    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    I have seen many discussions (and a multitude of side comments)on these forums about Krav Maga. It seems the general school of thought here at Bullshido is that... well... Krav Maga Sucks. I was wondering if someone could make me a bullet point list of the reasons you feel Krav Maga is in adequate, what are the fundemental flaws or holes in the system? I am sure I could go through and pull from all the other threads, but I am pretty sure that someone here has to know what I am asking for off the top of his/her head.

    Thanks a bunch in advance!

    PS In reference to SCARS, what the **** does "Americana yourself" mean?

    My response was that dying was easy, anyone can die, even the youngest babe. I do something harder. I live for him."

    Do a search, amn. This was discussed ad nauseum.

    I, for one, train in KM, and obviously don't think that it sucks.
    You say what about my rice?

    I personally don't like the marketing.
    But that's probably what you need to "break into" the self-defense market in North America.

    And apparently there are many poorly trained instructors (what else is new?)

    A good friend of mine trains in Krav Maga. From what I've seen, it seems very direct and effective. If I had time and wasn't training in san soo, I'd probably hit up the KM studio. It's the system of the Israeli military, nuff said.

    Krav Maga, when done/taught correctly is a really great fighting system. It can be very effective and is fairly quick and easy to acheive a good level in skill in.

    As someone mentioned the problem with Krav Maga is people started to try to make money selling/teaching it.

    Most schools that teach Krav Maga, teach it as a supplement to another art. They aren't Krav Maga school's they are TKD, karate, kung fu, or whatever schools that also teach KM. The person teaching KM has attended a "How to teach Krav Maga" seminar and is paying a boat load of money to the offical KM people so they can use the name "Krav Maga."

    I've never heard anyone say there was anything fundamentally wrong with KM or it is ineffective when done correctly.

    As most of use have said, KM as a fighting system is just fine, but many of the KM schools suck.

    Krav Maga:

    good points-
    1. good for beating up muslims, especially if you're jewish
    2. anti-scimitar defense is second to none
    3. excellent for realistic training in avoiding thrown rocks, bottles, molotov cocktails, and other projectiles
    4. desert survival training and oasis finding course is fantastic
    5. teaches you how to avoid desert illusions

    bad points:
    1. may make your muslim neighbors pissed off at you
    2. doesn't provide realistic training in how to peaceably establish a palestinian state
    3. during desert training, training partners may appear to turn into delicious hot dogs and/or hamburgers

    Yeah, and that suicide car bomb defense needs a little work too.
