KRAV MAGA FOR MILITARY AND SPECIAL FORCES
Krav Maga defensive tactics, fighting skills, and CQB training for Military and Special Forces
Krav Maga Global (KMG) by Eyal Yanilov is the world’s leading provider of specialized Krav Maga training for the Government sector.
Krav Maga as a system, has been used by military, law enforcement and special units since the birth of Krav Maga in the 1940s. After the State of Israel was formed in 1948, Krav Maga has also been the preferred CQB system of the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF).
Eyal Yanilov, head of KMG and one of the leading figures in the history of Krav Maga, brought Krav Maga out of Israel introduced it globally in the 1980s and 1990s. Since then, Krav Maga has been assimilated in more than 60 countries and has been fully implemented by many countries’ military, government and security forces. Today, KMG’s system for implementation and personnel training, combined with our direct and no-nonsense approach, is proven to be the most effective for operators and units worldwide. We provide them with specialized tools that are easy to learn and maintain, and allows them to solve threats and problems as efficiently as possible.
Why Train Your Unit in Krav Maga?
The needs and missions of modern military units may vary from daily soldiers’ and officers’ routines, through combat in different terrains, close protection assignments (executive/VIP), peace-keeping and peace-enforcing missions, counter terrorism and rescue operations, as well as close-quarters or urban raids in the heart of enemy territory, or at the center of a densely populated city.
Well-equipped personnel are common in most modern military units around the world, but are they also well-trained to deal with different levels of conflict? Are they capable of correct decision-making during high-stress events? Are they knowledgeable on how to solve violent conflicts without the use of lethal force, especially in non-war times?
Modern defense and military forces need the proper methods and tools to guide and educate soldiers, officers, agents and members of elite units in the development of essential technical, tactical, mental and physical capabilities. A key part of that education is studying and training in CQB, self-defense, 3rd party protection, defensive tactics, hand-to-hand, and close quarters combat (with or without different kind of weapons in the hand).
This is the advantage in the Krav Maga Global approach: Not only do we cover all those types of training, but we take them to a higher level, with proven results. KMG avoids methods which train officers to be boxers or sports fighters who can only get good results in the ring, or mere operators of equipment, i.e. technicians who only know how to use firearms or other “tools” that make holes in paper targets.
Krav Maga Global training ensures that every unit and sector of the military gets the relevant training course according to its needs, equipment, characteristics and risk analysis. Curriculum includes general and specific materials, which covers topics such as weapon retention, defending armed and unarmed assaults and threats, dealing with multiple opponents, protection of dignitaries and fellow officers, and functioning in situations where firearms cannot be discharged or are otherwise useless at close range (i.e. the weapon is out of ammunition or jammed; it is too dangerous or illegal to shoot; shooting does not solve the problem or does not stop the attacker from inflicting damage; etc.)
KMG’s unique system and skilled instructors, provides units with the highest level of education and comprehensive training not found anywhere else today. The course material and curriculum is divided into six levels: three “Fighter” levels and three “Warrior” levels. Officers must pass the tests and complete specific requirements to advance through each level.
