About the designer
Design by Arie Katz, Bezalel Academy of Art, Jerusalem.
Arie is a paratrooper in the Israeli Army and served in the Second Lebanon War. He continues to serve in the reserves.
He was named for his great grandfather on his mother’s side, Aryeh Leib of Poland, who perished in the Holocaust. Arie’s grandmother was the only survivor of this family. The spark lives on. Arie is married to Liza from Germany.
Arie’s uncle is the founder of IKI Krav Maga. His grandfather was the late great Rabbi Paul M. Katz, son of Moe Katz of Brooklyn, New York, grandson of Max Katz of Poland and Brooklyn.
The logo combines the Star of David with the letters IKI (Israeli Krav International). Underneath the logo is the verse from Psalms “Blessed be God my rock who teaches my hands to do battle, my fingers for war.”
