STEVEN SMITH is a certified Krav Maga instructor, Alpha Krav Maga International. He began his martial training as a youth with the Hawaii Kenpo Karate Institute and progressed to the level of 3rd grade Brown Belt. He then transitioned to wrestling during high school in order to develop his grappling skills. His current commitment to Alpha Krav Maga International stems from his belief that martial arts should adapt to modern fighting scenarios and self-defense. He received his black belt from Dennis Amato, Krav Maga Boston (the first Krav Maga training center in New England). Always willing to learn, Steven has also been training in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu since 2014. Given the physical demands of such close quarters fighting, Steven is also certified personal trainer. His philosophy of physical fitness is based on functional movements that build up the body to perform efficiently throughout a full range of motion.
