At Katalyst Krav Maga, we believe that everyone deserves to feel safe and confident. That’s why we offer martial arts classes for teens and adults of all skill levels, taught by our experienced and certified instructor.
Our head instructor, David Bergman, is a Krav Maga Israel Level II certified instructor and Krav Maga Israel Black Belt. David is passionate about helping people learn Krav Maga and always looking for new and innovative ways to teach.
Looking back at my motivation to start martial arts I realize that I needed to answer the question “do I have what it takes”. I instinctively knew that I needed to be challenged physically and mentally. I saw in the martial arts a way to deliver that challenge. It was the same question “do I have what it takes” that led me to make 3 trips to Tel-Aviv and devote 190 hours of training time to become the first certified Krav Maga Israel instructor on the East Coast.
Over my decade of experience as an instructor, I have trained hundreds of students from age 3 to 63 and have a deep love for encouraging people in the pursuit of the same question: “do I have what it takes”. I always view myself as a beginner, I haven’t “made it” I have not arrived. I am always learning growing and seeking challenging experiences. I have a lot of wisdom and I am excited to share it with you.
