Amir Perets

Amir Perets is, quite simply, one of the world's leading experts in self-defense.

At the age of 18, he became Israel’s heavyweight marital arts champion, and joined the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF), where he became a Krav Maga and Combat Fitness instructor, and was chosen to certify instructors in their legendary hand-to-hand combat course.

He moved on to serve with the elite IDF Naval Commando Unit – the equivalent of U.S. Navy Seals – and there he literally rewrote the program on Krav Maga and Combat Fitness.

Perets holds 6th degree Black Belt in Krav Maga. In 2009, he was inducted into the Martial Arts Masters Hall of Fame for his outstanding contributions to the military, law enforcement and world of martial arts.
