Richard Maus, Gold Coast

Richard came to Israel for an intensive two week, one on one program. He also participated in the group classes as well as training with at Itay's in Jerusalem. A conditioned athlete with already substantial experience, he was able to quickly pick up and appreciate our IKI Krav style.

He has qualified as a Junior IKI Instructor and already helped me teach a class in Jerusalem. I was impressed with his ability to dissect the techniques and explain them to others.

Richard returned to Israel for another session of intensive training. I was pleased to see that he had used his time away well and was training in IKI Krav Maga, as well as teaching others. I am proud to promote him to Blue belt.

Richard also completed, most successfully, the basic hand gun training.

Assistant Instructor

Pat Honan, Head Instructor of Krav Australia teaches Israeli Krav International Krav Maga, based in Israel. Pat traveled twice to Israel for intensive training with Moshe Katz CEO and Founder of IKI.

Pat says:

I own and operate a security company based in Alice Springs, Northern Territory, Australia. I have owned this company for 9 years and have built up an amazing team of dedicated men committed to their job of public security. We deal with dangerous situations every day, and due to the necessity of our locational needs we mostly deal in crowd control, anti-social behavior, asset protection of our clients and event management.

We also have a successful dog unit who are an integral part of our team, we employ our loyal dogs for most of these situations. I am very proud of my dogs who have selflessly endangered their lives daily.

I have been involved in martial arts since I was 11 years old, and I have spent my years since then committed to the safety and security of the public. I worked for many years in high risk security jobs, both off shore and at sea.

Rebeka Smith, Perth

Apprentice instructor

Rebekah Smith. 21 years old with 8 years of mixed martial arts experience from kickboxing, Brazilian jujitsu and Mau Thai. I have also been thoroughly trained in the Australian military self defense style. However I still did not feel like I has found something that i could use in every day life and my work in the military. I heard of Krav Maga and started training 2 years ago and took very quickly to the style. I enjoy the real world aspects and feel as though i have gained some self confidence with knowing how get myself out of situations that unfortunately are common in my line of work. With in the last 6 months I have had to apply different Krav Maga techniques to dangerous situation i was in. Not only did I stay calm and controlled but was quick to apply the techniques and over come my opponent. I enjoy IKI's style of Krav and I am looking forward to pushing myself as an instructor.
