"So that one may walk in peace." - Imi Lichtenfeld Founder of Krav Maga and the IKMF

Krav Maga Minneapolis is proud to be part of the International Krav Maga Federation (IKMF). Founded by Imi Lichtenfeld before the creation of the State of Israel, Krav Maga became a standard part of the military during the founding of the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) and during Imi's service. After Imi retired from the military, he continued to teach and develop Krav Maga for civilian practice.
