Imi Lichtenfeld documentary — tribute to the Krav Maga founder

This week’s edition features the man himself — Imi Lichtenfeld. This is a tribute video about the Krav Maga founder by Krav Maga Training.

This collection of archival footage and imagery is a great homage to the man that has given us so much.

Make sure to check out 2:03 for a very agile (and older Imi) takedown!

A word of caution, accompanying music is way off the Imi spirit.

Red Belt Achieved (and Happy 2nd Anniversary)

kravmagamagazine:

Great read and inspiration.

So here I am. Another step closer towards the Black Belt and (I’d like to think) wiser by a year. Lots has happened this year, of course. I’ve learned some nice techniques including many knife and gun defenses, takedowns, lots of sparring, bear hugs, chokes, and ground defense. Lots of bruises, bumps, fractures, and other minor injuries but thankfully nothing debilitating. Here’s hoping that trend continues into Year Three.
