Politics
We want to stay out of them. Period. We want to be inclusive rather than exclusive. We encourage our affiliates to join other organizations, Krav Maga and otherwise. Learn as much as you can. Discard what you think is ineffective. Stay with us as long as we are beneficial, and move on to something else if it suits you.

Paul Garcia

Paul Garcia America's Best Defense – Franklin, Mansfield MA
"The Krav Maga Alliance empowers its members and affiliates like no other organization does. As affiliates we are given access to expert mentors in every aspect of running a first rate, successful, self-protection and fitness training center. The training we receive enables us to offer a wider range of training options to our own students through programs such as Force and firearms training as well as Krav Maga and StrikeFit. As members, our training opportunities are vast and relevant to our ever changing world."

"The Krav Maga Alliance has been the single greatest tool for myself for my school to keep up to date with new training tools and techniques. Every time I go to a training event, I leave with a renewed passion for the system and a deeper knowledge of self defense. John and his team are consummate professionals who are very serious about their mission to maintain the reputation of Krav Maga and to improve how it is taught. I cannot recommend the Krav Maga Alliance enough, both for school owners and for individuals."

"We have been KMA affiliates since 2010. John Whitman is an amazing lead instructor. His attention to detail and ability to deliver information, in a concise and understandable way, keeps all his schools very clean in their techniques and very knowledgeable on real-world threats. We especially appreciate KMA's open door policy and customer service. If you want to be the best, train with the best, and that's Krav Maga Alliance! They are a great investment and will enhance your school with state of the art self-defense training."

"Not only are John Whitman, his staff, and training team easily accessible to their affiliates, but they are always willing to answer questions and are flexible when it comes to scheduling instructor training certifications and seminars. Last year, my school also became certified to teach StrikeFit and not only was the training and certification process of the highest quality, but the addition of the program has also allowed me to expand my market and to introduce a new type of heavy bag program not only to my current students, but also to individuals that are just looking for a high intensity workout."

“John has always been one of the ‘Original’ Krav Maga Trainers in the US. I’ve been with Krav Maga a long time and in the Martial Arts for over 30 years and I can tell you that not only is he one of the absolute best instructors (for anything, not just MA) that I’ve ever come across, he has also been MORE than instrumental, downright CRUCIAL, in the ongoing development and growth of Krav Maga as a system. John continues to think through self defense problems and techniques like very few people can, then present that in a manner that anyone can learn, enjoy, and understand. Krav Maga in the US is what it is today largely in part because of John’s efforts. John has been a mentor, instructor, and friend for nearly 10 years now and we will continue to look to him for guidance and training when it comes to Self Defense.”
