“Any man who is a man may not, in honor, submit to threats or violence. But many men who are not cowards are simply unprepared for the fact of human savagery. They have not thought about it (incredible as this may appear to anyone who reads the paper or listens to the news) and they just don’t know what to do. When they look right into the face of depravity or violence, they are astonished and confounded. This can be corrected.”

-Jeff Cooper, Principles of Personal Defense

Why IKMF Krav Maga


Did you know that not all Krav Maga is the same? Most Krav Maga studios belong to an association that teaches their own perspective of it.


So why do we specifically teach IKMF Krav Maga? Krav Maga as a combatives system was developed in the 1930s by Imi Lichtenfeld who had an extensive knowledge of many different martial arts. Imi eventually founded the International Krav Maga Federation (IKMF). Created to serve as the official self-defence system for the Israeli army, it has been adopted by most of the special forces around the world. The IKMF is an internationally-renowned organization and works with some of the highest level military, operators, special forces, law enforcement and civilians around the world. IKMF Instructors for this program work closely with the Global Instruction Team (GIT) and Israel HQ to ensure that technique is current, correct and effective. They have been screened, taught, thoroughly tested, and they are continually evaluated to ensure you have a program that is consistent, cohesive and modern.
