In this study, we present a new classifier that combines the distance-based algorithm K-Nearest Neighbor and statistical based Naïve Bayes Classifier. That is equipped with the power of both but avoid their weakness. The performance of the proposed algorithm in terms of accuracy is experimented on some standard datasets from the machine-learning repository of University of California and compared with some of the art algorithms. The experiments show that in most of the cases the proposed
