While training at two different Krav Maga Schools within the Alpha Krav Maga International System, Troy Osgood and Steven Smith met at an Instructor Certification. They began training together shortly after the certification, through this training they realized how like-minded they are in regards to Krav Maga and self-defense in general. After about a year of sharpening skills and hardcore sparring, Troy and Steven discussed joining forces to open a Krav Maga School. In June of 2016 that discussion became a reality. HARDLINE is the result of a passion for teaching Krav Maga in its authenticity and believing that people deserve the very best, realistic, hands on training.
