In the 1960’s with military approval, Imi started teaching civilians in Israel. In 1981, the Krav Maga Association of Israel and the Ministry of Education held the first International Instructor’s Course at Wingate Institute for Physical Education. This is where our Chief U.S. Instructor Darren Levine began his journey with Imi. Darren being one of only a few who passed the grueling six week, 8 hour, six days a week training schedule.
In 1984, Imi passed his own Black Belt on to Darren. Years later Imi would award Darren with one of only two Founders Diploma’s he handed out before his passing.
Darren has continued the legacy by spreading it around the world so all people “May Walk in Peace.” We now join Darren on this journey.
