INTERNATIONAL KRAV MAGA FEDERATION - UNITED STATES
IKMF Military Program
That man was Imi Lichtenfeld. Imi had to provide solutions for obstacles and difficulties that a soldier might face in the battle field, such as rope climbing with weight, landing safely from a high jump, taking down an enemy guard and using the rifle as a cold weapon (when you can't or would rather refrain from firing).
Krav Maga was originally developed for the military; therefore, it had to accommodate its needs: it had to be taught to anyone and in a short period. Because of this, the techniques and the way of teaching are an integral part of the system: they cannot be separated. A soldier is warrior, i.e. a tool to be used by a country for its protection, to preserve the wellbeing and normal way of life of its population and to protect the country's interests.
