KRAV MAGA: ISRAELI COMBAT SYSTEM
At Bentonville Martial Arts, we use Krav Maga as our main self-defense program that anyone can use, regardless of size, strength, or fitness. Krav Maga emphasizes simple and practical techniques, real life scenarios, and intense training.
Krav Maga (pronounced (kräv) (mägä) is Hebrew for "contact combat." It is the official self-defense system of the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF), and is used by members of several US Law enforcement agencies including the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the US Secret Service, and the US Armed Forces, as well as many other elite combat, defense, and law enforcement units around the world.
Developed in the tough battlegrounds of the Middle-East, Krav Maga has been effectively adapted for civilian use. It is the ideal self-defense system for use on the street - a place where no rules exist. Hence there are no rules. When an individual is attacked in the street there is no way to know how many opponent's or weapons one might encounter, therefore Krav Maga training is based on a system without rules. In an assault situation an individual has the right to use whatever techniques is necessary to defend himself/herself. For this reason there are no competitive tournaments or katas in Krav Maga. The techniques practiced in the style must be in terms of actual defense situations. In fact, students of Krav Maga are taught the vulnerable points i.e. back of neck, temples, eyes, throat, knees, groin, etc. of the human body and are encouraged to use this knowledge to fend off an attack.
Students of Krav Maga learn hardcore self-defense techniques, including multiple attacker defenses and defenses against sticks, knives, and guns. Realistic scenarios are always emphasized in training, and is an important part of the curriculum.

About White Tiger Kenpo Karate
White Tiger Kenpo Karate is a self defense system focusing on the most effective and realistic martial arts skills needed in modern society. With a traditional Kosho Ryu Kenpo Jiu Jitsu background and Mitose lineage, Professor Marty Cale founded White Tiger Kenpo Karate in 1981. White Tiger Kenpo Karate strives to identify all types of dangers confronting us and to practice a full spectrum of effective techniques and concepts that are easy to learn.
Students are taught how to survive in self defense combat by using an array of multiple hand strikes, multi level kicking, wrist locks, arm bars, sweeps, throws, take downs and ground fighting strategies. Students are taught how to defend themselves against multiple attackers as well as defense against weapons such as sticks, guns and knifes.
White Tiger Kenpo Karate has roots in the traditional arts of Kenpo, Ju-Jitsu, Aikido, Hapkido/TDK, Kickboxing, and Okinawan Karate-Kobudo in which it also incorporates the traditional weapons such as the Bo, Kama, Tonfa, Sai, Nunchaku, Jo and Han Jo.
These systems are the basic components of the Kenpo Karate system originally taught by Professor Cale. However, these are not the only origins of White Tiger Kenpo Karate, the system is always evolving. Techniques from a wide range of sources are adapted all the time, and incorporated into the White Tiger Kenpo Karate style making White Tiger Kenpo Karate one of the most devastating martial arts style available.
