KAPAP "I.K.A." (International  Kapap  Association)



kapap means "face to face combat"

we have been very active in the past few years, building an impressive kapap network, especially in europe (france, italy, poland, russia, israel, spain, usa…) , & participate in different seminars worldwide with different organization of different styles (bas rutten academy, gracie bjj family...etc) to ever extend they knowledge in order to involve themselves trough kapap. 
knowledge they share with civilian & military organizations as well as “elite” special forces as per their heavy involvement in close protection & security industry. 

"kapap" is a military doctrine combat system, made up of a combination of several fighting styles such as boxing, judo, jujitsu, combat with knife, gun and rifle. the emphasis is put on fighting empty handed against each of these weapons, and weapon against weapon. 
kapap is suitable for all fighting fields and enables the warrior to overcome any kind of fighting and prepares him to almost any possible situation. it is neither a sport nor is it competitive; it is not a martial art either. 
that is a great mean of self-defense. the kapap warrior is a fast, precise and lethal fighting machine.


kapap is made suitable to different levels of the learners: children, teenagers, adults, policemen, soldiers, security and armed forces personnel and bodyguards. each group has to follow and master a specific syllabus. 
a kapap person is not a fighter (competitive fighter); he is a warrior (man of war) literally. he is prepared for any situation against any kind of weapon. he will know how to defend himself and his surroundings against any form of attack which puts him or his environment in danger. he will be able, shall the need come up, to operate different kinds of weapons and firearms. he will do so with excellent skill. 
after 1999 kapap started being taught in an organized manner to the world. this happened after many years in which other kinds of combat styles ruled, such as: krav maga”, karate and judo, instructed throughout the world mainly for the purpose of sports competitions. these martial arts lost their fighting effect and became soft in order to meet the needs of those competitions. 
kapap came back in light of the terrible security situation and street crime which created the need for real self-defense techniques. 

a kapap warrior knows he will never compete, never receive a medal or trophy when he overcomes an opponent. however, he will gain his life which is the true reward. "
