    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Legit Krav Maga school?

    http://www.kravmagaottawa.ca/

    Bullies, I've been asked by a friend up in Canuckistan about a Krav Maga school in his area. I know absolutely zip dot **** about KM, except that there are some very good and very bad schools and teachers out there. Does this guy look legit? Anyone have any firsthand knowledge about this school?

    Thanks in advance guys.

    Krav Maga in Ottawa

    I too had wondered if Krav maga ottawa was legit... they offer the first class for free so I went as I was looking for Krav in town and had found nothing but a webpage off of a karate school (like a ad-on to a karate school) seemed kind of shaddy so I kept looking. I found krav maga ottawa off of an other site (they did not have a site back then) I went in for the free class an since then have been training with them.

    It is part of the IKMF international Krav Maga federation founded by Krav maga founder. The main instructor is now the IKMF Director for Canada (highest ranked IKMF instructor in Canada).

    I attended a multiple attacker seminar last weekend March 20th 2010 with Avi Moyal, our instructors instructor... a direct student of Imi litchtenfeld the creator! It was incredible, about 50 people there. Loved it.

    I suggest you simply go and try a free class, it is commitment free, thats what I like about this guy, no contracts, no commitment and in the last year his school has been growing like wildfire from word of mouth and self defense seminars for women or with high ranking IKMF members.

    I say try it for the one free class and make your own mind up.

    We also have a few members that were with other federations before perhaps you can talk to them then.

    Just went to the website to watch the vids. I just can't seem to shake the feeling that Krav Maga justs looks like really ugly JKD. That is a whole other discussion though. But what I can't shake is the prices!!

    $100/month. For only 2 classes a week!! Thats $25 per class! And they train out of a YMCA. My former BJJ instructor charges $100/month, has his own dedicated facility, and has classes 7 days a week (regardless if he teaches them at all). Anyway this place is far overpriced given his lack of over head and the low classes per week. (for what he is offering it should be <$50/month)

    I would recommend your friend to a JKD school in ottawa. Probably cheaper

    Because Krav Maga is not at a stable level of bullshit, but at an increasing level. It started off as a legit system, but once it became popular every nutjob was all of a sudden a krav maga expert.

    Excluding the Phil Elmore, Ashida Kim, Damian Ross, etc stuff.
    That can be said about every system. Except for boxing, since it's been around fo' ever.
    So uhh, [negate premisse ->] Krav Maga is awesome.
