  • Self-defense

    SELF PRO KRAVEvolution

    Developed fifteen yearsago by the internationalexpert JacquesLevinet, whoseachievements inmartial arts andcombat sportsare well knownworldwide, theSELF KRAV or SPKPRO method is one of themost effective and realisticself defense systems exis-ting today throughout theworld. Two videos and abook support this disci-pline. Beyond the simpli-city of its acquisitionand adaptation to allgroups (men, women,children, law enforce-ment), the SPKstrength lies in itsannual updating inorder to adhere to theever changing aggres-sion patterns of ourdays. In CaptainLenivet's opinion, youcan't freeze a martialarts or self defensemethod foreverwithout risking trans-forming it into some-thing obsolete anduseless.

  • Reminder of the origins of SPKThe SELF PRO KRAV stems from the professional experience

    as a police captain and knowledge of fighting techniques of SokeJacques Levinet. Among the many methods of self defense thathe's created, Master Levinet has adapted his police method, theReal Operational System or ROS, with his sound knowledge ofself defense to make it an operational method called SELF PROKRAV: Self for Personal Self Defense, Pro for Professionals andKrav for Combativeness, in Hebrew. However, SPK is NOT a formof Kravmaga; it differs from it in many specific technical aspectsand has a different approach in the field of personal defense andquestioning. Captain Levinet retained the term Krav withoutadhering to Kravmaga, only because of the fighting spirit thatprevails in this discipline. The richness of SPK also comes fromthe numerous seminars, exchanges, training sessions andexperiences that the master has acquired and transmitted to unitsaround the world (Israel, United States, Australia, Japan, SouthAmerica, Canada, Cuba, Japan, Russia and Europe) and hisexchanges with many teachers and experts like Haim Gidon,Gaby Shai, Aaron Elbaze, Jim Wagner, Darren Levine, Vincent Lyn,Taiji Kase, Keinosuke Enoeda, Hiroo Mochizuki, Shirai, DominiqueValera and many others.

    The SPK method includes the following 5 key points:Survival Instinct - Conditioning training - Operational

    technique - Self Defense - EvolutionIn other words: will to survive, means to survive, learning of

    natural gestures, respect for the law and questioning.The SPK is a discipline in itself, recognized internationally by

    the foremost Police experts and the greatest Martial Artsmasters in the world.

    The new SELF PRO KRAV or SELF PRO KRAV EVOLUTIONThe evolution of SPK is mandatory to update it against the

    new ways of aggression. The evolution of SPK is now essentialto keep up with violence. It also comes from a feedback orpermanent return of experiences that victims deliver to thefounder of the discipline.

    The news of SELF PRO KRAV EVOLUTION is: Acquisition of ambidextrous defenses to cope with any

    eventuality (facing a left-handed aggressor, in any position,standing on the floor, sitting, kneeling, hostage taking). SPK Defenses against multiple attackers. Defenses SPK in confined and enclosed environment. Defenses SPK for law enforcement forces. SPK Defenses against unconventional attacks (weapons and

    empty hands). Defenses SPK in low light or darkness. Defenses SPK with everyday life objects (umbrella, pen,

    briefcase, purse, keys, credit cards, cell phone, shoes, jacket,vest, magazine, etc.). Adaptation of the SPK for women and children, since

    attacks against these groups are not the same as attacksamong men.Without going into the details of these areas of development,

    here are some examples of the new SELF PRO KRAVVOLUTION: Percussion training of fists and feet on moving targets,

    complemented by an elbow-knee percussion work on a fixedshield. It doesn't mean that the SPK becomes a combat sport,but it requires a minimum of feet-fists percussion knowledge.The evolution of SPK is mandatory to update it against the

    Self-defense

  • SPK Defenses against multiple attackers. Defenses SPK in confined and enclosed environment. Defenses SPK for law enforcement forces. SPK Defenses against unconventional attacks (weapons and empty

    hands). Defenses SPK in low light or darkness. Defenses SPK with accessories of everyday life (umbrella, pen,

    briefcase, purse, keys, credit cards, cell phone, shoes, jacket, vest,magazine, etc.). Adaptation of the SPK for women and children, since attacks against

    these groups are not the same as attacks among men.Without going into the details of these areas of development, here are

    some examples of the new SELF PRO KRAV VOLUTION: Percussion workout of fists and feet on moving targets, complemented

    by elbow-knee percussion training on a fixed shield. It doesn't mean that theSPK becomes a combat sport, but it requires a minimum of feet-fistspercussion knowledge. Just a few weapon disarmament tricks because such techniques are too

    dangerous against knives, daggers, razors or other blades. Only percussiontechniques are privileged in the SPK to disarm quickly and safely. Using real blunt weapons (sticks, bats) to achieve higher grades and put

    the candidate in a real situation. Using handguns and shoulder guns with gas, blank guns and balls (with

    helmet) for the upper grades to understand the disarmament procedure. Firearms threats are made with real neutralized weapons, maintaining

    the finger on the trigger as do the bullies. Using an aluminum knife to feel the cold and the danger of the blade in

    threats touching the body or throat. Acquisition of a thorough learning to avoid any reflex action and

    complicated technique and keep only the defense reflex.

  • Learning, from the 2nd Dan level, ofambidextrous defenses to assimilate the SPKagainst a lefty or a righty, as appropriate. A primaryacquisition for instructors, who must be able todemonstrate and teach a lefty or righty and takeinto account every type of student.

    Acquisition, from the 2nd Dan, of techniquesfor defending a third person and bodyguardtechniques to train students in protecting theirloved ones or a vulnerable person in case ofaggression. Defenses, from the 5th Dan, with everyday

    common objects, such as umbrellas, sticks, pens,bags, wallets, keys, cell phones, chairs,jackets, glass, footwear, magazines, etc.). Itis important because defending yourself byany means is essential sometimes.

