International Krav Maga Federation -

The world's leading Krav Maga organisation.



What is


Krav Maga, Hebrew for Contact Combat, is the highly effective Israeli system of self-defence and fighting skills and has been saving lives on battlefields and hostile streets since 1948.

Created by Imi Lichtenfeld, Krav Maga is based on real world situations and is a practical system that is logical, is easy to learn and is highly effective – it is a system that is available to everyone from small children to the elderly, from office workers to professional soldiers!

Start your journey with the IKMF today and give yourself the skills to look after you and your loved ones, so you “may walk in peace.”

IKMF Krav Maga is not a Martial Art, we don't train for sport fighting. We train for real world situations and give you the most advanced and up-to date solutions to potentially dangerous situations. Krav Maga is a science based self defence system that gives you the best training possible.

IKMF Krav Maga is suitable for everyone regardless of age, physical ability or experience.
