Owner and Head Instructor at S.M.A.R.T Krav-Maga, Amnon Darsa was the co-owner of Krav Maga Core (before it was dissolved). He is one of the most renowned, recognised and highest ranked GITs globally. Amnon Darsa’s training in Krav Maga began when he was just thirteen years old and 1988 onwards he was the protégé of Eyal Yanilov, Imi Lichtenfeld’s closest and most trusted student.
Before establishing S.M.A.R.T Krav Maga, Amnon Darsa spent over a decade working with the International Krav Maga Federation and Krav Maga Global. As the Lead Global Instructor in both the organisations, he has developed an unmatched expertise in all sectors and applications of Krav Maga. His contribution to the sphere of Krav Maga has been immense. Amnon Darsa has trained both civilian instructors and armed forces units across the globe, in addition to serving as the head of the testing committee in the IKMF, founding the E and G crash camps, and developing grading systems and testing software.
He was introduced to kettle-bells in 2008. It did not take long for him to realise the benefits of kettle-bells in overall training and strength development. With hard work, motivation, an understanding of the system and the vision of bringing kettle-bells to all Krav Maga instructors as a tool for strength led Amnon Darsa to his RKC2 kettle-bell instructor certification and he now holds a Master Level in the RKC kettle-bell system. Now, with the creation of S.M.A.R.T Krav Maga, Amnon Darsa intends to fulfil his vision!
He is also an advance driving instructor and primal move instructor.
