Rick Ransom- Lead Instructor
Rick served 8 years as a United States Marine. He instructed The Marine Corps Boxing Team in Hawaii during his enlistment. His military occupation was Aircraft Rescue & Firefighting. After his enlistment he worked as an Emergency Communication Specialist in Idaho which involved working with The Dept. Of Homeland Security activating Amber Alerts, rural ambulances, life-flight, and handling 911 calls. He discovered through his job experience that the best line of defense is yourself in most situations.
Rick saw a segment of Commando Krav Maga on The Discovery channel TV show: Human Weapon in 2009. This inspired him to become a certified instructor. After a background check and interview with the Chief Instructor, Moni Aisik, Rick was accepted into the CKM Instructor Course and trained by one of Moni’s Elite Team Instructors. With Moni’s advice to have a mindset of an “empty cup” Rick passed at the top of his class. Since then he has had the privilege to be trained personally by Mr. Aisik along with the best of Moni’s Elite Team Instructors and is among the few high level instructors in the U.S. Rick strives to provide the best quality training to all students in Commando Krav Maga.
