KAPAP is an acronym that stands for Krav Panim el Panim. Literally translated, this means face-to-face combat.
Krav Maga is a form of self-defence and physical training, first developed by the Israeli army in the 1940’s and is based on the use of reflexive responses to threatening situations.
We at IKAUK (International KAPAP Association – United Kingdom) believe our combined approach has developed a realistic self-defence survival system that is designed to encourage the individual to use what works for them.
We are all different in our size, strength, speed, agility and perceptions.
KAPAP KRAV MAGA self-defence survival system is designed to help level the odds between you and your attacker, it teaches key survival skills and how to react when attacked, it will rapidly develop an awareness of what self-defence works and what doesn’t.
The KAPAP KRAV MAGA self-defence survival system is a working doctrine, philosophy and a concept, used around the world by civilian, military, police and special forces. It is a bridge between systems that unites the common martial arts self-defence principles under a single banner.
We take what works and make it easier, more effective and harder.
Over thousands of years we have been endowed with a set of automatic survival responses that take over in the event of an assault or attack.
The KAPAP KRAV MAGA self-defence and survival system works with these natural responses to help ensure that your personal protection is second-to-none!
Utilising our system, we aim to give you the skills to help everyone survive in this modern world.
We will teach you how to recognise the early signs of a potential attack, how to avoid that attack and if all else fails, how to effectively defend yourself with physical skills with minimal effort as we ensure the user walks away from an attack unharmed.
The syllabus uses belt level progression and students can expect to reach Black Belt with between 3-5 years of training, depending on attendance and natural ability.
Here at Trinity Martial Arts And Self Defence, we adapt the teaching of KAPAP Krav Maga so that it is taught appropriately, depending on the age range of students being taught.
