In 1948, once Israel had declared its independence, the Israeli Defence Force requested Imi to develop a system of self-defence based on his experience and work with special force units.  During his 20 years of service as chief instructor of hand-to-hand combat, Imi carefully refined the methods of krav maga making it the official combative training for all Israeli military personnel, police, and security forces.
