Our Beliefs

We believe that proper krav maga training can prevent most of the voilence around us.

The most essential question is what is the correct way to educate? We trust there isn't one correct answer, though after over 21 years of experience in training of krav maga, we are certain that we can pass on our ideals and beliefs to our apprentices and their parents. The method was developed by Imi Sde-Or Lichtenfeld in the 30s in Europe, before World War II, it helped the jewish popuation withstand the anti semitism. The same method is still relevant nowadays to whoever wants to feel safe.
We believe, that our heritage and cultural values, our struggle for survival and the right to live here, connects us as Israelis in our free country, one of these values is krav maga which is taught both in Israel and abroad.
A nation that does not know its past, its present is poor and its future is uncertain. This is Yigal Alon's definition of patriotism, and krav maga is first of all education of values and discipline.

According to Krav maga's values, when one's life is threatened, he must do whatever it takes to survive.

Creating competition between the students is not our goal, our goal is to prepare them for the actual danger:

• "Do whatever it takes to prevent from getting hurt - it's better be smart than right in these situations, use all of your senses to avoid danger."
• "Use your knowledge only if it's necessary"

When it comes to self-defense, Krav maga is a very effective and progressive method. A well-trained person can avoid danger and prevent a voilent situation. It fits every age group. We believe in a true and fundemental change that will allow us as a society to create a future for ourselves and our children. Without this belief we would not have succeeded raising our children and planning our future lives. We are constantly making effort to improve our society and we educate our trainees accordingly both in schools and facilities across all over the country.

About us

Shachar Izraeli and Elad Binenfeld were raised by the International Krav Maga Federation (IKMF) Eyal Inilov, Gabbi Noah, Eli Ben Ami and Avi Moel were their mentors during 1997-2009. The members of the IKMF distributed the values and the method of Imi Lichtenfeld, the founder of Krav Maga. Shachar, who was Ben-Ami's best apprenticein those years, trained in all of his facilities. Elad, who trained under Ben-Ami as a kid, throughout the years became Shachar's apprentice. Elad also became a trainer which led to partnership between Shachar and Elad.
