Some of the Krav Maga organizations in Israel, such as the
IKMA (Israeli Krav Maga Association, by Haim Gidon),
KMF (Krav Maga Federation, by Haim Zut),
Bukan (By Yaron Lichtenstein),
K.A.M.I. the Israeli Krav Magen Association (found by Eli Avikzar RIP, – today by Avi Abeceedon), as well as
international KMW (Krav Maga Worldwide, by Darren Levine),
use Imi Lichtenfeld's original colored belt grading system which is based upon the Judo ranking system. It starts with White belt, and then Yellow, Orange, Green, Blue, Brown and Black belts.
Black belt students can move up the ranks from 1st to 9th Dan.
The time and requirements for advancing have some differences between the organizations.
In Europe the Fédération Européenne de Krav Maga (by Master Richard Douieb) and Krav Maga Academy Slovenia (by Master Karli Zaniug) also uses the colored belt grading system which is based upon the Judo ranking system.
Other organizations that teach Krav Maga in and outside of Israel like
the International Krav Maga Federation (IKMF),
Krav Maga Global (KMG) and
International Krav Maga (IKM)
use the same grading system based on a series of patches.
The patch system was developed by Imi Lichtenfeld after the belt system in the late 1980s.
The grades are divided into 3 main categories; Practitioner, Graduate and Expert.
Each of the categories, which are often abbreviated to their initials, has 5 ranks.
Grades P1 through to P5 are the student levels and make up the majority of the Krav Maga community.
After P5 are G1-G5, and in order to achieve Graduate level the student has to demonstrate a proficiency in all of the P level techniques before advancing.
The majority of instructors hold a G level grade and are civilian instructors. However, passing the instructor's training course is a requirement, and holding a Graduate rank does not necessarily make one an instructor.
The Graduate syllabus also builds on the Practitioner syllabus by focusing more on developing fighting skills. The Expert grades cover more advanced military and 3rd party protection techniques as well as advanced sparring and fighting skills.
People who hold these ranks tend to teach in other sectors such as military and law enforcement in addition to civilian.
In order to progress to Expert level, one has to demonstrate proficiency in all of the Practitioner and Graduate syllabi and have excellent fighting skills.
Beyond Expert 5 there is the rank of Master. However, this rank is held by only a small number of individuals and reserved only for those who have dedicated a lifetime to Krav Maga and made valuable contributions in teaching and promoting the style.
Krav Maga organizations in the United States, South America and Europe such as
Krav Maga Worldwide,
Krav Maga Alliance,
National Krav Maga Association (NKMA),
Apolaki Krav Maga,
United States Krav Maga Association (USKMA),
Krav Maga Street Defence,
South American Federation of Krav Maga,
European Federation of Krav Maga,
Hagana System and
Krav Maga Academy Slovenia (KMAS)
also use a belt ranking system like that of the IKMA, KMF and Bukan.
Although there are some subtle differences, the various organisations teach the same core techniques and principles.
Some other organizations such as
Pure Krav Maga (founded by Boaz Aviram) and
Urban Krav Maga
have less formal grading ranks without belts or patches but do have levels by which students can monitor their progress.
