Confusing and complicated techniques are dangerous and a person could get killed by using a technique that compromises one’s safety. Once you start learning with us you will very quickly see how effective our system is and how confident you will feel being able to implement them.
It is also a unique opportunity and experience to actually study with us here in Israel. You will meet and work out with our IKI students in Israel and will also tour Israel, learning about our history and Krav Maga history.
Should you decide you would like to progress and become a member of IKI and test for a teaching certificate and/or ranks, you will be able to be tested at the end of the course.

Welcome to Israel Esther & Moshe
IKI Main Office
Israeli Krav International
Tour & Train (June 2014) was a defining point in my life. I came with a very training focused mentality and was soundly impressed with both the rigour of practise and realism of the techniques. Moshe and his fellow instructors really will teach you as much as you want to know and by the end of the program I personally felt much more able to defend myself in any given situation. Although much more can be said in the way of training, it is really something you must experience for yourself and I can’t recommend it highly enough!
As for the touring part of the program this truly exceeded my expectations, you have the opportunity to see Israel’s past and present. Yad Vashem in particular is incredibly moving, there is no memorial in Western Europe that is comparable. Further, you will meet some of the warmest people in Ma’ale Adumim. I was invited to share Shabbat meal with a Rabbi and his family, an experience I will not forget.
The Caliber 3 courses are run by real Israeli warriors who rely on the techniques they teach to enable Israel’s survival. Everyone I met there was incredibly passionate and really wanted you to understand the concepts, there was absolutely no room for just ‘going through the motions’. The Counter Terrorism instruction in particular speaks for itself and is absolutely unmissable.
Tour & Train and IKI in general has such a fantastic atmosphere I can only really compare it to family, I thoroughly look forward to returning!

“I attended Tour & Train in June 2011.
We trained for a minimum of 7 hours a day. This type of intensive training promotes increased muscle-memory …eg techniques will start to become instinctive. No different from learning/practicing the mechanics of a golf swing. When it all comes together, you will remember it.
I remember within the last couple of days we did a pistol disarm (to the back of head) with our eyes closed to test our technique. It was the same result as eyes open. We felt the gun and reacted.
I will be traveling back to see Moshe next June. It is an experience you won’t forget.
If you are serious/enthusiastic about Krav or even CQC in general, you will enjoy it.
Train hard, stay safe.” Alan Blackney, Perth, Australia
“I’m Alberto, from Mexico City. I spent a week in Israel, training with Moshe and really wonderful group of friends from four continents last June, and I can absolutely say that my skills improved dramatically. You have to take in count that this tour and training implies a total immersion into Krav Maga: you LIVE Krav, training from 5 to 11 hours a day. That is the amazing thing about Krav Maga, you don’t need to learn elaborated katas and techniques in order to get confidence on yourself, you go there to get a concept. And once you get that concept, the rest comes naturally.”
Alberto Labra, Mexico
Moshe, when I chose to travel to Israel, in November 2012 for Krav Maga Training, I did a lot of research in terms of where to train, and I have to say I made the right choice to train with you [IKI] in Israel, because you “Keep It Real” and as a personal witness I can say, you make sure that each and every student learns the IKI KravMaga concepts, and not to mention, the cost of the training can not be beat!!
Manual Garcia, California, US
So nice of you to find kind words for everyone in the group.
Well, only you can judge how the atmosphere in earlier Tour and Train groups was, but from my perspective I also experienced a good spirit and camaraderie. As a new beginner I felt unsure if I would be accepted – and then I felt so soon integrated and respected by everyone. A lot of this nice atmosphere is owed to yourself – due to your warmhearted way of teaching and treating people. A big thank you as well!
I am looking forward to the next training with you, hopefully in the next Tour and Train, but at least in December in Germany.
Beate (Germany, Class June 2013)
In November 2013 we took part in Moshe Katz’s „Tour and Train”. Since we are 50 respectively 59 years, we were reluctant to book the tour at all, since we had already mixed experiences of Krav Maga in Germany. But what we got was exactly how Moshe predicted in his emails before: “Everyone trains on his own pace and intensity”. We got away with NO injuries, even NO sore muscles and almost no bruises but with substantial and complex insights into various self-defense techniques, comprising hand to hand, ground fight, REAL knife defense (evasion) and none the less a big portion of gun-disarming. – So far pragmatic aspects!
Even more impressive and moving was the insight Moshe granted into the mentality and mind set behind Krav Maga and his very personal feelings and emotions. Very probably it takes to be mature up to a certain degree to fully understand, what Moshe tried to come across with, but in our case he entirely succeeded in, sometimes without any word vocalized! A unique experience, we never forget.
A relationship between two nations or two peoples such burdened as the one between Israel and Germany is unique in history. Provided this, we were always very sensitive about reactions, when Moshe introduced our group to Israelis, and where members are coming from. In NO case we sensed negative emotions, when Germany was mentioned. It is quite the opposite: We never forget this moment, when a six-day-war veteran chooses Norbert as the only male German to pose arm in arm for a group photo at ammunition hill. And he even showed his pride of his German roots.
Yad Vashem: Given the historical fact, in each and every language it is impossible to find the appropriate words, but we try to: In Germany even after about 80 years, people are very reluctant to talk about the holocaust. The word “embarrassed” does by far not provide the appropriate reach, what we feel. Germans avoid to mentioning, that since thousands of years Jews had been deprived from privileges, hunted, expelled, humiliated, even killed, and that while 2nd world war many Germans granted shelter and helped Jews to escape Nazi prosecution. If this was mentioned by Germans it always sounds like a cheap excuse. But Israelis do! And they emphasize, that everything is confirmed and proved. – What a great gesture!
Thank you Moshe, for a unique journey through our history.

