About THE INSTRUCTOR
Hi I’m Max! I’m Russian, born and raised in Ukraine during the breakdown of the USSR. Like most boys during that time, I was enrolled in martial arts at a young age. Starting with Shotokan Karate at age six, I continued with that for five years, participating in and winning competitions. Shotokan Karate is a straight-forward martial art excellent for establishing basic techniques, but a fight with a boxer made me question whether or not one martial arts discipline was enough. So I switched to Kick Boxing, which seemed more practical, and also added Judo classes for the wrestling, grabbing, and throwing techniques.
By the time I was in university, I was able to take military courses in lieu of the draft. This is where I met the trainer I’d work with for another ten years, the last five of which I also spent as an instructor. This trainer had been teaching Russian military special forces for over twenty years, using techniques that were brutal but highly effective.

The method included work with weapons and miscellaneous objects, as well as psychological training and the basics of first aid. It was not a sports discipline, and it turned out to be exactly what I had been searching for. When I came to the United States in 2014, I began looking for a self-defense class to continue the training I’d been practicing in Ukraine. After attending several different classes which proved unsatisfactory, however, I considered creating my own class. Working together with friends, I soon realized this was the way to move forward.
What’s unique about the COMA (Combat Martial Arts) is that it allows you to overcome a stronger opponent, working at only 25-30% of your power. It also includes a lot of shocking moves that don’t require extended repetition. It’s a perfect solution for anyone who feels they need an advantage when confronted with a larger attacker.
