IKI is the best Krav Maga System in the world. Founded by Moshe Katz precisely for you!
What is Krav Maga?
Krav Maga is the unarmed portion of combat: Defense against guns, knives, and hand to hand combat. It’s a simple, user-friendly style designed to meet the needs of modern self-defense. Unlike traditional styles, it is constantly being revised and updated based on lessons learned on the battlefield, urban crime, and in combating terrorists.
Cutting Edge Krav Maga!
Our Krav Maga techniques are constantly being evaluated and upgraded. Full contact training and lessons from real-life cases form the basis of our constant reevaluation. This keeps us on the cutting edge of reality training. We are innovators, not imitators.
Fun to Learn!
Our first-time students, lacking any previous training, are often surprised at how easy it is to learn Krav Maga. IKI Krav Maga uses natural body movements to create techniques that are easy for the body to learn and retain and use in high-stress situations. We use a few techniques but apply them to many diverse situations.
Using rubber knives and guns we act our realistic scenarios in a safe and fun environment. The students have a good time, learn life-saving skills, and walk away with great confidence and empowerment.
Our Krav maga students include men and women of all ages and from all over the world, and all walks of life; college students, law enforcement, military, and Special Forces, security professional from Holland to Ukraine, the USA, and South Africa. We have students and branches all over the world.
History of Krav Maga
Krav Maga literally means “Combat – Contact, or touch” or “Close Quarter Combat”.
Krav Maga has no single “founder” and no official beginning. It is the product of the needs of the times and the efforts of many instructors over the years, each adding and modifying based on his own skills, understanding, and experience.
The roots of modern Krav Maga began with the need for self-defense in the land of Israel. One must first understand a little bit of Jewish history. The Jewish people, a great fighting nation, were defeated (like most of the world) by the Romans in three successive wars in the first and second centuries.
Authentic Krav System
When people train in martial arts such as jujitsu or Israeli Krav Maga they sometimes wonder, ‘but what about the real world’? ‘Would this training really help me on the street?’ ‘What about Krav Maga reality training.
For over two years I had the privilege of training elite security guards of Jerusalem in hand to hand Krav Maga, gun disarms, and knife defenses. It was a tough job with lousy pay. I would not trade that experience for anything.
These guys fought for a living, not in the ring but on the meanest streets of Jerusalem. Their opponents were not boxers or wrestlers but knife-wielding assassins, drunken thugs, and suicide bombers. These guys had to face the real deal and they had to have the right attitude.
We are based in Israel, our homeland, in the lovely town of Maaleh Adumim. It is our Israeli headquarters where we have been training students from all over the world since 1993. Our program is cutting-edge Krav Maga. Students, instructors, and law enforcement come from all over the world to learn Krav Maga, upgrade their skills, or see what we have recently developed. They ask questions and also contribute with their own experience. Some questions lead to an evolution of an existing technique or the development of a new one. Our Krav maga is a fluid system, always meeting the demands of this ever-changing world. Our students help people all over the world, empowering and giving them tools with which to defend themselves.
