Instructor Types

Practitioner Instructor:

A Practitioner Instructor is the first step to becoming a qualified Krav Maga Systems Instructor. This level can be compared to a green belt in another martial arts. 

At this level a Practitioner Instructor can teach children from 7 to 13 years old. Their teaching level is specific to this age range and still not fully developed for teens and adults.

At this level the Practitioner Instructor is at a early level in terms of Krav Maga Systems experience.

It is the gateway to the higher levels and to true Krav Maga Systems mastery.

Expert Instructor:

This is a pretty much a black belt in Krav Maga Systems and representation of the highest level of skill and knowledge outside of Master rank. To get to this level you need to dedicate thousands of hours here and in Israel. 

You must have completed all the minimum specialty training modules to reach this level. 

Graduate Instructor:

Graduate Instructor is the first stage to teaching teens and adults. It is like a blue belt in another martial art and is reflection of intermediate skills in Krav Maga Systems .

At this level an Instructor really understands Krav Maga Systems and can teach it to a high level. They’ve gone through hundreds of hours of training and teaching and really know their craft. 

This level is the gateway to true mastery which is within the Expert level. 


Instructors can specialise in different fields, such as Law Enforcement or VIP Protection.

In order to do this, an Instructor needs to be a minimum of Graduate Level and have over over 300 hours of teaching experience.
