KMG’s Krav Maga General Instructor Course (GIC) is renowned for being the most comprehensive program for civilian Krav Maga Instructors. This Instructor Course produces top-shelf instructors who can effectively train different types of people, regardless of size, age, or starting fitness ability, to be able to use the system for their personal protection and well-being.
The course operates worldwide and is delivered by our highly experienced Global Instructor Team (GIT). The main certification course lasts a total of 180 hours (about 24 days), and is divided into two or three phases. It is designed to develop physical Krav Maga skills as well as the ability to teach others through a comprehensive coaching program. The course concludes with technical, teaching, and physical conditioning exams.
Successful completion of the course is dependent on meeting specific criteria at the end of each phase, as well as passing the final test of physical skills and teaching abilities. The successful candidate will receive a Graduate Grade in Krav Maga and a General Instructor Certification under Krav Maga Global (KMG), authorized by KMG Chief Instructor, Eyal Yanilov.
In addition to the GIC, the Pre-GIC training program will be provided for all qualified applicants. The Pre-GIC is designed to solidify both foundational learning in Krav Maga, as well as hone teaching ability, which is critical to becoming a KMG Instructor. The Pre-GIC program will be a combination of in-person training, feedback, and access to training materials, and starts about 6 months before the GIC. In-person training will be provided in selected cities in mainland China.
The material that is covered in the General Instructor Course (GIC) and Pre-GIC is vast. There is theory, practice, techniques, tactics, training methods, and much more. Below are just some of the things that are covered:
