Krav MagA Israel training camp

Israeli Krav International (IKI) offers an intensive but user friendly Krav Maga course suitable for all levels.

We find that a blend of advanced practitioners including high level instructors, with beginners as well as students from other styles, helps to develop a unique program. Each participant develops at their own rate and their pace. There is a good teacher - student ration and a lot of individual attention.

Personal Approach

We take a personal approach and each participant is seen as an individual with their own needs. We address those needs.

While the program is in English we can manage with French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, German and Dutch, and of course Hebrew.

How Long is the Course? 

Tour and Train Israel Experience 

The basic course is ten full days however it is actually a little bit longer plus there are options for extensions.

Our first official day of training is a Monday morning and we continue through Friday afternoon. We break on Friday afternoon for the Sabbath.

The Sabbath/Shabbat/Saturday is a day where you can either hang out at your place and rest or join us for religious services, or just join us for a group lunch in the Sabbath spirit.

  • Saturday night we have additional optional training. As such this is brings us to 11 days of training.
  • The Sunday before our official start is an Orientation Day. We expect you to arrive by this Sunday at the latest. On Sunday you will check into your rooms, meet your hosts, and settle in. We will take you shopping for food. We will take you to a fair money changing place and we will help you in any way that is necessary.
  • Sunday night we have our regular Krav Maga lesson with our local group and you are invited to join us for that. Thus you already have another additional training session.
  • "Day 11" is the Friday after the conclusion of Tour and Train. This is a day where for those interested we visit the Counter Terrorism base and a full day of training. There is also a possibility for "Day 12" which would be Sunday. That would be a VIP Personal Protection Course. Both these courses involved additional fees. (see below for links)
  • There is also the option of arriving early for extra training, or extending your trip and staying later.

The choice of housing is up to you, but we can help you. Prices for Hotels or a bed and breakfast in Jerusalem can run from a few dollars per night to hundreds.

I feel it is best to stay in Maaleh Adumim. We do not have any hotels but there are very nice rooms an units for rent ranging from about $20 per night to about $50 a night.

Once you register for the program we contact you and arrange all the details and find accommodations that suit your needs.

Food here is rather inexpensive, unless you choose to dine in fancy touristy restaurants.

Smoke free environment:

IKI is a smoke free environment. Our hosts have made it clear that no smoking is allowed on their premises. If you are a smoker please refrain while you are here, or find a place far away so that it does not affect others.

No smoking during the tours or during the training.


This is a Sabbath observing community. As such we ask you to respect the feelings and the guidelines of the community. Thus on Saturday there is no playing of loud music, no vehicles, no smoking etc.

Our community is a traditional Jewish one. You will feel very welcome here. Please try your best to fit in and respect the community and they will treat you the same. Those who wish may spend Saturday on their own. Some participants chose to go to Tel Aviv, the beach, or to visit friends, the choice is yours.
