About our kids programme 

Children’s Krav Maga, referred to as “Krav4kids” has been developed by IKMF as part of the Krav Maga self-defence solutions created for the various civilian sectors. Kid’s self-defence enables children, in a relative short period, to learn self-defence techniques carefully adapted to match their respective age, physical and mental abilities.

Through Krav Maga training, the children are taught how to recognise common threats like bullies and kidnappers. The training also aims to improve their self-esteem, build confidence respect and discipline. IKMF Kid’s Krav Maga methods, especially in the younger age group, are mostly taught through Krav Maga games. Games help the children develop co-ordination; learn how to follow directions and foster assertiveness. Through these games kids are taught how to avoid confrontation, and how to defend themselves when necessary in order to escape. Kid’s Krav Maga openly and cautiously explains attack scenarios kids may encounter; the difference between being bullied by a classmate or by an unknown adult, their options in each situation, what is the proportional response and so on. The IKMF system divides kid’s Krav Maga into five main age categories.

As the children get older, the games become fewer games and the training resembles the adult curriculum. Children who train in Krav Maga learn a lot about commitment and endurance. Krav Maga teaches them to appreciate and be proud of their achievements when learning a new technique or passing their grade test. They get a true sense of the path they are on and with their progress they realise that no goal is impossible. In the process they also get a great workout! Kids who need to let out steam can also get a break in Krav Maga training. They’re permitted to hit the punching bag, fight with another student under the instructor’s supervision and in the process learn that without these pre-conditions it is not ok to hit or fight.
