Commando Krav Maga
Ilan Rosenberg, Level 8 CKM, Head Instructor
The Canadian Commando Krav Maga Centre is the main CKM school for all of Canada. Chief Instructor, Ilan Rosenberg having trained with Moni Aizik since the age of twelve first in Judo and Jiujitsu, he was integral in the formation of what Commando Krav Maga is today. In addition to his education with Moni, he has developed his very relevant skills in boxing and mixed martial arts. He became a gold medal champion for Ontario in Judo and Jiujitsu, and continued developing his martial arts skills to compliment his stunt and Extreme Martial Arts training. As a stunt and fight coordinator, some of his films include 300, Red, Pacific Rim, and Robocop.
Throughout his time with Moni, he had been practising what Moni then called “Israeli Martial Arts”. He was developing an evolved form of practical self-defense that would borrow principles from different styles, cutting out anything that would make a technique too complex to be carried out in a real, high-pressure situation. One day, Ilan mentioned to Moni about officially creating a curricullumn to teach around the world. From there they gave Commando Krav Maga its official name and instructor course. CKM is the now globally the most in demand reality based system today!
