He then becomes chief of Fighting Fitness and Hand-to-Hand combat in the Israel Defense Force, which originally consisted of intensive use of a knife training and other H2H close scenarios.
There he develops his system of a Genius - Krav Maga! He then decides to keep it as an IDF secret, but also exporting it to the civilian market having a "unique combination..."
The original idea was to develop counter techniques against all the martial arts and fighting sports...Therefore ,Chinese Kung Fu, Aiki-Jujitsu, and Aikido were considered as well. Their techniques were evaluated, and few extracted, modified and adopted for the purpose of training. In fact many experts of Jujitsu, and other Aiki Jujitsu, Kung Fu, etc., are unable to recognize these techniques as they were modified in Pure Krav Maga.
What are the essence of his developed system in the IDF, and how he gave it to the civilian public, yet leaving the original Krav Maga an IDF Secret, which at some point even escaped the IDF?
