Eyal Yanilov on Krav Desert 2015

Shalom,

I started the Touring and Training in Israel Events in the mid 1990’s, over 20 years ago (time is running…). Indeed, there were few events before that but they were not really the T&T program as you know it. These events hosted small groups from my American students who came to train and received a bit of touring in Israel also. The upgraded program started at the same time as I started spreading KMG in Europe in 1994 and 1995.

Israel is two-thirds desert and I, who grew up in Netanya with its beautiful beaches and Mediterranean climate, was always fascinated by the desert. When my younger sister and I were kids, our parents used to take us on trips in Israel and Sinai. Many of those journeys and short vacations were in tents or small huts in the desert areas and at the south beaches of Israel that are practically touching the desert. In addition, a significant part of my military service took place in the desert area of the south and east parts of Israel.

I always wanted to combine the Touring and Training events with my fascination and love for the desert. So…Finally we are making it happen for the first time.

David (Dudi), KMG’s general manager, the team at HQ and me, designed a fabulous event, Krav Desert. This event combines unique experiences, very interesting training sessions and visits to exceptional locations. We’ll spend one day of training on the beach in Netanya and from there on it is only the Israeli desert. We will be spending a couple of days in Eilat – a popular resort city, on the northern tip of the Red Sea; we will travel to one of World’s Wonders – the city of Petra in Jordan also known as the “Red Rock”. We will not miss Jerusalem but, this time we’ll do it in a different way than we do during Touring and Training events. The event will include navigation on mountain-bikes in the very unique Ramon Crater (a rare nature phenomena); repelling, camel riding, Jeep riding and much more

The training during the Krav Desert event will focus on the different pillars of Krav Maga: Self-Defense, Fighting Skills and Tactics; and Protection of others. This will be while taking into consideration the uniqueness of the event, the different, environments and equipment.

Why you should join KMG, the strongest Krav Maga organization in the world

Blog by David Gorin, General Manager of Krav Maga Global

When I first started in Krav Maga Global, the professionalism of Eyal Yanilov and his team of dedicated country directors, school owners and instructors struck me. I knew right from the beginning that the size of Krav Maga Global would grow exponentially.

Blog by Eyal: Why should you train KMG / Self-Defense?

Why should you train KMG / Self Defense? The truth is, a much better question would be – why should someone not make an effort to learn self-defense? No one even thinks about getting into deep water without knowing how to swim and if a thought like this comes to mind, that mind eventually will stay without a body, and the sea will remove the genes of that person from the gene pool :) Read More

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
