    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Judo, Aikido or Krav Maga ?

    I've taken, for 12 years, a mix of karate and BJJ, cause my teacher was a 3rd dan in traditional wado karate and a brown belt in BJJ under Carlson Gracie, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

    I've moved to another city and now I have to find another dojo.

    What would you recommend, between Aikikai Aikido, Kodokan Judo and Krav Maga ? Why ?

    I am not trying to diminish any style, but I would like an honest opinion, comparing pro's and con's of these arts.

    Also, I am NOT interested in taking BJJ, which of course, is widely available here in Brazil

    Watch the classes and see which one you like better. Talk to the instructors, observe the students, and determine where you would like to train.

    As for the arts, I can only really speak for aikido, and as I am not an Aikikai stylist, I can't give you great detail. Aikikai runs the gamut from incredibly good to very very bad in terms of quality of technique and instruction. Depending on the attitude and ability of the instructor, you will either learn a good number of suplementary techniques and principles that you can attach to what you already know, or you end up with totally cooperative, compliant, "spiritual" training that is very far removed from reality. If you had Tomiki or Yoshinkan aikido availible, you might consider them first.

    Check it all out, see what you like.

    Got school websites?

    I'd say either Judo (to help even MORE in your takedowns) or Krav Maga (more self-defence oriented.) It really depends on the school (instructors and other students) though.

    Getting a shot off (or not) is not as important as muzzle control.

    yeah the problem is you get shot in the face when you grab a gun and move it towards the sky when it's pointed at your chest

    not to mention NOT moving out of the way but instead attempting a groin kick...

    Sure, if someone is dumb enough to do that. Is that really what Krav Maga teaches???

    The priorities are (a) muzzle control - which includes your own body manipulation, (b) trigger control and then (c) weapon control. In most situations, a kick to the groin will increase the chances of that head shot.

    the problem with styles like Krav Maga is that it's pretty diffuclt to practice at something close to full speed/fullpower.
