Protect Krav Maga is based on thousands of real life-violent confrontations, Israeli close-quarters hand-to-hand combat techniques tested and refined while serving in Israel’s elite counter-terrorism unit Yamam.
Protect Krav Maga is beautiful in its simplicity and goal-oriented way. Techniques are highly adaptable, easy to retain, and extremely effective.
We do not decide what Krav Maga is or isn’t, imi was intelligent enough to know that. The threats from the world we live in are the one and only decision-maker. We can only do what Imi did, adapt and evolve, and try to be better, in every way, all the time.
Instead of teaching overly complicated movements in sterile laboratory conditions we at Protect test everything under pressure to ensure the student understands the value of determination, while at the same time teaching the mindset and ability to survive in stressful, dangerous and violent situations even in states of extreme duress, injury or exhaustion.
We are Protect, the world’s most battle and reality tested Krav Maga and we specialize in performance under pressure and human behavior.
Why Protect Krav Maga
THE YEAR KRAV MAGA
The year is 1987
Returning from a high risk operation “catch, snatch & detain” in a hostile environment, teammates injured but all alive...we were lucky.
Never again sighed Itay Gil!!!
Analysing with his team mates it was decided adopting new changes in close combat drills where required.
Itay already had a group of followers that trained with him late at night & liked his approach in training. Over the coming weeks word spread rapidly about his late night training sessions. Classes continued to grow in popularity & finally drew the attention of the base commander Ron. One night in the twilight hours he turned up unannounced to one of Itay’s late night training session. He observed took notes and left after a short period.
The following morning over the base tannoy Itay Gil was called to the head office. In fact Itay was assuming he was in trouble as it’s very rare you get to see the base commander, if at all.
General Ron was intreagued by Itay's training methods & in particular asked what the difference was from the current Krav Maga being taught on base. After explaining the theory Commander Ron asked if Itay could give him a private lesson, he smiled and said you do understand I'll have to kick your ass with a smile and the appointment was made
The supposedly 30 minute demonstration lasted all morning & shortly after completion, Itay was promoted to head of close combat for the counter terror warfare team with immediate effect.
Itay continued to train the unit for many years & other classified agencies.
The rest is history.
