The Sensei

Massad Ayoob
Massad Ayoob

A true five-tools player: instructor, author, expert witness, shooter, cop. He's been there, done that, given the scars. Through his Massad Ayoob Group (MAG) he provides some of the finest self-defense training available. I had the privilege of attending his MAG 20: Classroom – Armed Citizens’ Rules of Engagement: an eye-opening, life-changing experience. Can't wait to add the shooting portion of MAG 20. If you're interested in self-defense, and dammit, you should be, look hard for a MAG class coming anywhere near you.

Massad is also releasing several books, including the upcoming Deadly Force - Understanding Your Right To Self Defense.

  1. Fear Gail... above all fear her... :)

    1. Never fear, Gail likes the photo -- especially after I sharpened it so you can see all of the scars and worry lines she's given Mas.

  2. I'm proud to say that I've known Mas as both an instructor and a friend for almost twenty years now, and let there be no doubt--he is the real deal, even if he does drink Rolling Rock. (BLECH!)
