Todd Mashburn is an Instructor for Fit to Fight® Georgia. He has been training in the highly aggressive and effective Israeli martial art for over 15 years and has been teaching martial arts for nearly the same amount of time. Todd began his road to becoming a Krav Maga Instructor in 2001 when he attended his first Krav Maga instructor course in Knoxville, TN. After becoming ‘hooked’ on the first phase of instruction, Todd continued to pursue knowledge of the system by traveling regularly to Los Angeles for additional Krav Maga training at the Krav Maga National Training Center. Rather than ending his pursuit of knowledge and stopping after becoming a Phase C certified instructor, he continued his training displaying his never quit attitude and entered into the Expert Series of training. His Expert Series training path led him to becoming a Krav Maga Blackbelt Instructor in 2006, where he was also awarded the 2006 Marni Levine Fighting Spirit Award, an award that is presented to the Instructor that exhibits a tenacious fighting spirit, understanding of the system, and refuses to yield when faced with adversity.
In addition to being a Krav Maga Instructor, Todd is also a 20 year law enforcement veteran. After graduating from Georgia Southern University in 1994 with a degree in Justice Studies, Todd joined the Statesboro Police Department. In 1998, he became a member of the Bulloch County Sheriff’s Office Drug Suppression Team and has been with the department ever since.
Todd currently serves as a Captain with the Bulloch County Sheriff’s Office and is the department's head training officer. He is a State of Georgia POST certified General Instructor and also holds Specialized Instructor Certifications in Firearms, Defensive Tactics, Driver Training, and Speed Detection Devices. He is a certified instructor in Pressure Point Control Tactics (P.P.C.T.), Controlled F.O.R.C.E., CPR, the Advanced Air Taser, the Expandable Baton and numerous other certifications. Todd is also a 2010 graduate of the prestigious F.B.I. National Academy.
