Chuck Garibay

Senior Krav Maga Instructor


Chuck is a Krav Maga Worldwide Expert 1 (Blue Belt) and Law Enforcement certified instructor.  He started training in Krav Maga in 2012 and began teaching in 2013.  Before becoming involved in Krav Maga, Chuck wrestled for six years and coached youth and high school wrestling for five seasons.

As someone who describes his upbringing as “colorful”, Chuck was drawn to Krav Maga because he wanted to feel more confident in his daily life.  He felt vulnerable in crowds and wanted to feel sure that he could handle any situation, especially an altercation.

Chuck loves Krav Maga because, as the trainee, you become empowered, more confident, more aware, fitter, and mentally stronger.  In every class, you test yourself by overcoming new challenges.

Chuck joined the KMS team because of the positive community feel, the top-quality training for both members and instructors, and the opportunities for growth and development.

When Chuck’s not smashing the pads or lifting heavy things, you’ll find him crushing some sushi with his wife and hanging with his wolf-dog, Riley.
