Mandatory Innovation

Have you heard of Krav Maga?

If you have, that’s really cool. If you haven’t, then you’ve seen Matt Damon use Krav Maga to kick butt in the Jason Bourne movies.

Krav Maga is a fighting technique that is practiced all over the world. It originated in Europe but was refined in Israel, where the International Krav Maga Federation is located. What’s interesting is that Krav Maga is taught to every Israeli soldier. And every civilian.

Remember that in Israel, every citizen goes through basic military training.

This got me thinking as I was watching the Human Weapon episode of Krav Maga. Just like it’s mandatory for Israeli’s to go through basic military training, what if we made it mandatory to teach every civilian entrepreneurship?

Sounds crazy right?
