“I don’t train because I want to be the biggest, baddest guy in the room. I train because I want to be able to defend myself and my family, but I also train so that I never have to. I want that for my students as well.
Imi said, ‘. . . so that one may walk in peace.’ I think that everyone deserves that. . . to feel safe. . . to walk in peace. Krav Maga can give that to them.
My students are the biggest motivator for me to keep training and to keep learning. I want to give everyone that walks into class that peace of mind that comes from learning self defense.”
“Jason is a terrific instructor and he really motivates people to be better. He is really good at helping you draw a line between what you are learning and the real life applicability. He is also really good at helping people leverage their physical abilities to be successful with every technique. If you are smaller, shorter, weaker, taller or whatever it might be, he can show you how to utilize your physical abilities to your best advantage. He is also very knowledgeable at working through any injuries or issues people may be having.”-Rebecca A. Executive Director Services
