Krav Maga VIP and Close Protection | Krav Maga Global (KMG)

Krav Maga Global (KMG) has unique and highest level of experience and knowledge in educating and preparing Krav Maga VIP instructors for the Governmental sectors, like close protection officers (CPO) and security teams. KMG provides CPO’s, and the like, the necessary tactical, mental, technical and physical preparation in subjects of hand-to-hand combat, armed and unarmed fighting skills and tactics, 3rd party and VIP protection. KMG also provides knowledge in self-defense, restraint and control, and defensive tactics, as well as how to teach those subjects to the relevant organisations.

Graduates of the KMG General Instructors Course (GIC) are given the tools to instruct students in their schools who are working in relevant fields of close protection and security who need a specific curriculum from the whole KMG material that is suitable for their needs.

With the specialized VIP and 3rd party protection part of the KMG curriculum we have the ability to bring, to the highest level possible and in the shortest time, any group of in-house instructors to teach and train CPO’s and their supporting teams.



KMG’s Krav Maga System integrates science and experience, instinct based self-defense and fighting techniques with designated techniques, tactics, training methods and drills. KMG offers a strong curriculum that teaches and develops courage, controlled aggression and determination, fighting spirit and combat mindset, situational awareness, as well as avoidance, prevention tactics and verbal deescalation of conflict, whenever the need and the possibility arise.

The KMG system is constructed from three integrated parts (which in an actual confrontation may become one):

[checklist style=”circle”]

  • CQB, Armed and Unarmed Hand to Hand Combat – The officer  learns how to defeat an opponent quickly and effectively. This involves different elements of a fight: tactics, techniques, combinations, psychology and mentality of a fighter.  Use of Knives, Sticks & Guns for attacks are integrated.
  • Self-Defense Techniques – Techniques that enable the practitioner to effectively defend himself against both armed and unarmed attackers. The techniques are eventually practiced under stress, in simulations of adverse conditions and environments, such as in the dark, on the ground, indoors and outdoors and in situations that limit the practitioner’s movement.
  • Close Protection and 3rd Party Protection – Defending a 3rd party (a friend, family member, a VIP, a fellow officer or countryman) against all kinds of attacks and threats; dealing with one or more attackers; moving, evacuating and taking care of the other person; functioning under different conditions in different environments and locations.

The Krav Maga 3rd party protection (civilian) is the ability to protect your loved ones such as children, family members, friends or colleagues in situations of conflict. Krav Maga Global training incorporates skills to protect other people in situations of threat and risk. Bespoke Krav Maga courses are available to cater for groups who would like to gain knowledge in both skills to protect themselves and their loved ones. For more information please contact KMG HQ.


Krav Maga VIP and Close Protection | Krav Maga Global (KMG)


Krav Maga Close Protection (professional) is the ability to protect public, wealthy or political figures who are deemed to be at risk. In an ever-increasing market where the demand for highly qualified Close Protection Services is on the increase, the modern day close protection operative (or bodyguard) is required to ensure that the core skills that are required to carry out their role are maintained to the highest standards in an increasing competitive industry.



CPO’s are often thought to be reliant on the use of firearms to carry out their duties in a situation of conflict, or “Attack On Principal” (AOP), against a protected person however, in a politically sensitive world,  whereby the carriage of firearms is becoming more stringent, where the level of conflict doesn’t legally allow the use of firearm, or when it is too dangerous to use a firearm during an AOP, the need to possess unarmed combat and defensive tactics is a required skill for all those working in, or seeking work in, the global close protection market.

Krav Maga training focuses on solutions against attacks and life threatening situations. Krav Maga teaches the student how to use the techniques even under high levels of mental duress – such as in minimal light, surprised, or when under stress – because such distractions are often present in violent confrontations.

At Krav Maga Global (KMG) we emphasize:

[blockquote align=””]Krav Maga Global education and training programs for all security professionals are designed to create an integrated fighter who will function appropriately under the most stressful conditions – using the most effective techniques and tactics with determination and situation-appropriate aggressiveness.[/blockquote]

Krav Maga Global conduct specially tailored courses and seminars in Krav Maga for government agencies, companies and teams, and we include basic training to more advanced instructors education. Courses, and open & closed seminar lengths vary, running from three days to three weeks. It is important to note, however, that courses by Krav Maga  Global in VIP and 3rd party protection does not provide the student with the necessary certifications of becoming a Close Protection Officer. Our courses and seminars are confined to dealing with events leading up to, during and after an incident of attack on principal (AOP). Any VIP or 3rd party protection drills and formations the course will cover are merely provided on the most basic level so as not  to interfere with standard operating procedures in in the students job or teams.
