Israeli Cruiserweight Boxing Champion Ran “The Jewish Warrior” Nakash will be at the Leon & Toby Cooperman JCC on Wednesday, July 8, 7:00pm to offer a free boxing and Krav Maga Clinic and to promote his upcoming fight at Prudential Center in Newark this Saturday, July 11th. Children and teens ages five to seventeen are encouraged to participate in the clinic in which Ran will demonstrate and teach various boxing and self-defense maneuvers. The clinic will be followed by a “Meet and Greet” where guests will have the opportunity to learn a little more about this “intense” fighter. His background is very interesting.

He is trained in a number of martial arts including Muay-Thai, kick boxing, and karate. Nakash is also the Chief Instructor of the Israeli Defense Force’s Krav Maga Unit; making him Israel’s highest ranking authority on this form of hand-to-hand combat.