Erfahrungsbericht zu „Tour and Train 2013“ Krav Maga in Israel,
I’m a man of few words but T&T for me has been the most incredible experience of my martial arts career.
Krav Maga is the perfect system for imperfect people. It’s effective, easy to learn and you don’t have to be a super athletic guy to learn it. Everybody can learn and master this effective style of combat regardless of anything.
But it’s not just learning Krav Maga, it’s understanding the cultural aspects of the Israeli people that you really understand how and why the system works.
That’s why Tour and Train is the perfect tool to internalize the system and make it yours.

I have already contacted BMA to find out how to submit one. please find below my review. (feel free to remove names if you or Esther would rather be anonymous)
I came to IKI Tour and train as my first visit to Israel so I was as interested in the Krav Maga training as much as the touring and activities that Moshe had planned, I consider myself to be extremely selective and hard to impress but Moshe far exceeded the expectations I had which I set very high, not only was everyday jam packed with training and well organised activities but the professionalism and welcoming atmosphere that Moshe and his assistant Esther provide made this tour an amazing experience.
Moshe has a wealth of knowledge and experiences in Israel that he openly shares with all participants and makes you feel like part of a family within an extremely short time. Esther his assistant is also amazing and made the experience even more enjoyable with her friendly demeanour and wealth of knowledge and experience in Krav Maga and Israel and both became friends very quickly, both of them show genuine concern and care for participants and go above and beyond to ensure all gain experience whilst they are there as well as ensuring that the experience is enjoyable to all.
The opportunity to train with locals is also a very enjoyable experience with some very friendly and talented Krav Maga practitioners training with Moshe who are more than happy to assist and train with visitors.
I cannot recommend this program enough whether you have been to Israel or not this is an experience that you will not forget, I will definitely be back and can’t wait to see Esther and Moshe again.
Unique Krav Approach, Blending with Counter Terrorism Training
Dear Esther and Moshe,
I would like to take this opportunity to extend my big thanks for another amazing IKI Tour & Train experience, so carefully prepared and organized project so that each of us participants coming from around the world would feel good during every moment spent in Israel and with its people.
And brief feedback on training:
IKI training again proved to be unique in its approach – techniques effective, easy to learn, and always ‘fine tuned’, improved. The best part is when Moshe would explain a logic behind some technique by saying ‘Why?’ (why it works in a way it works?) and then 30+ years of substantial experience in martial arts speaks out explaining in very clear language to every person around why is it so and what is advantage against complex moves and numerous techniques in other martial arts/stiles in Krav Maga. I wonder who, of all others and known to be ‘the best’ in the world can do it the way Moshe does. Most importantly, which made profound impression on me is notion how honorable foundations were laid in creation of IKI and objectives set for the future by making IKI Krav Maga accessible to as many people as possible, to enable people to defend themselves regardless on their age or physical abilities and also among them recruit those that will further promote IKI style and values by becoming committed instructors.
Special benefit for each IKI student is offered in form of additional training in counter terrorism and VIP protection where world class operatives trained us in combat/weapons/security protocols that only Israeli specialists developed and today deliver to their counterparts from around the world. This merge was surely special bonus and I myself as a security professional found it extremely useful and most of all I feel ready to respond should critical situation would dictate so. I am immensely grateful for every minute spent with such outstanding, and I repeat again, world class specialists.
I wish many more successful Tour & Train events in future, happy students from around the world to enjoy unique Krav Maga training with IKI and I give my personal assurance that I will come back even if it means being under fire – at least I will stand together with wonderful people of Israel and share fate with them.
With fondest regards, till next Tour & Train,
I had a great time with your IKI training, really enjoyed it and for a complete novice, I felt comfortable with your training and pace of training. It was a great group of people, all really helpful and patient with me. Also your local pupils where all really friendly with a relaxed and happy helpful method of assisting and training a real pleasure!

Krav Maga Tour & Train has been a tremendous experience. Moshe and Esther have given us a very full two weeks. Everyone has learned and grown a great deal with every opportunity that we have been given. We have been exposed to the depths of history, war, and religion here in Israel. I have gained more in this two week period than I could have in an entire semester of schooling on these subjects. Moshe is knowledgeable and passionate about both the places we have toured as well as the Krav Maga training that he provides. This has made every day fun and enlightening. In the past I found what I heard on the news about this region of the world to be confusing and extremely difficult to understand; however, with this outstanding experience, I am going home empowered. I now have a much better understanding of what is going on here politically and religiously. I have an increased understanding and deep respect for the history that has taken place here. Our group is of different backgrounds, ages, gender, and religions, but with Moshe’s genuine example, everyone has worked well together. Life-long friendships have been made. IKI Tour & Train has been a fantastic experience. We hope to return in the future.
