The 'exposing fake Israeli self-defense instructor blog' is changing the face of the reality martial arts business by exposing the fakes. Thousands of instructors and students have fallen victim to fraud, misrepresentation and illegal activity by some of the biggest names in the business.
The face of reality based martial arts has changed nearly overnight by the efforts of several people who are fighting for the good of the Israeli Martial Arts. Robb Hamic met Israeli Defense Forces Sgt. Major Nir Maman who has been championing the cause of exposing fake and fraudulent Israeli self-defense instructors for several years. Nir introduced Robb to David Kahn, Chief US Representative of the Israeli Krav Maga Association (IKMA) who had also been working on shining the light of truth on the industry. David introduced Robb to people in Israel who wanted to help set the record strait and were tired of Krav Maga bing misrepresented, including former IDF Krav Maga Chief Instructor Boaz Aviram and Grand Master Haim Gidon of the IKMA. "I noticed that many people were trying to expose the truth in a number of different ways but there was no coordinated effort, that is where I came in," says Robb Hamic. Hamic is a self defense instructor, law enforcement trainer and intelligence expert.
Robb Hamic had special insight to two the ranking "offenders" who misrepresented themselves in the public by making false statements about actually training the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) or having their martial arts systems updated by the Israeli Army! These people had made numerous claims in magazines, online, print advertising and verbal statements that his martial art system was "continually updated by the IDF and enhanced through actual combat in Israel." This is a false claim that was proven by the attribution of and history of the IDF and by Sgt. Major Nir Maman, lead Krav Maga Instructor for the IDF's Counter-Terror Unit .
"We had extensive evidence, information and opportunity so we decided to act accordingly to set the record strait," says Hamic. I launched the "Exposing fake Israeli self-defense instructors blog."He has extensive experience as a personal and corporate intelligence specialist and nationally syndicated blogger. Coincidentally, he didn't have enough insight to do background checks before paying over $30,000 in course fees and expenses to the fraudulently represented martial arts systems and their founders. He and his new friends were determined to show unsuspecting people the truth though evidence. "There are other fraudulent Israeli self-defense instructors and we are on their trail. The blog will continue to expose fraud," says Hamic.
"We received over thirteen thousand (13,000) visits to the blog yesterday and the visits grow daily," says Hamic. The team now receives dozens of e-mails, calls and piles of evidence daily. They put it to good use and make sure that the proof doesn't get buried. The pubic has overwhelmingly approved of their efforts. "You are all doing such a great job, risking a lot and standing for the truth," says one faithful blog reader.
Robb Hamic has turned to the Israeli Krav Maga Association for re-training so that he can become a proper Krav Maga instructor. The is attending an instructor's course in Israel this Summer. He was seeking authentic training to add to his skills as a combatitives instructor in the first place. The IKMA also offers instructor and student training in the United States. Hamic cautions other unsuspecting instructors and students to go to the source of information on the subject of Israeli martial arts and combatitives. Nir Maman provides military and law enforcement training throughout the world with his vast amount of experience gained through his service in Israel and service in several armed conflicts/wars. David Kahn provides training based in New Jersey and travels throughout the world teaching and training. Boaz Aviram provides Krav Maga training in Italy and across the globe. he is an accomplished writer on the subject. The Grand Master Haim Gidon (IKMA) resides in Israel and provides certified Krav Maga Instructor training to all candidate instructors in the world.
