About Us

Welcome to Our Gym

Omar and Margaret, owners, hold a sign saying "All Are Welcome Here"

Self-defense might be serious stuff, but we try not to take ourselves too seriously. Nerf guns, pets, and brunch dates are a big part of our culture.

We don’t employ drill sergeants and we aren’t fans of big egos, because we want every person who walks through our door to feel comfortable and safe, all while learning to kick some ass.

Covid-19 has forced us to make lots of temporary changes, but we’re still here (masked up and socially distanced) providing a series of Krav Maga and kickboxing classes.

Thanks for stopping by, and we hope to meet you in person!

Omar and Margaret Torres
(Owners of Xtreme Krav Maga in Midtown)

Meet our Team

Every one of our instructors brings something different to the table, whether that’s a background in boxing, Jiu Jitsu, or fitness, and each have put in countless hours training in the discipline of Krav Maga.

All of our instructors have been certified by Krav Maga Worldwide.

Omar Torres, Owner

Between Kickboxing and Krav Maga, Omar has about 10 years of experience in martial arts.

Omar is a certified Krav Maga Expert II instructor.

Allison Raskin

Allison has been practicing Krav Maga for about six years, and after we twisted her arm a bit, she decided to venture into the teaching side of things.

Allison is a certified Phase A Instructor.


Nick Kong

Nick has trained in both the Krav Maga Worldwide and Fit to Fight systems, incorporating kickboxing, wrestling, and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

Nick is a certified Phase A instructor.

Zemez Harris

By night, Z is a St. Louis police officer, and by day, a Krav Maga instructor. His background was in boxing before we tempted him to the dark side.

Z is a certified Phase A Instructor.


Cory Meyer

Cory has been an instructor for so long, we’ve almost forgotten when he started. He’s been training Krav Maga for seven years.

Cory is a certified Phase B Instructor.

Will Bolling

Will began his Krav Maga training around the same time as owners, Margaret and Omar, and Allison. He had about 5 years of experience, before moving to the instructor side of things.

Will is a certified Phase B Instructor.


Self-Defense Is For Everyone

When we say everyone, we mean EVERYONE, regardless of race, religion, age, orientation, or gender. From our instructors to our members, we prioritize a healthy and inclusive environment, in which everyone can feel safe and comfortable while training. Hate or prejudice of any kind will not be tolerated in our gym.

If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know.

“The owners are super friendly and welcoming and make you feel like family. Omar and the other instructors are all highly knowledgable and supportive in Krav classes but also in general fitness classes. Always a full body workout, always in a fun and supportive environment.”

Taylor, Student

Very helpful and encouraging staff; always patient and willing to give that extra bit of assistance, no matter your level of skill or fitness.
