied on simple, instinctive moves rather than rigid techniques requiring years of training.
