Krav Maga is for Everyone
Built on simple principles, instinctive movements, and practical techniques, Krav Maga was made the official self-defense system of the Israel Defense Forces. To this day, it remains a favorite among law enforcement agencies, military personnel, and anyone interested in making the transformation of a lifetime. That’s right — anyone.
Whether you want to take back your peace of mind, try a new workout, or get your child interested in a hobby that is fun and beneficial to their development, training at Krav Maga Lubbock is the answer.

Francisco Betancourt began training Krav Maga in 2010 with only a small amount of Muay Thai experience. He loved the no-nonsense approach to self-defense and, as someone with limited mobility, the ease of technical execution of the techniques. In 2012, he began training to become an instructor. After serving in the Oklahoma National Guard and completing graduate school, Francisco taught Krav Maga full time, continuing to pursue his own advancement. In 2018, he received the rank of black belt through Krav Maga Worldwide. Among students and instructors alike, Francisco is known for his vast knowledge and skill in the system, his acerbic wit, and his dedication to advancing the training of his fellow instructors.
Francisco also has experience teaching military personnel (including SOF), LEOs, Park Rangers, amateur MMA fighters, and Kids.

Off the mats, Briann is a dog lover, a video game nerd, and can often be found working with drills and saws.
