About Krav Maga



Krav Maga is the most effective self-defence system offered today. Krav Maga is easily learned and implemented quickly. This system is accessible to anyone interested in learning self-defence in order to protect themselves and their loved ones. Krav Maga was founded and developed originally by Imi (Lichtenfeld) Sde-Or.

Imi created Krav maga for military purposes, meant to improve combat abilities of Israeli IDF soldiers in the early 50's. Over the years, the Krav Maga system was further developed by Imi to provide self-defence solutions for civilians.

Master Avi Moyal, IKMF chairman and head instructor, as well as Imi's direct student, continues  to develop Krav Maga along with other high ranking Israeli Krav Maga GIT members (Global Instructor Team).

The International Krav Maga Federation provides self-defence solutions to a broader variety of sectors, among which are:

  • Civilian - offering and teaching self-defence to adults, women, children; Each carefully adapted to match the variable needs of every sub sector.

  • Military - offering and teaching self-defence  to soldiers aimed at widening their combat abilities as individual soldiers and as a part of a unit.

  • Law Enforcement - offering and teaching self-defence to police officers and governmental units.

  • VIP - offering and teaching all professional levels of Third Party Protection (Krav Maga oriented)

IKMF, which stands for International Krav Maga Federation, is the most veteran Krav Maga organization remains forever loyal to the famous phrasing by Imi:                                                                         

                                                             "So that one may walk in peace".

It is IKMF's ongoing task to reach out to as many individuals, in as many countries possible and provide them with self-defence tools that will allow them to defend themselves effectively and eliminate danger, so that everyone may walk in peace.
