instructors page

The idea of this page is to provide IKI Krav Maga instructors and Kickboxing Instructors with easy access to information they need without having to search all over the IKI website.

General Information 

For general information for instructors in terms of our policies, please see Certification page. Please study theis page carefully so we can avoid unpleasant misunderstandings.

Too often members make assumptions which are not correct, such as: 

  • My black belt from anther style gives me an automatic identical rank with IKI.
  • Being an instructor automatically gives me the right to teach seminars, i.e. accept invitations to teach seminars under the IKI banner. 
  • I have a right to Promote my students to any rank I want without approval from IKI. I can leave IKI, declare my self a grand master and list IKI as a reference. 
  • I can leave IKI and still claim an IKI Black Belt indefinitely. 

None of these assumptions is correct. Please refer to the IKI Certification page for the correct information. 

IKI Logo

You may use the IKI logo to promote your school/business.   

we request that you display the IKI logo in your school and on your website. 

Be proud to be part of IKI. Let your students know you are teaching IKI Krav Maga. 

Rules for Instructors

The IKI logo is for the benefit of all IKI instructors but there are some rules we need to make clear. 

You May 

Print banners and business cards with the IKI logo.

Print stationary with the IKI logo.

Print invoices with the IKI logo.

Use the IKI logo for your website.  

Use the IKI logo for advertisement. 

Use the IKI logo your school, signs, billboards.

Use the IKI logo on student attendance certificates when Moshe Katz is invited to teach a seminars.

You may print special items for Moshe Katz's seminars. Please consult with us first. 

You May NOT

Print T shirts or other merchandise using the IKI Logo unless you have arranged this with the IKI administration - Head office (for a fee) 

Print diplomas or any certificates using the IKI logo. (other than for IKI seminars hosting Moshe Katz or with special approval of the IKI Head Office. 

Issue any ranks without the approval of Moshe Katz (each instructor level is entitled to promote up to a certain level). 

IKI logo on flyers 

Please do not place the IKI logo next to the logo of another international Krav Maga association unless you have received specific permission to do so from the IKI head office. 

i.e. You can and should place the IKI logo next to your own personal school logo (if you have one), but not next to some other international Krav Maga association's logo as this would imply IKI endorsement and thus create total confusion. When in doubt contact Moshe Katz directly. Each of you have a direct connection without intermediaries.  

Possible exceptions: Major martial arts events sponsored by several Krav Maga associations, this would make sense. 

Explanation: IKI has its own unique program and approach to Krav Maga self defense. If you have some  connection to some other Krav Maga organization (perhaps past ranks etc) and place both  logos on your flyers; this creates confusion. People will look and think, I guess IKI and IKWME (fictitious name) are the similar! I guess the techniques are all basically the same, I guess all Krav Maga styles are essentially the same thing.

However this is not true. IKI is different. Our goal at IKI is to establish the fact that we are different from all other Krav Maga associations.
