Imi lichtenfeld was born a hungarian jew in budapest. He participated in wrestling, boxing, and gymnastics. when anti-semetic riots broke out, Imi rounded up his wrestling and boxing freinds to fight back and protect their jewish communities. This is when Imi found that sport was not that useful fighting in the streets so he developed his own set of techniques, Krav Maga. After Isreal was established and the IDF was created Imi became the cheif physical fitness and Krav Maga instructor. After retiring from the military Imi decided he would adapt his system of fighting to the civilian world, and in 1995 the IKMF was established.
What is Krav Maga?
Krav Maga is an Israeli tactical self defense system designed for the individual to be able to protect themselves and those around them from bigger, multiple attackers. Krav Maga is a system designed off of natural reaction and anyone can learn.
