Director and Head Instructor
As Director and Head Instructor of Apex Self Defence, Roen has always held an important view that training has to be consistent, and as reality based as possible.
Spending some of his years in Russia, Roen experienced a few situations that without training found him lucky to survive. Once repatriated, Roen made it his goal to develop as many skills as possible to assist in avoiding and dealing with attacks and assaults.
Starting off with a foundation in boxing, Roen went on to train krav maga under Krav Maga International (KMI) with head trainers for the Israeli Defence Force, Ran Nakash and Itay Dannenberg.
After years of training, Roen went on to start cross training in BJJ, MMA and Muay Thai, taking any elements from other martial arts in order to create a more effective self defence program.
