Initially looking for a way to change up his workouts, Amit took a introductory Krav Maga class in 2010, and immediately appreciated the no nonsense approach to self defense, continued to train and attained instructor status in 2013. The opportunity to start his own Self Defense center earlier this year led to a major career switch from healthcare, one which he jumped into with both feet. A huge proponent of “principles over techniques”, his classes manage to be both intense and relaxed. Amit continues to train, teach, and plans to take his black belt test with Fit to Fight in 2018.
He has over 15 years of martial arts experience in various styles: various Kung fu styles, Indonesian and Filipino martial arts and, of course, Krav Maga. Heinz has previously taught martial arts for the University of Cincinnati and for the Mayfield Heights and SELREC community education programs.
Outside of martial arts, Heinz focuses on being the best father and husband he can be.
