TECHNICAL PROGRAMME

A gradual progression has been set up to enable Krav Maga practitioners to develop their abilities to best advantage. It takes five years of work before the black-belt examination can be taken. At the FEKM, from black-belt level upwards, we use the term “darga”, which designates a level achieved at and after taking the black-belt examination, in accordance with our Federation’s Articles of Association and programmes.

The term “darga” designates a level achieved in Krav Maga at and after taking the black-belt examination, in accordance with the Articles of Association and technical syllabus of the European Federation of Krav Maga (FEKM). It should not be confused with the term “dan”, which may only be used by the FFKDA and its Specialist Commission on Dans and equivalent grades (Article L.212-5 of the French Sport Code). The indication of a Dan followed by a Darga is in no way intended to indicate that one is equivalent to the other, or to create confusion of any kind, but to indicate that the person concerned has obtained two separate qualifications, under the conditions specific to each of the organisations issuing them.
