Israel’s Ken Kerbis enters the Battle Riot

24-year old Ken Kerbis looks to make history as the top ranked Israeli grappler makes his debut on April 5th in the 40-wrestler Battle Riot.

A former Staff Sergeant and recipient of the “Independence Day Award of Excellence” in the Israeli Army, Kerbis wrestled throughout his time in the Israeli army.

Committed to climbing the rankings, Kerbis would sometimes have to sneak out of the base, drive to compete on the Israeli wrestling circuit and then drive back without his commanders knowing he was gone.

Known for his Kaio-Ken (over the shoulder legomatic), Kerbis is one of the most decorated Israeli competitors in the sport today.

A fearless grappler in the the Israeli Wrestling League Academy, the 5’11’ middleweight looks to make a global splash on April 5th as the first Israeli to wrestle on American soil in a major wrestling organization.
