    I worked with a couple of professional KM instructors recently and would give them a big thumbs up, both as teachers and re. the "realism" of what they were doing. Some of it wasn't to my taste, but I'd recommend it to beginners who wanted solid, relatively short-term/high-percentage self defense training.

    Krav Maga is a martial tactic, more than a martial art. It's a handy thing to know for escaping from attackers. You don't need to win in order to survive an attack, you just need to survive, and good Krav Maga instruction will equip you with the mindset, tactics, and a set of techniques to enable you to do so.

    But like most "reality" self defence systems, it's best taken with a good base skill-set (like boxing).

    A good krav maga school will have a fight class/grappling program.

    I have come to the conclusion that with Krav, you need to be very careful with who you are learning it from.
    In my opinion, look for an instructor who has a solid background in other arts such as kickboxing/boxing/muay thai, judo, bjj etc.
    unfortunatly it would seem that all the bad blood for krav is coming from the fact that there are a lot of places you can tain for 3 weeks with no prior MA experience and become a fully qualified instructor.
    Before you start paying to train somewhere, find out where they got their instructor qualification from and do some research into what experience was needed for them to obtain it.
    There seem to be a lot of bad techniques being taught by krav instructors, but after a while of training with one, you will probably get a feel for whether or not what you are learning is worth learning, or just downright dangerous.
    Also look for a class that pressure tests techniques and does some sparring.

    After taking up MMA, i would definitely suggest cross training with some form of kickboxing, as that will greatly improve your striking techniques.

    We have a Krav Maga by where I live, the instructor was a black belt in two other styles before incorporating Krav Maga.

    He has "trimmed the fat" out of the other styles, eliminated ineffective strikes, and synthesized the Krav Maga he teaches to incorporate the best of 15 years of instruction.

    Seems pretty legit, trains police, swat, etc.

    That's always a good sign.... if the cops in your town train there, and they are kicking azz on the bad guys then the style must be good!
