Krav Maga’s origins
Imrich Lichtenfeld (also known as Imi Sde-Or) was born in 1910 in Budapest, Hungary and grew up in Bratislava (Slovakia).
Lichtenfeld became active in a wide range of sports, including gymnastics, wrestling, and boxing.
In 1928, Lichtenfeld won the Slovakian Youth Wrestling Championship, and in 1929 the adult championship (light and middle weight divisions). That same year, he also won the national boxing championship and an international gymnastics championship.
During the ensuing decade, Imi’s athletic activities focused mainly on wrestling, both as a contestant and a trainer.
