Triangle Krav Maga is the highest rated combat training center based in the RTP area.
As a hand-to-hand fighting system, Krav Maga (“close combat” in Hebrew) is recognized for its brutal counter-attacks, solutions for multiple attackers and the ability to end fights quickly. We also teach a host of other skill sets …we even have a reality show (“Zero to Superhero“)!
We are one of the only Krav Maga schools on the East Coast certified to teach Force Training to law enforcement and military. We also teach modified Krav Maga to children. We care about our community and our classes reflect that. Our instructors are warm, funny and guaranteed to push you to the next level, so bring a towel. You’ll need it!
Wear comfortable workout clothes (t-shirt, shorts, etc.) and whatever shoes you would normally wear day to day. Bring MMA gloves or wraps for striking. A mouthpiece and a cup are also recommended.
At TKM, we promote a culture of respect and courtesy for one another. Machismo, showing off or not listening to instructors can lead to injuries and will not be tolerated. The goal is to make each other stronger. We can all have fun and be safe at the same time. Shalom!

Greer Gunther, J.D., M.D.
When she isn't treating patients at Duke, Greer is assisting students and challengers at TKM with fitness, nutrition and administrative support. As the VP of TKM, Greer also teaches archery at TKM events like Winters War and RESIST classes. Greer is almost as passionate about TKM as she is about her man, Molotov Mitchell (dawww!).
Rachel hails from the Colorado Rocky Mountains. She is a certified ACE personal trainer who successfully went through her own weight loss journey. She may be tiny but she is mighty (her nickname is "The Punisher," after all!). When she isn’t working out in the gym or hanging out with her dog Beau, she spends most of her time at TKM. If you ever need any motivation, inspiration, or someone to goof around with, look no further then this girl right here!
Jason loves his wife Caitlin and their toddler son Carter, who measures in the 99th percentile of cuteness. His favorite non-violent hobbies include playing guitar, chess, and writing aphorisms. He hopes to teach as many students as possible as he continues to grow as a practitioner, aspiring to earn the first Atlas-certified Krav Maga Black Belt.
Beware this Mama Bear! Caryn started at TKM to learn how to stay safe on long rides and runs, and now, she's ready to teach you to do the same. Bad guys beware! Caryn will come at you like a spider monkey (see photo).
Erik Carlos II
Erik may look intimidating but he’s like, totally super nice, you guys! He began his Krav Maga journey by helping lead UNC-Chapel Hill’s “Project Krav Maga (PKM)” student organization. He is known for his baritone voice, vibrant personality and the occasional lecture on physical fitness.
The ground can be a formidable foe and, unlike MMA, self-defense has no Referee Stoppages or tap-outs. As a Shingitai Jujitsu Black Belt, “Handsome Scott” helps students explore efficient ground fighting techniques to complement their KM development. Don’t be afraid to ask for a translation of his “British-isms”. You wouldn’t be the first.
He’s served our country around the world in nearly every kind of combat operation, protected high level public officials and is an expert Paramedic (and that’s all we’re allowed to say about him). As a RESIST instructor, Josh brings over 15 years of real-world experience to the table, so when he speaks, people listen.
When not chasing bad guys or mentoring youth at work, Glenn loves spending time with his family, traveling and teaching others how to defend themselves in the crazy world we live in. He’s one of the nicest people you will ever meet, but Glenn can be mean when needed; just look at that face!
