About My Business:


Cottonwood Combat was founded by our Chief Instructor Tim Hillis. As a Law Enforcement professional and Use of Force Instructor with over 10 years current experience in Israeli hand to hand combat systems (from members of the Israeli Defense Forces Infantry, Special Forces, and others) plus over 30 years martial arts training; Mr. Hillis has a unique perspective from which to teach men and women how to defend themselves faster than ever! “I began training in Krav Maga in 1999. Due to many years of training in systems which were similar, I successfully completed my first instructor course in spring of 2000. Currently I serve as the Arizona Representative for Israeli Krav International. I also hold a 4th dan in an eclectic system which incorporates techniques and principles from Tae Kwon Do, 2 styles of Karate, Jeet Kune Do, Japanese Ju Jutsu, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Sambo and Filipino Concepts. My search for realism in training drove me head long into Krav Maga and I was hooked after my first exposure. I consider myself very fortunate to be a part of the most evolved and effective form of Krav Maga to date. Taught to and used everyday by the YAMAM, Sayeret Duvdevan and elite security personnel, IKI Krav Maga is proven several times daily on the battle field and the streets / dark alley ways of Israel and the world. While I have held rank in Krav from other organizations, I recently decided to test for Black Belt with IKI. Even though it has never been about rank for me, I am finding the advanced skills in IKI to be the most practical of ANY organization I have ever been a part of. So my goal is to catch my rank in IKI Krav Maga with my other dan rankings as soon as I can absorb the material. The IKI advanced skills are not about fancy moves, or athleticism (spinning/flying techniques), but about more efficient ways to deal with ever increasingly skilled opponents! In my humble opinion, this is just another proof of the modern evolution of Israeli Krav International’s Krav Maga.” We will begin the process for accepting MMA fighters to promote soon. We have some heavy backing coming soon, this will be a great opportunity for beginning fighters in Northern Arizona.
