Joe has been practicing Krav Maga for the better part of 9 years. Joe got his start at the largest Krav Maga Gym in central Ohio at the time in late 2011. Joe began instructing in 2016 at a local Krav Maga gym and earned his Black Belt with the United States Krav Maga Association in 2017 and later earned his 2nd Degree in 2018. Joe has a passion for child safety and teaching children Krav Maga and principles of discipline to keep Krav Maga as a defense option for kids. Joe currently serves as the chief instructor of our Kids Krav Maga Program. Joe has acquired knowledge through several different systems over his tenure as a practitioner and instructor. These systems include: Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Martial Blade Concepts, Boxing, and Muay Thai. He is currently Co-owner of Buckeye Self Defense.
Jack started his martial arts journey at the OSU Shotokan Karate Club where he earned his brown belt in the late '80's. Eager for training that was less traditional and more practical he began working out at the International Martial Arts Academy of Columbus learning elements of boxing, grappling, and stick and knife fighting. After hearing a friend's recommendation about the attributes of Krav Maga, Jack joined a gym in Gahanna and hasn't looked back. He has been instructing now for several years at local Krav gyms and community groups with his passion for helping people learn to stay safe. He is Co-owner of Buckeye Self Defense, and a Level 4 Krav practitioner.
The number of techniques is kept to a minimum so you can master them in a matter of months rather than years. The defenses are designed to rely on gross-motor movements, which means they’ll work under pressure in a real fight. Most important, the entire program was created as a lawful self-defense system, one that teaches legally defensible responses to attacks.
Simply put, there’s no better self-defense system or course in existence. If you’ve never taken a martial arts lesson in your life, no problem! We cover everything you need to know from the ground up. If you’ve trained in a traditional martial art for years or even decades, we won’t try to get you to abandon your roots. Instead, we’ll tell you how your current skills fit into this system and how you can tweak them for maximum effectiveness on the street.
