To clarify on the above post, here is the message that was sent to the members of the Israeli Krav International. There was no malice intended in this message. It was just to inform the members of what occurred and hope that it would never happen to anyone else. I had nothing to gain from this and everything to lose. I have been removed from the Instructors list of the IKI and banned from receiving anything else from the organization, even though my dues are current and I have two instructor certificates signed by Moshe Katz.
I hope this gives a heads up to any potential members/followers of this guy. More correspondence will follow.
To the IKI Members,
Some of you may know me and some of you I consider friends.
I want to state before anything else, that I considered Moshe Katz a good friend and mentor. I enjoyed being a member of the IKI and I felt a family atmosphere unlike any other organization, apart from the Police Department. It really is something unique in the world of martial arts.
The reason I am writing this is to inform all of you of my departure from the organization.
Over a week ago, my father passed away. Pretty sad indeed. He was my best friend and someone I always looked up to. I will miss him. The day after my father passed away, we were scheduled to host a two day seminar with Moshe. I felt that even though I was in the midst of family turmoil, I needed to press on and present the seminar, We had numerous IKI members from all over the country attending. So we continued on with the seminar, as Dad would have wanted me to continue with my work.
Moshe arrived and gave me his condolences. Six hours later, he was having an affair with my wife in the hotel I paid for. Pretty bad timing. Now, I know that there are two-way streets and I hold my wife responsible for many things. That is between her and I. But, as the head of an International Organization, who profounds himself as a man of religion, morals and ethics, I find this behavior to be reprehensible, disgusting and unforgivable. Especially the day after one of your instructors parents passed away. After denying it, Moshe finally apologized. Little does he know what he did to three small children and an entire family and school. The damage my be permanent. It appears that he had been pursuing this for some time, without my knowledge. I discovered the emails from him to my wife after the fact.
I have thought on this matter and was finally told by a friend of the organization to tell my fellow members. Moshe has already said that I am delusional, but I have the emails. If anyone needs clarification, please feel free to contact me.
I know many of you have a vested interest in the IKI and I support you all for that. It is a great system. But take it from me, do not follow anyone blindly.
I could say more, but I will not let my anger get the better of me. I wish you all the best of luck and continued success.
