Blog by Eyal Yanilov – KMG World Tour 2014 Events Summary

I have always wanted to do a World Tour (WT). Why? Why do the Rolling Stones, or the best acts in the world do it? I am sure they have their own reasons, but for me it is about teaching what I know, connecting with people and seeing the fruits of the work done by KMG (how the branches, schools, instructors and students are doing and progressing). I just needed a reason for “party” and the year 2014 was perfect as we celebrate different milestones in KM history. In the last part of this blog you can see which ones. Read More

Kid Kida (Krav Junior) – By Lance Manley

I arrived at Urban Sports Fitness in Warwick on a hot Monday afternoon in June to find a lovely room floor to floor with mats, where shoes are forbidden. Russell made it clear that the purpose of junior Krav Maga is to teach the kids valuable tools to help them cope with such issues as attempted abduction, physical bullying or even being attacked by several other children at the same time.

Krav Maga for military units, the key to success by Rune Lind

In my years as an instructor in Krav Maga for military units I have been asked a few questions by commanders and leaders: Why would somebody who carries a rifle need to know how to punch and kick? Why would somebody who works in teams know how to protect himself from an attack? My counter questions are usually these: What could you do if the rifle malfunctions just as the knife-wielding terrorist is running towards you? What could Krav Maga contribute to the physical and mental development of soldiers?

 

Introduction

Krav Maga originally come from the military. The founder, Imi Lichtenfeld, found himself as the chief hand to hand combat instructors as the state of Read More

Fighting Tactics in KMG

The person who knows how to use tactics in a fight will win the battle.
Translated from Hebrew, in the bible it is written “with stratagem you will do war”.

 

I want to continue where Tommy Blom and Dr Ole B left off, talking about the four “legs” of Krav Maga. During the first years that I trained KMG (Krav MaGa), Imi didn’t really put attention on fighting. In fact he did not encourage us at all to fight. He said he doesn’t wish that we will be good fighters, he emphasized that he wanted us to be good instructors that will build many good fighters. I always argued with him that how can I create good fighters without having the experience and knowledge Read More

Understanding Combat Mindset and Mental Conditioning by Ole B

You probably think you a have a good combat mindset, and you may be correct. But what if I ask you these questions: What are the best exercises in order to develop a good combat mindset? What happens under stress? How should you train in order to maintain focus on a specific task? What are the best techniques for relaxation? How do you become better in turning on and of your aggression? Do you feel that you have any good answers? This blogpost will hopefully give you some answers to these questions. Read More

Combining Krav Maga and physical training by Tommy Blom

In KMG we talk about 4 “legs” that we need to improve all the time, Technical, Tactical, Mental and Physical. If one of them is lacking the whole platform on top of them will fall to one side. I will talk about adding to Krav Maga and physical training.

Physical qualities are without a doubt an extremely important part of your Krav Maga. Lets think about it, if you can perform a deep squat with a heavy weight without compensations and help, your body has a bigger engine that will be more efficient in generating force, which means that you can punch harder, kick harder, and move faster. In short, you will be a better practitioner of Krav Maga. Are you training Krav Maga two times a week, three times a week, five times a week? Do you have time to add another activity to your schedule? Do you really need to, and if so what should you focus on and how much of it should you do?

First of all, Krav Maga is your main activity. That means Read More

The rigorous training and road to become a KMG instructor

The question I got lately and wish to focus on in this blog/article is “What is the GIC? How it has evolved under your tutelage (since the beginning), why it is so long, why it is divided into several parts, benefits of participating, what other instructors courses that you highly recommend?”

 

The Beginning and IDF

How to teach Krav Maga (KM) is part of our integrated system. If it was taught in a different manner it wouldn’t be the same. From the early days in the Israeli Defense Forces up to present time, we have put tremendous efforts and resources in educating high level instructors. Why? This is a simple question of life and death. Read More
