So what's the consensus on Keysi Fighting Method?
A couple of years ago I was intrigued by "KFM" from the Batman movie and I went to there site and signed up for there forum. Well with the internal fighting and vauge information on how they train the site really wasn't that helpfull and I just went about my business. However just yesterday, out of the blue, I got an email from the keysi folks.
With the email was a link to to a short video of KFM. http://www.keysikfm.com/video/
This is the email I received...

KFM EVENTS 2008
There is a very busy CALENDAR for KFM in 2008. A vast choice of events for everyone to attend, ranging from:
OPEN SEMINARS (1 day seminars open to everybody. Both martial artists and non-martial artists are welcome to come and get a taste of Keysi Fighting Method. The practical, street application of the system is both easy to learn and easy to assimilate into anyone’s arsenal of personal defense. If you have heard about KFM in the movies, now it’s your chance to come and “experience” KFM for yourself!)
KFM EVOLUTION COURSES (6 days courses with final certification. A deeper investigation inside the heart of Keysi Fighting Method: learn pure raw application, from the streets and for the streets, following a learning program that will take you though all the how’s and why’s)
IDP INTRO SEMINARS (2 days seminars: Introduction to the Revolutionary Keysi Fighting Method Instructor Development Program. This exclusive experience is open for those interested in becoming professionally-certified instructors in KFM. You will learn the very heart of Keysi Fighting Method as you get a closer look at the program, the training, the structure, the organization of KFM as outlined in the Instructor Development Program)
PRO-IDP PACKAGE (Yearly course: Professional Instructor Development Program)
I'm curious if KFM has been proven to be just RBSD LARPing.
Looking at the video it seems that KFM is just Krav Maga v2.0, and they train to fight just KFM practitioners than being able to fight various other fighters like MMA does.
Are there any KFM members here on this forum that can support the claims of KFM being a viable fighting system or are we looking at another RBSD system meant to sucker people, collect money, and leave the practitioner high and dry? If so, it seems like we're facing an American invasion of KFM in January.
Well that's odd. I can't get the video to come up when I click the link anymore.
The video link seems to be working again.
Dude, Christian Bale says its great...what more of an endorsement do you need? A Hollywood actor thinks its effective, **** sign me up.

I figure since they've been so vauge about what they're about that they have to grasp at straws in order to promote themselves.

Reason: Better explanation for posting it.
You notice that all this stuff is ramping up just around the time that the buzz for "The Dark Knight Returns" begins as well. Hell, there's already a teaser trailer on yahoo movies.
I'unno, it doesn't look like a really effective system... and why the Hell do they put their hands behind their heads while elbowing?
But as long as they're not claiming anything false, let them do head-grab elbows.
