Krav Maga training to be held Davao

The International Krav Maga Federation (IKMF) in the Philippines and its local training center in Davao will be holding its first Krav Maga self-defense seminar this February.

The two day seminar, to be held on the 7th and 8th at the Holiday Gym and Spa in Davao, will be lead by Dindo de Jesus, regional director of IMKF in Asia and country director and chief instructor of IMKF in the Philippines.

De Jesus holds an Expert 1 rank; he is the first and the highest (in rank) Krav Maga Practitioner in the whole of the Far East Asia. His rank was granted in Israel after having passed the testing and criteria given by Master Avi Moyal. His Graduate Level 5 was granted to him by Israel Tamir (Expert Level 4 GIT-IKMF).

The two-day seminar will cover trainings on defense against punches and kicks, knife attacks, grabs and holds, and choke. Defense against knife threats in various situations will also be covered.

Krav Maga was developed in Israel for the Israeli Defense Forces. It is a noncompetitive self-defense system the key principle of which is to finish a fight as quickly as possible and therefore all attacks are aimed towards the most vulnerable parts of the body (e.g., eyes, neck, groin, knee, etc.).

Krav Maga has a philosophy emphasizing threat neutralization, simultaneous defensive and offensive maneuvers, tactics and aggression.

Outside Israel, IKMF Krav Maga is used by various special police, military and intelligence forces, such as American CIA, FBI, US Marshals, USAF, DEA, Federal Air Marshals, Sea Marshals, various police departments (SWAT teams), French GIGN, French Foreign Legion, Belgian Army and the Hong Kong and Taiwan SWAT teams, Macao Security and in over 64 countries around the globe.
