    Commando Krav Maga - Credibility of the style and its instructors.

    I've wanted to train in Krav Maga the instant I learned about it. Unfortunately, there were no schools in my area at all that taught it. Just today, I found out that there's a Commando Krav Maga gym in my city. I'm just a little skeptic though, because I remember reading that Commando Krav Maga was a scam.

    You guys know a lot more than I do; is it a scam?

    Here is a website of the style with "certified instructors":

    The two men, Jimmy Hall and Dr. Randy Moore teach in my hometown of Calgary (Alberta).

    This is their website:

    If this is all credible, I would love to get into training as soon as possible.

    EDIT: They also have a video on a local TV station:

    Integrity tea kwon do? Seriously?

    They look like a TKD school that started Krav program for some extra cache.

    "Escape from unexpected street-holds", "Violent strangles".

    Ugh, I wouldn't go near this place.

      The two gentlemen you mentioned are Level 2 instructors. To become a Level 2 instructor in Commando Krav Maga, you only have to attend a 3 or 5 day seminar:

      Yes! The first CKM Instructor course builds your foundation and covers the curriculum for Levels 1 and 2 out of the 8 Levels in the system.
      Of course this doesn't mean they don't have anything to teach, but perhaps check to see if there are any other instructors in the area with more experience, or perhaps look into another art altogether (considering that instruction 'certification' in Commando KM only requires taking an extended weekend seminar).

      Are you completely sold on Krav Maga?

        Thank you for the heads up!

        I'm not completely sold on it, although I favor it the most. Since there was no Krav Maga in my area, I trained in other martial arts. I was going to start training again (I have done some Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, for example). I want to start doing Muay Thai now. Commando Krav Maga just happened to enter my view during the same time I was already looking for schools to attend.

              The fact that it is a pure self-defense martial art made for "the streets" is what interests me the most. Secondly, I like how the attacks require minimum effort with maximum effect.

                  You haven't trained martial arts before have you? Those techniques take the same effort as BJJ, MMA, Muay Thai, Boxing, wrestling etc etc etc. Also, it is not "made for the streets." Read up more and realize that the Krav you will learn is admittedly watered down and is not the version that the Police and the IDF use.

                      I have taken jiu jitsu before and liked it as well. However I am aware that there is no 'best style', there is an 'ideal style' for each individual's interests. So although I like jiu jitsu a lot, Krav Maga is still what has interested me the most. Regardless, considering this school is the only Krav school in my area and doesn't even seem to be a good one, I'll be sticking with the Muay Thai school I looked forward to joining.

                        krav maga

                        Krav Maga is not a style it is a system. The tecniques are from all different styles but was perfected for the Iserali special forces. As for Commando Krav Maga, Moni, All of his claims of being in the special forces and training the special forces and meeting Imi the founder of krav maga are false, he was not a major, he was a seargant with not ties to special forces. He only met Imi the founder one time. He claimed to be the co founder of krav maga but its all bull. He is being sued at the moment for charging all of those poor fools to be certified krav maga instructors, around $2000 for three days. It takes at least 23 days to be certified instructor in krav maga with past training in it or a black belt in some other style of martial arts. And then only by an Isreali guy. Look for Krav Maga Global or Krav Maga internatinal or krav maga world and you can find some schools or courses coming up.

                          Hi,

                          I was wondering if you managed to find a KM school in Calgary? Did you check out Jimmy Hall's class? If yes, what were your impressions?

                          Thanks in advance,

                          Michael
