Lions Krav Maga

Lions Krav Maga


Hey folks, Charlie and I are hitting up Genuine Joes for a moment before Section 1 seminars. Anyone is welcome to come meet us before it starts at 2
I guess it was only a matter of time before there was a BJJ rap:

cc: Lions Krav Maga
So awesome to have gotten to see my Lions family tonight and witness some truly intense match ups at the Gold on Gold Grapplers Cup! As everyone could tell I was waaaayyyy into it.

I'm so proud of everyone there and can't wait to come visit you all again soon!
Lions Krav Maga is hosting a self-defense seminar open to all this Saturday, January 4th. It's only $10 to sign up, and all the profits benefit Dress for Success Austin! Let's keep ourselves safe this year, ladies!
Super excited to come visit my Lions family tonight at open mat!

Gif it up if you're gonna be there!
Hey guys,

Some thing just came up and I won’t be able to make class tonight. Apologies for the late notice. If you can make it, please let the front desk person know you are subbing for me.


Soooooo....I'm gonna make a thing happen and try to join you guys on the ground tomorrow night!

I wonder who I'll get to see!
I saw this quote today and thought of [all of] us. When I first signed up, Vanessa could tell I was very timid and lacked self-confidence - going through a very tough time mentally and physically. About a month ago she pointed this out to me after class and I thought, "wow, I really did come a long way, mentally". I'm unable to attend class as much as I would like but I'm looking to switching jobs soon so I can do more things that I LOVE to do, like TRAIN! But this quote resonated with me.
Because attacks like the one at the Blunn Creek Greenbelt can happen everywhere, KVUE met with Lions Krav Maga to find out what to do if someone comes after you.
I’m super duper stoked for this! Austin, Texas ARE YOU READY! 3 great events, 1 spectacular weekend! I roll into town Thursday April 25th and am a guest speaker and seminar clinician at the Paleo f(x) Expo Friday April 26th then competing at the Onnit World Open brought to you by 10th Planet Austin April 27th at the Palmer Events Center during the Paleo FX expo as well! Catch me again on Sunday April 28th at Lions Krav Maga for my Dynamic Striking Muay Thai seminar before I head back home to Tucson Sunday night!

Trust your intuition!!

If your gut tells you to leave, listen to it. You are allowed to get up & peace out for no other reason other than that you feel like it. You’re not obligated to rationalize your actions to anyone. Who cares if someone thinks you behaved strangely or were overreacting as long as you get home safe?

Trust your gut. It could save your life.

As per usual, we will all head over to Nosh & Bevvy (8440 Burnet) afterwards to celebrate those who survived one of the most grueling challenges of their adult lives. 🦾

A special thanks to for all there help in my latest video!



I think the important thing here is not that this is the most beautiful home-made Twister game ever & that you get to play it with us on Saturday night at our birthday party…

The most important thing about this video is that we all get to witness Mark Myers’s strategy to, like, 1-legged Spider-Man plank to reach the green dot instead of just pulling a Michaela & crab walking it to the green dot right next to his other hand. 😆

Party starts at 6pm this Saturday at Lions! Bring socks if you wanna play Twistaaaa!!

So you’re considering testing for your next rank . . .

Congratulations! My first Krav Maga test was one of the best experiences of my life – passing is an accomplishment that I will always be proud of.

As I was preparing for my test, I got a ton of advice from those who have gone before me, so I thought I’d pay it forward & share what tips & tricks I’ve learned along the way.

So, I wrote a little blog post for ya with all the stuff I did to ensure that I had a successful first test experience. Read it here:


Y’all ready to party?
