The History of Krav Maga
The art of Krav Maga was founded by Imi Lichtenfeld (Sde-Or).
Imi was born in Bratislava to a renowned police officer and circus acrobat. As a child, Imi excelled in various sports such as wrestling and boxing and practiced several martial arts. When antisemite riots began to spread through his home town Imi and his family were forced to immigrate to Israel (Palestine at the time).
In 1948, Once Israel had declared its independence, IDF's (Israeli Defense Force) officials approached Imi and requested him to develop a system of self-defense and fighting based upon his experience and his work with special forces units as the 'Hagana', 'Palmach' and 'Palyam'.
During his 20 years of service as chief instructor of hand-to-hand combat, Imi carefully refined the methods of Krav Maga, making it the official combative training for all military personnel, Israeli police, and security forces. Imi developed a doctrine enabling both fit and out-of-shape soldiers to practice it successfully. Rather than rigid movements and techniques requiring years of training Krav Maga integrated instinctive and simple moves.
