Krav Chats Ep.7 - Gershon Ben Keren
In this episode, Krav Maga Systems Hong Kong Instructor Nils Beiskjær speaks to Gershon Ben Keren. Gershon frequently uses his knowledge on psychology and real-world experience as a security professional to break down and rebuild stagnant paradigms in the Krav Maga and Self-defence Industry.
His aim is to help people bridge the gap between the reality of violence and the framework that makes Krav Maga great.
In this podcast, Gershon addresses this perspective and explains why it's so important to ensure your training (and teaching) is supporting what you can expect to face in a real situation.
A bit about Gershon:
Gershon Ben Keren is a 5th Degree Black Belt with over 20 years of experience in Krav Maga, he's a security professional, a second-degree black belt in Judo, runs his own school (Krav Maga Yashir in Boston, USA), AND has a Masters in Psychology. On top of this, he has authored popular books about Krav Maga.

Krav Chats Ep.2 - Avivit Cohen on Fight quest, being a good instructor & teaching women Krav Maga.
In the second episode of Krav Chats, Krav Maga Systems' senior instructor - Kurt Colpan - talks with Avivit Cohen.
Avivit is arguably one of the most well-known female figures in Krav Maga. If you don't know her by name, then you'll probably know her from the Krav Maga episode of Fight Quest. She takes Doug Anderson through a killer KM crash course.
Though the show portrayed her as a 'crazy Israeli chick', she is far from being that one dimensional. In this podcast you will hear her share her many years of Krav Maga (she's been training since she was 8 years old!) experience for both instructors and students.
You're sure to pick up some great inside tips for best practices in teaching women and kids. This episode is especially great for all the ladies out there who want to hear things from a refreshingly familiar perspective; it may be surprising just how humble Avivit really is.
We hope you enjoy!
