Steve Comas is a Bronx native and had resided there all his life until recently moving to Phoenix, Arizona. Growing up at a time when the Bronx had a reputation for being one of the “rougher” boroughs to live in, he often found himself attempting to avoid physical confrontations.
He began training martial arts to better deal with his environment as a teen. Throughout his youth, he has had the opportunity to study various styles from wrestling, kung-fu (tiger style), American Kickboxing, Muay Thai and boxing. It wasn’t until his adult years that he began researching about Krav Maga and became enamored with its concept and principles.
Understanding his first motivation to learn martial arts and his realization that he wanted to have the physical and mental skill set needed to defend himself and his loved ones in real-world situations, he signed up for his first class. From that first class, he realized how different it was from other fighting styles, and needless to say, he never looked back.
Steven has been training for more than 7 years in Krav Maga and has earned the rank of Graduate Level 1 and is an IKMF Certified Civilian Instructor.
Given his understanding of the streets and the realities of the potential violence one can encounter every day, he is able to bring a unique perspective to his teaching style.
Through Maccabees Krav Maga in Phoenix, Steven passes his knowledge and self-awareness to his students so if they are ever so unfortunate to encounter a violent or threatening situation, they can respond appropriately. He believes that violence is RARELY the answer, but when it is, it is the ONLY answer. Ultimately, he aspires to teach his students effective, real-world self defense so that they can walk in peace as he does.

Super nice instructor. I’m currently taking his classes and he is very great for beginners and is very patient. He knows what he’s doing and enjoys it as well. Fantastic class:)

I've trained at a handful of Krav Maga schools and this one is exceptionally good.

A style of training is only as good as the instructor teaching it. Steven is the REAL DEAL. He has actual experience with real world conflict, while many instructors out there do not. He is also the only International Krav Maga Federation certified instructor in Phoenix. You will learn practical techniques and have fun with each class!

I highly recommend Maccabees Krav Maga! When I started taking classes with instructor Steven Comas, I had no background in martial arts or self defense. Instructor Steven Comas does an excellent job of explaining and demonstrating techniques.
The classes are interactive and very practical. The instructor is always trying to improve his teaching and organize his classes so that his students get the most benefit out of it. He gives individual feedback when needed so that you can learn the techniques correctly. You will walk out of this class feeling better prepared to fight when you must and escape when you can.

The instructor is very knowledgeable about what he is teaching and helps you on your technique.
I enjoy learning Krav Maga and I believe it teaches you how to protect yourself better than the other martial arts for real life situations.
I’ve reviewed Jui Jitsu, wing chung, tai kwon do, karate and Krav Maga for about 4 months and in the end I chose Krav Maga.

My experience at Maccabees Krav Maga has been nothing but EXTRAORDINARY! Instructor Steven is EXCELLENT at his craft! I've been a student at Maccabees Krav Maga since the inception and I've had nothing but a great experience. Instructor Steven is patient and you can tell he really enjoys teaching the Men, Women and Children and is passionate about making sure every student gets his undivided attention during class, he makes learning Krav Maga FUN... yet he trains you to be able to defend yourself, in any situation.
I HIGHLY recommend that if you haven't signed up for membership at Maccabees Krav Maga, that you do so ASAP!
Everyday you are not a member of this school, you are jeopardizing your safety and the safety of your loved ones.
I'm a member FOR LIFE! You will be too, once you join!

This place recently opened. Steven is great with the kids in the children's class and engages them with techniques and fun activities to keep them moving and learning. The adult class was amazing as well. Steven created a positive learning environment and gave us a great workout in addition to the lessons. He's easy to work with and accommodating. Great place led by a talented instructor.
