Find Your Tribe

hello Tribe (and maybe future tribe),

One of the most important things that I have learned over my last 22 years in business is to not try and be everything to everybody.


It’s a matter of fact, everyone who trains at Krav Maga Martial Arts qualified to be here.

That is, we make sure they’re a good fit for our tribe, and that we are a good fit for them and theirs. 

Then the Basic Training Course (BTC) is where they qualify for Blackbelt Training and beyond!


We are a leadershipo development academy, that also happens to teach the most practical self-defense in the world.

We have a unique and special culture and climate, where people are encouraged and empowered, and all are on a quest to be our best!


We are positive people, and not just my amazing Team of Sensei and staff, but all of the students, family and other tribe members support one another and help motivate each other to better and better, every day in every way!


If this sounds like a tribe you’d like to be a part of, we can’t wait to meet you!

Can’t wait to see you again if you already are!


And if not, find your tribe.

Belonging, connection, accountability and edification are important.

Find your tribe, and be a part of it.


Prepare To Live; Empower To Lead!
