Since the terrorist attacks on September 11th 2001 there has been a surge in so called "Israeli Fighting Systems" in the United States. Individuals with very questionable background and limited skills have made claims to be affiliated students or certified instructors of Hisardut® and/or combat veterans of the Israel Defense Force. Many American citizens concern about the growing threat of terrorism were fooled into buying instructional books, DVDs and training courses offered by such individuals.

To clarify matters we would like to remind everyone that military service is mandatory in Israel and every able Israeli citizen becomes a soldier in their lifetime. Being a soldier in the IDF does not mean that they were a combat soldier, nor does it mean that they were expert in counterterrorism. Furthermore, all martial arts are very popular in Israel and many Israelis have trained and attained black belts in karate, ju-jitsu, kick boxing, kung fu and judo (at the Olympic level). Being Israeli martial art instructors does not mean that they were certified to teach Hisardut®.

To clarify any misconceptions it is important to remember that there are only TWO authentic fighting systems ("martial arts") that were developed and originated in Israel: Hisardut® and Krav Maga.

Both systems originated and developed in Israel during the same time period. The two methods share some fundamental teaching concepts but are clearly distinct from each other.

Krav Maga in an essence was developed as a BASIC and GENERIC self defense course (designed as a one week intensive training course) for the IDF (taught at the Wingate Sport Institute in Natania). Hisardut® is a complete survival system that was developed from inception to teach all methods of engagement, all aspects of survival and personal security.

Hisardut® teaches "all dimensional fighting"; from a distance, close range and on the ground with and without weapon. By comparison, Krav Maga does not teach weapons, wilderness survival, team tactics, violence management, counter terrorism and terrorism survival and has just recently adopted some ground fighting techniques from other martial arts.
