    Aren't the Dutch known to have a really good Kyo organization, or was that the Swedes?
    I saw a video a little while back from a Kyokushin tournament over in The Netherlands. There was blood and there were unconscious people. I approve.

    Already said but hardwood floors means no grappling at all not good for self defense looks like a lot of slap and tickle. I personally am also leery of any place that has that much production value thrown into their videos.

    The OP mentioned that these vids were shot in another town; let's not leap to the conclusion that they represent this guy's new school.

    FWIW I haven't seen any Krav Maga training in the US, but I met some KM instructors in Italy last year who I'd definitely trust to teach good, no BS self defense.

    Well there are pics of the new place : http://www.g-safe.nl/?page_id=436&lang=en#

    They're a bit dark but they are using mats. But it all looks very minimal.

    Maybe I should go to the official opening and take some pics?

    @JudoA: Are you accusing me of wearing green tights?!

    Looks like wall to wall jigsaw mats. Bear in mind that KM doesn't include a lot of high-amplitude throwing/falling; the main use for mats in that style is to facilitate relatively safe takedowns and basic ground defense training.

    Je noemt Maastricht; waar woon je (in de buurt) ? Er is onwijs goed kickboxen bijna overal in Nederland. Daarnaast zijn we ontzettend goed in Judo, Judo, Judo, en dat zou je in elke fitness zaak naast hun fitness kunnen vinden zowat.

    And what the purple belt said; just avoid the spliffs everyone smokes; the tobacco will kill your cardio.:munky2::munky2:

    I never said you were Peter Pan, just that you are where he's from. You might not wear green tights you might be more of a Wendy ;)

    Regarding Krav, isn't it meant to be a pretty hard workout? I'm pretty sure I've read somewhere (possibly this very site) that some styles are good for that. But don't take my word for it.

    But Judo and BJJ own though so do one of those. Or if you're more of a punchy-kicky person do Kyokushin or Muay Thai.

    This was already said, but isn't Holland very famous for their Kick-boxing and judo?
    Do those things. You're less likely to fail with them.
    Having said those things, you could still go and try a class and see with your own eyes what are they about.
    I would also recommend that you try some other stuff as well (like judo and kick-boxing) to have a good basis for comparison.

    @Syphillus: Sittard-Geleen, de Aars van Limburg.

    @ Necroyunus : I hate the smell of weed and I only smoke the occasional cigar.

    @JudoA: and the rest: Thanks for the advice.
