For Holly

March 26, 2024, Israel

She was a beautiful young woman, only 20 years old, she had her whole life ahead of her, it was going to be a life devoted to helping others. She was studying to be a nurse, she wanted to make a difference in the world, she wanted to help others. But it was not to be. Her life was tragically cut short by evildoers, by the scum of the earth, by human trash. Prison is too good for such people.

She was on her way to school when she was met by these low lives. Apparently she struggled, it is not clear how many men there where, but she was raped repeatedly and beaten. Thinking she was dead they took her body to the woods, when she moved and showed signs of life, they shot her in the head. 

There are many such stories, and each is tragic. And yet, each and every one is important. I learn of these stories, I study the details and I try to improve our training. We need to reach these girls, we need to train them. That is the point of these blogs, to reach more people, to gain more instructors who can make a difference.

Please stop teaching this stuff, you are harming people.

I am not here to criticize other systems, but I do. I look at them, they are often built on ego. The instructors themselves are bullies, acting all Bad Ass and Macho, rather than trying to nurture the students. And then there are styles that are "Martial Arts", the techniques may look cool, but they take too long to learn, are too complicated to actually perform under pressure, and I think of Holly. Her life was not devoted to martial arts. She did not dream of winning an MMA championship. She did not do cross fit, and it is for her that we must design our system. When we develop our techniques, we need to think of Holly, and those like her; regular people who are not ever going to commit to longterm training and earning black belt status. That is what IKI Krav Maga is all about, and that is why we are different. I look at the other styles and I think, Oh C'mon! You don't really expect that to work for a slim 20-year-old girl against some big guys, C'mon, who are you trying to fool! Please stop teaching this stuff, you are harming people.  

I think of Holly and that is why all our techniques must meet these criteria: Easy to learn, Easy to apply in diverse situations, Easy to remember. 

All our techniques rely on understanding concepts, not on memorizing moves. All our techniques rely on Gross Motor Moves, not precision martial arts. All our techniques involve using your entire body - Body Movement, not Rapid Hand Movement, all our techniques are designed to use stress to your advantage. 

For the sake of your families, for the sake of your future, join us. You can no longer make a difference once you are dead. Sadly, the good ones die, and the scum live on.
