He has over 20 years experience teaching Reality Based Self Defense and "Close Combat" to Special Forces Operatives (SEO's), Law Enforcement Operatives (LEO's), Military Personnel and civilians. In 2008 He moved to Boston from London, UK (where his schools are still running) and began teaching in the Boston area, first in Cambridge renting space at the Cambridge YMCA and then in Medford (Roshankish Tae Kwon Do). In April of 2012 he moved his school, Krav Maga Yashir Boston, to a dedicated 16 000 sq ft Krav Maga training facility in Charlestown. This is the largest dedicated Krav Maga training facility on the U.S. East Coast.
Gershon is the author of the critically acclaimed "Krav Maga - Real World Solutions to Real World Violence", published by Tuttle Press (2015). The book took a unique approach to capturing the Krav Maga Yashir system, by shooting all the photographs in real time, rather than staging them as stills. Added to this all of the self-defense techniques described where photographed in the types of settings and locations, where such assaults would occur. The book is available in all major book stores as well as on Amazon ( click here to purchase).
Gershon Ben Keren, is the author of the popular Krav Maga Blog; a weekly blog that looks at personal safety, self-protection, self-defense, as well as Krav Maga. It was due to the blog, that Tuttle Publishing contacted him to write the definitive book on Krav Maga, as it has a dedicated following of respected security industry professionals and fellow Krav Maga instructors - You can read the Blog - which is updated each week - at www.kravmagablog.com, which can be accessed by clicking here.
