Managing Violence Podcast with Joe Saunders

How often do we hear self-defence instructors talk about "psychopaths", "sociopaths" or "random psychos" in scenario training, or discuss boogeyman threats? Yet, how many of them truly understand the terminology they are using? On this important episode, Krav Maga instructor and author, as well as clinically trained psychologist, Gershon Ben Keren, debunks many of the myths and misconceptions around these conditions. This is one not to be missed.

Krav Chats Ep.7 - Gershon Ben Keren

Krav Chats

In this episode, Krav Maga Systems Hong Kong Instructor Nils Beiskjær speaks to Gershon Ben Keren. Gershon frequently uses his knowledge on psychology and real-world experience as a security professional to break down and rebuild stagnant paradigms in the Krav Maga and Self-defence Industry. His aim is to help people bridge the gap between the reality of violence and the framework that makes Krav Maga great. In this podcast, Gershon addresses this perspective and explains why it's so important to ensure your training (and teaching) is supporting what you can expect to face in a real situation. A bit about Gershon: Gershon Ben Keren is a 5th Degree Black Belt with over 20 years of experience in Krav Maga, he's a security professional, a second-degree black belt in Judo, runs his own school (Krav Maga Yashir in Boston, USA), AND has a Masters in Psychology. On top of this, he has authored popular books about Krav Maga.Like this podcast?

Episode 114 - Mr. Gershon Ben Keren

whistlekick Martial Arts Radio

Mr. Gershon Ben Keren is a Krav Maga instructor, author and school owner. Mr. Gershon Gen Keren - Episode 114 It really doesn't matter how you solve that problem, whether you solve that problem by picking up an improvised weapon, whether you solve that problem through de-escalation or you solve it through disengagement. Frequent listeners know that we try to bring on people from different martial arts. It's important to be a well-rounded martial artist, and part of that involves learning about the different perspectives that different martial artists have - especially those that train in less-common arts. While we've had a few guests on the show that trained in Krav Maga, none of them have defined themselves as Krav Maga practitioners. And until recently, I wasn't even aware of how old Krav Maga was. So, when Mr. Gershon Ben Keren came to my attention as Krav Maga practitioner who started training long before the current wave, he seemed the perfect candidate to have on the show. While Mr. Ben Keren isn't here to represent Krav Maga, being the first person steeped in that art on the show carried a bit of responsibility with it. I was very honest with him of this, but also let him know that the episode was about him and not his chosen art. I think we both did a good job of placing him first but also giving you some information on the history of the style, which was important in giving you context for our guest. I really enjoyed getting to know Mr. Ben Keren, and with his school only a few hours away, it's just a matter of time before I pop by for a visit. Let's welcome him to the show. whistlekick Shin Guards Today's featured product is our shin guard - without a doubt the best foam shin guards available.
