krav maga for MilitaryBy attending the Military Instructor Courses by KMG, you will experience the true origins of Krav Maga. The military Instructor Courses (MIC) gives the participants a simple, effective and aggressive set of techniques which requires minimal time for training and delivers maximum results. Our system is integrating different tools, weapons, and assault rifles elevating the abilities of correct decisions and all levels of problem solving in times of violent conflicts. The system deals with scenarios where soldiers and operators face threatening situations of attacks and dangers, when they are armed or unarmed, alone or in a team, and in close quarters or open spaces. The Krav Maga Global training gives options in which higher force alternatives cannot, or must not, immediately be accessed. The soldier must also be able to respond with defensive techniques and combatives until a transition to a higher force option can be achieved. The MIC features both offensive and defensive techniques and tactics.

Our way of Krav Maga employs a systematical approach, by developing well-integrated and highly effective techniques, tactics, actions and principles, which can applied to deal with a variety of attack scenarios. The system is characterized by coherent and logical thinking that builds up easy, natural with practical techniques and desirable actions which feature simple body movements. KMG’s Krav Maga system is designed so that a soldier is trained to solve new problems under stress and specific principles can be applied to deal with several potential attacks/scenarios sequentially or simultaneously.

KMG Military Instructor CourseThe MIC is designed for three different target groups:

[checklist style=”circle”]

  • Military instructors and education officers (those in charge of planning, implementing and teaching hand-2-hand combat training for military personnel).
  • Active members of military units who wish to expand their close quarter fighting abilities as a soldier.
  • Existing KMG instructors (graduates of our General Instructors Courses) who wish to extend their knowledge in Military Krav Maga.



Please note that the general MIC is more or less tailored for our KMG instructors who have already done 23 days of instructor training and who are proficient in striking, kicking and general Krav Maga techniques. We require non-Krav Maga instructors who wish to take a part in this Instructors Course, to take a five day pre-training course to introduce the participants to a minimum of fighting and instructing capabilities.




Military units and service members

Military Instructor Course

We divide the military instructor course for active service members into two main types. The first part is the regular MIC, which introduces the soldiers and officers to how Krav Maga can be implemented into military training, how it should be taught and how KMG operates. The second part is specifically designed for military units and is divided into several levels that are called Fighter and Warrior Levels. These levels gradually gives the soldier (and instructors) all the tools required to solve specific problems confined to specific units and/or type of missions they are training for.

A Fighter level course usually contain 50 hours of training and a Warrior level course is about 75-80 hours of training for each level. Both Fighter and Warrior is built upon three levels each, which consists of fighting, tactics, mental conditioning & mindset as well as scenario training.

We conduct specialized courses and seminars for defense forces all over the globe on their bases. Several countries have implemented Krav Maga by Krav Maga Global fully into their soldier training and education.

KMG  School owners and instructors

KMG School owners and Instructors will be introduced to a different mindset, finishing mode, subjects, techniques and tactics, as well as a greater understanding of techniques from the General Instructor Course (GIC). These skills will give you the opportunity to show and demonstrate Military Krav Maga to relevant students in the KMG affiliated school, and also create small closed groups (active service members) to train on these techniques. It is required that any further dialogue and demonstration of Military Krav Maga for governmental units to be conducted by a KMG Global Team Member (GIT) and also in coordination with KMG HQ and branch director.
