The FEKM-USA (European Federation of Krav Maga – Sector USA)

The largest Krav Maga organization in the world is the FEKM (Fédération Européene de Krav Maga), and its success is founded on the technical ability and collegial attitude of its founder Richard Douieb.

Theirs is the model we seek to emulate, where all have a voice yet are bound to adhere to a set of both technical and moral principles which helps the entire organization to develop, with each club and each individual growing within it.

In order to remain in line with the FEKM, the FEKM-USA aims to ensure that as it expands, and students begin to teach within their parent club and eventually branch out to found their own clubs, we all remain in close contact with the FEKM.

We will do this by constant referral to our own European and Worldwide renowned Instructors, by providing constant guidance on the application of Krav Maga principles to all that teach and constantly challenge our work by looking inside Krav Maga and outside to other disciplines.

All members of the FEKM-USA are required to abide by the code of ethics of the FEKM and therefore undertake to be:

  • Honest
  • Non-aggressive
  • Humble
  • Respect the terms of our statutes, our internal regulations, our instructors and our training partners

Besides this, to use the techniques of Krav Maga exclusively during classes or for the purpose of defending our physical integrity or that of those near to us and to  help develop a climate of friendship and simplicity.
