Prepare with the best. You will develop not only your technique, but learn Krav Maga philosophy, critical business and teaching skills to succeed as a respected Krav Maga instructor. Tactica Krav Maga Institute’s Krav Maga Instructor Certification (KMIC) occurs yearly at the Tactica headquarters in Santa Clara CA. In 2020, Phase 1 is 9 days: Feb 29 – Mar 8, and Phase 2 is 9 days: Aug 29 – Sep 6.
Registration for Phase 1 closes January 31.
- Relevant experience (must provide documentation):
- Minimum of 2 years of experience in Krav Maga (P4+)
- Competitive combative sports background
- Martial art black belt
- Background check
- Health clearance
Successful completion of KMIC Phase 1 will grant a Practitioner 5 rank, and enable you to teach Krav Maga P1 through P3 material. Your certification is not a participation certificate. Your rank and instructor level will be determined according to your individual written and practical test performance.
Phase 1 is 9 days, roughly 8am-5pm, and will cover physical training, teaching techniques and theory, creating and holding specialized classes for youth and women, training safety including first aid training, and more. You will not have time for any other activity during this time, so be prepared to be fully dedicated during these 9 days.
