As with many martial arts, there are many organisations that practice Krav Maga. We think it is a good thing as the message continues to spread and more lives are saved. 

We respect many of them, however we believe the IKMF IS THE GOLD STANDARD as it was formed by Imi himself.


At the IKMF we teach to the principles of Krav Maga, the principles Imi based the system on. The guiding principle is to avert danger. We always assume the worst possible scenarios when training. A good example is you have been caught unaware by a surprise attack by multiple attackers. You have be able to act immediately:

  • Defend against the attack – stop further attacks

  • Counter attack and control – neutralise the attacker

  • Scan for other attackers and scene – know who next and exit routes

  • More attacks and exit – don’t stay in a dangerous place


All this despite the rush of adrenaline.

We also avoid going down to the ground at all costs. In a situation of multiple attackers, it can be fatal.

The IKMF Global Instructor Team (GIT) are arguably the best Krav Maga practitioners in the world, each averaging 25 years of Krav Maga experience. They teach and certify their instructors first hand – from the source. What makes them different, is the passion they have for Krav Maga.
