Krav Maga & Combatives is a club of the Ukrainian Combatives Federation, which is engaged in the development and popularization of hand-to-hand combat, self-defense, survival techniques in extreme situations, as well as in modern society.

Combatives is a term for military-hand-to-hand combat techniques that formed around the beginning of World War II. Combatives of that time were built around techniques from judo, ju-jitsu, some Chinese systems, as well as principles taken from the criminal environment with an emphasis on simplicity and efficiency. Nowadays combatives is a set of techniques and methods of hand-to-hand combat, that are based on time-tested principles of the war years. Combatives takes consideration in the modern trends of martial arts and the realities of modern human.

Krav Maga is a combatives system created in Israel. Literal translation means contact (maga) fight (krav). Like many other combatives systems, krav maga is based on several principles: simplicity, the transition from defensive to offensive technique, usage of improvised tools, attack of vulnerable points. This system turned out to be so adaptive that it quickly went beyond the limits of army training.
