A blog?

Linn Haraldsvik: owner, manager, CEO, head of marketing, and janitor at Rencounter Krav Maga. Certified Krav maga instructor (Krav Maga Global), Primal Move instructor (a.k.a Ground Force Method), and MSc International and European Politics.

I started building up the krav maga school Rencounter in Edinburgh in Jan/Feb 2015.

It’s an exciting journey for me, and I don’t know where it will end, but I’m enjoying the experience and learning tons of cool and useful things along the way.
