Krav Maga
The Hebrew "Krav Maga" roughly translates to "Contact Combat" and was originally developed by Imi Lichtenfeld in the mid-to-late 1930s, who later introduced it to the Israeli military where it is still in use today as the official self-defence and hand-to-hand combat system.

Krav Maga has since been adopted by the Israeli police and numerous military, law enforcement and VIP protection organisations around the world, and is now being taught to thousands of civilians who recognise it as the most effective way of defending themselves in an increasingly unpredictable society.
KAPAP is a close-quarter combat system developed in the 1930s and used by the Haganah paramilitary, which formed the core of the Israeli Defence Force today. KAPAP is an acronym of "Krav Panim El Panim" which, again, roughly translates to "Face To Face Combat", and has been constantly developed using a combination of styles including Judo, Boxing, Ju-Jitsu, and Armed Combat, and has been adapted for all applications from the armed forces to civilian self-defence.
