Omar moved to St. Louis from Puerto Rico in 2011, for a job in manufacturing. Before moving, he did three years of kickboxing but wasn’t able to find a gym he liked here in Missouri.
In February 2015, Omar and his wife wanted to try a practical style of self defense and found Xtreme Krav Maga St. Louis. They took a trial class the very next morning, signed up, and have been practicing ever since.
Omar trained six to nine hours every week, and signed up for every workshop, including Active Shooter Neutralization, Car Jacking, Home Invasion, and more. He’s trained with many of the top Krav Maga experts, including John Pascal, Darren Levine, Junior Merkle, and Kelly Campbell.
He believes Krav Maga can save your life and is passionate about teaching people to protect themselves and their loved ones.
“I have been taking Krav classes from Omar for over a year. Omar always finds the right balance between encouragement and constructive criticism to help you improve without feeling self-conscious.
His classes provide a good mix of intense training with some fun, and he is excellent at coaching people of all skill levels based on their individual needs.
There’s always something new to learn or improve, and you’ll never have a chance to get bored with a routine.”

“Omar always comes to class ready to train hard. He presents a good mix of low-level and high-level techniques in class. His drills enforce what we have been learning and help you see how the techniques can be applied in the real world.
His enthusiasm for Krav and teaching makes me look forward to his class each week.”
