Do you know a recent nationwide report found that “Krav Maga” ranked third, behind only “Fitness Kickboxing” and “Martial Arts For Children” in internet searches for martial arts or self defense? Like most Krav Maga organizations we will teach you and your staff excellent real world self defense techniques. Krav Maga is easy to learn, easy to remember and extremely effective. Law enforcement and military groups throughout the world seek out Krav Maga because of its reputation as that of real-world, no-nonsense self defense. What separates the USKMA from other organizations is the business and marketing side. We will show you exactly how to use awesome marketing to get people in, lead awesome introductory lessons that will get people to join, and teach awesome classes that people want to keep coming back for! We will show you every aspect of how to run a Krav Maga gym…everything from how to answer the phone to providing you with TV commercials to giving you class lesson plans. We will share everything with you that we did in our Ohio gyms to go from start to over 750 members. The great thing about our marketing is that it is done with integrity. No used car salesman techniques!!

Our instructor training is four days of intense classes in which you will learn the level 1 techniques, how to teach and how to run a Krav Maga gym with an emphasis on marketing. We do not bring you in to show you how tough we are, to flunk as many as possible or to let you leave at the end not knowing if you passed. We believe that Krav Maga is good for people and that it will keep them safe. Our goal is to teach others this system to spread it throughout the U.S.

We schedule level one instructor trainings at gyms across the nation several times during the year, check “events” page of USKMA.com for training dates. We actually have a couple of different ways to do our certification training. One is for those who run a gym and want to become an affiliate. The second is for people who wish to do the instructor training for their own personal knowledge. Either way, you will leave with a great knowledge of all of our level one techniques as well as some level two and weapon disarms. The 4 days of training costs much less than what most other organizations charge for training and we believe that we are the only organization really showing gym owners a complete system that will grow their adult program and grow their bottom line.

We are all about customer service for our affiliate gyms! We give monthly video staff meetings, marketing material, ads and show how we signed an average of 48 adults per month over a two year period at our gyms. You will also be given access to the affiliate page of one of the top web sites in the business. This site is your one stop shop for running a Krav Maga gym. On the site are videos on how to run intros, classes, cardio classes and drills as well as lesson plans, how to write a press release, marketing material, ad photos and much, much more. We also have a Technique of the Month, Drill of the Month and monthly video staff meeting feature on the site to keep our affiliates up to date with the latest marketing and teaching techniques.

You can also schedule us to come to your gym to train and test your staff for the four days. By the time we leave you and your staff will have our lesson plans for level 1 and know how to run classes, how to do intros, how to market, what to say on the phone, how to run a test, etc.

We would love to include you in our upcoming training. Call or e mail with any questions.

PS, here are testimonials from a few of our affiliates;

“I am running your system to the tee and I’m 130 members in less than a year, and that is starting from 0 and in a city where I knew no one.” Juan Acosta, Ft. Myers FL


“I have traveled around a lot ,, and trained with some of the top trainers … We were truly blessed to find a great instructor ,, my group truly enjoyed all the training .. I feel it was the best program we have ever had presented to us ,,,it was the real deal and we were very honored to have you down and look forward to a great training future ahead thank you again” – Alex Azar, Longview Martial Arts


“I am home now after finishing the level 1 instructor training and have had a chance to think about my experience. The course was tough, well organized and thorough. The instructors were knowledgeable, warm and motivating. The people in my group became fast friends. As you know, I have taken Krav Maga instructor courses before and they cannot compare to what I just experienced with USKMA.
Overall, I feel incredibly inspired and look forward to growing with this family. All the best to you all.” —Rafi Peretz, Miami, FL


“I just got back from training in Ohio, all I can say is WOW. Great people, awesome training, seeing the business in action first hand, just priceless. No egos just great training. All the USKMA instructors were
great and taught excellent classes, these classes were packed with happy students. Simply one of the best training courses I have attended.
All I can say is the USKMA is one of the best associations that I have been involved with, they kept asking what else do you need from us. When is the last time you had that happen with a martial arts group, just awesome. I have been training since I was a kid and have experienced the ego/political groups in several disciplines. It was just refreshing to be welcomed with open arms and loaded up with material and hands-on training.
I just want to thank Mark for creating such an amazing association. I haven’t seen a better business model for Krav Maga and especially the adult self defense and fitness market. Can’t wait until my next trip to ohio. Thanks Guys” —Alan Condon, Empire Martial Arts

