With over 30 years of martial arts and self-defense experience, Larry D. Escher was the first to bring the Krav Maga Self-Defense System to the Katy / West Houston area.

Throughout his decades of training and teaching, Coach Larry aquired black belts and instructor ranks in several martial arts including Chinese Kung Fu, American Karate, Filipino Stick, Knife, and Sword Fighting, Unarmed Combatives, and more.

A 2-day workshop with Eyal Yanilov, the highest-ranked instructor and successor to the founder of Krav Maga, changed the direction of Larry’s training and teaching. Years later, Larry became one of only 3 people to complete Eyal’s first instructor course in the U.S., eventually becoming one of the first Americans to gain the rank of Expert under him (later Expert 2).

Over the years, Larry has continued learning from many elite Krav Maga instructors around the world including Avi Moyal (IKMF), Gabi Noah (IKM), and Alan Predolin (360) as well as seminars from Darren Levine (KMWW), John Whitman (KMA), Ryan Hoover (F2F) and more
