I just wanted to thank you for night's training session. I truly enjoyed your methods, as well as your stories and jokes. Your techniques are very "real life" effective. Like your bumper sticker will say, "Perfect techniques for the imperfect person."
I feel honored to have met you and hope that one day our paths will cross again.
You are one of the good ones.
Thanks again - Michele (the Italian)

Testimonials for Moshe Katz Krav Maga instructor
Seminar Deposit $350 (plus PayPal fee)
Full Seminar Payment $750 (plus PayPal fee)
Balance Seminar Payment $400 (plus PayPal fee)
This plus deposit is full payment for seminar.
In the event of cancellation the seminar deposit is non-refundable.
For seminar fees and details please contact the IKI office. (Contact form below).
For locations outside the USA/Canada (i.e. the North America trip).
Expenses are: Seminar fee. Round trip airfare, taxi to and from airport in Israel, airport pickup and drop off abroad. Food and hotel.
For flights leaving Israel Moshe flies El Al Israel Airlines. (unless someplace like Kazakhstan where El Al does not yet fly.) Connecting flights can be with any airline other than Arab airlines. (for obvious reasons).
All flight expenses must be incurred by hosts including unexpected costs as may arise from time to time.
Once a flight has been booked there can be no cancellation. Cancelling a seminar incurs the full cost of the seminar, hotel and food expenses. i.e. If a seminar is booked within the USA, Canada, or Mexico, which is part of a tour, cancelling an event has a domino effect. If event B is cancelled, I still must be there to catch the flight to event C. Thus a cancellation incurs ALL costs incurred as a result of the cancellation of the seminar.
Cancellation Policy for all other seminars:
In the event of a cancellation the flight money is forfeited and 50% of the seminar fee must be paid.
For flights leaving and arriving in Israel Moshe flies El Al Israel Airlines. (unless someplace like Kazakhstan where El Al does not yet fly.) Connecting flights can be with any airline other than Arab airlines. (for obvious reasons)
Procedure, once we set a date for a seminar I will look into a flight. We agree on flight details and cost. Two options for payment.
1. My agent at El Al contacts you directly and you pay him via credit card.
2. I send you an invoice for the flight and I book it here in Israel.
This way if there are problems, as there have been many times in the past (volcanic ash, contaminated petrol, storms, snow, war) I have one individual whom I can contact rather than go on a wild goose chase trying to contact an airline. Trust me, I know what I am talking about. With other airlines I have found myself stranded in a foreign country trying to explain myself in Spanish in the middle of the night, or in German while panicking that I will not make my connection. I have stuck at the airport without internet, without a working international phone, surrounded by Chinese speakers, Italian speakers trying to reach someone. Trust me, do not argue with me on this point. I book my own flights.
There can be no compromise when it comes to my safety.
Flights within USA, Canada, Puerto Rico, Mexico:
When on tour within North America there can be as many as 20 flights or more.
Policy regarding booking flights:
1. Never take the initiative to book the flight on your own. These flights must be booked together, me and the host, in order to find the best flight that suits our needs.
For your sake I try to choose the least expensive flight.
For my sake I try to choose a flight without three connections.
For your sake I try not to choose a flight that involves you waking up at 3 am and driving 2 hours.
For my sake I try to choose a flight where I can get a decent night sleep. Thus we must speak and chose the best flight together.
2. No seminar is considered booked until the flight is booked and paid for. Without a booked flight I have no guarantee the host will not change his mind at the last minute.
3. Flights must be booked and paid for well advance -When I ask for them to be booked.
If you do not have the money to book a flight a few months in advance, you should not be hosting a seminar. Understand that this is a domino effect; I only book flight number 3 on a tour after flight number 2 is booked. For example if I am flying New York - Chicago - Los Angeles, I will only book Chicago - Los Angeles after I have booked New York - Chicago because if Chicago cancels then my Chicago - Los Angeles flight is lost!
4. Travel Protection: In the past I never insisted on "Travel protection", it is another $15- $20 but I figured why waste the money. These days with cancellations due to weather, storms, and other technical difficulties I feel it is necessary. So be prepared to pay another few dollars. Better this way than losing the entire cost of the flight, which has happened too many times.
Hotel, food, coffee, will be paid for and arranged by the host.
Hotels should be Best Western quality or better, not "Super 8" , or "Americas Best".
All hotels should be clean, smoke free, safe, and include a quality breakfast and WiFi.
If there is free time please understand that these trips are very tiring. I am quite happy relaxing in the hotel before the seminar. I do not need to be "entertained" and shown the sights of the town. Please understand that I am coming to teach Krav Maga, not as a tourist. It is more important to me to be well rested and prepared for the seminar than to see the historic sights of the town.
The basic standard format is to begin...at the beginning. We start with the basics, the foundations and progress from there.
Seminars can be tailored to the needs of the group; young, older, police, military, office workers, airlines etc.

I just wanted to let you know that I cannot thank you enough for your visit. It was therapeutic for me in a number of ways. It was GREAT seeing so many students in there, all learning and getting excited about Krav Maga. We love what you bring to your seminars. Your passion for teaching people to learn to defend themselves matches our, and I see good things coming from that!
This world is getting scarier every day, and I feel great about myself knowing that I teach people how to defend their lives. I'm excited about continuously learning from you. You are an awesome mentor in many ways.
Thank you so much,
I have been through 2 of Moshe's seminars and WILL be at this this one. Moshe is a fabulous teacher who makes everything so easy to learn.
