    I learned it for a year and thought it was awesome! It integrates little bit of almost all martial arts based on how good of a fit they are for certain situations. I really miss it; it's too bad there's literally no krav maga class to be found here in Calgary.

    The sparring with plastic weapons and in a darkly lit room was incredibly fun. The instructors had a lot to say about their training for Krav Maga in Israel - something that I would look into once I finish school and settle down. It's such a practical form of martial art, it should be more available

    I've only seen it here and there on programs about martial arts. It seems very practically conceived and geared toward self-defense as opposed to cultural, fitness, sportive or self-cultivation (budo) aspects. What I saw centered on training and drilling for realistic self-defense scenarios that had been developed by the IDF based on past history which included being attacked by an armed opponent, multiple opponents, etc., with a mindset not so much for "winning" the fight, as surviving and being able to get away.

    I attended a training session and was very impressed with the instructors of Krav Maga and believe this style is very useful...... but but other martial arts with traditional and cultural aspects can be useful as well icon_biggrin.gif

    Yeah know what you mean mate alot of aspects of other martial arts are useful too. But have found this one easier to pick up, the holds, grips seems to work regardless of the strength, height etc of your opponent and targeting weak spots to strike on everyone such as the carotid artery is great if your in a 999 aka 911 situation.icon_smile.gif
