    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    I saw this guy driving around Hwy 121 the other day, he had some SUV airbrushed with advertisments for the school. The address is pretty close to me so I looked him up and blew it off as BS. Schools have been fudging karate creds forever, I think Krav is the new thing now. What concerns me is the growing trend of schools who claim to teach BJJ around here but have very suspicious credentials.

    Evidently it's not too hard to get a licence to teach Krav Maga. i personally know of three different guys that have certifications and not one of them has ever studied Krav Maga .:bssign: I used to wonder if they weren't giving Krav Maga instructor licenses as the prize in boxes of Cracker Jacks. However they are getting them, it's become a way for bull **** - o MA teachers to further convince clueless bovine potential students that the bogus self defense techniques they teach are "teh r34l d3@dly"

    It's the reason most here think Krav Maga is crap. Too many fly by night licensed instructors. Fairly bullshit.

    I don't remember the name, but there was a newbie in newbietown recently that trains with this guy.

    My only criticism -- why do so many martial arts instructors have to call themselves 'Tiger' ? (I thought it was mostly TKD schools, but now Krav may be the new TKD...)

    As an indication, the only guy in my town who is licenced to teach KM is also one of only three Canadians licenced to teach tai-bo.
