Sensei Nick Merchant was born in Brooklyn in 1976. He graduated with honors from SUNY Albany in 1998, majoring in English, with Minors in Psychology and Japanese Language. After college he started teaching English in NYC.

Nick has always had a lifelong appreciation of Martial Arts ever since his father took him to see kung fu movies in old Times Square. When Nick found our Training Center, it was a perfect fit. Having excelled in Krav Maga as a student, it was only a matter of time before he became a certified Krav Maga Instructor. He loves teaching self-defense and enjoys expanding his Martial Arts knowledge.
