About Krav Maga Global
Krav Maga Global (KMG) is derived from the authentic self-defense system originally created by Imi Lichtenfeld, which was used in the 1940s only by the military in the Israeli Defense Force. The system was then developed in the 1960s to be adapted for civilian people and spread throughout the world. It is a practical and tactical system that teaches you how to prevent, manage and overcome all types of threats and violence.
Krav Maga suits everyone, regardless of age and gender, and all techniques can be carried out without much regard for clothes, shoes or other things that the practitioner can possibly wear. In the same way, the environment has no major impact on the techniques used.
The system was officially developed in Israel by Imi Lichtenfeld in realistic forms and in threatful situations. This means that there is no hocus pocus - just self-defense. Today, Krav Maga is further developed by Eyal Yanilov, who is Imi's chosen successor.
The techniques found in Krav Maga are constantly tested, modified and improved to match the threats and attacks that are most current today. The system is used by many professionals, authorities and institutions.

Through training, Krav Maga teaches the practitioner to perceive and respond to a potentially dangerous situation and thus have control over himself, his opponents and his surroundings. Krav Maga prepares the practitioner for all possible scenarios, and teaches the practitioner to take advantage of the surroundings. Mental preparedness, conflict management and handling of situations with high stress levels are extensively trained as these elements are essential for the knowledge to function in reality.
