The Krav Maga Kids Instructor Course (KIC) by KMG offers participants unique and valuable knowledge in a field of great fascination and importance; Self-defense for children in a safe and playful environment.

The course provides training skills necessary for the correct and successful guidance of children, teenagers and youth. These skills differ from those required while teaching adults and have a great contribution in transforming the Instructor into a multi sector tutor with high skills in communicating with children and their parents. This also contributes to the sense of satisfaction the Instructor gains in transferring valuable life skills of self-defense, not only to mature students, but also to children who need these skills sometimes more than adults.
