The fastest possible way to improve your Krav Maga training is to come directly to Israel. Over a period of a week or two of intensive training you will learn moves in a way that they will become instinctive to your body and easier to remember and apply. The training will cover disarms, striking and grappling, escape from impossible situations. You will get a feel for the country and the culture that produced Krav Maga, in a way that you could never do from a distance. You will be surrounded by soldiers wherever you go, as they are everywhere.
Israeli Krav International (IKI) aims to spread authentic, up to date, and practical Krav Maga; to make it accessible to those who need it, to recruit men and women of the highest character to learn and teach this system. The style is open to all regardless of location, nationality or faith. IKI aims to provide the best service and support at the lowest cost. Working with trust, IKI believes that if you are fairly and honestly treated with integrity, you will respond accordingly - teach the style only to worthy individuals; that your motivation will be for the sake of the art and the protection of life and property. IKI aims to work together, to learn from each other, and to grow as individuals and as martial artists.
Rooms are available, private, or with a roommate. Israel Krav International can make these arrangements for you. You are free to choose wherever you want to stay. Most of the students choose to rent in Maaleh Adumim and stay within a walking distance from the training center.
When you come to Israel to train Krav Maga, you will combine the theory and the practice. You will see the people and hear their stories. You will be stopped at checkpoints, malls and supermarkets, checked, and questioned. This is how everyone survives.
The classes include fitness, sparring, grappling, gun and knife disarms and dealing with suicide attackers. The disarmed do not take place in a "sterile" environment but are acted out in real time against aggressive determined opponents. Of course full protective gear are used.
The instructors will start with the Muay Thai's low kick, the front kick drilling with both the rear leg and front leg, the side kick and the knee kick. Afterwards, they will add in some striking drills; basic punching and blocking. They integrate the use of the elbow strike in these drills.
Next, the instructors will do drills that combine blocking, punching, kicking and take-downs. You will continue with ground compliance techniques as well as rapid destruction techniques. One learns when to use each based on a force continuum model.
IKI instructors train to defend against knife threats and attacks. They also train with improvised weapons such as jackets, belts and key chains.
You will begin with hand grabs, shirt grabs, chokes, and abductions. Afterwards, you will move on to knife threats, then knife attacks. The instructors will teach you to deal with every sort of possible angle, close range and from a bit of distance. You will also cover gun threats from every possible direction and angle.
Later on you will move on to hand to hand combat; proper fighting stance (not the same as Karate or boxing or Taekwondo), how to block, how to strike using hands, knees, elbows, and legs. You also cover defense in confined spaces, in a car, or an elevator.
You will deal with situations when you are pushed against the wall, attacked with a knife, stick or gun. IKI might sometimes cover anti rape, hostage situations, school yard conflicts, and VIP protection.
The tour of the old city will cover thousands of years of history including the latest finds, digs, and research. You will feel what it was like to live in Jerusalem in Temple times and deal with the Romans. You will walk the path where the Hebrews and non-Hebrews walked to get to the Temple, step on the same stones, see the gates from which they entered to offer sacrifices. You will see the ritual baths where they emerged to purify themselves before entering the Holy Temple, Beth HaMiqdash, and you will see original stones from the destroyed temple.
You can visit Ir David (The city of David), which is where the Hebrews lived before the old city was built. The security guards in this area are excellent, they were trained by myself and other well know Krav Maga instructors.
You will understand the pain the Jewish people suffered at having lost the most magnificent building of its time, being sent into slavery and exile, and waiting 2,000 years. And 2,000 years later, descendants of these exiled people will return to Israel and resume the ancient fight.
Walking the streets of the old city you will understand the development of the Krav Maga techniques, as you will see the narrow streets and stairways. Sadly, many attacks have been taken place here and from these cases that they developed new techniques and approaches. Jerusalem Krav Maga emerges from these streets.
There is much to see in Jerusalem and it is up to you to determine what you want to see; you will certainly see ancient Hebrew historical sites but you can also see historical sights of importance to Christians, such as churches and places where it is said Jesus was.
You can also visit the sites in or near Maaleh Adumim. Maaleh Adumim is a modern town in the hills of the Judean desert. The name comes from a town that existed in Biblical times. When you return home you will have more of a feel, understanding, and appreciation of Krav Maga than any local instructors.
Israeli Krav International is located about 7 kilometers east of Jerusalem, on the way to the Dead Sea, and is surrounded by the beautiful hills of the Judean desert.
