Chris Gagne, TKMA Lead Instructor

Chris Gagne

Head Instructor

Christopher Gagne began training in Krav Maga in 2004.  He became a certified instructor in 2007.  Over the years, he has trained with various world-renowned expert instructors, including Eyal Yanilov, Avi Moyal, Gabi Noah, Amnon Darsa, Haim Sasson, Tamir Gilad, Megan Berkman and Jean-Paul Jauffret. 

His primary goal is to teach people how to protect themselves in real-life circumstances. Safety is the primary goal, and he blends situational awareness into his training sessions that emphasize avoidance and escape and fighting only when necessary to protect yourself and others. 


He offers group classes, private and semi-private, as well as seminars, staff training, and corporate events.  His training focus is civilian self-defence – adult, women-only, youth and kids, and corporate training.  Training is open to all levels. You don’t need experience, and you don’t need to possess size or athleticism.  Krav Maga is based on natural reflexes, so techniques are easy to learn and perform. 


Chris’s classes are challenging, interactive and fun.  Questions are welcome and a vital part of learning. If you don’t understand something, please ask. Feedback is always welcome. Self-defence is a serious topic, but classes are enjoyable and engaging. Work hard, but have fun!

Christopher also holds a master’s degree in history and owns a second business – the History Learning Academy (HLA), which offers history education services. He also tutors English, philosophy and writing. He has two daughters, Maddie and Ruby, who also train in Krav Maga.
