Re: Presence of Aikido in Krav Maga?

There are some Aikido techniques and training methods in Krav-Maga.
The founder of Krav Maga - the Late Imi Lichtenfeld. He did not learn Aikido, but one of his top disciples (the Late Mr. Eli Avikzar) went to France, where he learned Aikido and obtained the rank of Shodan. After he returned to Israel, he taught his Krav Maga students and other instructors some Aikido techniques and methods. He named those techniques in Hebrew...

I hope this information is helpful.
