Because Krav Maga system is based on powerful counterattacks, striking is an essential part of Krav Maga training. Therefore practicing your strikes over and over again is the best way to stay at the top of your game.
I just return from the KMG Expert Camp in Israel at Hagosherim (near the border of Syria and Lebanon). All together about 60 Krav Maga experts from all over the world came there to train under Master Eyal Yanilov and his Expert team. Wonderful time, training 8 to 9 hours per day during 8 days with the best Krav Maga experts in the world. Looking forward for the next camp in Israel.

Wonderful time this evening celebrating new year (a bit late) with a great group of KMG Japan members. It is great to have created this international group of friends! Krav Maga is a fighting system but at KMG it’s also an instrument of peace between people from all over the world 🌎! Thank you everyone for training with us and supporting KMG Japan 😊! Happy New Year 🥳
Today about 20 KMG Japan students had their P1 and P2 test (1st and 2nd level) in Tokyo. The test was 3h30 minutes long during that time students had to demonstrate their knowledge and skill to execute the techniques of P1 or P2 level.
Passing grades is very important to progress in Krav Maga, because it forces students to memorize the technics and practice them as well as they can in order to pass their test.
In Krav Maga (KMG) we have 5 degrees in Practitioner Level (P1 to P5), 5 degrees in Graduate Level (G1 to G5) and 5 degrees in Expert Level (E1 to E5). the next level after E5 is Master. It takes about 3 years of regular training to reach G1 and about 3 to 4 more years to reach E1. So after 7 years of regular training and dedication to Krav Maga one can become Krav Maga Expert. It is a journey sometime hard but very rewarding.
Krav Maga is a way of life.
Sunday Dec. 2, we conducted the Hostage Situation Seminar in Tokyo. The idea of this seminar was to give participants a little understanding about what can be done technically and tactically is such situation and, of course, to have good time while learning some useful stuff. The Seminar was conducted by Edwin Peng who is a military Krav Maga specialist from KMG. It was a very exiting seminar with a lot of action and everybody had a lot of fun. Thank you to all the participants!
