Darren Levine on Krav Maga Seattle

Here is what Krav Maga Worldwide Chief Instructor and 6th Degree Blackbelt, Darren Levine, has to say about Krav Maga Seattle:

“What sets Krav Maga Seattle apart from other Krav Maga schools is the level of professionalism.  You have to do a number of things to create a successful school: 1) you have to know Krav Maga well, 2) you have to be willing to work to get better at Krav Maga, and 3) you have to be able to deliver it to students so that they can understand and perform it.

Separate from that, you have to have good values.  You have to want to give something to the community, not just do it solely as a business venture.  You have to do it to enrich the people who come in your doors.  That is what Krav Maga Seattle does: they are invested in giving people a true measure of safety, confidence, and physical fitness.  They really care about their students.

With regards to the quality of the Krav Maga, Chau is absolutely one of the most talented instructors we have in the country.  He is very strong and a world-class martial artist.  He is incredibly talented and knowledgeable when it comes to Krav Maga.

I am happy to support Krav Maga Seattle because of the work they’re doing, and I would like to make a prediction: I am sure that Krav Maga Seattle will see significant growth because they’ve got something very special.  They have that good family feeling and they’re doing all of the right things for the right reasons.  It’s a winning combination.”
