Civil Krav Maga Instructor Course

Civil Krav Maga


When you practice Krav Maga, you are able to defend yourself and others, independent from age or sex in any kind of situation. Only by using your inner reflexes!

There are no rules in real-life fighting-situations, so there are no rules in Krav Maga either. Except from one: Fight! No matter whether you have to fight against one or multiple attackers: Never give up!

The intuitive and quick availability of the techniques as well as its effectivity lead to the success of the system and its international increase.

The highlights of our Krav Maga Training is by the way that we do not mainly train in the gym and on the mats, but create the training and situations as realistic as possible. Be it in a bus, on airplane seats or in a pub.

Content of the KRAVolution Civil Instructor Course

We set new standards with our new concept for the Krav Maga instructor training and want to think out of the box. That´s why we revolutionized the former training.

We won´t lie. It´s a hard way from a participant to an instructor and by that to a Krav Maga blackbelt – earned not given. But, if you can make it, you´ll belong to the best educated Krav Maga instructors all over the world.

The Instructors

The Head Instructor Carsten Draheim is the lead instructor of the Krav Maga Institut, one of the biggest schools for the Israeli self-defense system Krav Maga in the German speaking area. Together with his Instructor-Team of the Krav Maga Institut he leads more than 3500 teaching units a year.

In order to share his knowledge and experiences, he wrote the book Krav Maga: A Comprehensive Guide For Individuals, Security, Law Enforcement and Armed Forces in 2015. This one is so far the only teaching supplement for Krav Maga Instructors internationally. Additionally, he writes articles for military and police magazines, like K-ISOM, on a regular basis.

He is also close combat instructor for soldiers of the German Armed Forces, ordered by the German Defense Ministry, and appliers in that sector of the police for North Rheine Westphalia. In addition, he also trains appliers of the military and the police as a S.W.A.T. Instructor internationally.

Draheim teaches together with an expert-team, consisting of highly graduated Krav Maga experts, who have a professional connection to self-defense.



Entrance requirement is to pass the 3-day Assistant Instructor Course beforehand and of course extensive training-experiences – in average at least four years.

Nevertheless, you can also participate, when you are a martial arts trainer with less than 4 years of experience. But you should prove 1-2 years of regular Krav Maga training then.

The Assistant Instructor Course always takes place from Fridays to Sundays with 25-30 h Krav Maga in total to create the ideal preconditions for the Civil Instructor Course.

In addition, you need an impeccable certificate of good conduct. We do not want to teach those, we want to be protected for.

We reserve the denial of participants, we think are not suitable. Needless to say, you will get you money back then.
