About the Author

In 1999 Mark was a member of the very first group of outside instructors ever trained at the Krav Maga National Training Center in Los Angeles. He then went on to open one of the first half dozen Krav Maga schools in the United States. Mark became a black belt in Krav Maga in November of 2003, tested with the USKMA to Second Degree Black Belt in 2009 and to Third degree in 2012. In 2011 Mark trained in Israel with Grandmaster Yaron Lichtenstein and hosted the Grandmaster in his Ohio gyms as well. Mark Slane has studied the martial arts for over thirty years. Mark started his training in Tae Kwon Do and holds a fourth degree black belt in that art. In Olympic style Tae Kwon Do he won a national championship in sparring in the light weight division - 33 to 40 year old age group. He has taught martial arts to hundreds of students in various schools and has coached and trained dozens of national medalists, national champions, U.S. team members and World medalists. Mark has also trained in boxing for several years with Olympic Gold Medalist, Jerry Page and has spent years studying Muay Thai, BJJ, and Mixed Martial Arts as well. Mark retired early from his firefighter/paramedic job to devote his life to making others safer. Mark founded the United States Krav Maga Association to spread Krav Maga throughout the U.S. the right way. No politics or egos...Just real world self defense training. Mark is also the author of Be Safe! Self Defense for Women and Krav Maga For Law Enforcement with Brannon Hicks. He has also recently had an article published in Black Belt magazine. He lives in Ohio with his wife Tina and their son Shae. Mark can be contacted at [email protected]
