Israel4Teens - Train in Self-Defense Krav Maga

We believe in a balanced healthy lifestyle and train our Isrfael4Teens Summer Sababa participants in practical self-defense based on Krav Maga martial arts. Krav Maga was developed by the Israeli Defense Forces as a fast and effective way to train soldiers for close-quarters hand-to-hand combat.

When we’re at the kibbutz, you’ll spend on average 2 hours strengthening your body and learning to protect yourself and others.  Gaining this new skill set will help you grow your confidence, and make you strong in body and strong in mind.

The Krav Maga History

The art of Krav Maga was founded by Imi Lichtenfeld (Sde - Or). Imi was born in Bratislava to a renowned police officer and circus acrobat. As a child, Imi excelled in various sports such as wrestling and boxing and practiced several martial arts. When anti-semite riots began to spread through his home town, Imi and his family were forced to immigrate to Israel. In 1948, once Israel had declared its independence, IDF's (Israeli Defense Force) officials approached Imi and requested him to develop a system of self defense and fighting based upon his experience and his work with special forces units as the 'Hagana', 'Palmach', and 'Palyam'. During his 20 years of service as chief instructor of hand-to-hand combat, Imi carefully refined the methods of Krav Maga, making it the official combative training for all military personnel, Israeli police, and security forces. Imi developed a doctrine enabling both fit and out-of-shape soldiers to practice it successfully. Rather than rigid movements and techniques requiring years of training, Krav Maga integrated instinctive and simple moves accessible to all.

In 1964, Imi retired from the IDF and continued teaching Krav Maga to civilians, as well as law enforcement units and military applications. The Krav Maga association was founded by Imi and several of his students in 1978, aiming to promote Krav Maga's unique techniques locally and throughout the world.
