(lit. "contact combat", "close combat”) is an eclectic hand-to-hand combat system developed in Israel that involves wrestling, grappling and striking techniques, mostly known for its extremely efficient and brutal counter-attacks, as it is also taught to elite special forces around the world.
It was derived from street-fighting skills developed by Imi Lichtenfeld, who made use of his training as a boxerand wrestler, as a means of defending the Jewish quarter during a period of anti-Semitic activity in Bratislava in the mid- to late 1930s. In the late 1940s, following his immigration to Israel, he began to provide hand-to-hand combat training to what was to become the IDF, developing the techniques that became known as Krav Maga. It has since been refined for both civilian and military applications.
Prior to 1980, all experts in Krav Maga lived in Israel and trained under the Israeli Krav Maga Association. That year marks the beginning of contact between Israeli Krav Maga experts and interested students in the United States. In 1981, a group of six Krav Maga instructors traveled to the US to demonstrate their system, primarily to local Jewish Community Centers. The New York field office of the FBI and the FBI's main training center at Quantico, Virginia saw it and expressed interest. The result was a visit by 22 people from the US to Israel in the summer of 1981 to attend a basic Krav Maga instructor course. The graduates from this course returned to the US and began to establish training facilities in their local areas. Additional students traveled to Israel in 1984 and again in 1986 to become instructors. At the same time, instructors from Israel continued to visit the US. Law enforcement training in the US began in 1985. Krav Maga is currently being taught as a primary hand-to-hand combat technique at some police departments in the United States.
Kapap is a combat doctrine made up of a combination of several fighting styles such as boxing, judo, jujitsu, combat with knife, gun and rifle. The emphasis is put on fighting empty handed against each of these weapons, and weapon against weapon. Kapap is suitable for all fighting fields and enables the warrior to overcome any kind of fighting and prepares him to almost any possible situation. Kapap is neither a sport nor is it competitive; it is not a martial art either. Kapap is a great mean of self-defense.
The Kapap warrior is a fast, precise and lethal fighting machine. Kapap is made suitable to different levels of the learners: children, teenagers, adults, policemen, soldiers, security and armed forces personnel and bodyguards. Each group has to follow and master a specific syllabus.
A Kapap person is not a fighter (competitive fighter); he is a warrior (man of war) literally. He is prepared for any situation against any kind of weapon. He will know how to defend himself and his surroundings against any form of attack which puts him or his environment in danger. He will be able, shall the need come up, to operate different kinds of weapons and firearms. He will do so with excellent skill.
It was not until 1999 that Kapap started being taught in an organized manner in Israel and outside it. This happened after many years in which other kinds of combat styles ruled, such as: Krav maga, karate and judo, instructed throughout the world mainly for the purpose of sports competitions.
These martial arts lost their fighting effect and became soft in order to meet the needs of those competitions. Kapap came back in light of the terrible security situation and street crime which created the need for real self-defense techniques. Kapap instructors in Israel today train Israel Defense Forces units, different armed forces units such as the Yamam and Shabakas well as various elite units.A Kapap warrior knows he will never compete, never receive a medal or trophy when he overcomes an opponent. However, he will gain his life which is the true reward.