  • Training and affiliation in SELF PRO KRAV Technical Syllabus - With the acquisition of

    grades from yellow belt to black belt and then SPKDan (from first to tenth Dan). Despitebeing sued, the SELF PROKRAV Dan rank has beenrecognized. The SPK hasbecome a trademark with theINPI (National Institute of IndustrialProperty). Access to higher level requires, in all

    grades, a technical test (finishing a defense witha locking technique to check the knowledge ofthe candidate) and a combat test (rapid defenseswithout finishing with a lock to fight in the street). SPK Dans are delivered with the utmost

    seriousness, by an international Grade Commission,respecting the time between grades. All exams takeplace in front of an audience and jury to avoid anycomplacency. No grades by personal recommendation aregranted. Instructor program - For initial and continuing training,

    Instructor, Chief Instructor and SPK Expert. The Academyissues these professional training certificates for itsregistration as a training organization in the Ministry ofLabour in France. The instructor exam tests consist of written technical

    tests and teaching tests. The Academy Jacques Levinettakes into account the ability of candidates and refuses toissue certificates of convenience not to tarnish itscredibility. Morality is required for SPK instructors, whorespect a "gentleman agreement" and a code of ethics. Affiliation program - Instructors from different self

    defense schools, martial arts styles and combat sportsapply constantly to become a member of the AJLInternational Federation for recognition of theirsystems and eventually their rank. An approvalgateway was launched for SELF PRO KRAV, giventhe supporting documentation provided. An online training - Recently, there is an online

    training course for instructors and representatives ofthe Federation of Jacques Levinet, who teach infaraway countries of France. Written programs,video and corrections are made by Internet andSkype under the control of the French expert.

    The Chief Point - Self-defense SPK principles - Captain Jacques Levinet,

    through his training and compliance with the law,evidences in his SELF PRO KRAV method, anabsolute respect for personal defense. It is not justabout knowing the law, but knowing also how toapply it when the defense method is used. It isimportant to provide students with the legal meansso that they can justify their actions in defense.Being able to demonstrate a legitimate defense isnot easy in front of justice; for that reason,practitioners have some memento program to helpthem out.

    Some examples, under penalty of jail, evenas a victim:

    Self-defense

  • Twist a knife against an aggressor, even after havingdisarmed him. Respond with the aggressor's gun, even after having

    disarmed him. Leave your fingerprints on the assailant's gun trigger

    during a bad disarmament (with a disarming technique, forexample). Reply with the aggressors bat, even after having

    disarmed. Use an aggression gesture, like a head butt. Respond to a benign aggression, with a defense to the

    genitals, like a grip. Increase the fist or foot percussion defenses on an

    unarmed assailant on the ground, under penalty of crueltyand failing to comply with the law. Respond in vital areas against a non vital

    aggression.*** In other words, being a victim doesn't justify the

    use of any response. The SELF PRO KRAV warnspractitioners and gives them the legal means tojustify. The end doesn't justify the means.The SPK adaptation to countries: The SPK taught in many countries,

    takes into account their laws and respectthem. For that reason the SPK evolves bycontinents. As a result, certain defenses, banned in

    France or Europe, for example, are perfectlyallowed in some countries.

    SELF PRO KRAV POLICE ModuleThere may be several ways to effectively defend yourself

    irrespective of whether you are a civilian or a cop. Onlypurposes change, hence the reason for the creation of theSELF POR KRAV POLICE module. Here are some aspects ofthe SPK POLICE learning: Use of the equipment weapons for defending oneself in

    compliance with the law. Acquisition of teamwork and protection. SPK POLICE handcuffing, alone and in teams, in allplaces.

    Complementarities of empty hand actions andweapon use.

    Operational Keys of neutralization, alone andin teams. Means of operational driving in emergencies. Basic acquisition of the Police Training ROS

    method associated with the SPK.*** In other words, where the civilian SPK

    ends, begins the police SPK with ownmeans of coercion and

    coercion characteristicof the ROS RealOperational Systemor method of the lawenforcement forces.The SELF PRO

    KRAV POLICE module

  • Self-defense

  • Self-defense

    has gained full acceptance since many policeunits and special units in France (as ERIS) andabroad (such as GAD in Argentina and Spetsnaz inRussia) were trained in SPK Police and ROS byCaptain Jacques Levinet.

    A recognized international fede-ration Through the International Federation of Personal

    Defense and the Police Training AJL, SELF PRO KRAVis present in about fifty representatives in France andabroad (Spain, Austria, Bulgaria, Italy, Luxembourg,Belgium, England, Canary Islands , USA, Ecuador,Argentina, Chile, Canada, Mauritius, the Caribbean Sea,Russia, Siberia, Australia, New Zealand, China, Sri Lanka,Vietnam, Tunisia, Algeria). The official chart of AJLincludes DTN (National Technical Directors), DTR(Regional Technical Directors) and DTD(Departmental Technical Directors). The AJL has a registration number of

    the Ministry of Sport in France and aregistration number in the Ministry ofLabour and much institutionalrecognition worldwide.

    Real SELF PRO KRAV can be seenthrough the identical uniforms worn bythe practitioners in France and the rest ofthe world. The only difference is the colorin the logo of the country and on the beltto emphasize the country's identity. Finally, the curriculum vitae of the

    founder, Captain Jacques Levinet, callsfor a high level of credibility of his AJLfederation.We end this article humbly saying that

    SELF PRO KRAV doesn't intend to be thebest method of self-defense, but amethod of interest.
