 HaganaH is the Evolution of Israeli Martial Arts - Made in Israel - Assembled in the U.S.A.  

"HaganaH is the Hybrid Israeli Martial Art created by Israeli Special Forces Commando and Martial Arts Master Mike Lee Kanarek. Mike Lee Kanarek developed HaganaH as a result of his experience in the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) and a lifetime of Martial Arts experiences. The foundation of HaganaH is a combination of Mike Lee Kanarek’s diverse training background.

-50 percent of HaganaH is MENTAL TOUGHNESS and combat conditioning training. 
-15 percent of HaganaH is selected KRAV MAGA self-defense techniques that have been enhanced and tailored to fit the principles of HaganaH and the environments in which it is utilized.
-15 percent of HaganaH is made up of selected HISARDUT fighting techniques that mesh well with HaganaH's method of fighting.
-10 percent of HaganaH is LOTAR techniques used by Israeli Special Forces operators currently in Israel.The remaining 10 percent are the techniques Kanarek learned in the U.S. both from the military community and the martial arts community."

We teach principles and techniques to learn to react appropriately to many types of Close Quarter Combat (CQC) situations: home invasions, dynamic entries, active shooter scenarios, car jackings, and 3rd party protection. These methods are suitable for individuals or families (couples) with funneling techniques that span the capabilities of the entry-level law enforcement officer, infantryman or up to elite-level SWAT and Special Forces Operators. 


Developed by incorporating elements and techniques of Muay Thai, HaganaH (the evolution of Israeli Martial Arts aka Krav Maga, Lotar, Kapap) US Marine Corps Martial Arts Program and Brazilian JiuJitsu​.
