Fighting Fit Krav Maga Challenge

It is a special program that gives martial arts adepts a chance to test their skills and techniques under conditions of stress and extreme fatigue. The Fighting Fit Krav Maga Challenge program is devised based on the book "Fighting Fit" by colonel David Ben-Asher. It is divided into three parts: physical fitness, obstacle course and hand-to-hand combat.

The first seminar took place in Warsaw, January 9th, 2015 and was led by master Jyrki Saario. Tens of competitors from Poland, Hungary and Finland took part in the event. A short account of the tournament is available below:


"(...) It was entitled "An Imi Lichtenfeld's Memorial" in homage to the creator of the Krav Maga system. The event was led by master Jyrki Saario and our international instructors - Istvan Nagy and Łukasz Osiecki.

The goal of the seminar was to improve hand-to-hand combat techniques of the competitors and to prepare them to the World Championships of Fighting Fit Krav Maga Challenge, taking place this year in Hungary.

The seminar was divided into several parts. In the first part the competitors learned about the basic rules of the FFKMC program, as well as about the ideas and inspiration behind its genesis. In the subsequent parts the participants performed numerous combat drills and sparring tasks.

In the final part the contenders were divided by weight classes and the order of the tournament was drawn. Finally, the proper competition began revealing the best fighters during its course.

We hope to our idea will help build new friendships and give the competitors a chance to challenge themselves in a safe environment.

We wish to congratulate all victors and participants.(...)"
