My favorite part of the summer is fast approaching! As an instructor at Krav Camp, I always enjoy meeting new people and teaching Jiu Jitsu and self-defense. No egos. No politics. Just great training! As they put it… 3 days, 2 fists, no experience necessary. All training is principle based. Whether you’re a martial artist, competition shooter or new to the whole thing. You’ll love it.
Krav Camp is an annual event that attracts Krav Maga, Jiu Jitsu, combatives, self-defense, and firearm enthusiasts from all over the country. The event is held on hundreds of acres of land in Sugar Run, PA, and offers attendees the opportunity to learn from some of the best instructors in the country. Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned pro, Krav Camp is the perfect place to hone your skills and learn new techniques.
Hosted each year by Ernie & Anne Kirk and Paul Landreth-Smith. Ernie and Anne are well-respected leaders in the field of Krav Maga and run Kirk’s Krav Maga in West Chester. Their experience is evident in the quality of instruction at Krav Camp each year. Paul is a seasoned instructor and former police officer. He has a wealth of knowledge to share, from kickboxing and Krav Maga to trauma care and firearms. He is also the author of a fantastic book titled Sheepdog With A Black Belt.
As always, I really look forward to training with one of my favorite instructors, Tzviel ‘BK’ Blankchtein. BK served in the Israeli Defense Forces as an infantry reconnaissance team member. BK’s expertise includes firearms, tactical operations, hand-to-hand combat, amphibious assaults, operational security in hostile areas, intelligence and counter-intelligence operations.
Today, BK is a police officer and runs Masada Tactical, specializing in tactical training, self-defense/defensive-tactics, and security and protective services. BK’s company is considered a leader in reality-based training for law-enforcement, military, security companies, and civilians. I’ve had the opportunity to train with BK several times over the years and he’s simply one of the best.
That’s just a small sample of the mix of instructors at Krav Camp, ensuring that there is something for everyone, regardless of experience level. There are a plethora of classes offered every year. Jiu Jitsu, Krav Maga, rifle, handgun, weapon disarms, striking, etc.
Every year, I am amazed at the level of dedication and commitment that attendees bring to the camp. It is truly inspiring to see such a diverse group of people working together and supporting one another. I am confident that attendees will leave Krav Camp 2022 with a renewed sense of confidence and empowerment.
Krav Camp takes place August 19th-21st. If you’re going, drop in to one of my classes!
