KMA FORCE INSTRUCTOR GEAR LIST
- Utility type trousers
- Tactical style (rigger) under belt
- Several T-shirts (moisture wicking under shirts are also recommended)
- Sam Browne equipment belt, leather or nylon
- Holster – we can provide Glock style training guns, but you need to ensure that you have a compatible holster. If you bring your own training pistol, bring a compatible duty holster
- Magazine pouch (either for your own gun or Glock 9mm)
- Handcuff case
- Pepper spray holder (spray and inert spray are provided)
- Baton ring (baton is provided)
- Radio pouch (we will be using replica radios for scenario training. If you don’t have a pouch, it’s not a huge deal, but it is good to have what your students have)
- A high quality tactical flashlight, preferably a Surefire
- Full fight gear. We will be training hard; you will get punched in the face and kicked in the groin
- MMA style gloves
- Personal pistol and appropriate gear, if you wish, although firearms will be provided for the range day
- Eye and ear protection. It’s a mark of a professional to have your own. Posers use range rentals
- Under Armour and OTB Jungle or Desert “lites” are in my opinion, the best for what we do
- Original SWAT makes a less expensive alternative
- Under Armour, Woolrich, EOTac, and Blackhawk Lightweight tactical trousers are great
- Tru-Spec makes a fantastic trouser that is very affordable
Moisture Wicking Shirts
- Under Armour are the standard
- Tru-Spec makes a great alternative, as does Champion (at Target stores) if you can find a subdued color
- Blackhawk makes several affordable models
- Surefire 6p, 6Z, Nitrolon, etc.
- Streamlight makes some good alternatives
Equipment Belt, holsters, pouches
- Save yourself some heartache and buy Safariland or Bianchi
- If money is an issue, Uncle Mikes works well enough
- You should have at least a level 1 retention holster, but any holster will do provided that it is well built and can withstand the rigors of training
Eye and Ear protection
- Mission Specific equipment! Professionals use professional grade safety equipment. If you would like professional, custom fit earplugs made, I will have the person come to the training site and make them for you right there

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.
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.
