More instructors qualified & new branches opened in West Norwood Leisure Centre & then Peckham as we developed the UK branch of the European Federation of Krav Maga, FEKM-UK.
What is Krav Maga?
Genuine Krav Maga must be FAST, SIMPLE, EFFECTIVE & CONTROLLED.
Krav Maga literally means contact combat in Hebrew. It was originally developed by Imi Lichtenfeld, a gymnast, wrestler & boxer, in Bratislava, Czechoslovakia to help protect the community against fascist gangs in the 1930s. In 1948 Imi became Chief Instructor of Physical Fitness & Krav Maga for the Israeli Defence Force (IDF). He started the IKMA (Israeli Krav Maga Association) in 1978, following which the FBI sent 22 people to Israel to attend a Krav Maga Basic Instructor Course thereby beginning the international expansion & hence to our own shores. It is now studied by military & police worldwide, by private & public organisations responsible for security &, above all private citizens seeking greater safety, confidence, fitness & speaking for the FEKM, a real atmosphere of friendship & common purpose.
It’s notoriety has brought Krav Maga to the big screen in films such as The Debt, the Taken series with Liam Neeson, Enough with Jennifer Lopez, Jack Reacher & the Mission Impossible series with Tom Cruise, Expendables with Jason Statham, Daniel Craig’s James Bond, The Debt: Welcome To The Mission, & The Gunman with Sean Penn.
