Instructor Steven Comas is a Bronx native who began training in martial arts to better deal with his environment as a teen. Throughout his youth, he has had the opportunity to study various styles from wrestling, Kung-Fu (tiger style), American Kickboxing, Muay Thai, and boxing. It wasn’t until his adult years that he began researching about Krav Maga and became enamored with its concept and principles.

Comas has been training for more than four years with the IKMF and has earned the rank of Graduate Level 1, making him an IKMF Certified Civilian Instructor. In all, he has six years of training experience.

Through Maccabees Krav Maga, Comas passes his knowledge and self-awareness to his students so if they are ever so unfortunate to encounter a violent or threatening situation, they can respond appropriately.
