Level G3

Ben has always been passionate about health, fitness and self- defense, in his previous employment Ben earned his designation as a certified Sports Nutritionist and Personal Trainer through the YMCA and YWCA. Ben has been training in martial arts and self- defense systems for 15 plus years of his life in both traditional styles of Okinawa Karate, Japanese Ju jitsu, Shaolin Kung Fu, and Okinawa Kobudo and non- traditional styles of Thai boxing, Brazilian Ju Jitsu and Mixed Martial Arts. Ben holds a first degree black belt in Okinawa Goju Ryu Karate, a white belt with one stripe in Brazilian Ju Jitsu and a yellow belt in tai kwon Do. Ben for the past 10 years of his life has worked in a physical security role as well as achieving his designation as a Close Protection Specialist and found that when he encountered situations that required physical intervention his previous skills were inadequate. Ben at that time began searching for a system that was both realistic to the street and easy to learn. Ben quickly found what he was looking for and began training in Krav Maga in 2012 at Krav Maga Ottawa. He fell in love with the system and its applications to real life violence. Krav Maga has helped Ben immensely in his day to day tasks at work and he desired for other people to have the skills to protect themselves no matter their present abilities. Ben completed his Civilian Instructor Course In June and July of 2015 and in October 2015 earned the rank of Graduate level 1. His earned his G2 in August 2016 with Jean-Paul Jauffret (E4) who also certified him as VIP protection Instructor. His teachers are Israel Tamir (E4), Israel Cohen (E3), Laurent Mougeot (E2), Jean-Paul Jauffret (E4) and Clovis Lavoie (G5)
