My name is Evangelos Garbis. Through my many years of combative martial arts experience I have developed a tremendous passion for sharing what I have learned. I believe that information has the potential power of transforming lives.  My combative arts training began at the age of 8, when my parents enrolled me in Judo, due to the fact that I was bullied in school, something that is still common today.

At the age of 17 I served in the military service in Athens, Greece, until I was honorably discharged. I then moved to the United States of America, where I was introduced to Mr. James Hageman, a fourth degree Black Belt in Hakkoryu Ju-Jitsu and a retired United States Secret Service Agent. Mr. Hageman shared with me his extensive experience in dealing with aggression both mentally and physically. I credit the foundation of my teaching skills to the life lessons learned while studying with Mr. Hageman.

Through the years I have enriched my hot weapons, tactical knife, tactical shooting, tactical rappelling, and close quarter combat skills by training with some of the most currently recognized tactical trainers in the industry.  I have been a featured instructor for the Sark Security Group at several specialized courses at Fort Bragg, where I have gained a growing no-nonsense, to the point reputation among soldiers and para troopers alike.

I have traveled globally instructing civilians as well as Special Operating Units preparing for overseas deployment in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom in close quarter tactics. I have also had the privilege of training employees of the United States Presidential Guard, N.Y.P.D. Tactical Training Unit, United States Coast Guard Tactical Unit, FBI, DEA, and many SWAT team members within the United States.

Through all my experience I have discovered that the everyday civilian faced with a real world street crime (i.e. mugging, car jacking, rape) would greatly benefit from training in the Krav Maga CT707 system. Inspired by this system I have created the 3E Self Defense program. Not solely focused on the technical physical skills of the combat system but also on the mental preparedness training CT707 is famous for.

3E Self Defense can help you unlock your potential to Evaluate, Engage and Empower you to deal with any physical threat that may endanger you or your loved ones.
