One day, a group of Krav Maga instructors were sitting around the table in Israel after a long day of training at the Wingate Institute. One said to another, I really like training with you, wouldn't it be great if we all could get together in the US and put on a camp? Three days of Krav and shooting with awesome people for awesome people. The rest is history!

Last year I had the extreme pleasure of being able to attend my first Krav Maga Camp with Krav Maga Universal. It was like summer camp but with combatives and weapons training, and with some of the most uniquely skilled instructors in the field of self-protection (I mean what more could a girl ask for?!). I have very little experience with firearms and felt completely safe as well as learning many new skills during the 3-day long camp. In addition, even though many of us did not know each other previously, the camaraderie happened instantaneously and to this day we all share that bond and fantastic memories. This is a truly unique experience that I highly recommend to anyone looking to be exposed to the highest level and professional instruction in both handling firearms as well as self-protection training, while buildling lasting relationships, whether for business or friendship. I seriously have been counting the days to the next Krav Camp since I left last year.
This year will be my 5th Krav Camp with Ernie – each has been an amazing experience, where I have been able to make great friends and create lasting memories. Last year’s camp was by far the best to date – we had instruction in Tactical Medicine, Apache Knife fighting, pistol and carbine shooting – we also learned various offensive and defensive Krav Maga techniques from some of the very best instruction in the world. It was truly an experience to remember. Whether you are an beginning practitioner with little or no experience or someone more advanced - it’s a training opportunity that you cannot afford to miss.
Best experience I have ever had. The trainers were international military, American military, local police officers, medical personnel.
I’ve only done stationary range shooting but at this camp I learned to shoot from multiple positions, moving targets, long range targets and trail targets using different types of firearms. Even shooting at night in the rain! Plus daily Krav Maga training with people from all over the world. Thank you Ernie for putting this together and having such highly trained and experienced instructors to teach this camp.
