More information

I was born in Miskolc, Hungary in 1980, and still live here.

I graduated at the University of Miskolc with a degree in Mechanical Engineering in Computer Science. Father of two.

I’ve tried myself in many sports over time, athletics, orienteering, etc. I have meet with self-defense when I went to my first Krav Maga training in 2009. The system and the environment immediately captivated me. In 2011, I became acquainted with Jyrki Saario Defendo, which gave me another inspiration for development. With the encouragement of László Tóth leading instructor, I started the Saario Academy instructor training course. In 2013 I passed the Level 1 Hard Target instructor exam and then took over the leadership of the trainings in Miskolc. Trainings have been ongoing ever since, and my students successfully passed many exams over the years and gained a high level of knowledge.

In 2015, I acquired the Level 2 Combat Tech qualification, in 2018 the Level 3 S.T.A.R. and in 2019 I got the RED degree, Black Belt 1.Degree.

I will continue to attend instructor trainings and seminars for development.
