Krav Maga is an Isreali hand to hand combat system. The American equivalent is Combatives and the Russian equivalent is Systema. These kinds of systems are completely different from other Martial Arts and combat sports because of their purpose. Military martial arts like Krav Maga are designed to get you to a base level of proficiency as quickly as possible. For this reason many Muay Thai striking techniques exist in almost all military hand to hand combat systems, but the moves are modified to make them easier to understand so that soldiers with limited time to get combat ready can get to a level where they can perform them instinctually much faster. The downside is that the same level of intricacy and mental chess doesn’t exist as in arts like Muay Thai because that’s not what it was designed for.
