Training in Israel

Come and Tour and Train in Israel with us. We are based in Israel, our homeland, in the lovely town of Maaleh Adumim , just outside Jerusalem. This is our Israeli headquarters where we have been training students from all over the world since 1993.

Our adult Tour and Train in Israel program is cutting edge Krav Maga. Students, instructors, and law enforcement come from all over the world to learn Krav Maga, upgrade their skills or see what has recently developed. They come with questions and they contribute their own experience. Sometimes a question will lead to an evolution of an existing technique or the development of a new one.
Our Krav Maga is fluid, always attempting to meet the demands of an ever changing world. Our students are helping people all over the world, empowering others and giving them tools with which to defend themselves. In addition to our special programs we offer weekly classes, in English. The group is comprised of our local students and visiting students.

About the Touring:

Our Touring is not “site seeing” as in what a tourist would see. Moshe Katz leads most of the tours personally and integrates that experience with the training. The tours are “Moreshet Krav” – The Heritage of Combat”, you will not be sunbathing on the Tel Aviv beach.

The tours are part of your training, just as all IDF (Israel Defense Forces)  recruits must complete these very same tours so shall you. The tours are the spirit of Krav Maga, the heritage, this is essential for understanding Krav Maga. You will be walking in the footsteps of warriors and learning their story.\

Smoke Free Environment:

IKI is a smoke free environment. Our hosts have made it clear that no smoking is allowed on their premises. (this includes backyard, balcony etc) If you are a smoker please refrain while you are here, or find a place far away so that it does not affect others.

No smoking during the tours or during the training.

Sometimes smokers think that if they step to the side, smoke, and return, that on one will be disturbed. This is not the case. Over and over again non-smokers have said they do not want to train or be near anyone who has smoked a cigarette, the stench stays with the person.

Leave your cigarettes at home!


This is a Sabbath observing community. As such we ask you to respect the feelings and the guidelines of the community. Thus on Saturday there is no playing of loud music, no vehicles, no smoking etc.

Our community is a traditional Jewish one. You will feel very welcome here. Please try your best to fit in and respect the community and they will treat you the same. Those who wish may spend Saturday on their own. Some participants chose to go to Tel Aviv, the beach, or to visit friends, the choice is yours.
