Krav Maga Force Training Division: As the official defensive tactics system of the Israeli Defense Forces, the Israeli National and Military Police, and Israeli Special Operations and Security units, Krav Maga has been tested in every law enforcement and military environment, from front lines to back streets, from prisoner transport to “take no prisoners.” The Krav Maga Force Training Division (KMFTD) has taken important steps to refine Krav Maga for the needs of American law enforcement. Keenly aware of use-of-force issues facing law enforcement, KMFTD gathered top authorities in the use-of-force field, including: deputy district attorneys, police liability defense lawyers, police administrators, top defensive tactics instructors. In particular, the U.S. Chief Instructor, Darren Levine, is a Deputy District Attorney for Los Angeles County. He lectures frequently on use-of-force issues. This team established a defensive tactics system that protects law enforcement officers from harm and law enforcement agencies from liability.
The Krav Maga system has received international recognition as an innovative and highly practical defensive tactics system ideally suited for law enforcement. We have trained over 400 agencies in the United States.
Krav Maga emerged in an environment where extreme violence, mostly of a political nature, was common. It has had ample opportunity to be tested and improved under real-life conditions. No defensive tactics system in the world is more street and battle-tested than Krav Maga.
