Krav Maga (pronounced 'Krahv MaGAH'') means 'Contact Combat' in Hebrew. It is the official self-defense and fighting system used by the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF), Israeli Police and Security Services, and is the preferred training system for more than 350 U.S. law-enforcement agencies. This unique training method has been recognized as the most efficient self-defense system for real-life situations, emphasizing practical defenses against real violent attacks.


Krav Maga San Francisco was established in 1999, originally running classes in a small 750 square foot facility in the Marina district of San Francisco.

In 2003 KMSF relocated to a 6,000 square foot training facility (its present location on Bush Street). With continued success, in 2008, KMSF took over the lower level 6,000sq.ft. On Bush street and nearly doubled the size of its 3 training rooms, added a weight room and a CrossFit room!

Today, Krav Maga San Francisco holds its over 60 classes per week in a 2-floor 12,000 square foot state-of-the-art training facility and is the preferred training center for over 600 members!
