Krav Panim El Panim - KAPAP קפ"פ is the Hebrew acronym for Face-To-Face Combat. It is the original combat system of CQB, hand-to-hand combat and self-defense, employed by the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF).
KAPAP (Krav Maga) fight tactics originated in the 1940's and were used by the Palmach (Jewish Strike Brigades) forces in fighting for the independence of the State of Israel. These Palmach units later formed the core of Israel's special units in the conventional military (IDF).
The KAPAP ACADEMY is staffed by former official Israeli Military and Police instructors in Counter Terror combatives (LOTAR). In oppose to typical martial arts schools it is an “all combat” system — a system totally dedicated to close combat and self-defense, with and without weapons. It has no sporting or competition aspect. Nor does it adhere to any classical/traditional school of thought.
KAPAP COMBATIVE CONCEPTS is the first and the only training center in Illinois to be certified by the KAPAP ACADEMY. We offer authentic Israeli combative CQB, H2H combat, tactical training and more. In addition to our KAPAP/Krav Maga training we offer Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) classes, kids programs (Tae Kwon Do), women self-defense classes, and uniquely designed Combat Fitness classes.
