The result of extensive research including an analysis of over 140 active shooter/killer incidents, Krav Maga Extreme Survival provides an apolitical view of personal safety concentrating on practical methods to survive violent situations.

In his over 25 years of experience, Gershon Ben Keren has had the privilege of training with many different trainers and associations, including some of the Israeli Defense Forces’, most elite Close Combat/Krav Maga Instructors. In his third book Ben Keren explains how Krav Maga techniques can be used to survive some of the most relevant, extreme situations including carjackings, home invasions, and attempted mass killings. The book also details predator profiling methods to aid in the prediction, prevention and avoidance of violence.
