The history of Israeli Fighting systems dates back to 1919, with the implementation of the British Mandate. In this same year the Jewish people formed an underground army known as the Haganah (the Hebrew word for defense) to deal with the ongoing conflict with various terrorist gangs, and in anticipation of the creation of a Jewish state promised to them by the British in the Balfour Declaration. Throughout its existence since that time, the little region in the Middle East now known as Israel has had to fight daily in order to survive.

Completely surrounded by enemies under the most hostile circumstances, Israel has always been outnumbered in its battles. In response to continuous overwhelming odds, the Israelis developed systems of combat that emphasized mental toughness, versatility, innovation and practicality at its core.

The formalities of traditional defense systems were abandoned in favor of methodologies that valued rapid and instinctive learning. These philosophies helped Israel and its citizens to survive in the face of constant aggression as the nation formed one of the most respected military forces in the world in the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF). Faced with warfare and terrorism, the Israeli military developed combat systems that were practical in the battlefield.

Israeli Fighting systems have been successfully used for decades by Israeli Special Forces, FBI, high profile bodyguards, counter-terrorist police units, and SWAT units from around the world.

THE BIRTH OF COMMANDO KRAV MAGA

Shortly after the Yom Kippur War in the 1970s, the Israeli military looked to improve upon its close quarter combat system. It was at this time that Moni Aizik, a member of one of Israel's most elite Commando units, was assigned to evolve the military's existing hand to hand combat system. Moni was sought after because of his extensive martial arts experience and battlefield experience.

In his youth, Moni dominated the Judo and Jiu Jitsu arena winning 7 National titles. After turning 18, Moni served his country as a member of one of Israel's most elite Commando units in the IDF. Having fought in the Yom Kippur War in 1973, Moni's unit was decimated and he was one of the few that survived. During his service, Moni quickly learned what would and wouldn't work in real life situations.

In his new assignment after the war, Moni experimented with combative tactics and techniques under the most realistic conditions. Through intensive research and rigorous field testing, Moni extracted the most practical and effective moves that could be utilized even in the most stressful and unpredictable situations. It was at this time that Moni Aizik created Commando Krav Maga.
