The largest Krav Maga centre in Australia

April 26, 2016
00:0000:00


Avi Yemini, Founder of IDF Training that specialises in authentic Israeli Krav Maga joins eHealth Radio and the Health News Channel.


Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & Avi Yemini discuss the following:

  • What is Krav Maga?
  • Is it really as effective as it's hyped up to be?
  • Who can learn it?
  • Are there a difference between different Krav Maga organisations?
  • Where can people find authentic Krav Maga?


Duration: 6:06


I grew up in an ultra-orthodox Jewish home of 17 children. I was born the night my parents moved from Sydney to Melbourne. They drove interstate in a van with nine children, when my mother was nine months pregnant and I was born as soon as they drove into Melbourne.


Our family was ruled by an abusive and narcissistic father who used systematic violence and a distorted and warped interpretation of religion to control, manipulate and ultimately traumatize for over 30 years. I was kicked out of home at 13 years old and spent time on the streets, in group homes and foster care. I ended up addicted to heroin and often found myself in trouble with the law.


At nineteen I volunteered to join the Israel Defence Force in a bid to kick my addiction and do something meaningful with my life. My time as a Golani sharpshooter changed me and the experience of finally belonging to something that felt like a family helped turn things around for me.


After serving almost 3 years in the Gaza Strip I returned to Australia to marry the love of my life and start my own gym which today is known as the largest Krav Maga centre in Australia. Small business, marriage, raising two step-children and two of my own children have humbled me and given me everything I now live for. I have returned to the community I grew up in and reconnected with many who took me in and helped me out when I was abandoned by my parents.


I now have a beautiful family and am often asked to comment on issues relating to self defence, counter-terrorism, being pro-Israel in Australia and the Jewish community in Melbourne. I’ve publicly shared my story about heroin addiction and the full story of my abusive childhood numerous times with a variety of different audiences, both adult and adolescent.
