Are you wanting to join the IDF (Israeli Defense Force)?

IDF Training has grown to be the largest Krav Maga centre in Australia and we often receive enquiries about the process of volunteering to join the IDF in the fight to protect Israel’s safety.

If you are interested in joining the IDF, simply fill out the application form below to join our training program. Once accepted, this program will help you through the process by preparing you physically for your journey.

IDF Training was founded in 2008 by Avi Yemini, an ex-Israeli army combat fighter. We are a full time Krav Maga, self defence and fitness training gym with classes and private training running 7 days a week.

Krav Maga is the official hand to hand combat system of the Israeli Defense Forces and the main focus at our gym. Our connection to Israel and the IDF is deeper than just the name we chose for our gym – it is what gives meaning, depth and purpose to everything we practice and teach.

Our founder Avi, has had first hand experience with the extremely high standards that IDF soldiers are held to whilst facing impossible challenges that no other country faces today, during his time serving in the Golani Brigade, and has also personally gone through the process of applying to join the IDF as a lone soldier from Australia.

Israel is faced with constant threats to, and attacks on her citizens lives and we’ve always been vocal and unapologetic about our unwavering support for Israel’s right to defend herself.

Israel shares important values with Australia as the ONLY free and democratic state in the middle east and a longstanding Australian ally.

If you’re wanting to join the IDF, we want to support you on your journey. Good armies need good soldiers now, more than ever.
