starting his journey in Karate, and progressing from there into full contact martial arts. From the age of 13 Amit represented
the Israeli National Team in competitions in Israel and around the world.
At the age of 18 Amit joined the IDF Special Forces.
At that time in Israel the Al-aqsa Intifada (second Intifada ) had started.

His unit was kept busy and he progressed through the ranks to Sergeant in the combat team and also worked as a Krav Maga instructor
with the training teams in the unit.
It was a tough and intense period in his life but Amit couldn’t find a better “training” ground for CQC than real military experience.
After completing his military service Amit moved to China. He spent 3 years of training in traditional Kung Fu, Sanshou and Shuai Jiao.

Upon his return to Israel, Amit opened the “Israel Sanshou Academy”, a martial arts academy for Sanshou, shuai jiao and tactical training.
Sanshou is a fighting system that is used in the training program of the Chinese police and as the main combat sport in China.
Amit currently has 10 Dojo’s in Israel and teaches Sanshou at the main dojo of TLV University.
Across the 10 Dojo’s Amit and his instructors teach Krav Maga, Kapap, Sanshou, Grappling, Wrestling, MMA and CQC.
A total of 870 students attend his classes a week.

Amit also has a contract with 8 schools across Israel where he teaches children of all abilities including those with special needs.
In 2010 Amit was asked by Lt Col Chaim Peer to help with seminars and add his experience in martial arts to teach Military CQC
techniques to the International Kapap Federation (IKF).
He also leads the training around the world to Special Forces Units, Police Forces and anti-bullying campaigns in schools and universities.
Amit currently runs combat training for active Israeli Special Forces along with some of his instructors.
