We are confident in our IKI Krav Maga techniques which are designed and coordinated to really save lives, our techniques are easy to learn and easy to teach. Confusing and complicated techniques are dangerous and a person could get killed by using a technique that compromises one’s safety. Once you start learning with us you will very quickly see how effective our system is and how confident you will feel being able to implement them.
It is also a unique opportunity and experience to actually study with us here in Israel. You will meet and work out with our IKI students in Israel and will also tour Israel, learning about our history and Krav Maga history.
Should you decide you would like to progress and become a member of IKI and test for a teaching certificate and/or ranks, you will be able to be tested at the end of the course.

Welcome to Israel Esther & Moshe

Another plus is that the people I trained with when I got back said that under their system they wouldn’t teach certain techniques until a student had a certain amount of time in the organization while Moshe will teach you everything that you want to learn and for about any scenario that you can think of. Overall I can only recommend the trip to you. You will get to see the “real Israel” meet “real Israeli’s” and will see that whole region differently when you actually get to walk and live there for even a brief period of time. Of course, you will also get great Krav Maga training as well.” Stephen Tallon, USA Participant, June 2011
Moshe, when I chose to travel to Israel, in November 2012 for Krav Maga Training, I did a lot of research in terms of where to train, and I have to say I made the right choice to train with you [IKI] in Israel, because you “Keep It Real” and as a personal witness I can say, you make sure that each and every student learns the IKI Krav Maga concepts, and not to mention, the cost of the training cannot be beat!! Manual Garcia, California, US
Dear Moshe, So nice of you to find kind words for everyone in the group. Well, only you can judge how the atmosphere in earlier Tour and Train groups was, but from my perspective, I also experienced a good spirit and camaraderie. As a new beginner I felt unsure if I would be accepted – and then I felt so soon integrated and respected by everyone. A lot of this nice atmosphere is owed to yourself – due to your warmhearted way of teaching and treating people. A big thank you as well! I am looking forward to the next training with you, hopefully in the next Tour and Train, but at least in December in Germany. With blessings, Beate (Germany, Class June 2013)
“I attended Tour & Train in June 2011. We trained for a minimum of 7 hours a day. This type of intensive training promotes increased muscle-memory …eg techniques will start to become instinctive. No different from learning/practicing the mechanics of a golf swing. When it all comes together, you will remember it. I remember within the last couple of days we did a pistol disarm (to the back of the head) with our eyes closed to test our technique. It was the same result as eyes open. We felt the gun and reacted. I will be traveling back to see Moshe next June. It is an experience you won’t forget. If you are serious/enthusiastic about Krav or even CQC in general, you will enjoy it. Train hard, stay safe.” Alan Blackney, Perth, Australia “I’m Alberto, from Mexico City. I spent a week in Israel, training with Moshe and really wonderful group of friends from four continents last June, and I can absolutely say that my skills improved dramatically. You have to take in count that this tour and training implies a total immersion into Krav Maga: you LIVE Krav, training from 5 to 11 hours a day. That is the amazing thing about Krav Maga, you don’t need to learn elaborated katas and techniques in order to get confidence in yourself, you go there to get a concept. And once you get that concept, the rest comes naturally.” Alberto Labra, Mexico
“IKI Tour and Train is an amazing experience, but make no mistake, it is not a holiday. During the 10 days, you get more than 8 hours of intensive Krav Maga training each day, during which, you learn and practice a lot of techniques. The training is suitable for everyone, young, old, fit, unfit, experienced or inexperienced. If you are interested in Self-Defence training, then this is a great place to start or consolidate your knowledge, you learn a lot, and can go away with confidence that you can continue. Something that really differentiates this course and makes it better than the others is the chance it gives you to experience the history and culture of Israel. As well as the excellent training, Moshe and Esther take the group to a range of culturally and historically important locations in and around Jerusalem. There are also opportunities to participate and experience the Jewish culture. Apart from the Tour and Train part of the trip, you meet an interesting group of people from around the world. While each person has their own reasons for coming on the course, you are united by wanting to learn Krav Maga, and through the intensity of the training. It makes for a lot of fun, and life-long friendships. Moshe and Esther put heart and soul into the course to give you the best and broadest possible experience of Krav Maga, Israel’s history and Jewish culture. I had a great time, and you really cannot ask for more. Mike Sloane- UK” June 2016
The first thing I felt, as I had arrived for tour and train, was a very welcomed feeling, it was strongly felt and made me much more at ease. I knew, ( or at least expected ) that I would learn much more of the Krav Maga and its history. I was very much surprised!! The people are absolutely kind and wonderful. I have learned more From Moshe Katz, and Esther Lehman ( two angels by the way ) in ten Days, then what would take months to learn from books. Their hearts are as big as Israel itself. They teach real Krav Maga That works at its simplest, design for everyone. The technique doesn’t require strength or endurance to perform and is based on gross motor skills. ( big movements ) Any fine motor skills ( small movements ) go out the window under extreme stress such as a life or death situations. Moshe and Esther are both all about peace, respect, and ethics. To learn IkI Krav Maga is to learn peace and to spread that peace. To respect, and cherish all life. Moshe Katz knowledge, and family roots to the history of the Jewish people with their hardships and their triumphs, better then any book you will ever read, walk with Moshe back in time throughout Jerusalem, and the Masada, and not only will you Learn the history, but you will feel the history!! The Heart and spirit of the people. The whole experience cannot be expressed in words it needs to be witnessed. I will continue to go back for as many years as I am on this beautiful planet. Thank you, Moshe Katz and Esther Lehman for welcoming me as a part of the IKI family. Gary Bishop, Newfoundland, Canada

