Welcome on the Europe IKMF Regional Direction webpage.
IKMF is the older and the bigger Krav Maga organization in the world, founded on 1995 by Imi Lichtenfeld, the creator of Krav Maga, and present nowadays in 62 countries. During 2015 we celebrate our 20th Anniversary.
IKMF is leaded by M° Avi Moyal, one of the founders choosed by Imi to carry on his work, and is organized in national branches and in 4 regional areas. Our organization is constantly growing and we often receive requests from countries where we are not yet present or where there is no active official direction. For us is very important to take care and support national organizations in order to spread the real krav maga and help our instructors all over the world.

They are constantly traveling the world conducting Instructor Courses, special courses and seminars. They are members of G.I.T. (Global Instructor Team), C.I.T.
