In addition, KMG provides a long-term growth path for its students. In China, we are proud to now have hundreds of intermediate and advanced students who have trained and grown with us over many years, some of whom are still continuing their Krav Maga education here with us, while others have gone on to train back in their home countries. Whether you are looking to learn Krav Maga for personal development or for a professional career, KMG can offer a real growth path for you.
All KMG China instructors undergo extensive training and rigorous testing by KMG's Global Team before they are qualified to teach. To certify, they are required not only to achieve high proficiency in Krav Maga, but must also qualify separately under our elite teaching program.
Apart from their initial qualification, KMG instructors are also required to train and re-certify yearly to maintain their professional standards. They also regularly receive updates from our headquarters in Israel and our global instructor community, to stay informed about new problems and new dangers in the world today.

In a Nutshell: Why KMG?
Currently based in Israel, KMG Chief Instructor Eyal Yanilov (born in 1959) studied Krav Maga under the personal tutelage of its founder, Imre 'Imi' Lichtenfeld (also known as Imi Sde-Or in Hebrew).
He has served as the Grandmaster’s closest assistant and foremost disciple since the early 1980s. Active in this field since 1973, Eyal is now its most senior instructor. He is the only individual who carries the highest grade ever given by Imi (Master level 3/Expert level 8) and holds the unique “Founder’s Diploma of Excellence.”
As head of the Israeli Krav Maga Association's professional committee, Eyal created a new and modern curriculum for Krav Maga, transforming it into an organized, formal system, both technical and tactical, built on principles of action and unique instructional methods.
In the mid 1990s, Eyal established the International Krav Maga Federation (IKMF), a sport association, and began to teach the system in many countries around the world, educating instructors and establishing branches. In the United States, Europe, Australia and Southeast Asia, Eyal taught Krav Maga to special military and law enforcement sectors, VIP protection units, as well as civilians.
In 2010, Eyal established Krav Maga Global (KMG), a professional organization designed to disseminate Krav Maga throughout the world in a structured format, while maintaining the highest level of training.