Unique Krav Approach, Blending with Counter Terrorism TrainingDear Esther and Moshe, I would like to take this opportunity to extend my big thanks for another amazing IKI Tour & Train experience, so carefully prepared and organized project so that each of us participants coming from around the world would feel good during every moment spent in Israel and with its people. And brief feedback on training: IKI training again proved to be unique in its approach – techniques effective, easy to learn, and always ‘fine-tuned’, improved. The best part is when Moshe would explain a logic behind some technique by saying ‘Why?’ (why it works in a way it works?) and then 30+ years of substantial experience in martial arts speak out explaining in very clear language to every person around why is it so and what is advantage against complex moves and numerous techniques in other martial arts/stiles in Krav Maga. I wonder who, of all others and known to be ‘the best’ in the world can do it the way Moshe does. Most importantly, which made profound impression on me is notion how honorable foundations were laid in creation of IKI and objectives set for the future by making IKI Krav Maga accessible to as many people as possible, to enable people to defend themselves regardless of their age or physical abilities and also among them recruit those that will further promote IKI style and values by becoming committed instructors. Special benefit for each IKI student is offered in form of additional training in counter-terrorism and VIP protection where world-class operatives trained us in combat/weapons/security protocols that only Israeli specialists developed and today deliver to their counterparts from around the world. This merge was surely a special bonus and I myself as a security professional found it extremely useful and most of all I feel ready to respond should critical situation would dictate so. I am immensely grateful for every minute spent with such outstanding, and I repeat again, world-class specialists. I wish many more successful Tour & Train events in future, happy students from around the world to enjoy unique Krav Maga training with IKI and I give my personal assurance that I will come back even if it means being under fire – at least I will stand together with wonderful people of Israel and share fate with them. I did four Tour and Trains in a row as I kept coming during the last three years. Training was: 1) always intensive, covering nearly every possible critical situation that one can come across, 2) up-to-date, all based on experiences of real-life combat situations that Israel is facing daily which all brought genuine quality in each training and guaranteed that every training participant gets the best of Krav Maga today. In general, training under the guidance of Mr. Moshe Katz and IKI Association was by far the best choice I could make and spectrum of skills that I learned made me so much better prepared for work in a high-risk environment. Srdan Miconovic (Croatia) With fondest regards, till next Tour & Train, Srdjan
Krav Maga Tour & Train has been a tremendous experience. Moshe and Esther have given us a very full two weeks. Everyone has learned and grown a great deal with every opportunity that we have been given. We have been exposed to the depths of history, war, and religion here in Israel. I have gained more in this two week period than I could have in an entire semester of schooling on these subjects. Moshe is knowledgeable and passionate about both the places we have toured as well as the Krav Maga training that he provides. This has made every day fun and enlightening. In the past I found what I heard on the news about this region of the world to be confusing and extremely difficult to understand; however, with this outstanding experience, I am going home empowered. I now have a much better understanding of what is going on here politically and religiously. I have an increased understanding and deep respect for the history that has taken place here. Our group is of different backgrounds, ages, gender, and religions, but with Moshe’s genuine example, everyone has worked well together. Life-long friendships have been made. IKI Tour & Train has been a fantastic experience. We hope to return in the future.
In November 2013 we took part in Moshe Katz’s „Tour and Train”. Since we are 50 respectively 59 years, we were reluctant to book the tour at all, since we had already mixed experiences of Krav Maga in Germany. But what we got was exactly how Moshe predicted in his emails before: “Everyone trains on his own pace and intensity”. We got away with NO injuries, even NO sore muscles, and almost no bruises but with substantial and complex insights into various self-defense techniques, comprising hand to hand, ground fight, REAL knife defense (evasion) and none the less a big portion of gun-disarming. – So far pragmatic aspects! Even more impressive and moving was the insight Moshe granted into the mentality and mindset behind Krav Maga and his very personal feelings and emotions. Very probably it takes to be mature up to a certain degree to fully understand, what Moshe tried to come across with, but in our case, he entirely succeeded in, sometimes without any word vocalized! A unique experience, we never forget. A relationship between two nations or two peoples such burdened as the one between Israel and Germany is unique in history. Provided this, we were always very sensitive about reactions, when Moshe introduced our group to Israelis, and where members are coming from. In NO case we sensed negative emotions when Germany was mentioned. It is quite the opposite: We never forget this moment, when a six-day-war veteran chooses Norbert as the only male German to pose arm in arm for a group photo at ammunition hill. And he even showed his pride of his German roots. Yad Vashem: Given the historical fact, in each and every language it is impossible to find the appropriate words, but we try to: In Germany even after about 80 years, people are very reluctant to talk about the Holocaust. The word “embarrassed” does by far not provide the appropriate reach, what we feel. Germans avoid to mentioning, that since thousands of years Jews had been deprived of privileges, hunted, expelled, humiliated, even killed and that while 2nd world war many Germans granted shelter and helped Jews to escape Nazi prosecution. If this was mentioned by Germans it always sounds like a cheap excuse. But Israelis do! And they emphasize, that everything is confirmed and proved. – What a great gesture! Thank you, Moshe, for a unique journey through our history. Ute and Norbert Erfahrungsbericht zu „Tour and Train 2013“ Krav Maga in Israel,
