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.
