Authentic Israeli Krav Maga

The term Krav Maga has been much abused by the martial arts industry with a broad range of martial arts training being broadly described as ‘Krav Maga’.  Authentic Israeli Krav Maga is very different to what is portrayed as Krav Maga and can be linked back directly to the Krav Maga as taught in the Israeli Defence Forces – the home of Krav Maga. The benefit of training in real Krav Maga is that students learn the actual techniques first hand with the training context that Krav Maga was designed to be delivered in.

Where did the Krav Maga come from

Paul Grey was originally trained and certified under Eyal Yanllov and Amon Darsa via the original IKMF 23 Day Graduate Instructor course. Eyal and Amnon were taught directly by Imi Sde Or, the founder of Krav Maga.  In terms of Krav Maga lineage, it is now impossible to train closer to the source of Krav Maga than Paul has.

Paul later went on to train with Krav Maga worldwide at Expert level and trained over Law Enforcement and Force on Force training certifications. Krav Maga training has taken Paul to the USA, Israel, across Europe.

The benefits of training in authentic Krav Maga

Krav Maga is a personal survival system. It’s simplicity of purpose and emphasise of natural instinctive movements delivered under realistic scenarios are at the core of what makes Krav Maga, well Krav Maga… The reliance is simplicity and pressure testing makes for a fast to learn, easily retained system of self defence.  Krav Maga proved so effective as a personal self defence system for the worlds most battle tested military force – the Israeli Defence Forces – it was taught to over 500 military and Law Enforcement units across the world, expanding to become the worlds most successful ‘Reality Based’ Self Defence system.
