(Update: Clarifying offer of free training)

BEND, Ore. (KTVZ)- Hunter Allen is a Bend resident who believes it’s important for people to know how to defend themselves.

He is the owner and head instructor of Tig Tactical in Bend, which is a self-defense training center.

Krav Maga is a military self-defense and fighting system developed for the Israel Defense Forces and Israeli security forces. It is derived from a combination of techniques used in aikido, boxing, judo, karate and wrestling. It is known for its focus on real-world situations and its extreme efficiency.

For his nonprofit, Stop Sudden Violence, Allen has been offering free Krav Maga offers free training to recent victims of physical violence, including trafficking. He said Sunday he is expanding that offer to include school teachers and staff.

In fact, his goal is to train every school teacher and staff member in the entire country, starting here in Central Oregon.

After making a recent online post about his offer, Allen said he’s received a lot of enthusiastic responses from people ready to receive training, from doctors and coffee shop workers to teachers, .

His motivation behind the offer is simple: “The more people that have efficient training to save themselves, the safer an environment is.”

NewsChannel21’s Bola Gbadebo is speaking with Allen to find out more about his nonprofit and why he believes Krav Maga is an important skill to acquire.

Her report will be on NewsChannel 21 at 6.
