Why I Fight.

As a child, there was one experience beyond any that shaped who I am today. Born to a family of Holocaust survivors, I learnt what it means to be powerless to defend yourself or protect the ones you love.

I came to understand that bad things sometimes do happen to good people and that ultimately, we are the only ones who are responsible for our own safety.

This early experience is what inspired me to learn Krav Maga. It is what motivated me to join the Israeli army, where I still serve today as a commander and senior Krav Maga instructor. And it is why I travel the world teaching self defence to those who need it.

I believe that if enough of us join forces to take responsibility for the safety and wellbeing of those we care about, then together we can build a better world.

My mission to give people tools to take ownership of their safety and inspire them to protect others.
