Steve Comas is a Bronx native and has resided there all his life. Growing up at a time when the Bronx had a reputation for being one of the “rougher” boroughs to live in, he often found himself attempting to avoid physical confrontations.
He began training martial arts to better deal with his environment as a teen. Throughout his youth, he has had the opportunity to study various styles from wrestling, kung-fu (tiger style), American Kickboxing, Muay Thai and boxing. It wasn’t until his adult years that he began researching about Krav Maga and became enamored with its concept and principles.
Understanding his first motivation to learn martial arts and his realization that he wanted to have the physical and mental skill set needed to defend himself and his loved ones in real-world situations, he signed up for his first class. From that first class, he realized how different it was from other fighting styles, and needless to say, he never looked back.
Steven has been training for more than four years with the IKMF and has earned the rank of Graduate Level 1, making him an IKMF Certified Civilian Instructor. In all, he has six years of training experience.
Given his understanding of the streets and the realities of the potential violence one can encounter every day, he is able to bring a unique perspective to his teaching style.
Through Maccabees Krav Maga in Phoenix, Steven passes his knowledge and self-awareness to his students so if they are ever so unfortunate to encounter a violent or threatening situation, they can respond appropriately. He believes that violence is RARELY the answer, but when it is, it is the ONLY answer. Ultimately, he aspires to teach his students effective, real-world self defense so that they can walk in peace as he does.
