We are not about glitz. We are not about glamour. We are not about politics. We are about REAL life. We are about REAL threats. We are about REAL solutions. We are the International Krav Maga Federation.
Just as there are different personalities and mindsets among people, there are different mindsets among krav-maga organizations in the United States.
If you are only looking for a good work out then the IKMF is not for you.
If you are looking for something that you can use to go beat people up with then the IKMF is definitely not for you!
However, if you are looking for a real world, self defense and tactical system that will prepare you to protect and defend yourself and those you love through awareness, through avoidance and, if necessary, through neutralizing a threat then IKMF Krav Maga is most definitely for you!!
Imi Lichtenfield (founder of Krav Maga and of the International Krav Maga Federation) taught people Krav Maga so that “one may walk in peace.”
A civilian trains in Krav Maga so that he or she and their family can walk in peace.
A Law Enforcement officer trains in Krav Maga so that the community may walk and live in peace.
Military personnel train in Krav Maga so that the citizens and their country may walk and live in peace.
Security and Executive Protection personnel train in Krav Maga so that their areas of responsibility may walk in peace whether that be in the private sector or whole governments.
The IKMF in the United States today carries on Imi’s philosophy in all of our major sections of training:
So, if you want something that will indeed get you in top physical condition but also prepare you mentally and physically for dealing with that threat on the street, then . . . IKMF Krav Maga is for YOU!
