Zack Hernandez

Ground Fighting Instructor


Originally hailing from Oahu, Hawaii, Zack is a Division 1 NCAA championship level wrestler and a black belt in Judo.  A three-year starter and captain of the wrestling team at Columbia University, he is also the owner and founder of Ancient Elite Performance (AEP), a company that specializes in health and performance coaching for combat sport athletes.  He recently authored the book Train Like a Savage Eat Like a Caveman, now available on Amazon.

When he’s not wrestling, coaching wrestling, or designing sick AEP swag, Zack is a Senior Business Development Manager at CVPartners

In his role at KMS, Zack teaches our existing Intro to Ground program as well as more advanced ground classes.  Zack leverages the Krav Maga principles in conjunction with his extensive experience in wrestling, Judo, and other ground fighting techniques to bring a best-in-class ground fighting program to KMS.
