Krav Maga was founded and developed originally by Imi (Lichtenfeld) Sde –Or. Imi created Krav maga for military purposes, meant to improve combat abilities of Israeli IDF soldiers in the early 50’s. Over the years, the Kravmaga system was further developed by Imi to provide self-defense solutions for the civil sector as well. Avi Moyal, IKMF chairman and head instructor, as well as Imi’s direct student, continues on to develop Kravmaga along with other high ranking Israeli Krav Maga GIT instructors. Nowadays, Krav Maga is providing self-defense solutions to a broader variety of sectors, among which are:

  • Civilian sector – offering and teaching self-defense qualifications to adults, women, children; Each carefully adapted to match the variable needs of every sub sector
