Law Enforcement Krav Maga

Law Enforcement Krav Maga Instructor Course

They learn how to teach and impart Krav Maga techniques and strategies for self-defense in the contradiction of the own security and the consideration of legal requirements and proportionality.

Content of the Law Enforcement Krav Maga Instructor Course

The content of the Law Enforcement Instructor Course is about imparting Krav Maga self-defense techniques and tactics related to seizure- and transport-techniques against one or multiple, unarmed or armed attackers, on your own or in a team. What we teach is how you can teach your colleagues didactically.

Here is the overview:

  • communication and body language
  • tactical behavior in conflict situations
  • teamwork in terms of self-defense
  • reaction to encroachments
  • relief-techniques in terms of contact-attacks
  • techniques in emergency and emergency relief situations
  • close quarter combat
  • self-defense under adverse conditions like low light/no light

In addition, we teach how to use self-defense-scenarios for prevention, reaction and defense against knife- and stick-attacks as well as gun-threats. Hostage- and anti-terror scenarios are also part of the lessons.

The techniques are based on the progress of the participants as the learning effect and the injury-free training are always in the foreground. We know, how important it is to be fully operational.

The end of every lesson is always about the so called drills, where the content you have learned before, will be recalled in everyday scenarios of security-units. This is not only how we teach the participants, but how the participants will teach their students later.

The course-language is bilingual in English and German, while all Krav Maga techniques are labelled in English anyways.


The course takes generally place in two parts on extended weekends.

In the end you get 70 h of full-time Krav Maga, divided in 2 parts with respectively 35 h.

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, by the German Defense Ministry ordered, close combat instructor for soldiers of the German Armed Forces 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 active police man and police unit instructors or military instructors of special forces.



Requirements for Krav Maga Law Enforcement Instructor Course

As the LE-training is specialized to the self-defense in commission for authorities and organizations with security tasks, we require a valid warrant card or a respectively related and serious professional activity.

There is no need for experiences in Krav Maga as this course is about further professional training to become an instructor. Education experience is an advantage though.
