Israeli Krav Maga teaches law enforcement officers, military trainees, and ordinary citizens to use combat skills originally developed for the Israeli defense forces and modified for civilian self-defense. Having trained under krav maga founder Imi Lichtenfeld, Grandmaster Haim Gidon now oversees the instructors he has trained and certified. Some of Gidon's instructors––who have military and law enforcement experience––have been featured in USA Today and on NBC, ABC, CBS and Fox News, and have even trained celebrities such as John Mayer, whose guitar has been known to pick fights with him. These faculty members teach krav maga with a focus on empowering students while helping them to develop awareness, and life-saving skills.
