Welcome to the future

The HKM Transition Course (HKM-TC) is designed for Krav-Maga Instructors that wants to join HKM. The course is designed to ensure that the Instructors understand all aspects of HKM to a level of being able to teach HKM to their students.

The HKM-TC is a 7-day course that is offered on-site and online. The days are divided into 2 sessions of 4 hours/day. The 14 sessions of training is a mix of theory and physical training, with a main focus on understanding the HKM way of teaching and training.

The goal of the HKM-TC is to ensure that you as an instructor learn, understand and adapt the HKM way of training and teaching in comparison to previous ways.

Who can join the HKM-TC

HKM-TC is designed to transfer active Krav Maga instructors that are active within major organizations or active independent instructors that have a background in major Krav Maga Organisations. The main reason for targeting this demographic with the HKM-TC when designing this course is consistency in delivery of information to the end users, the students.

Since the HKM Instructor is the ambassador for HKM to the local students and environment we want to make sure that he/she is embodying that spirit and fits that profile. Therefore a successful Personal interview/skill test (online or in person) with a HKM representative is required to join any of the HKM courses that produce instructors.

Note: If you are not eligible for the HKM-TC we recommend you to participate in the HKM-IC which is the full Instructor course of Hybrid Krav-Maga (see the menu).

General Requirements for HKM-IC/TC

  • Legal age in the local country
  • No criminal record or affiliations
  • Good physical abilities
  • 4 years of experience in martial arts or min HKM W3 (P3 in major KM-org)
  • Successful Personal interview/skill test (online or in person)

What will you learn in the HKM-TC

In HKM a very strong focus is placed upon efficiency of movement and solving the problem with the means the practitioner has to solve it. Efficiency precedes form and personal abilities has a big impact on performance.

Behavior driven responses, platform, striking, stand up wrestling, clinch, grappling, takedowns, efficiency of movement and the personal prerequisites of the practitioner. Constant pressure testing and sparring is the driving forces to make HKM the most realistic, efficient, and complete fighting and self-defense system on the planet.

Violent conflict is an ever changing environment of chaos. Erratic, changing, momentarily decided by circumstances that is out of our control.

To combat this we have to spend time in it and learn to control it, to embrace the chaos as part of our environment.

We have to learn to take control of what is available to us in the moment and then work to improve on that. Get closer to the core of the problem and deal with it with the tools available to us

All training in violent conflict has to involve the element of chaos to be realistic.

Hybrid Krav-Maga utilizez chaos as a tool and let the students learn to embrace it as part of training by spending time in it.

Learn to control chaos by embracing it.
