The development of OKM started in 1982 being Gabi Shai an instructor in the National Security and Combat Academy of the Israeli Security Agency as a results of an operational failure. Failure that demonstrated that the traditional methodology of operational training is not the right answer for the continuous changing of the adversary's "Modus Operandi".
From 1982 until 1996 additional concepts and operational fundaments have been developed and successfully implemented into practice, such as the integration, in the same training session, between the various operational abilities, unarmed and armed combat skills. Integration that has led to very positive results in real situations.
Starting in 1996 with his retirement from active duty, Gabi has continued the development of this particular philosophy, institutionalizing the OKM and transforming it into a unique training methodology which closes the gap between the modern concepts of Proactive Security and the changing operational requirements that happen due to the continually changing nature of global terror and urban violence.
In the last decade, with the opening of the fundamentals of OKM for the civilian market, the Advanced Methodology for Operational Training offers a wide range of professional solutions that optimizes the training process, transforming it into a unique, effective and functional professional experience, helping our civil and professional practitioners to improve their quality of life, through the development of the most varied abilities so necessary for survival in the modern jungle
