Ron Engelman

Chief Instructor


Ron was born in Israel. Living in the city of Netanya (the birthplace of Krav Maga), he grew up training under the grand-masters of Krav Maga. At the age of 18 Ron joined the Israeli Defence Force (IDF) where he served as a sergeant in one of Israel’s renowned combat units. In 2001, under the orders of his commanders, Ron was sent to undergo some of the IDF’s toughest training necessary to become a certified IDF Military Krav Maga Instructor. After completing his military service, Ron decided to bring his skills to civilians and completed certification as a Civilian instructor. In 2005, Ron moved to Australia and founded the Krav Maga Defence Institute (KMDI). Over the course of the next few years, KMDI became the largest and most dominant Krav Maga training organisation in Australia, training thousands of Australians in self defence and certifying some of Australia’s finest Krav Maga instructors.
