James Sherman Krav Maga
Martial-arts virtuoso and instructor James Sherman earned an official certification from the revered Israeli Krav Maga Association after completing more than 500 hours of close-quarters combat training in Israel. Sherman, who has received attention from Time Out New York, leads groups and individuals—including executives and celebrities such as magician David Blaine, singer-songwriter John Mayer, and BBC America president Herb Scannell—through the rigorous self-defense regimen, which includes potent kicks, punches, strikes, and chokeholds designed to ward off bullies, violent attackers, and amorous ivy vines. His team of distinguished instructors include Lalo Roberti, a SEAL Team 10 operative in operation Red Wings—the Marcus Lattrell Lone Survivor story—and Paul Zukowski, a world heavyweight champion in Barknuckle MMA. In addition, Sherman illustrates how Krav maga's cardiovascular intensity can bolster students' strength, speed, and flexibility.
