Spartans Academy of Krav Maga, working with Dr Itay Gil for 5 years. Our Chief Instructor, Master Gheorghe Husar is Dr Itay Gil’s partner and UK representative. Gheorghe is Itay Gil‘s right hand man. If Gil needs another like-minded, skilled individual on one of his projects, he calls Husar. Krav Maga with Dr Itay Gil, directly from the source of the original military-made Krav Maga but with some much need tweaks and updates, made for today’s world and used in combat to save countless lives.
The past 5 years Itay Gil has run a set of invaluable krav maga seminars for Spartans Academy: ‘Weapons’ 2015, ‘Third Party & Active Shooter’ 2016, ‘Fighting Skills and Tactics & Surviving a Knife Attack’ 2017, ‘Be a Bodyguard’ 2018, and ‘Multiple Attackers & Active Shooter’ 2019.
Here’s Krav Maga Expert Instructor Paul Lindsay‘s write up of the last seminar:
“In October we had the great opportunity of learning the best in Krav Maga from Itay Gil.
Instructors and students from the UK and Europe attended this event and what a blast it was. We spent 8hrs learning how to deal with multiple attackers and active shooter scenarios.
Suffice to say we all got a few bruises and were a little sore the next day but it was well worth it.
The scenarios we work on are based on real life threats which we try to keep as realistic as possible. There is no BS or ego’s allowed. You make mistakes but you learn from them and make yourself & your fellow students better each time.
At Spartans we strive to continue to evolve our Krav Maga to keep it up to date with evolving threats as complacency breeds mistakes and false confidence.
Well done everyone who attended.”
WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO ITAY GIL BEING BACK THIS YEAR!
Spartans and KMUK members, watch this space!
