HaganaH is a Hebrew word meaning “defense”. The HaganaH self-defense system is a complete Israeli Combative methodology based on both Israeli martial arts and Israeli military tactics used by Israeli Special Forces operatives in extremely hostile situations. The system (and its components) was born out of a need to enable a state (or person) at a disadvantage – such as size or degree of armament – to defeat an adversary with an advantage.
The HaganaH system is a blend of the four Israeli martial arts ; Krav Maga – which is the official self-defense system in Israel; Hisardut a full contact fighting system; KAPAP and L.O.T.A.R. which are both government based military combat systems in where strategies and tactics are developed. HaganaH is the true evolution of Israeli Martial Arts. All techniques in the HaganaH system lead practitioners to one of three points of reference (destination points) with three objective options- restraint, incapacitation, or termination. By limiting the variety of combat strategies, learning time is accelerated and depth of understanding and skill levels are increased. Our practitioners become adept at quickly reacting to attacks and if necessary improvising to achieve these few points of reference. Once achieved, our practitioners feel very confident and comfortable that, even though the engagement may not be over, it is theirs to win.
