Israeli tactical school is the US's leading Israeli counter terrorism academy that provides cutting edge knowledge for civilians and professionals.


Its mission is to serve the community by providing effective, to-the-point self-defense techniques.


The goal of the Israeli Tactical School is to teach responsible citizens and professionals the Israeli Secret service counter-terrorism technique proven for decades in the war against terror. The program fits perfectly with home/self defense challenges and teaches you to handle real life scenarios, such as: home invasion, family under threat, hostage situation, night shooting and more. The school uses state of the art training techniques such as Tactical video shooting (TM) (real size moving targets projected as scenario on a screen in every room you clear) to teach you decision making, along with tactical movement shooting using rooms, doors, hallways and even interior decor.

In our program we focus on tactical shooting together with Krav Maga and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu which allows our students to confidently face the enemy in any given situation. The step-by-step program is designed especially for beginners even without prior experience with shooting or martial arts. The school uses strict rules for personal and property safety, providing customers with an absolutely safe environment and one-on-one guidance.
