John Whitman

Krav Maga Alliance Founder

The Krav Maga Alliance was created by John Whitman, a sixth degree black belt in Krav Maga. John is the former president of Krav Maga Worldwide, and earned instructor degrees from the Krav Maga Association of America, Krav Maga Worldwide, and the prestigious Wingate University in Israel. He is the only person to have earned a Senior Instructor diploma from Wingate.  He has trained thousands of civilians and hundreds of law enforcement and military personnel, including the Air Force’s Office of Special Investigations Antiterrorist Specialty Team. John is the co-author of COMPLETE KRAV MAGA and KRAV MAGA FOR BEGINNERS. He was a leading participant in the creation and refinement of the
Instructor Training Program used by Krav Maga Worldwide, a program he headed for 7 years.

Krav Maga Alliance & Politics

We want to stay out of them. Period. We want to be inclusive rather than exclusive. We encourage our affiliates to join other organizations, Krav Maga and otherwise. Learn as much as you can. Discard what you think is ineffective. Stay with us as long as we are beneficial, and move on to something else if it suits you.
