About the preparatory training program

  • This is an extensive practical training program developed by The International Security Academy -Israel, based on real Israeli expertise, concepts, and methods to strengthen people when coping with high pressure situations. It involves self-empowerment and team-empowerment.
  • Israel is continually under the threat of terrorist attacks from within and from outside the country, therefore the Israeli population has been trained and given the ability to over- come unexpected attacks and to adapt to high threat situations of extreme violence.
  • We give priority to the qualifications and involvement of our entire population in the struggle against violent crime or terrorism. We do not consider it only a law enforcement concern.
  • Our experience dictates that a person in a stronger mental and physical condition feels more self-confident and functions and copes much better with high stress situations resulting from crises and violence.
  • We realized that self-confidence improves the participant’s character and behavior in their family, their awareness and desire to contribute, to be more involved and to influence the quality of life of the entire society. The lack of self-confidence turns people into aggressors or potential victims, who look and behave accordingly.

“Students must be taught how to think, not what to think.”

  • The various analyses together with the vast experience accumulated in Israel and throughout the world have led to an unequivocal conclusion:

* To improve our ability to understand and operate under emotional and psychological stress, during situations of violence and pressure, we combine practical training, simulations of unusual situations, and drills.

* Education, training, and preparation of Israelis have defeated and mitigated violent crime and terrorism and have helped and will continue to help bring a healthy economy and high living standards to our country’s population.


Most importantly, leaders need to understand the responsibility of their decisions and actions, and only leaders with inner strength will be guided from within. Due to the recent growing importance of entrepreneurship in our daily lives, we need to explore the core strength of our inner ability far more than ever before.

Module – Israeli Armed and Unarmed Protection Methods 


Krav Maga means “Contact Combat” in Hebrew. It is the official martial art of the Israeli Defense Force and National Police, and the best training program for improving functioning under high stress situations, resulting from crises or violence. This method has been taught to thousands of civilians in Israel from all walks of life. Businessmen and housewives, old and young, have all successfully learned this method, and through experience it has proven itself time after time to be extremely well-suited for the private citizen.


The Israeli Unarmed response method, A “MUST” for Protection Operatives


  • Krav Maga, which means “Contact Combat” in Hebrew, is the official martial art of the Israeli Defense Force and National Police. It is a martial art created solely for the purpose of self-defense, devoid of any religious or philosophical elements.
  • Krav Maga is specifically designed for rapid skill acquisition and maximum effectiveness. A fundamental basis of Krav Maga is using the body’s instinctive reactions in responding to a threat, which means that Krav Maga need not be studied for many years for it to become practical.
  • The Krav Maga has been developed to assist the law enforcement and the entire security establishment’s personnel from the Civilian and Governmental sectors who have to deal with a different kind of reality then a civilian. The basic difference is that a civilian can choose to avoid certain situations, whereas the security units of all kinds have to deal with a given situation, neutralize the danger, using reasonable force and still obeying the law.
  • KM defines the needs of the specific unit and Taylor made the training program especially for them.
  • KM is considered one of the most effective methods of self defense, combat ability, and improvement of both mental and physical abilities. The method is easy to learn, and it is based on the use of reflexive movements and responses, which it implements with various techniques. Krav Maga places emphasis on the mental and technical preparedness of the trainee.
  • The KM method has long ago spread beyond the borders of Israel, and is taught in Europe, the United States, and Australia, in the civilian and security sectors. Professionals, who were exposed to the method in various security institutions and the art of combat, testify that the method has important and vital characteristics:
  1. The techniques and exercises are very practical and are very effective for practical situations in the street.
  2. One who practices the method can reach high expertise through a relatively short training period.
  3. The trainee’s ability to deal with real and pressured situations rises considerably and continues for a long time.
  • The KM combines variety of martial arts and uses the principle of Krav Maga as exploring the human natural movement and behavior to find the simple, effective, and fastest way to solve the hostile situation. The MKM training method is unique and allows the trainee to reach a high level of know how to cope in stress situations in a relatively short time.

Israeli Armed Tactical response method



This combat system has the distinct advantage of providing itself effective time after time, possibly more than any other. It has been developed and refined over many decades of conflict in the Middle East.

Aggressiveness, decisiveness, and speed are all integral elements in Israeli tactical response methods. To this end, proper mindset is heavily stressed.

Stress is introduced onto the training regimen in order to get the trainees accustomed to the pressures associated with actual events. This common-sense approach is specifically geared for deadly-force situations rather than shooting competition, where often times techniques that bring X-ring accuracy on the range simply fail under stress.

The refinement of this system began in 1975, when, for the first time in Israel’s history, the Israel National Police established a specialized counterterrorism/hostage rescue unit. Called the Yamam (A Hebrew acronym for “Special Police Unit”), this was the first time in Israel’s history that a unit was dedicated solely to this purpose.

Because of the Yamam’s specialty in counter terrorism, hostage, rescue & and violent crime combat, they are frequently involved in actual conflicts, particularly in urban settings.

This vast experience enabled operators in the Yamam to develop a comprehensive training regimen and small arms doctrine that was so effective, reliable, and user friendly, that it is universally accepted by all branches of the Israeli security apparatus, including the Israeli Security Agency (Israel’s counterpart to the FBI).


Advantages of Our System:

  1. Simple and easy to learn

  3. Prepares the Operator for Combat in unexpected situations

  7. Elevates confidence of self and weapon
  8. Innovative and unique training methods
  9. Releases the operator from thinking about shooting techniques
  10. Trains the operator not to depend on the instructor or supervisor
