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),[23]

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.[24]

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.[citation needed]

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.[25]

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.

I'm copy-pasting text from the HUMAN (Honoured & United Martial Arts Nations) group file I'm thankful to Jake Samuel Abinett for mentioning my comment which is at the very bottom of the text. I wish that these comments would be of value to humans worldwide. I wish the HUMAN group and our members all the best! Since HUMAN is an open group, I've taken the liberty of sharing its contents here which includes comments of our members. I've done this also because the public content on the Health and Fitness India network is indexed by search engines and I wish that more and more humans would find us and then connect, share and collaborate with us. Best! Shakti Saran

Filed here is a list of comments made by friends and members of HUMAN (Honoured & United Martial Arts Nations). Some of these friends and members might not remember saying these said comments here, but I myself did remember ALL OF THEM! A HUGE thank you to all friends and members for making HUMAN the group and organization it truly is today! Without you all, HUMAN would not exist! Here are the comments: 


"Jake, I am incredibly impressed with what you have done, getting together many martial artists across the world! You are a year younger than my son and I think you've done more to get people together than some of us older martial artists. I wish you good luck and the hopes that you get to meet and work out with many of the great ones out there! I send you bows of respect! Hopefully, one day, we'll (HUMAN) all get to meet together and have a great time sharing with each other! I look forward to that! Take care and live well... always!" Ned Tsouprake

"Hello Jake! I hope our HUMAN group will become the biggest organization in martial arts matters to promote one day works like events, sports, humanitarian services and martial arts leadership in many ways. This idea is realistic because today many ancient and modern systems are existent and people are innovative like never before. Maybe one day we all will work together as one martial arts family and the name of it might be HUMAN!" Martial Arts Trainer

"I am honoured to have been asked to be an Administrator of a collection of beautiful spirited people, who deep in their own hearts live with humility and benevolence. Thank you Jake!" Shizuka Kaji 


"I have to say thank you for the creator and founder Jake to this great group where I am a member and admin for his wonderful work to us." Kitty Lumy 


"Realising that you are instead an open-minded young man who shares knowledge without trying to own it or suppress it, a true paragon of what martial arts should be about... well let me just say I'm more impressed now with you than ever.

"I will give my all to ensure our strengths as we use it in pursuit of the elimination of evil... If we can apply a martial tactic, we don’t need to be strong, the force and energy is all around us, and when we are threatened, we will use the force and energy of the threat against it. Unity is what is required to achieve this desire. Thank you Mr Jake for your efforts in promoting unity among us." Matin Enahoro

"Thank YOU Jake!" Sifu Chee


"We are HUMAN…" Prateek Sharma


"Good job! And thank you." Dale A Bertram 


"Jake, one family under the sky so all people are human. Now, about martial artists, they learn to nurture a balanced emotional body, mental strength, so that speaks in favour of being strong in a world of turmoil. Appreciations to the courageous souls that seek their inner guidance, and also, great joy by connecting with likeminded/hearted people. Martial arts is still an art of self-discovery. Until we learn to not fight ourselves with the others, that reflect ourselves. Thank you, we are emerging with the knowing of the beautiful humans that we are. Speaking not of fear, speaking of wisdom, with a smile, not denying, and with great intent of integrity in honesty. Words turned into actions as well. I am honoured to be part of that soul family. Love is the keyword, balance, inner strength, and wellbeing to all." ZW Komaya


"It's an honour and pleasure to be part of this. Great job Jake Samuel Abinett in bringing this and keeping it together!" Wes Derequito


"Mr. Jake and to all that are here and to those that will come here: this place has become the blessed shores of peace. A place, though digital, a place where one such as I can come here, young minded to the world yet hungry for wisdom so to share back to those that have taught me and to those seeking such as I do. The reality of fear is that it works quickly and strongly and can last a life time. But so is peace quick and strong and too can last a life time. The only difference is which one do we see before us. And like all darkness, only a light will save us. With Jake’s gracious effort to create a light and the blessedness of all those here that see this truth and effortlessly support it without fail prove that no amount of blood could ever define family, only our love for others. And for that I love everyone of you." Heath Osage 


"This is the true core of martial arts; coming together to encourage each other, sharing knowledge, suggesting ways to protect oneself, all that; not whose belt is blacker, who has more stripes, who has won more tournaments, and/or who has trained under the best master. Jake, well done and thank you." Lincoln M. James


"Be HUMAN." Shakti Saran

Hi All,

Yesterday someone mentioned to some people that he wants to get motivated back into the LESMILLS BODYCOMBAT class and that he had been highly regular with it before. I mentioned that he could've hit a plateau and that then shared some things on which someone else mentioned that whether I had a read a book because what I was mentioning was very similar to the book. I told him that I haven't, however, I had once hit a plateau and that then my martial arts teacher had shared about it with me on which I've thought and worked on by myself since then. One thing of difference between the book and me according to the person was that I had mentioned that when in a plateau, be in and enjoy it and also try to come out of it simultaneously whereas the book didn't mention about coming out of it simultaneously. The person mentioned that he would scan and send me the pages of the book which mentions plateau which is very kind of him and that I gave him my card having my web-site on it for my contact details.

Also, I'm sharing this which mentions:

As I was once told by a very wise teacher, "If you find yourself on a plateau, sit back and enjoy the view." Plateaus in martial arts are often inevitable, so if you want to continue your training, you will have to manage it in some way. However, it is important for you to understand that being stuck is just another opportunity for you to rub against the tough spots. Because after enough rubbing and polishing those tough spots, you can be certain they will eventually become smooth enough for you to slide right off your plateau.
