Tactical World - - Buyer's Guide -

Not all Krav Maga in­struc­tors are the real deal. When choos­ing a place to train, make sure you do some re­search. Find out if the in­struc­tor is a black belt and from whom he got his train­ing. Seek out some­one who has trained with Imi or one of his se­nior in­struc­tors. The closer you get to the source, the bet­ter you will be.

Be aware ev­ery­one who lives in Is­rael as an adult has served in the IDF and has re­ceived some level of Krav Maga train­ing. This does not make them an in­struc­tor. Even though they were tasked with teach­ing in the army does not mean that they are a full black belt in­struc­tor. You want to make sure your in­struc­tor is an ex­pert in the en­tire sys­tem, not just pieces of it.

It takes any­where from 5 to 7 years to reach black belt level and even more time and train­ing to be con­sid­ered a black belt in­struc­tor. If you live in the Los Angeles area, come visit us.
