Joel is one of the most dedicated individuals I have had the pleasure of knowing. He has devoted his entire life to learning and teaching the science of self defense. - Reference Letter from Nir Maman, President and Chief Instructor, CT 707 Inc. Israeli Special Forces, Section Commander and Lead Counter Terror Instructor (Res.) 
I train at House of Combat for many reasons, if I had to pick just one, it would be the staff.  HOC is unique because they offer Counter Terror Krav Maga. Joel is an amazing person and teacher. His patience, skill, knowledge, and non aggressive teaching style are paramount for young kids and people lacking in self confidence. I'm a little guy, Krav Maga and Jiu Jitsu allow me to take on much bigger stronger opponents. - Gary J. Miller
My son has been going to House of Combat for over a year and LOVES it. He was never "into sports" so much and prefers a good book and a sofa, to exercise, but he will never, ever find an excuse not to go to Krav Maga. Joel doesn't let the boys give up, but he also knows when not to push them too hard. He has a perfect balance between making sure they perform correctly and making sure they don't get discouraged. Thank you Joel and Avigayil! - Erika B.
"Thanks again for an energetic class (my favourite part was the boxing!!!)... it felt empowering to even just start to learn (even though it's probably going to take me a long time to learn the moves)!" - S.Z., Women's Self Defence
"I'm very happy that I started coming to classes at House of combat. I've been coming now for about 3 months, and have seen some significant improvements not only to my physical health and conditioning, but also to my mental toughness." - Josh M.
