Tim got involved with Krav Maga because on October 1st, 2012, his birthday, he made a promise to himself to change his lifestyle from the sedentary, fast-food laden, pack of cigarettes a day rut he was in to a more healthy and active lifestyle.
A little after a month into running and lifting, he found himself becoming bored with it like many others that have switch to XKM. Tim was still motivated, but a lack of variety was frustrating. A quick google search brought up Xtreme Krav Maga & Fitness St. Louis and the rest is history. He was accepted into XKM’s Apprentice Instructor program in February 2014 and was Phase A certified in May 2014 and he hasn’t looked back.
“Becoming an instructor has been one of the most rewarding things I’ve ever done, and I love knowing that I’m helping people achieve their fitness and self-defense goals.”
I’ve been training at Xtreme Krav Maga & Fitness for over 2 years, and since day 1 they have been one of the most welcoming, friendly, and knowledgeable gyms I’ve ever attended. I came in with literally zero knowledge of Krav Maga and fighting and I never felt judged or uncomfortable. The instructors are patient and skilled and take the time to make the class a challenge for all skill levels. You can train as hard as you want to achieve your personal goals. Not only do I now feel more confident, but the classes are a great work out for the whole body. I highly recommend it to anyone looking to learn
The instructors and students are all really helpful with newcomers. I've been going for a month, two times a week, and have left every class feeling great! I've learned so many new techniques and have gained more confidence, which is awesome!
