About Kravmaga IKI

Krav Maga literally means "Combat – Contact" fighting for survival up close and personal. The roots of modern Krav Maga began with the need for self-defence in the land of Israel.

Krav Maga has no single "founder" and no official beginning, but when Europe became unbearable for Jews, Imi Lichtenfeld left the country and eventually ended up in the land of Israel in 1942, then controlled by the British and began to incorporate techniques from different styles to form an effective approach to self defence to enable the Jewish community to defend itself against Fascist militias.

Krav Maga is designed for self-defence, combat, and worst case scenarios for men and women of all ages and from all over the world.

College students, House wives, International Travellers, Businessmen, Doctors, IT people, law enforcement, Military and Special Forces.

Krav Maga (IKI) is free flowing; all styles of punching, kicking, chokes, take-downs are employed with the aim of neutralizing the enemy in the shortest amount of time possible. It is for average people who does not possess strength , speed & precision.

The style is easy to learn and apply. Krav Maga (IKI) chooses simple movements that are natural to the body, based on instincts that are already established within us.

"Krav Maga is a Self Defence Technique and not a Martial Art which can be easily learned and practiced in shortest time."

Founder Israeli Krav International – IKI – India

Masters in Business Administration - Australia

Successful entrepreneur since 12 years

Dhaval Vora is an entrepreneur with passion in martial arts and self defence. He is an avid traveller and often travels to west Africa and Asian countries for business. During these travels he has come across situations when he was rendered helpless.

Hence he decided to pursue self defence course to overcome such situations. He strongly believes that self defence is a basic right to life and is hardly taught in schools or educational institutes in India.

His search landed him in with his master and philosopher of life – Master Moshe Katz from Krav Maga – Israeli Krav International.

His experience and training with Master Moshe Katz convinced him that this is the simplest and easiest self defence technique , for average people like him.

According to Master Moshe Katz average people includes Doctors, Businessmen, IT professionals, college students, school kids, Housewives, Lawyers. They lead a busy life with huge responsibility but face offensive or challenging situations which requires them to be on guard always and protect themselves and their family.

Thus, with his conviction, belief and trust towards his master, he brought Krav Maga IKI to Mumbai, India

Hopefully this seed sown by him will grow into a tree helping our community and nation.
