Slow your roll Cap. Certain areas have automatic front page links. The next review, news article, or Phrost Rant will work you off the front page.
Sorry to disappoint you, but it isn't as Cap described. Oh and LOL@professional.
Thanks that was funny.
Good to know. I am still gonna sell it for extra credit though. Haha. Seriously though It is Fake, thanks for clarifying my confusion on why this was picked.
Teacher didn't go for it. :(
Fair review of RDS. Few things...their guy isn't the top Krav Maga instructor in Arizona, he is just the head instructor for their schools. Also, everything you described about Tactical Black is part of Krav Maga, they've just taken out some of the "cooler" stuff and put it into a different program so that they can charge more for it.
If so, you should know, they do peg Ackerman as the head Krav guy for Arizona.
Tactical Black is closer to Kickboxing and submission wrestling than Krav.
And also Hammerfists, what is your opinion on RDS? Am I being over analytical saying that you are getting sort of defensive of REACT? Maybe you train there and are nutriding?
I think you misread me...Definitely not defending RDS at all, I'm not a fan. I have trained there briefly (did a 3 month thing when I moved to AZ) and as much as I love Krav I just couldn't take it anymore there. Great facilities and for fitness I really enjoyed some of the bag classes, but the harassment and heavy handed business tactics were far too much to make it enjoyable. Plus I wanted to do Krav and progress in it, not their own system of Tactical Black but they push the upgrade endlessly. I know a few others who have left for feeling the same way.
I have been training in Krav off and on for over 10 years and have trained in numerous schools. I've also done some Muay Thai and BJJ, but for me the Krav system is the best for what I need out of it...it just can really depend on the school sometimes.
You can get most all the elements of Tactical Black at other Krav schools because it is already part of Krav Maga (except for some of the offensive shooting stuff they have added). For instance the normal Krav curriculum has fairly extensive ground fighting and sparring material in it already.
