The Krav Maga Podcast is brought to you by Krav Maga XD’s Joey Karam based in California.
In this episode Joey Karam interviews Eyal Yanilov, head of Krav Maga Global (KMG) and the highest ranked Krav Maga Instructor in the world.
Born in 1959, Eyal Yanilov began his Krav Maga training in 1974 with Eli Avikzar, (at the time one of the top Krav Maga instructors) and soon afterwards, Eyal began to study Krav-Maga directly under the personal tutelage of Grand Master Imi-Sde Or (Lichtenfeld), the founder of Krav Maga.
Eyal demonstrated extraordinary talent as student in Krav Maga, and then later as an Instructor and went on to serve as Imi’s closest assistant from the early 1980’s for almost 20 years. Eyal is the only person in the world to whom Imi presented the ‘Founders Diploma of Excellence’.
