Mark Messare is a colleague of Jonathan Fader. They met several years ago at a Nir Maman CT707 Instructor course and have kept in touch. Recently on a trip to New York, Jonathan stopped by Marks Head quarters in Burnt Hills, NY just outside of Albany and they sat down for a chat.

Mark has been doing Wing Chung since a teenager, has served in the US Air Force and more recently has discovered Krav Maga. Since then he has adapted his programs to be more self-defense oriented. Mark is the Co-Founder of APLEA to which has numerous affiliates all up the east coast. Jonathan and Mark have much in common as they both wish to better teach people how to defend themselves as well as constantly bettering themselves in the process.
