Who is the IKMA? We are the real deal- the original. The IKMA (Israeli Krav Maga Association) was founded on October 22, 1978 by Krav Maga founder Imi Lichtenfeld, the inventor of Krav Maga, decades before any other Krav Maga association. The IKMA was the first such association to be recognized by the Israeli government. Imi appointed his top student, Haim Gidon, to be his successor and to further develop Krav Maga. Haim has spent nearly two decades developing Krav Maga into its most modern evolution- the Gidon System. Learn from the best. Learn real, Israeli Krav Maga. www.kravmagatampabay.com
