    First of all, there are plenty of "get your teaching cert in a few days" orgs in the RBSD community. I don't agree with them, but its ignorant to say that everything besides krav takes longer to get certified. Second, systema is a system of breathing and movement; krav maga is a system of straightforward fighting techniques and strategies. Thus it has a narrower scope so it can be taught in a shorter period of time. Krav was designed this way from the beginning to be easily understood and absorbed, whereas in my brief systema stint, even as a decade-long martial artist I couldn't always figure out why we were approaching things a certain way in systema.

    AFAIK IKMF is a recognized organization founded by several KravMaga experts, whereas CKM is a business founded by 1 guy (Moni Aizik) who turned out to be a fraud (Google him to find tons of posts about him).

    I would recommend going with a "reputable" organization such as IKMF, IKMA or KMF - even if it is more $ than CKM.

    Like I said, the IKMF is better.

    I would guess this happens because of New Years resolutions, to get in shape. They then try and find some martial art and stumble in here. Also they might make a cream for this rash you speak of.
