Mossad Fighting Style - Krav Maga
Aug 31 2008, 11:16 AM EDT | Post edited: Aug 31 2008, 11:16 AM EDT
Krav Maga - The generic name in Hebrew means "close combat.". Fighting style used by Mossad Agents. Krav Maga generally assumes that the individual attacking will give no quarter; therefore, as a response the attacks and defenses are intended only for use in potentially lethal threat situations with the aim to neutralize and escape as rapidly and safely as possible

The guiding principles for those performing Krav Maga techniques are:

* Do not get hurt
* Quickly neutralise the attacker
* Quickly transition from defensive to offensive techniques
* Exploit the natural reflexes of the body
* Exploit all vulnerable points on the body
* Use any available objects as aids --- (explains the paperclip)

I just wanna share it.. and thus I am very very grateful that Officer Ziva David is fiction.

Thank you, Kairen. This is quite informative. I wonder though, if this isn't "Part 1", and "Part 2" offers instructions for how to kill. At least with Ziva, she also knows how to kill her opponent, quite rapidly and efficiently, perhaps because she is also a trained assassin. Is it that real Mossad agents never kill?

Wasn't Krav Maga used by assassins in World War II? I have seen it before, and it looks very fun... If you call swiping (fake) guns out of the opponent's hands fun.... 0  out of 4 found this valuable. Do you?

Yes they do and they are/used to be called kidoniem.

And I agree with Kairen 11 that Ziva David is fiction. B"H

All espionage agents will kill if necessary, but most take the informal creed from Shaolin. Only kill as a last resort. To easy to blow your own cover if you kill unnecessarily.
