Our Instructors are the best of the best. The Krav Maga Worldwide™ Force Training Division is comprised of instructors that are highly experienced in training law enforcement and military personnel. Many of our instructors are active-duty officers in charge of their agency’s defensive tactics program, guaranteeing they have real-world experience and the necessary background to teach Krav Maga certification to other officers.

The U.S. Chief Instructor for Krav Maga Worldwide™, Darren R. Levine, is a Senior Deputy District Attorney for the County of Los Angeles’s Crimes Against Peace Officers Section (C.A.P.O.S.), a special unit dedicated to prosecuting violent crimes. Mr. Levine is one of the highest ranked Krav Maga instructors in the world and was trained under Krav Maga founder, Imi Lichtenfeld. Mr. Levine has published and lectured extensively on the topic of police use-of-force and training policies for American law enforcement, and has taught Krav Maga to U.S. local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies and the military. He has also worked with many of the world’s top anti-terrorist and special operations units. The Krav Maga Worldwide™ Force Training Division staff is eminently well qualified to offer testimony on relevant use-of-force issues.

In addition to being an experienced Maga fighter, Mr. Levine is extremely passionate about passing along his knowledge regarding the Krav Maga self defense system through Krav Maga instructor certification. With the teaching skills of Mr. Levine and the numerous other Krav Maga instructors, you or your agency will receive maximum benefits from our Krav Maga instructor courses.

Defensive Tactics

Krav Maga focuses on brutal and intense counter-attacks that protect the user and impair the predator. The Krav Maga Worldwide™ Force Training Division embraces these techniques and is dedicated to the advancement of defensive tactics training for law enforcement and military personnel. In fact, Krav Maga was originally developed for the military in Israel, and is the official system of self-defense employed by the Israeli Defense Forces, the Israeli National and Military Police, and the Israeli Special Operations and Security units.

At Krav Maga Worldwide, we know what it takes to build a strong law enforcement agency or military unit. Cognizant of different use-of-force standards between Israel and the United States, important steps were taken by the Krav Maga Worldwide™ Force Training Division to refine and adapt Krav Maga in order to develop an effective, comprehensive, and appropriate defensive tactics system for the needs of American law enforcement and military. We can teach you the difference during Krav Maga certification.

Krav Maga for American Law Enforcement
Keenly aware of use-of-force issues facing law enforcement, the Force Training Division gathered top authorities in the use-of-force field, including deputy district attorneys, police liability defense lawyers, police administrators, and top defensive tactics instructors to create an effective system for the street that is based upon sound legal principles. By blending this military martial arts system with knowledge of the American law enforcement system, we developed a Krav Maga certification course that builds some the strongest and smartest fighters.

Krav Maga emerged in an environment where extreme violence, mostly of a political nature, was common. It has had ample opportunity to be tested and improved under real-life conditions, proving itself to be an ideal means of defending yourself in the face of life threatening danger. This makes it an ideal system to pass along to professional soldiers, and police officials. No defensive tactics system in the world is more street and battle-tested than Krav Maga.

What Makes Krav Maga Different?

Krav Maga is not another police defensive tactics system based on traditional martial arts approaches. It is a modern, reality-based method of training characterized by coherent and logical thinking that builds up easy, natural, and practical techniques featuring simple movements of the human body. Because the Krav Maga system is well-integrated, common defensive principles apply to a variety of attack scenarios. Thus, the system can be learned in a relatively short period of instruction. When you take our Krav Maga instructor certification course, you learn why the techniques are easy to retain and can be performed under stress.

Law Enforcement / Military Applications

Earning Krav Maga Instructor Certification teaches individuals a wide variety of skills. The Krav Maga system has received international recognition as an innovative and highly practical defensive tactics system ideally suited for law enforcement and military. According to personnel who have undergone Krav Maga Worldwide™ Instructor Certification Training, the most important and striking characteristics of the system are:

  • EFFICIENT TRAINING PERIOD – Personnel attain a high level of proficiency in a short period of time. The program is easy to learn and easy to teach.
  • RETENTION OF TRAINING – Because the system is based upon common principles and natural/instinctive movements, personnel are able to retain the techniques with minimal review, and perform them under stress.
  • PRACTICAL TECHNIQUES – The core emphasis of Krav Maga is on effectiveness and simplicity. It provides realistic defenses against a variety of aggressive attacks, whether the assailant is armed or unarmed.
  • PERFORMANCE UNDER STRESS – Training methods unique to the Krav Maga Worldwide™ system provide reality-based training designed to improve the operator’s emotional and physical response to danger. These training methods develop the ability to identify threats at the earliest stages, react without hesitation, and escalate or de-escalate with the appropriate levels of force.
  • USE-OF-FORCE ISSUES – Krav Maga enables operators to deal with the most violent offenders they encounter, while remaining acutely aware of reasonable use-of-force and civil liability issues facing law enforcement and military personnel.

These are all crucial factors that must be considered in the development of any defensive tactics program. Krav Maga is particularly relevant to modern-day law enforcement, because most agencies cannot afford the luxury of prolonged training courses for their personnel.
