    I think that Krav maga is good for self-defence against an untrained attacker - in some ways better than Kickboxing (weapon defence, multiple attackers, surprise grab), in other ways worse (keeping your guard up, measured attacks, contact training, taking a punch, etc.) But if you had a Kickboxer and Krav maga expert fighting each other in an MMA style match, I'd say Kickboxer hands down all other things being equal. If a Kickboxer attacker a Krav Maga guy on the street, that would be interesting to see.

    But I guess this is all my unsubstantiated opinion and not a reply to your question ;)

    Krav Maga teaches gun disarms. Bad, krav maga! Bad!

    All the "close the distance, and ELBOW SMASH KILL" crap you hear in alot of RBSD as well as Military LARPer type places doesn't hold water when going up against a seasoned kickboxer or submission grappler.
    Okay if I sig that? I love the term ELBOW SMASH KILL.

Ironically I find that, that kind of stuff works best not on untrained street brawlers, but rather Bullshidoka of Krotty schools especially that have been trained to throw comitted punches that just flow so perfectly into that stuff.

    O rly? Because I've found that elbowing both kickboxers and submission grapplers in the head works quite well.

    Tell you what though, if I ever come up against someone that a good solid floating petal elbow DOESN'T work against, I think I'm going to scream like a little fairy and run like hell.

    "HAR HAR! YOU JUST ELBOWED ME IN THE HEAD AND I DON'T CARE."

    "AIIIEEE!!!" *run*

    Try taking up sprinting. I've found that to be an excellent defense against mutliple attackers.

    No doubt about that.

    Actually its also highly unlikely for me to ever get into a fight with a person, not to mention multiple people or get stabbed, but I'd just like to train for "just in case."

    I think that sums up the position of a good many of us here on the forums, myself foremost among them.
