Women's Krav Maga techniques were developed by the IKMF due to growing demand across the various civilian sectors.

Women's Self-Defence (WSD) qualifications enable women of all ages to learn, in a relative short period of time, central self-defense techniques specifically designed to provide them with defensive tools while attacked.

The IKMF offers several WSD qualifications:

  • A 3 to 4 hours seminar
  • Three day workshop
  • A five day women's Self-Defence Instructor Course aimed for certified IKMF civil instructors

WSD methods deal with situations from a woman's daily routine, point out scenarios where threat may appear and teaches, step by step, how to maintain calmness, defend yourself, counter-attack, and eliminate danger. The WSD Krav Maga sector logically concentrates on sexual assault scenarios as they are the central threat for women. As this issue is highly disturbing and sometimes difficult to discuss, WSD techniques involve substantial emotional training to ensure women posses the ability to defend themselves, to foster self-confidence, and also necessary aggressiveness. Defences have been modified to accommodate womens' physiques and states of mind.

Additional issues included in WSD have to do with home invasion, third party protection (protecting your children) and using common objects (keys, handbag etc.) to block the assailant and counter-attack. In addition to WSD classes offered in any IKMF international branch by certified IKMF instructors, the IKMF has also produced an exclusive women self-defence DVD. The DVD is firstly a valuable learning tool for women allowing them to see what WSD is about and learn basic self-defence techniques. Secondly, the DVD is a teaching auxiliary tool for certified IKMF women instructors.

'Stay Away' is a self-defence program developed by the IKMF designed specifically from a woman's physical and psychological standpoint. Since 1997, over 30,000 women around the world have attended these seminars with incredible success. Since its inception this program has evolved, but the core has remained constant. This program tackles the issues of differences between the attacker and the woman; it focuses on women's size, strength, and mental condition while under attack. The Stay Away Program offers a number of different options. Most women value their financial security and tend to put the family first. There is no greater gift a woman can give to herself and her family than the gift of safety!
