All of the instructors and coaches are Krav Maga Association certified, which means they’ve been trained in the latest techniques taught by the Chief Commanders and Head Instructors of the Israeli Defense Forces. The Chief Commander of the IDF for Krav Maga is in charge of ALL hand-to-hand combat taught within the entire Israeli Military, including the elite forces and Israeli Police.

We believe that training in Krav Maga will make you fitter, tougher and prepared to fight in all situations.

Todd Millls

Chief Instructor

Master Level Krav Maga

After 25 years in traditional martial arts, I made the switch to incorporate Krav Maga into my daily practice. I am passionate about sharing the knowledge and techniques that have been provided to me. I firmly believe that everyone should have the confidence to defend themselves.

Jackie Bellan

Coach

Graduate Level 2

In today's world knowing some type of
self defense has become almost a necessity. Krav Maga is a very practical and effective self-defense system. I like that with each level you build on your skills and you are continually learning. You build the skills and confidence to defend yourself if needed. We train hard and challenge one another to improve.  Since completing graduate level 1 I now get to share what I have learned with other students.

Zach & Stephanie Cochran

Coach

Graduate Level 1

Zach and Stephanie were the first couple to reach Graduate Level 1 at Battle Rock and start coaching together. They work great together and have very valuable insight in how to operate safely as a couple and family.

They started taking Krav Maga as a way to learn a real world applicable self-defense system. Now their goal is to teach others, and help them have a healthy, abundant life.

Greg & Josh Bolt

Coach

Graduate Level 1

Greg and Josh were the first father son team to reach coaching status with us. Greg is a Physical Therapist Assistant with a local home health company. “I encountered a few bad domestic situations at work and felt I needed training to defend and protect myself. This grew into a family training with my son who’s my right hand man and now we get to coach together and protect our family at the same time.”

Stephanie Estes

Coach

Graduate Level 1

I joined Battle Rock Krav Maga in July 2015. There are several reasons why I enjoy Krav Maga. Number one is to learn self defense skills to protect myself and my family. It's so important to be able to recognize a threatening situation and how to appropriately respond. Another benefit of Krav Maga is exercise conditioning. These workouts challenge me to push myself to improve physically. Additionally, I have enjoyed getting to know other Battle Rock members. We work out together, spar together, and learn drills together. It's encouraging to be able to support each other not only in Krav Maga, but also in other aspects of our lives. These are just a few the the benefits I have received by training in Krav Maga, although the list continues to grow!

Bryson Hines

Coach

Graduate Level 1

Bryson started with his dad. It was something for both of them to do and it sounded fun. They stuck with it because they enjoyed training together and found community with others. They realized they had a lot to learn and wanted to continue growing in their knowledge. “Coaching gives me the opportunity to continue learning and also help others learn how to protect themselves.”

Dana Alston

Coach

Graduate Level 1

What began as a goal of learning to defend myself has turned into much more. I was surprised to discover so many practical techniques that I could do to defend myself. I soon realized Krav Maga also teaches physical fitness, preventive awareness, problem solving, and techniques to defend others, all with the support of a great community. I’m honored to serve under these leaders, and look forward to empowering others with this combat system. 2 Timothy 1:7

Janice Mills

Coach

Graduate Level 1

I didn’t really think I needed self defense training since I married into a martial arts family and I always felt safe when I was with them. When I became a mama, I found that I was often out with our children by myself in grocery stores, at gas stations, parking lots, etc. and I felt much more vulnerable. I had watched my husband (Todd) teach and train for years and I knew I would be learning from the best. I had no idea how much I would love learning and training in Krav Maga, and coaching others is even better. When you get to empower others with the confidence they need to protect and defend themselves, it’s so very rewarding.
