Corona – never give up – reduced course

The KRAVolution Krav Maga Institute is officially recognised by the Cologne District Government as a training and further education institute on 10 June 2020. We are explicitly not a sports facility, a fitness studio and we do not do any leisure sports. We serve the proper vocational training and vocational preparation. Our teaching units are therefore not subject to the restrictions of the new so-called “lockdown light” and the associated measures which were adopted by the Federal Government on 28 October 2020.

The final examination by the district government is still pending, but until the final decision is made, the training and further training operations at our locations in Cologne-Deutz, Cologne-Ehrenfeld and Sankt-Augustin will continue – with restrictions and now with an even stricter hygiene concept – because participation in our training courses is with a mask!

Here you can find the current course schedule from 02.11.2020, which will be limited to the three main locations. From the Cologne-Deutz location, every teaching unit (!) will be transmitted for you via zoom livestream, so that you can take part in the lessons within your own 4 walls. From now on, we will always have two instructors with us to give you valuable tips for your online lessons via zoom livestream. Education and training must also be allowed to take place in difficult times, because increasing violence and assaults are unfortunately, just like the pandemic, part of our society. Our trainers are tested for Corona and currently renew these tests at least every 14 days.

We ask you to observe our hygiene concept and our rules of conduct.

The online lessons take place via zoom, here the dial-in link.

Participation is only possible for our students. External participants are unfortunately excluded from the lessons. Trial participation will not take place.

In addition, we will put our existing webinar area for students back online.

You can find it here:

The regular children’s and teenager’s lessons are currently not taking place. As a small compensation offer for our youngest children, who are unfortunately also the hardest hit by the restrictions, we give a teaching unit for the children and teenagers outside every Saturday from 12:00 – 12:45 pm in November. In our webinar area you will also find many videos for Krav Maga with your children and teenagers at home.


KRAVolution Krav Maga Civil Full Instructor Course online and offline!

KRAVolution Civil full instructor Course – the EVOLution is a mix of On- and Offline learning!

We currently have interested parties from many countries, who will do a Krav Maga full instructor training with us and are proud of the
Internationality: Krav Maga students from Germany, Switzerland, Maldives, England, Cyprus and Australia would like to participate in our training despite Covid19.

The restrictions on travel by Covid-19 present us, as a worldwide Krav Maga association, with the challenge of maintaining the accustomed quality standard despite the restrictions. For this reason we support our courses with online training. This means that our participants are not only instructed and trained on the mats, but also digitally by our instructors, while they are doing the courses.

With online training it is necessary that each participant has a qualified partner to perform the techniques under the guidance of the KRAVolution world team Instructor. This method gives us the flexibility and security to train in a high quality and according to our standard even under these complex conditions.
At the end of the course, the final test phase will be conducted by the local Country Manager and will also be accompanied by our instructors.

Bodyweight exercise – Train a backward roll into the handstand

Krav Maga Kravolution Instructors backroll webinar


Markus and Carsten show you the training in dealing with your own bodyweight. The reverse role we use here is different from the typical role in selfdefense. So that the technical exercise is also combined with strength training, we show you an option of how to change from a role to a handstand and catapult yourself onto your feet. Of course, you have to have enough space to prevent accidents. We hope you enjoy it.

10.04.20 – 7pm – defense against bearhugs

Krav Maga Instructor bearhugs technique defense

Carsten and Patrick are tired of always having to go to the boxingbag, to lift kettlebells or jump rope to keep fit. So they meet up with scaffolders who are in the process of working. The scaffolding workers hand them both the gloves and then the battle with the heavy steel parts begins. Carsten works upstairs and Patrick carries everything to the car. Both of them do push-ups and chin-ups in between but have a look for yourself, maybe you’ll notice which of the two doesn’t take the “warm-up” quite so seriously. After the warm-up they start with the Krav Maga technique a defense against clutches, which are called Bearhugs, are taken seriously again. The two krav maga instructors run over the material but with a good explaining over the different attacks from the front, from both sides and from behind. The hands are free or not, also with lifting up the defender! As always, it is not only about the technique, but also about the Krav Maga principles. As an attacker Patrick has all hands on the table and has to endure a lot, which Carsten has to face as a defender…so now you know who of the two has to keep himself more fit than the other ;-)!

We´ll support you with all our know-how at the KRAVolution Civil Instructor Course!

If you want to become a Krav Maga Instructor, sign up now and improve yourself at the fastest growing Krav Maga Organisation in the world: KRAVolution.

The goal of our Krav Maga course, which is with over 170 h full-time training one of the most complete and most extensive ones in the whole system, is the deployment of qualified instructors in our instructor team as well as the deployment as Civil Krav Maga Instructor internationally. That´s why the course is held by an international Krav Maga Expert Team and military instructors. To make you the best instructor out there, we deploy the best instructors out there! The Course will be conducted in German and English.

We set new standards with our new concept for the Krav Maga instructor training and want to think out of the box. That´s why we revolutionized the former training. We won´t lie. It´s a hard way from a participant to an instructor and by that to a Krav Maga blackbelt – earned not given. But, if you can make it, you´ll belong to the best educated Krav Maga instructors all over the world.


  • Compressed course with attractive training-times
  • Lessons after principles, not only techniques
  • KRAVolution First Aid specified to instructors
  • Reality based scenario-training to push you to the limit
  • Supervision by international Highest-Level-Instructors, like Megan Cohen Berkman, Jean-Paul Jauffret & Carsten
  • The KRAVolution Krav Maga Curriculum
  • an unprecedented level-testing, where your ability to teach is as important as the right performance. Here you are not tested by one single examiner, but by a testing-committee. The last time it consisted of several active Krav Maga instructors.


You receive a KRAVolution certificate about the successfully passed fulltime-course as a Civil Instructor and the respective patch.


Entrance requirement is to pass the 3-day Assistant Instructor Course beforehand and of course extensive training-experiences – in average at least two years. You can also participate, when you are a martial arts trainer with more than 2 years of teaching experience. But you should prove 1-2 years of regular Krav Maga training then.

The Assistant Instructor Course always takes place from Fridays to Sundays with 25-30 h Krav Maga in total to create the ideal preconditions for the Civil Instructor Course. In addition, you need an impeccable certificate of good conduct. We do not want to teach those, we want to be protected for. We reserve the denial of participants, we think are not suitable. Needless to say, you will get you money back then.

You have the opportunity to complete one or more parts internationally.
