Testimonials

My name is Joey Bendah. During my time as a senior at the University of Arizona, I decided to take classes from Jesse Tucker in krav maga as a means to get me into shape and give me a head-start for my future service in the Israel Defense Forces. After finishing at the UofA, I drafted to the Paratrooper Brigade as an infantryman in the IDF. I began taking krav maga classes twice per week during my basic and advanced training. It is safe for me to say that the techniques that I learned from Jesse are the authentic techniques that are taught to all soldiers in the IDF. In fact, I learned more in-depth details and tactics that I did not have the time to learn in my IDF courses. It is because of my lessons from Jesse in civilian krav maga that today, as a soldier, I have the confidence to use krav maga to my defense in life-or-death situations.
