IKI Logo, Rules and Regulations
Logos – Rules and Regulations from the IKI Board of Directors (BOD)
To IKI Instructors and members :
It is manifestly declared that Krav Maga was developed and propagated expressly for and by the people of Israel and for the select few outside of Israel that are entrusted with the knowledge of authentic Israeli Krav Maga . IKI Krav Maga is unique and constantly being updated. IKI Krav Maga reserves the right to accept or deny continuing membership or recognition of rank to any member that does not follow IKI/BOD policy. In return for IKI recognition, linage and rank recognition in Israel the member is expected to follow all rules and regulation which includes maintaining up to date certificates of membership and rank issued solely by the IKI Israel.
It is extremely important that members be recognized directly from Israel. Furthermore they should instruct their members/students on the importance of direct affiliation and linage from Israel.
There is only one way for the instructor to be able to trace his/her linage directly to Israel and that is to have a certificate/patch/banner/shirt manufactured, authorized and signed in Israel by the IKI. Any and all certificates/shirts/diplomas/patches manufactured outside of Israel and not recognized by IKI are considered invalid, and represent a violation of the IKI code of conduct. This action is initiated by the IKI BOD and approved for the operation of any and all IKI affiliates worldwide.
IKI logos are controlled ONLY by IKI. No member has the right to produce merchandise with the IKI logo. (and name?)
No person is ‘recognized’ by the IKI unless they possess an official current IKI certificate of membership signed in Israel.
The chain of command is first God, then Israel, then the IKI/BOD, then Moshe Katz, then the instructors and then the students.
It is important that everyone understands the chain of command and follows procedures, no exceptions.
By order of the BOD for IKI.
