THE OFFICIAL WEBSITE

The original KAPAP system was developed in the late 1930s, within the Jewish Aliyah camps as part of the preparatory training system before the arrival of the British Mandate of Palestine.

The Palmach and Haganah used KAPAP as an ongoing combat development program for their recruits. Today KAPAP has been re-developed and re-defined to be one of the most formidable defensive systems in the world. British Kapap works alongside many other organisations both in Israel and across the globe to make sure we keep this system relevant, up-to-date and tested under every condition.

NETWORKING PARTNERS

Our non-political, no-ego network, allows other organisations to work with and along side us, without changing names, or having to belong to the same group. Other organisations have found this a great platform to work with.  If your organisation or club wishes to be part of our global network and wishes to just swap knowledge and learn from each other, please email us for more info.
 

2011

British Kapap was formed by Adrian Valman and two police officers from the UK after meeting and training together on a self defence course. We became members of the British Combat Association and organised seminars for the 'PFOA' Police Firearms Officers Association.

2012

British Kapap had grown from a small group to expanding across Europe. Many changes had to be made to deal with the sudden growth. We started travelling across Europe and began working with some large organisations cross teaching our systems of self defence.

2013

British Kapap became recognised Internationaly, with instructors and representatives in Europe and beyond. BKA is now across several countries in Europe and still expanding. We are now working together with the WKMF and FKMI to expand Kapap even further.

2014

British Kapap formed a Network in 2013, this was called 'Global Kapap' this network has spread across Europe and beyond, opening the door for many other organisations to work with us, cross teaching and forming a family, a brotherhood of teachers and students working together for the same goal.

2015

British Kapap has been operating for 5 years across Europe and the UK and is going to the Far East, Indonesia in January 2015, to open it's first Kapap Club in Asia. British Kapap has expanded to Sri Lanka and will also, later this year be co-operating with some amazing Israeli organisations.

2016

We will be joining forces with other international organisations to form a brotherhood of NO EGO, NO POLITICS, JUST TRAINING. The BKA continues to grow with training now back in Israel and also spreading across a few new countries in 2016. This year coming we will see a few good changes.

2017

In 2017 we look forward to working together with the IDSA & FKMI in Italy. We move into our 7th year with growth and knowledge, training and updating KAPAP/CQB with Amit Himelstein direct from Israel as well as working with many other instructors and organisations around the world to improve knowledge and friendships.
