Created in 1997 by Richard DOUIEB, official representative of Imi LICHTENFELD in Europe, the European Federation of Krav-Maga now includes more than 15 000 members in 10 countries: France, Belgium, Switzerland, Poland, Finland, Portugal, Italy, Spain, United-Kingdom and Luxembourg. That makes FEKM the first organization in the world for thenumber of members! Montréal CANADA has now joined the FEKM. Welcome!
DO NOT BE ABUSED BY THE "ASPARTAME" EFFECT : it is called Krav Maga, it looks like Krav Maga, it has an official side but it may not be Krav Maga ... Plaese enquire! Krav Maga is:
- A specific and detailed technical syllabus ;
- A technical part AND a Combat part;
- A structured course.
There is no equivalence. A black belt in Krav Maga knows the technical program of Krav Maga and practices for at least 5 years.
A Krav-Maga Championship?!
The mission of the European Federation of Krav Maga FEKM is to promote Krav Maga in respecting nature, technical richness and specific principles developed by its founder Imi Lichtenfeld..
Here's why the FEKM can't seriously consider a championship of this discipline.
