I began training with Korean martial arts, including Tae Kwon Do and Soo Bahk Do, and in 2003 earned my 1st Degree Black Belt in Soo Bahk Do. The main reason I began taking martial arts was that I wanted to be able to defend myself. In 2002, I found Krav Maga and started training. Enjoying the beauty and traditions of martial arts and the natural instincts and more explosive fighting techniques from Krav Maga, I continued to cross train in both systems until 2007 when I earned my civilian instructor certification.

I have trained all over the world with some of the best and most experienced instructors including the founders of IKMF (International Krav Maga Federation). In May 2015, I tested for my Expert rank in Israel. Two years later, I earned Expert 2. I believe Krav Maga is the most effective system for self-defense and love to see the transformation in students. I am certified to teach civilian, kids, women, third-party protection, and law enforcement.

I first started training in Krav Maga in my first year of high school because I wanted to learn how to defend myself. Without intention, I ended up making Krav Maga a regular part of my life. Not only is the tactical knowledge a great aspect, but the engaging and physical workout that comes with a class as well. I started helping my mom, an experienced instructor, teach during the women's seminars and soon found that teaching was even more rewarding. Going through CIC I learned so much on what it means to not only be a teacher but a student as well. I believe everyone should have the confidence to walk alone and stand tall.

I had some previous martial arts experience but I never felt that it helped me for the street. When I discovered Krav Maga in 2013, I knew from the first class that this was for me. I knew I wanted to be the best version myself and wanted to share the passion of teaching others to protect and defend themselves. It is simple, logical, and based on pure natural instincts. Earlier this year, I attended my first Civilian Instructor Course and recently successfully completed my second part with Megan Cohen Berkman. My goal is to empower and inspire anyone who wants to learn.

Since I first was introduced to Krav Maga, I liked the simplicity of it and that it is designed for everyone, no matter what your skills are. Throughout the years, I have travelled all over to learn more about Krav Maga and the best part is the friendships that I have formed and the sense of belonging to a big Krav Maga family. I have worked with kids and women since I became an instructor and my goal is to empower anyone who wants to learn and make them see all the opportunities that are available.

I was first introduced to Krav Maga as a teenager living in Israel. The practicality aspect and no-nonsense approach immediately won me over and I wanted to learn more. As a practitioner perusing teaching certification in Krav Maga, I intend to use my knowledge for outreach and empowerment. I want to help individuals discover their inner strength though training and mentoring.
