    Krav Maga Redux





    Omega Supreme suggested another or new thread on Krav Maga, as the Pete M. vs Bullshido thread was drifting.

    So here we go.

    I googled Krav Maga and here is the first hit.
    http://www.kravmaga.com/


    Plus, Omega's statement on the Pete. M. thread :

    Omega replied:
    "I offer Krav Maga classes. I have a lot of respect for Krav Maga that is taught correctly. My experience is you've got a 50/50 chance to find one that actually knows what they're talking about."


    IMO, the jury is out. Omega teaches Krav Maga, I'd like to hear your extended opinion.

    Tell us about the Krav you respect.

    I suppose I should give my opinion.

    For the most part, Krav Maga looks to me like another commercial opportunity for a lot of those who teach it.

    Adding martial arts aerobicize type stuff would be a good example of that. Nothing wrong with it in context, however, the false sense of security a naive person might get from that sort of training (conditioning is good, for sure) could be dangerous.

    Nothing wrong with that IF the quality of training is there, including alive training with some sort of realistic resistance. Which tends to get dicey when dealing with sharp things, eye scratching, ball squeezing, knee stomping, etc. The opportunity to get one's ass kicked relatively safely in training is extremely important to having a realistic idea of what a real confrontation could be like.

    Where I train, at BHJJC, Amir Perets teaches Krav Maga. Except I don't think its Krav Maga, its more like MMA for the streets. I see them doing boxing, Muay Thai, wrestling, submissions etc. Not too much nonsense. In that sense I think Krav is OK. Amir has trained with many many pro MMA guys that come through the gym, so his technique and skillset is pretty good. I think if your just some krotty dork who got certified as a krav instructor, its going to be sucky.

    Here is a Krav Maga "Black Belt Exam". Not sure which level of black belt, but not high from what I gather from the video.

    If I had to give a number it would be 90/10 that if you do Krav Maga your going to be a douche bag that now thinks your some sort of Mossad hand to hand killing machine.

    I sort of look at Krav Maga the same way I look at WW2 Combatives.
    If your being taught by Carl Cestari and you are learning Judo(insert list of acceptable judo alternatives) in conjunction with it.
    Your probably going to be alright.
    Still though it seems to me you would be much better served learning Dog Brothers if self defense was your primary goal.
    Of the single rapier fight between valiant men, having both skill, he that is the best wrestler, or if neither of them can wrestle, the strongest man most commonly kills the other, or leaves him at his mercy.
