A Sit-Down with Coach Jon

For many, the journey to self-defense and self-empowerment is rooted in a desire to take ownership of one’s life. An arrival to self-defense can be sparked from a specific incident or a general feeling of being astray. Regardless of how one comes to self-defense, the outcome is the same…empowerment.

The StandStrong team is honored to have coaches, of all different backgrounds, who are on a mission to change the world – allowing their students regain their power.

One of our coaches is Jon. If you follow our social media accounts, then you can see how passionate this guy really is.

Jon often shares his theories on self-defense in our “Tuesday Tactic,” spotlights and continues to empower people outside of our classes. He is always on our webinars encouraging our students to push further than they believe possible.

We are very lucky to have him on our team and couldn’t resist sharing his words with all of you. We sat down with coach Jon and asked him what self-defense and the art of Krav Maga means for him…

“From my experience self-defense and Krav Maga is not only a punch or kick but a mindset we must work on every day. It’s the way we walk, talk open the door. It’s the way we speak, the calmness in the midst of panic, the confidence in knowing I have a solution for every problem because I believe in myself and my abilities. That’s Krav Maga for me.”

For coach Jon self-defense is not simply a means to an end. It’s a mindset and a confidence that are essential in this uncertain world.

We are happy to share this mission with coach Jon and all our instructors, and instill the confidence in our students to take control of their own lives.
