What is Krav Maga?

Krav Maga is the most effective self-defense system offered today. It is easily learned and implemented quickly. Importantly, our system is accessible to anyone interested in learning self-defense techniques with the aim of protecting themselves or those around them.

Krav Maga was originally founded and developed by Imi (Lichtenfeld) Sde –Or. Imi created Krav Maga for military purposes, specifically to improve the combat abilities of Israeli soldiers in the early 50's. Over the years the Krav Maga system was further developed by Imi to provide self-defense solutions for the civil sector as well. Avi Moyal, the current IKMF chairman and head instructor, and direct student of Imi Lichtenfeld, continues on to develop Krav Maga along with other high ranking Israeli Krav Maga instructors. Nowadays, Krav Maga is providing self-defense solutions to a broader variety of sectors, among which are:

    • Civilian Sector – offering and teaching self-defense qualifications to adults, women and children. Training has been carefully adapted to match the unique needs of each audience.
    • Military Sector – offering and teaching self-defense qualifications to soldiers aimed at widening their combat abilities, both as individuals and as part of a team.
    • Law Enforcement - offering and teaching self-defense qualifications to police officers and governmental units.
    • VIP sector – offering and teaching all professional levels of involved in the VIP protection and security fields.


The International Krav Maga Federation (IKMF), is the most veteran Krav Maga organization. Headed by Avi Moyal the organization remains forever loyal to the famous phrasing by Imi: "So that one may walk in peace." It is IKMF's ongoing goal to reach as many individuals in as many countries possible and provide them with self-defense tools that will allow them to protect themselves effectively and eliminate danger so that everyone may walk in peace.