“I have trained in Martial Arts most of my adult life, earning multiple Black Belts in traditional arts. Throughout my time as a Martial Artist and while serving as a Federal law Enforcement Officer and as a United States Marine Corps Officer I have had the opportunity to train in many martial arts and self defense programs. To say that I was greatly impressed with the staff of USKMA would be an understatement. They have taken what we are all looking for in self defense and have put it in an easy to understand and logical format. The curriculum and staff will challenge you while maintaining a safe and friendly atmosphere. Be prepared to sweat, learn sound defense and be safer upon leaving their gym. The atmosphere created at USKMA is one of encouragement to anyone who is interested in learning self defense, regardless of your age or ability. I would highly recommend this program to anyone who is serious about learning true self defense.” —Maj. Paul Oppedisano


“Mark Slane has the blueprint for running a successful Krav Maga gym, and his team of professional instructors expertly execute that plan. I have been training in various martial arts for over thirty years and teaching fellow police officers to survive on the streets for the past seven years. I know from experience that finding instructors who bring the ‘total package’ is rare. Mark and his instructors are not only expert Krav Maga practitioners, but they are capable of effectively translating their knowledge into great results for their students.

My gym, Force 3 Krav Maga and Fitness recruited more students in one week after incorporating Mark’s marketing strategies than we had in the previous three months. Our mission is to create a safer society through education and training, and we are far more capable of getting that training out to good people thanks to Mark’s strategies and methods. If you are interested in incorporating Krav Maga into your gym or starting a Krav Gym, it would be a mistake not to consult Mark Slane. John, Aaron and the others at USKMA are great people who are passionate about Krav Maga and the positive impact it can have on people’s lives. Follow the leaders folks!” —Brannon Hicks, SWAT ATL, Law Enforcement Defensive Tactics Instructor, Force 3 Krav Maga and Fitness, St. Johns, FL


“My name is Mark Howard, and I have been associated with the martial arts for over 30 years. I currently own two martial arts studios in Tucson, Az., both of which utilize a significant amount of Krav Maga in the training of our students. I ‘discovered’ Mark’s presence on the internet by accident. However, the more I read about his approach to teaching Krav Maga, the more intrigued I became. I discovered an individual who also believes it isn’t necessary to ‘break’ your Krav student to teach them properly…that it is possible, and probably better learning, to have fun while grasping Krav…and that anyone can be labeled an ‘instructor,’ but it takes real talent to be a ‘teacher!’
The next evolution is for a ‘teacher’ to then ‘teach the teachers.’ That’s when I asked Mr. Slane to travel to Tucson and teach a small cadre of potential teachers to help me with the Krav Maga at my studios. Mr. Slane leaped at the opportunity to groom a new group of teachers for me!
Utilizing an incredible blend of innate teaching ability and sense of humor, coupled with the old 2×4 to the side of the head when appropriate, Mark turned a group of six highly motivated Krav students into the next generation of Krav teachers in Tucson! Teaching with high energy, expertise, and intensity, Mark quickly earned the respect of every student and, with the exception of a few bruises here and there, completed five days of training with NO injuries and were totally exhausted!
The debriefing for each student was immediate and the most thorough I have ever experienced in the martial arts community. In fact, he reminded me of my days as a ‘Topgun’ instructor…he was that thorough and unrelenting in his pursuit of producing the highest quality Teachers! No physical abuse, no mental games…just pure and simple raising the bar to an entirely new level! It was a pleasure to watch my students grow so much in such a short period of time under Mr. Slane’s superb guidance.
I am already planning on Mr. Slane coming back to Tucson in the Spring to enjoy the fine weather and repeat his ‘magic’ with my students yet again! They can’t wait, and neither can I!” —LtCol (ret) Mark R. Howard, MBA
