Editorial Reviews


"The approaches highlighted in Gershon Ben Keren's Krav Maga book provide simple, effective solutions to common and complex attacks…Whilst no book can replace ongoing, supervised reality-based training, this book provides a valuable reference for anyone serious about self-protection. Gershon has sought out and trained with many of Israel's leading self-defense experts and combined his findings with his experiences in the military, private security industry and a successful martial arts career to produce an effective approach that is in line with best practices and proven techniques. This book should be a part of any serious martial arts and self-defense practitioner's reference library." —Dr Gavriel Schneider 6th Dan, author of Beyond the Bodyguard and Head of System for Gendai Ryu and the Modern Warrior Alliance

"As an ex-military intelligence operator with Special Forces units I expect the highest standards from the self-defense school I choose. I have trained under Gershon for the last nine years and continue, with his encouragement, to explore other martial arts and self-defense systems although I have yet to find any as complete, thoughtful and practical as his. Gershon is more than just a self-defense instructor, he thinks about and tests his theories under the harshest conditions and deeply cares about his system and students." —SR, Private Security Contractor

"As a professional security consultant, I have worked for the UK and US governments providing protective services to diplomats and military officers. Prior to this I served in the UK military on Special Duties. Whilst in this unit, I was keen on learning more close quarters combative techniques, and this search took me to Krav Maga, where I met Gershon. His training, methodology and knowledge not just of the physical side of violence but the mental side of it, made me take notice. I have happily worked alongside Gershon, and his training methods and ideas are continually developing. This makes him one of the most knowledgeable personal defense experts I know." —David Ashworth, Professional Security Consultant

"Gershon is an excellent instructor. He teaches reality-based scenario techniques that are far more productive outside the studio than many martial arts available today. Gershon's expertise will also get you into the proper mindset for effective self defense. I have practiced various martial arts and I'm a former marine, but no one has prepared me better for personal security on the street than Gershon. Every class I attend I learn something new. He teaches aggressive, hardcore, comprehensive skills that give you the confidence you need to handle yourself if you're ever in danger. His credibility and knowledge of personal security have taught viewers of local newscasts to become more self-aware." —Jarrod Holbrook, Television News correspondent

"The material it covers is good, solid self defense. And again, you can easily find a way to incorporate this information into your own training. If you call your martial art, self-defense based, then you should be able to recognize all the good information presented in this book." —J. Wilson, Martial Thoughts blog

"The book is a great guide to Krav Maga, how to defend yourself and when you should do so. Very worth a read, because one day something in it could save you, or your loved ones lives." —Martial Arts Lab blog

"I recommend this book for combatant instructors, martial arts enthusiasts, and laypeople with an interest in learning self-defense techniques" —Maj. John L. Hewitt, US Army, Military Review
