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


Throughout his decades of training and teaching, Coach Larry has aquired black belts or instructor ranks in everything from Chinese Kung Fu and American Karate to Filipino Escrima and Unarmed Combatives.

However, a chance seminar with
Eyal Yanilov, the recognized successor to the creator of Krav Maga, changed the direction of Larry’s training and teaching forever. Years later, Larry became one of only 3 people to complete Eyal’s first instructor course in the US, eventually becoming one of the first Americans to gain the rank of Expert (later Expert 2) in the entire country.
