Chief Instructor of The International Krav Maga Federation (IKMF)
Eyal Yanilov (born in 1959) studied Krav-Maga under the personal
tutelage of its founder, Imi Sde-Or (Lichtenfeld), and has served as the Grand master''s closest assistant and foremost disciple since the early 1980s. Active in this field since 1973, he is now its most senior instructor. Mr. Yanilov is the only individual who carries the highest grade ever given by Imi (M
aster level 3/Expert level 8) and holds the unique "Founder''s Diploma of Excellence" (This diploma was given only to two persons, the other - one of Eyal''s top students, Mr. Darren Levine, Expert level 6, of the United States).
Eyal Yanilov started his Krav-Maga training with Mr. Eli Avikzar (o
ne of Imi''s top students at the time) and soon after- wards began to study directly with the founder himself. At an early age, Eyal was instructing at the training studio that Imi had entrusted to Eli Avikzar, and on many occasions assisted and substituted for the Grandmaster in lessons and preparations with students who were to be tested for grades of expert level. At a later stage, when Imi appointed him Head of the Krav-Maga Professional Committee, Eyal was responsible for preparing and updating the Krav-Maga curriculum. In this capacity Eyal had the task of imparting the new developments and accumulated knowledge, changes in techniques, and the latest training methods to the other senior instructors.
In 1984 Grandmaster Imi Sde-Or placed Eyal in charge of preparing the complete and comprehensive series on the Krav-Maga discipline (of which this book is a part). Since then, and until the system''s founder passed away in January 1998, the two were deeply engrossed in
the task of writing down the principles of Krav-Maga and clarifying its various techniques.
