Okay, that one would be harder to do! Sometimes our Shihan will walk on us while we're doing 'em. Heh. I'm going to go ahead and not mention the 4 man push up in class on Tuesday...

Fast forward 18months later, I am deployed to Iraq and one of my neighbors mailed me a book called Brotherhood of Warriors. It is an autobiography of a Jewish American that used his Israeli birthright and joined the IDF straight out of High School. He didnt just walk into it, he had to do the formal application, live on a communal farm and actually learn Hebrew
Anyways he ended up going to one of the counter terrorism units and he said of all of the training, the Krav Maga was the most demanding and most feared and caused the most injury. It wasnt just two hours a day, everything they did involved adding Krav Maga. He spent a great deal of time talking about it and the book is worth a read. It will tell you far more than a few internet video clips can
He also talked about how the Krav maga saved his life while working as a counter terrorist not in a cage environment

You don't have to go to Israel or join the IDF to find da real Krav Maga. You just have to apply common sense and know where to look. Like I said earlier I've already found da R34! and was due to finding training for professionals by professionals as opposed to a strip mall taught by a former TKD instructor looking to cash in on the hype.

Didn't anyone ever tell him a fat man could never be a ninja
You can't practice Judo just to win a Judo Match! You practice so that no matter what happens, you can win using Judo!
The key to fighting two men at once is to be much tougher than both of them.
Are you asshole still on this?
Well my instructor is an israeli and former IDF. Plus the school does have a training week in Israel every year so I guess 'I found da R34!' ?
Oh and the more KM threads the better :problem:
(Btw I fucking love the new emoticons!)
So, it seems to be the general consensus that only teh R34L Joos can teach teh R34L Krav.
Ta'ase li tova!
Not jews, israeli's. Actually having learned KM in the IDF gives more credibility.
Makes sense so why the butthurt?
Of course, you can only learn the r34l judo from a Japanese shihan and the r34l BJJ from a Brazilian black belt too
You say towmayto. I say towmahto. Who's butthurt?

Pfft. As a military veteran and a martial artist, I have argued time and time again - the best martial artists and the best unarmed fighters are almost always civilians. The reasons are simple. Unarmed fighting can only be a small part of military training. Civilians have more time to train and access to better quality instruction.
The argument that Israelis have teh r34L Krav is fucking retarded. I can't believe anyone would take that notion seriously. "But, but, but, he's ISRAELI for fucks sake! He must be a badass!!!111" This is actually my first experience talking to Israeli nuthuggers.
