“Krav Maga is a unique self-defense system designed for use in both public safety and military special operations contexts.  The Krav Maga system provides solutions to a multiplicity of armed and unarmed threats to law enforcement personnel, security officers and military operators.  Krav Maga Defensive Tactics Seminars for Law Enforcement offered through the Professional Development Institute is divided into three (3) levels.  It is beneficial, but not required, for participants to attend the seminars in levels 1-3 order.  Participants can attend any of the level 1,2 or 3 seminars and learn how to perform the fight from various positions of disadvantage, in varying degrees of readiness (e.g., instinctive training), against a variety of threats and under high stress scenarios.“


The Saint Paul Police Professional Development Institute (PDI) is sponsoring a 2-day course in KRAV MAGA TACTICS FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT - Level 3 of 3.


Are you noticing that suspects are less apt to use violence to “get away” and more willing to “attack” officers?  If so, you need to take a look at this system.  The chances of encountering suspects trained in Mixed Martial Arts and “Cage Fighting” have increased dramatically.  Over-train for these encounters, and you may find that your presence alone is enough to prompt compliance in a majority of your citizen contacts.  Reality-based training methods unique to the Krav Maga system designed to push participants past “exhaustion” to improve law-enforcement personnel’s emotional and physical response to danger. These training methods develop the ability to recognize danger at the earliest stages, react without hesitation, and escalate with the appropriate level(s) of force.

Remember, individuals we may encounter at any moment are on the mat and in the ring as you read this.

Krav Maga directly translates to “Contact Combat” and is an official self-defense and close-quarter combat system of Israeli Defense Force (IDF) and Israeli security apparatus. Krav Maga is a modern, reality based method of training.  The Krav Maga defensive tactics training is characterized by a logical & progressive approach to learning that results in a highly effective, easy to learn, natural and practical method of hand to hand combat for real life violent encounters. Krav Maga features both defensive and offensive techniques. The Krav Maga System deals with scenarios where, for any number of reasons, operators face life threatening situations in which higher force options cannot immediately be accessed. From this perspective, the operator must respond with sound, aggressive, unarmed defensive techniques and combative until a transition to higher force options can be achieved.

Michael Rozin is a well-known Krav Maga instructor amongst the Law Enforcement community in the Twin Cities. He served as a Sergeant in a specialized infantry unit in the Israeli Defense Forces.  During his deployment Michael participated in operations at the West Bank, Syrian and Lebanon border.  After his military service he joined the Israeli Airport Authority where he worked as a security agent for Ben-Gurion International Airport in Tel Aviv under the supervision of the Israeli Security Agency, (Shin Bet). Part of Michael’s training at Ben Gurion Airport included advanced Krav Maga training.
