Bottom line, what do we wish for ourselves and for our children? Health, joy of life, self-fulfillment and success in whatever one chooses to do. We, as those who have accompanied, mentored and educated many thousands of men and women, teenagers and children of all ages – are convinced that this is in fact the goal of any educational system.
Why do we send our children to study if not to ensure their health, fulfillment, joy and success? This is why we always emphasize unequivocally: The Israeli Krav Maga Academy is much more than a Krav Maga training center. This is a content world that touches on all aspects of our lives. It is an advanced learning system that gives us and our children the ability not only to take care of themselves and cope better with life’s challenges, but also to flourish and thrive personally, professionally and socially. What exactly is it about?
From our vast experience as instructors and teacher educators, from the vast knowledge we have gained from the glorious legacy of the Krav Maga method and as a result of an orderly and dedicated educational approach – we have developed a living, smart, attentive and empowering learning system that gives us and our children the following three great abilities:
- The ability to protect ourselves from violence – physical, verbal and emotional
- The ability to build and cultivate a strong, healthy and supportive emotional inner world
- The ability to grow as people who fulfill themselves, contribute to society and are contributed by it
The uniqueness of the Israeli Krav Maga Academy is that it has built itself on the basis of acquiring these capabilities. The academy was originally built as a training center that is its purpose – and therefore it has succeeded in achieving far-reaching achievements in the processes of training, education and empowerment among adults and above all – among our future generations, children and youth. Over the years, the heads of the academy, Shachar Izraeli and Elad Binenfeld, international experts in the Krav Maga method, have built and delivered training sets that achieve results, provide self-confidence, vital emotional abilities and life skills that develop resilience and self-fulfillment – Even among populations whose starting point was particularly complex and challenging. The basic premise of the academy is that every person of all ages deserves to have the best tools that will allow him to express and fulfill himself optimally and live in a safe, supportive and empowering space.
Today the academy is a school that trains schools. The Israel Krav Maga Academy is an international center that aims to train as many learning centers around the world as possible, which use its training method, assimilate it in the education and training systems, in private and public settings, small and large – thus providing as many generations with tools for security and self-fulfillment And ensure growing personal and social resilience and prosperity. The establishment and training of training centers that are successful both professionally and organizationally – is not a simple craft. It is a whole set of knowledge, values, teaching methods and complex educational dynamics. After all, in every country and in every context – the reality is different and there are other challenges and populations with different mental and cultural backgrounds. Not only are the trainees different, but also the teachers are different, the education systems are different and the mental and behavioral habits are different and changing.
