The Alliance, Year One
The Krav Maga Alliance has grown much faster than we anticipated. It really started as an informal training program for close friends. When I parted ways with Krav Maga Worldwide, where I’d been president for 8 years, I kept getting asked for training by people who’d known me as one of the top instructors. As more and more people trained, I began to organize, and founded the Krav Maga Alliance.
One year later, with zero advertising and no business plan, we have 40 affiliates on 3 continents. We have conducted multiple training courses, and we have sponsored one of the best Krav Maga/Firearms courses ever offered: Trial By Firearms in Las Vegas.
And this is only the beginning.
We will have a series of exciting announcements during the next two months. Thanks to a team of dedicated affiliates and friends, we’ve established a strong foundation. Now we are going to building on that foundation.
The first step is the creation of the Alliance Training Team. I want the Krav Maga Alliance to be ten times stronger 5 years on. To do that, we must build the next generation of high level instructors now. To that end, we are beginning to train the Alliance Training Team, which will be composed of Lead Instructors and Instructors. The Team itself will be announced soon, but I promise that every Lead Instructor will have the following credentials:
- Black Belt in Krav Maga and/or direct military or law enforcement experience
- School owner
- Direct experience implementing and managing a Krav Maga program, students, and instructors
Our lead instructors will know what it takes to become a Black Belt in Krav Maga, and they will also know what it takes to make it a successful business. I want the next generation of Krav Maga Alliance instructors to be better than I am, more experienced than I am, and more able to help our affiliates grow. That’s how we will become ten times stronger 5 years on.
I hope you’ll help us get there!
