The Official Krav
Can someone please give me the proverbial skinny on the issue of "who teaches the official Krav Maga? Are there different styles? Different governing bodies? What is preventing them from being united as one body?

As far as I know we don't have many Krav Maga specialists here ... and for that matter most Krav Maga is taught as a "self defense" class at schools who learning towards the McDojo/Bulldhido way of doing things , so ... ummm ... good luck in your search and welcome to Bullshido .

Did you search the site? One of the FAQs has a section specifically on Krav. Can't think which one right now, hence suggesting you use the search function.

there was some trademarking dispute involving Krav Maga in the US, with whoever runs the los angeles KM facility (that Bas trains at occasionally) filing suit to copyright the name Krav.
Apparently a good business move as they've made bank off of selling instructors licenses at weekend seminars and making **** every gym an affiliate, for a price.

Search my name and Krav, the thread will pop up under the name "Testing a New FAQ" If you get the the RBSD section you'll find your answers.
