Peter Eisenberg (Co-owner of Valley Self-Defense, Civilian, Women, Kids Instructor) has been training in Krav Maga for over 9 years, with over 6 years of instructor experience. Peter played football in college and years later he was looking for something to get himself in shape and start to get the competitive blood flowing again. From his first class at Valley Self Defense with Jon Nietzell, he was hooked. Over the years, Peter has gained a number of certifications, including Law Enforcement, VIP (Body Guard), Lead Instructor, as well as Stay Away – Women’s Self-Defense and Kid’s Krav Maga. Peter is also one of the first IKMF certified Defensive Shooting Instructors in the United States. Peter has achieved the rank of Expert 1 after testing in Israel with the International Krav Maga Federation (IKMF)’s Global Instructor Team. ​One of Peter’s biggest motivators in his teaching is helping others. Whether that be encouraging women to listen and respond to their inner alarm or teaching children how stand up to bullies at school, Peter’s goal is to help all his students achieve Krav Maga founder Imi Sde-Or’s vision that all people “may walk in peace.”
