Kapap Israeli Martial Art

Krav Panim El Panim - KAPAP is the Hebrew acronym for “Face To Face Combat”. It is the original combat system of defensive tactics, hand-to-hand combat and self-defense, employed by the Israeli defense and security forces, the Israeli national Police, and its special operations and anti-terrorist units. KAPAP fight tactics originated in the 1940's and were used by the Palmach (Jewish Strike Brigades) forces in fighting for the independence of the State of Israel. These Palmach units later formed the core of Israel's special units in the conventional (IDF) military.

The modern day KAPAP combat system is headed by Lt. Col Chaim Pe'er who served in one of Israel's most elite units, called Matkal, and later on, trained other special units in guerrilla warfare and hand to hand combat tactics. The KAPAP system was
updated from its basic form of combat by the operatives of special units and official Instructors that served, and still serve,
in Israel's different security branches.

KAPAP Academy was formed by two former official Israeli Military and Police instructors in Counter Terror combatives (LOTAR).
Avi Nardia (Major, IDF Res.): Avi served in a Police special unit as an intelligence team member and defensive tactics/CQB instructor. In 24 years of reserve service to the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF), he earned the rank of Major and served in the Israeli army (IDF) in the Lebanese War (1982). As well, he has trained Police agencies and armed forces all over the world; from Police patrol and corrections officers to SWAT, SRT and SERT team members along with Army, Marine and counter terror units to
Special Forces.

In Israel, he taught defensive tactics and operational behaviour at the Operational Police Academy, which is charged with training
the entire police force of the country. He is the only instructor to be an official instructor for the Israeli army - Israeli police and
Israeli counter terror units.

Albert Timen: Albert is a former Elite Counter Intelligence undercover unit member for the IDF as well as a LOTAR and CQB instructor for various Police S.W.A.T. schools. Albert is one of only a few security operatives in the world to arrest a “live” Suicide Bomber! The bomber still had his explosive belt strapped on and was caught in the act of committing a bombing.

In his 18 years of operational experience, Albert has trained Special Units in tactics and cross trained with the best operational units in the world.Today’s KAPAP Academy serves as a “think tank”, a repository of knowledge and EXPERIENCE with respect to the next level in Reality self defense.

It is based on understanding and utilizing realistic scenarios that have emerged from real world experience in some of our worst and most threatening environments. Notably, KAPAP minimizes the need for either strength or power on the part of the KAPAP practitioner in taking action to protect themselves or their loved ones.

Our training system includes a well established curriculum and it is mainly based on live exercises and simulations. We believe that only a wise combination of strategy and tactical learning, with extensive and realistic training, can offer professional and practical solutions in: modern high stress situations.

Israeli CQB Any weapon – one mind.

  • Always a student, sometimes a teacher.
  • Better to remain a student of reality than a master of illusion. 
  • Knives never run out of ammo or jam,that’s why edged weapon are the most dangerous.
