Books by Moshe Katz
Footsteps from Judea
Footsteps from Judea are a five volume collection of blogs by Moshe Katz CEO and Founder of IKI Israeli Krav International. They can be purchased on Amazon, these books are a great insight into the connection between Krav Maga, Jewish History and Life Lessons and experiences.
“My steps begin in Judea, my home, my ancestral home. My Krav Maga travels take me around the world but I always return home to Judea, to Israel. This book records my thoughts and observations as I travel both physically and spiritually. The lessons are universal and as such nearly each entry is someone’s favorite as he feels it was written specifically for him and for his situation. My hope is that my words will help others along their own personal journeys through time and space.”

Israel a Nation of Warriors
With the establishment of the modern State of Israel in 1948, the world saw a new Jew arise from the ashes of the Holocaust and from millennia of persecution in Arab and Christian lands. From the four corners of the earth, the Jewish people, the nation of Israel, returned home. The “dry bones” came to life creating a democratic state and a powerful military. But, this was not a new Jew at all-it was just the old Jew getting up from the ruins of his destroyed life in the exile, dusting himself off, and returning home.
Much has been written about Jewish history, but rarely has the “fighting history” of the Jewish people been told. Known as the “people of the Book,” few know the age-old fighting spirit of this nation. From the first Hebrew warrior to the Israel Defense Forces of today, Moshe Katz traces the fighting heritage and history of the Hebrew warrior. He examines the modern Israeli close quarter combat system, Krav Maga, analyzes its components and attributes, and the reasons it is sought after by security forces worldwide.
“Israel, A Nation of Warriors” takes a look at the Israeli society that produced a military force, a security system, and everyday civilian/warrior heroes that have amazed the world.
