Krav Maga is the most effective self defence system offered today. Krav Maga is easily learned and implemented quickly and is accessible to anyone interested in learning self defence techniques in order to protect themselves and their surroundings.
Krav Maga was founded and developed originally by Imi (Lichtenfeld) Sde –Or. Imi created Krav Maga for military purposes, to improve the combat abilities of Israeli IDF soldiers in the early 50’s. Over the years the Krav Maga system was further developed to provide self defence solutions for the civilian sector as well.
Avi Moyal, IKMF chairman and head instructor, as well as Imi’s direct student, continues to develop Krav Maga along with other high ranking Krav Maga GIT instructors.
Nowadays, Krav Maga provides self defence solutions to a broad variety of sectors, among which are:
Civilian Sector – offering and teaching self defence qualifications to adults, women, children; Each carefully adapted to match the variable needs of every sub sector
Military Sector – offering and teaching self defence qualifications to soldiers aimed to widen their combat abilities as individual soldiers and as a part of a unit.
Law Enforcement – offering and teaching self defence qualifications to police officers and governmental units.
VIP Sector – offering and teaching all professional levels of Third Side protection defences.
IKMF, which stands for International Krav Maga Federation, is the most experienced and oldest Kravmaga organization. Headed by Avi Moyal the organization remains forever loyal to the famous phrasing by Imi:
“So that one may walk in peace”
It is IKMF’s ongoing mission to reach out to as many individuals in as many possible countries and provide them with self defence tools that will allow them to defend themselves effectively and eliminate danger so that everyone may walk in peace.
