Self Defense.jpg


Do you think you need to study self-defense for years before you can handle a threat? Think again. With our Rapid React program, you will run through a crash course of basic self-defense skills to get you up to speed. You will take 6 classes, each one increasing your confidence, skills and toughness. Will you leave this class ready to get in a cage match? No. Will the person who attacks you regret that decision? Definitely. Come find out how quickly you can learn to bring the pain.

The headlines tell the story. Teenage girls in high school and college are victimized at alarming rates. Our class addresses the vulnerabilities of teen girls and young women in situations with strangers, intimate partners, and the space in-between. We’ll discuss physical and emotional ways in which young women can protect themselves. This is training, not blaming. Our students acquire tools & confidence to RESIST, and they learn how to establish a vigilant mindset.

This course is similar to our Rapid React program. It runs for 8 sessions and works best when we have a bunch of students who come as one group. We often conduct the class as a mother/daughter program. Grab your friends and learn how to unleash hellfire together!



We didn’t learn how to teach Rapid React by only taking 8 lessons: Self-defense is our obsession. If you want to make Krav Maga and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu a meaningful part of your life, come join the club. Unlimited weekly classes, great instructors, amazing students, and a lot of blood, sweat and tears. Well, maybe not SO much blood and tears, but A LOT of sweat.

Dean Gallucio.jpg



Dean Galluccio is a retired law enforcement officer and a lifelong practitioner of fighting arts.

In 2013 Dean opened New Jersey Predator Wrestling & Hybrid Martial Arts, which in 2017 became Rock Solid Krav Maga. Dean has combined his experiences as a law enforcement officer in New Jersey with his Krav Maga training to create the Rock Solid self-defense curriculum.

Along the way, he added the experiences of other instructors and students and expanded the curriculum to include critical components of ground fighting. Over time, Dean honed in on a series of vital techniques thahomedt make up our Rapid React program, the most comprehensive, short-order self-defense program available.

Dean believes strongly in an intense but very open approach to self-defense training. At Rock Solid, under Dean’s guidance, we provide a realistic training experience and encourage students to “follow what works,” ask a lot of questions and make suggestions.

Dean has been practicing Krav Maga since 2004, primarily training under Tony Racciatti of Krav Maga New Jersey, and earning an instructor’s certification in 2007 form Krav Maga master instructor Rohn Mizrahi of Krav Maga Federation in NYC. Dean has also attended seminars by Grandmasters Haim Zut and Eyal Yanilov of Israel. As a law enforcement officer, he executed thousands of arrests while serving as a detective and as a K-9 handler, and has received training in counter-terrorism, active shooters, emergency medical response. Dean has received citations and commendations from both the state of New Jersey and Essex County for his law enforcement service.

Dean also has martial arts training in Kenpo, Karate and Kung Fu, as well as certifications from the New Jersey State Police Training Commission in Method of Instruction, physical fitness training and Defense Tactics.

Joshua Katz.jpg



Josh has been training in Krav Maga for over 15 years.  Josh originally trained under Master Instructor Rhon Mizrachi in NYC, and eventually made his way to NJ to train briefly under Tony Racciatti and then full-time under Head Instructor Dean Galluccio.  In addition to Krav Maga, Josh also trained in Kenpo Karate under Sensei Francisco Vigoroux of Chile.

In 2013, Josh completed the instructor course under Dean Galluccio, and shortly afterward pioneered a 6-week women’s self-defense program.  The program has since developed into a standing class that meets twice a week.

Josh believes strongly in Krav Maga’s use of basic and natural movements to aid students in progressing quickly.  He is also devoted to Krav Maga’s “anything goes” mentality that is essential for survival.  As Josh likes to say, “My Krav Maga skills made me ready to protect myself, but when I feel threatened, I fall back on my willingness to do anything to survive.”

Big Mike.jpg



Mike Broncatello has been studying Krav Maga for the last 8 years and has been participating in various martial arts for over 20 years.  6 years ago, Mike joined Rock Solid to train with Master Instructor Dean Gallucio, before which he studied under Tony Racciatti of Krav Maga New Jersey.   Mike is an original member of the Street Fighting Committee, which examines the standard Krav Maga curriculum to improve & refine the techniques our instructors teach to students.  In 2016, Mike was tasked by Dean to create and implement a Krav Maga fundamentals program, in order to give beginner Krav Maga students the basic skills to defend themselves as well as participate in class. In 2018, Mike helped to formalize and develop an expanded Krav Maga program for kids.

Mike believes in customizing instruction to maximize each student’s particular strengths.  Krav Maga is not a “cookie cutter” martial art and everyone is different.  Techniques that will work for big people might not be the best choice for smaller people, and they way we teach adults is different than the way we teach kids. Mike’s goal is to teach techniques that individuals can rely on in the real world.  Techniques to protect themselves or their loved ones, and techniques to help them stand up to bullies.   Mike’s classes are focused, fun and place an emphasis on developing mental toughness and a “never quit” mindset.  In addition to Krav Maga, Mike is an avid practitioner of Kali as well as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
