Or, venture out just a few paces and immerse yourself in the vibrant tourist atmosphere that is Eilat’s boardwalk, Ice Mall and all they entail.

A Night to Remember:

One night only! Connect to the land, nature and yourselves on an overnight stay at Kfar Hanokdim, located in the heart of the Judean Desert, where hospitality is a truly unique experience. Prepare to sleep in tents, sample Bedouin delicacies and ride camels. Disconnecting from the hustle and bustle of city life has never been so simple, or so intuitive!

Take full advantage of vast expanses of the southern desert region to fully immerse yourself in the demanding combat course. We’ll be based in Eilat, Israel’s ultimate tourist hotspot and the country’s unofficial riviera town, where you’ll find may attractions and amenities to enjoy in between sessions, but will also be able to disconnect, commune with nature and hone your skills like never before.

Israel is one of the safest countries in the world! Our local crime rates are among the world’s lowest, and the prevalence of terror attacks on Israeli soil are near negligible. Eilat, the southern tourist city our camp is run out of is extremely safe – and disconnected from any potentially conflict-ridden zone.

Camp participants receive a certificate stating that they have “Completed an XFighting camp” at the end of the program, provided that they have met XFighting’s standards and criteri physical, behavioral and moral, which all members of our community are required to uphold.

The camp is highly intensive, but you don’t need to be in outstanding physical shape. If you regularly train in the martial arts and are in good health, this is the camp for you.

We will do everything in our power to keep you from quitting – by leveraging the power of our community. We start as a group and end as a group. That being said, we will never force anyone to remain in the program.

Certainly! Eilat is the ultimate vacation city. We will be staying at a central hotel within walking distance of the sea, shopping centers and attractions.
