Trough increasing tensions all over, especially in Europe, he came to the conclusion that the time is now to do something useful and not only to sharpen individuals survival skills but also sensitivise their awareness, assertiveness and give them a full understanding of a violent situation.

From all the Systems he know he was most convinced by CKMI (Lior Offenbach).

So in 2015 he has contacted Lior if he might be interested in holding a seminar at STRIKEZONE in Zürich. This was the moment when we have met through the Krav Maga Seminar, organized by Oliver and hold by Lior. This was the start to bring COMBAT KRAV MAGA into Switzerland and bring a change into the local and national scene.

“In the meanwhile, we already held 2 more seminars plus an instructor course, have now 3 academies teaching CKM, held special courses at ESA in Poland in corporation with LANS Group and even are honored to have Police Units training with us….and we are growing”.
