Malcolm Rivers

Malcolm Rivers began his self-defense journey early in life as the quiet son of a reformed gang banger in a violent neighborhood. Since then he’s spent years studying, formally and otherwise, the role of predatory violence in urban environments. He wrestled in high school, found Krav Maga in college and, upon moving to the Washington D.C. area, fell into an on again off again romance with Danzan Ryu Jujutsu.

Malcolm now teaches self protection skills with Nova Self Defense and District Combatives. He also manages rooms full of drunken belligerents for extra money. In his free time he enjoys cooking, video games, and doing what his girlfriend tells him.
