I have known Avi for over 25 years. When I first met him he was already an accomplished martial artist and over the years I have seen him continue honing his knowledge and skills to becoming a world renewed leader and trainer in the fighting arts. One thing hasn’t changed about him, a trait that astonishingly persisted throughout decades, is his passion and dedication to his chosen vocation. I saw in him qualities rarely seen in teacher of this ageless art: preserving tradition and innovation, both at the same time. He seemed to have figured out how to balance both- the need to transmit the tradition unchanged as handed down to us, and yet continually test the techniques and innovative in search of a practical and down to earth approach.
