Pure Krav Maga - Advanced Training / by Boaz Aviram, Founder


Various types of students come to learn Pure Krav Maga. Most of them have some interest in learning and honing their self defense skills. Pure Krav Maga is conducted as Intensive Seminars, and also as weekly training sessions which basically teach selected topics of Pure Krav Maga. 

This puts a responsibility on Students and Instructors to sort out and find what they need to attend to complete their mission. Their mission could have a time constraint as well or time span or schedule limit. 

This could be the same problem the instructor might have. While bona fide exchange of information and explanation of how many hours and what topics should be covered is helpful for both parties to understand their needs, the question that comes to our minds is how much information should be communicated in the explanation and the persuasion process. 

After all if you teach before you get paid, you will probably never get paid for it. So in reality you need to have a logical plan that you can communicate and support with logic with your potential students, but in reality you do not want to teach them for free. 

Many students think they have learned enough or trained enough and you need to either reaffirm that or dispute it or reaffirm that they indeed learned so many things and if would be helpful for them, but if they learn more they will be able to handle more. 

What I mean is, how do you communicate with your student the necessity of what you teach to benefit the student at each level without teaching him before you get paid. 


Payment is first, because once the knowledge leaves your hand it belongs to your student and payment is customarily with transfer of possessions.  In addition, publicity of too much detailed curriculum can be stolen by other wannabe instructors and used for their benefits for free.

At the end of the day you should as an instructor ask yourself as well, how much did you learn and is there more knowledge out there. You might have been trained under the constraint of time, and purpose yourself. Even today, 

I see that Pure Krav Maga is much more advanced than any other training system in the world when it comes to self defense. So whatever time you spend on training with Pure Krav Maga, be assured you are getting more that 10 times than time spent with any other training system and in only a fraction of the time... 

Truth is that most Krav Maga Instructors that were civilians or ex military soldiers that did not serve as a Chief Instructor in the Israeli Defense Forces Fighting Fitness Academy, took a fracture  of Krav Maga and divided it to tenth of a fracture and started selling it to their students as beginners and advanced.  But there were others that chose to just use the name Krav Maga.  For those, they mastery of jujitsu in its best never got them even close to develop Krav Maga basics.

As the last thirty year debate of whether Krav Maga could be evolved or not, the no answer was really cynical because it was referring to all the people that were re inventing and redeveloping it where they were not even aware of the basic principles of it. 

But for someone that was well familiar with Imrich's Principles, there is always a possibility that they would be distilled and applied much further and in a very significant and unique way, as some of the unseen scientific phenomena was discovered by pure mathematical formula.  


Think of Pure Krav Maga as Robotics. Developing an able robot that can do the job but applying the mechanics to ancient ones - the Human Body... But instead of the robot on the assembly line, the idea is to program the human to respond and prevail against any other human...


As I discovered that Imrich's principles could be distilled to a more specific application of his techniques, my spirit was down because I felt I neglected to provide my students to date an adequate level of proficiency including my recent discovery.  But when I thought it over, I realized that I already gave my students more than my Krav Maga Founding fathers had given me, and it is much more  than anyone else would have gotten elsewhere to my humble opinion so that did comfort my conscience.  

Advanced Pure Krav Maga Training is planned, and it is not just a technique, but serious distinguished new training methods and applications of Principles and Techniques in a unique imaginative way that works.
