Krav Maga is an Israeli martial art. Developed for the Israel defense Forces. It is built for self defense situations and uses simple but effective techniques. Weapons training is also a big part of the practice students will often train offensive and defensive knife and gun techniques and tactics.
Grandmaster Moti Horenstein, born and raised in Israel, discovered his passion for martial arts at a young age. Beginning with judo at the age of 5, he found discipline, balance, and confidence through the sport. His father later enrolled him in Hisardut, a training system combining judo, jiu-jitsu, kickboxing, and Krav-Maga, under the guidance of Dr. Dennis Hanover. Dr. Hanover’s influence and strict training prepared Grandmaster Moti for his service in the Israeli defense Forces, where he served in the Airborne Special Forces and commando divisions. His army experience, including fighting in the Lebanon War, left a lasting impact on him, shaping his mindset and survival skills. Continuing his martial arts journey, Grandmaster Moti achieved notable titles and championships in different styles, including becoming a world champion kickboxer. He also holds a ninth-degree Black Belt in Hisardut Krav-Maga and a Black Belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu. In 1992, he established the Survival Center, which later expanded to three locations, where he shared his knowledge and expertise through teaching seminars to various organizations. Grandmaster Moti’s commitment to constant growth and development drives him to provide his students with the best techniques in the Survival Hisardut System. Additionally, he holds the distinction of being the first Israeli UFC fighter.
