Where Tactical Fitness Began

Ron Grobman, Instructor and Founder of Tactical Fitness in Austin, TX.

At the age of 16, Ron became the youngest certified Krav Maga instructor in the United States through Krav Maga Worldwide. He has since attained the rank of 1st sergeant in the Israeli military, served in the IDF Special Forces reconnaissance battalion as a sniper, been certified through International Krav Maga under Gabi Noah, and gained Krav Maga Trainer certification from the Wingate Institute in Israel. Ron was able to accomplish his goals though working with civilians, law enforcement agencies, and military personnel as a Krav Maga instructor.

Why is Firearms Training Essential for Krav Maga Practitioners?

People who know little to nothing about firearms are at a severe disadvantage. If they’re assaulted by someone with a gun, they may well be too frightened or too ignorant to react properly.

The Biomechanics of the Combat Stance

The Biomechanics of the Combat Stance

The term “combat” to me, has always been something that is related to all forms of combat, armed and unarmed. It followed me through my years of training in Krav Maga and my service in the IDF. I noticed over the years that each form of combat had its stance, and a lot of the time that stance was similar between the different forms.

As a result, I have consolidated the different stances into one “combat stance.”

I like to meet these demands with Multiple Daily Workouts and make efficient use of our time by addressing at least a couple of these components during each workout.

Fist or palm, which is the better strike for self-defense?

Fist or palm, which is the better strike for self-defense?

When making the distinction between recreational martial arts and self-defense, one must also make the distinction between what strikes to use at the gym versus the street. The world outside of the gym has many variables to take into account; lack of equipment (gloves/wraps), weather, light, skill, and safety.
