"Who the f*ck is Chuck Norris?"

The Unicorn
President of Everything

The unicorn is unbreakable and immortal. Its horn can quickly put you to death or easily reanimate you. So we suggest you better not mess with the beast. Instead, get empowered by its magic force while joining the YCF™ family.

Besides, the unicorn is the most beautiful creature on the planet and the inventor of any martial arts joke you have ever heard (Now bow and say 'Oss!').

“One's destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.” (Henry Miller)

Benjamin Wiater

​When Ben first encountered Krav Maga, it gave him a bloody nose. In the years afterwards it gave him more strength, more confidence, more awareness, a new consciousness of himself, others and the world around him. It's one of his passions to help others experience this process - if possible even without a bloody nose.
