Meet the Author

CHRISTOPHE PHILIPPE, French Police Official, discovered Krav Maga in 1994 while taking part in a training program under the tutelage of Richard Douïeb. After being involved with many martial arts and combat sports, he decided to dedicate himself exclusively to Krav Maga, as he is convinced of its effectiveness and considers it to be completely suitable for law enforcement. In 1996, Philippe spent time in Israel to complete his training and was introduced by his teacher, Richard Douïeb, to Imi Lichtenfeld founder of Krav Maga, with whom Philippe shared his plan to introduce this self-defense system to the French Police. Back in France, with the approval of the European Federation of Krav Maga, he instituted introductory training seminars exclusively for law enforcement personnel. In 1999, Christophe Philippe created the Association of Krav MagaPolice (AKMP). Its objective is promote and teach Krav Maga within law enforcement in France. Christophe Philippe continues to teach Krav Maga to police and civilians and to further his own education under the tutelage of Richard Douïeb, the discipline’s official representative in Europe.
