Hi. I’m Rabbi Michoel Shapiro, founder of the Krav Combat Academy (a.k.a., “The Fighting Rabbi”).
Certified instructor under Grandmaster Rhon Mizrachi’s Krav Maga Federation

Alumnus of Moshe Katz’s Israeli Krav International organization
Attacks in the street. Hate crime. Domestic abuse. Bullying. Sexual assault. Mass shootings. Terrorism. Sadly, these are daily events in today’s world.
BUT YOU DON’T NEED TO BE A VICTIM.
Like you, I believe all good people deserve to live safely and securely. Unfortunately, most are unprepared to defend themselves if threatened with harm and they don’t know where to find quality self-defense training. At the Krav Combat Academy (KCA), you’ll learn combat-proven skills to protect yourself and your loved ones from violence, so that in the face of a threat YOU WILL PREVAIL.
YOU ARE WORTH PROTECTING.
“Krav” is the ancient biblical Hebrew word for “combat.” KCA training combines the methods of leading military hand-to-hand combat systems from across the world. This is not MMA or some similar competition sport. KCA teaches tactics that have been tested on the battlefield and applied to the streets of civilian life. You will learn proactive ways to avoid conflict and highly effective self-defense skills to overcome a criminal assault—even against stronger, well-trained, and multiple armed attackers.
BE STRONG, BE WISE, BE SAFE!
For over 20 years, I have taught students of all ages and backgrounds to protect themselves and their loved ones from violence. If you’re interested in a workshop in your community, scheduling a group class, or in private lessons for you or your family, let’s get in touch:

“How are KCA classes different from other forms of martial arts?”
Master techniques that work in the street—not just in the dojo.
At KCA, you will learn no-nonsense military skills to counter extreme violence in the street. Traditional martial arts classes that focus on tournament style training and sportsmanship do not prepare you for reality. In reality, people who truly wish to harm you will NOT abide by rules or “fight fair.” KCA teaches you to rapidly neutralize a criminal assault through methods that have been proven on the battlefield.
Learn how to defend yourself—and not go to jail for doing it.
Overcoming a violent encounter involves much more than physically defending yourself. When the battle is over, a legal war with long-term consequences may be just beginning. To truly prevail means that you return safely home with a clear conscience, not land in jail or lose everything you own by unintentionally breaking the law. At KCA, you will learn the lawful use of force and its ethical application.
Develop the most crucial kind of strength—the mindset to prevail.
Cultivating a warrior mindset is the essence of self-protection. Proper training goes beyond learning a set of strategies or techniques—the most important element is to prepare mentally and emotionally for the harsh realities of actual violence. At KCA, you will build the inner strength and confidence to enforce the word “NO” against anyone who threatens your life or the lives of those you love.
