Join Krav Maga Combatives in their Intensive Krav Maga Bootcamp where you will be able to immerse completely in training without the distraction of work. By being exposed to this constant "stress" from 6 to 7 hours of training per day, the body begins to adapt quickly, and you will have a far higher retention rate than those who attend weekly classes. Located on Spain's Costa Brava, the training takes place in a truly beautiful part of the world where the Pyrenees meet the Mediterranean, with many local beaches. You will train on the sand or the paved areas adjacent, which provide a vital touch of realism to combative training. After the camp, you will be ready for any episode of personal violence.
Accommodation is included in the package price. You will be staying in a 2-person room during the whole camp.
A typical day begins at 07:00 with a road run along the scenic coast followed by the now "infamous" combat conditioning circuits on the beach - these are grueling, functional fitness workouts that will push you to your limits. To allow participants to get their breath back, next exercise is striking chain drills on the thai pads, focus mits, and kick shields, which teaches students how to utilize full body weight when striking an assailant and build up an arsenal of effective combinations.
There are many aggression and stress drills that push your cardio and simulate the combat stress (adrenaline response) experienced during a violent encounter. After a healthy lunch of local organic produce, you will continue with escape combatives or techniques for defending against common attacks, such as grabs, holds, headlocks, chokes, defense against punches, kicks, knees and elbows are also drilled with the emphasis being placed on turning the defense to an offense as quickly as possible.
Defense against armed assailants is also covered and is an integral part of the system. Weapons covered include pistols/handguns, knives/edged weapons, sticks/bats, bottles/glasses/ashtrays. Warrior mindset - understanding the combative or warrior mindset - is also covered. It is an aspect of training and preperation that Krav Maga Combatives take extremely serious. During the Boot Camp, there is a three-hour presentation that consists of studies of real attacks (videos of violent assaults, stabbings, e.t.c), situational awareness presentation, understanding the dynamics and levels of violence, understanding the stress response reaction (adrenaline response), and the O.O.D.A loop and its relevance to combatives.

The art of Krav Maga was founded by Imi Lichtenfeld (Sde - Or). Imi was born in Bratislava to a renowned police officer and circus acrobat. As a child, Imi excelled in various sports such as wrestling and boxing and practiced several martial arts. When anti-semite riots began to spread through his home town, Imi and his family were forced to immigrate to Israel (Palestine at the time).
In 1948, once Israel had declared its independence, IDF's (Israeli Defense Force) officials approached Imi and requested him to develop a system of self defense and fighting based upon his experience and his work with special forces units as the 'Hagana', 'Palmach', and 'Palyam'.
During his 20 years of service as chief instructor of hand-to-hand combat, Imi carefully refined the methods of Krav Maga, making it the official combative training for all military personnel, Israeli police, and security forces. Imi developed a doctrine enabling both fit and out-of-shape soldiers to practice it successfully. Rather than rigid movements and techniques requiring years of training, Krav Maga integrated instinctive and simple moves accessible to all.
In 1964, Imi retired from the IDF and continued teaching Krav Maga to civilians, as well as law enforcement units and military applications. The Krav Maga association was founded by Imi and several of his students in 1978, aiming to promote Krav Maga's unique techniques locally and throughout the world.
Krav Maga Combatives Intensive Bootcamp takes place on Spain's Costa Brava, approximately 125 km from Barcelona and 15km from the French border. This is a truly beautiful part of the world where the Pyrenees meet the Mediterranean.
The training takes place on one of the many local beaches, on the sand or the paved areas adjacent. This provides a vital touch of realism to combatives training; in a real episode of interpersonal violence you will not have the luxury of 40mm judo mats or the smooth training surface common to the gym or dojo.
