Hi chaps,

I'm writing an article about MA for language teachers.

Could anyone tell me what the language of Krav Maga syllabus is. Is there a Hebrew terminology which is used across the board or is it just in the local language?

Example: When I trained TKD, we learned all techniques in Korean, allowing us to train anywhere in the world without needing the local language.

Its an Israeli system but it uses the local language of the country its being taught in
Maybe contact the Israeli Krav Maga Organisation for answers to your questions

I see Krav Maga as Kickboxing meets Wrestling with many Traditional Martial Arts techniques thrown in for good measure

I'm writing an article for an English teacher's magazine about MA and ideas for language classes. Was just pointing out how I knew all the parts of the body in Korean (from TKD) but not Polish (where I live) and I used the fact to prompt me to learn these terms. I was curious as to whether KM used Hebrew.

Apparently KM was designed by a Jewishboxer/wrestler who originally taught Jewish youths street techniques for defence of the Jewish neighbourhoods. He later moved to Palestine and taught it to the fledgling IDF.
