Featured Post: AZ Elite

Name of your business: AZ Elite

Length of time you’ve been in business: 1 Year

Why did you get into your industry? What is your goal/mission?
To teach self defense, martial arts and character education to children. Also to teach self defense (Israeli Krav Maga) and effective fitness with lasting results to adults. Lastly to build a professional Mixed Martial Arts team in Flagstaff.

Your specialty – the reason people choose you: I have over 12 years experience in professional mixed martial arts coaching. I started under World Champions Frank Shamrock and Maurice Smith in 1996. I am well versed at helping people reduce body fat and get in the best shape of their lives quickly and safely due to years of teaching physical fitness in a Law Enforcement Academy AND several fitness certifications/affiliations. I am the most experienced Israeli Krav Maga instructor in Arizona having 12 years teaching and nearly 14 practicing. I have taught and worked with troubled youth in a number of states, so teaching children values and character as a part of our youth program(s) comes naturally.
Your favorite part about doing business in Flagstaff:
 I love the environment. After just one look, Law Enforcement in Flagstaff recognize the value of our method of teaching Krav Maga. Plus, being the only school in Northern AZ to have a Championship MMA history and certifications, families love our curriculum!!

Who is your favorite local non-profit or charitable organization? Why? We have donated to many, but the biggest feedback has come from Friends of Flagstaff’s Future.

Do you have any special events coming up? What are they?We ALWAYS have Special Events in the works.  My instructor from Israel will be here in FEBRUARY.  Chuck Liddell’s Coach, John Hackleman is slated for APRIL and Jeremy Horn will be back in the late Spring.  The best way to keep tabs is to join our website for free and keep an eye on the Lounge and Schedule.

Are you hiring? We would be willing to entertain the possibility of putting on additional instructors who can meet minimal requirements.

  1. I've heard about this school for a while now. I can only wish I were close enough to it though. I'd love to take some of those classes.
