Eric began his career in public service at just 16 years old, serving as an EMT on a local volunteer first aid squad. On September 11, 2001 he and his father traveled to Ground Zero in NYC, serving on bucket lines for several days after the towers fell. Four years later, Eric found himself graduating the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center and spending the next 8 years as a police officer. Eric worked in Washington DC as a patrol officer, finished a 5 Week SWAT school as the Top Graduate, served on a full-time SWAT team and spent two years as a patrol supervisor.
Eric’s career as an instructor was sparked by his passion for serving others. After finding Krav Maga to be an effective defensive tactics system as a student, he desired to share this with other police officers as an instructor. In February of 2006 Eric graduated his first of many defensive tactics instructor courses and began his path towards teaching full-time.
Over the last 10 years, Eric has taught thousands of police officers from all over the country in fitness, defensive tactics, use of force, fourth amendment, close quarters combat, active shooter, patrol rifle operations and executive protection. He has trained and continues to train with some of the world’s experts, seeking always to find the most current and most effective tools to pass on to those who rely on these tactics as life saving skills.
