    Kind of. Jeet Kun Do was kind of like that stuff. That coupled with Kali, and it was a pretty close quarter art.

    We worked mostly with knives though.

    :hsugh:

    The course/concept is designed to teach you to fight for your life, more specifically from zero to five feet.. It has nothing to do with invincibility.

    a lot of times a hit to the face or neck will give you the opportunity to disarm the other, or arm yourself.

    Oh.

    Well thanks for saving me some money. I guess I don't need to take the class now.

    i wasn't saying the class was useless. i'm sure the instructors talk a little about what i just said and i'm aware that helmets are for safety, only.

    but it's something to keep in mind

    I took Krav Maga, I'm supposed to be picking it up again soon. If you don't know what Krav Maga is, look it up. Those were horrible disarms. It looks like anything goes in the videos, and they didn't use a lot of options that were available to them.

    I know what krav maga is. ECQC is less disarm and more "get a weapon and kill that fucker before he kills you" from what i can tell. :o

    I'm not sure of the rules at the school but those were horrid disarms. Groin, throats and a massive amount of triangles (they could have maintained control of them weapon and used that arm to choke the opponent) were available to them. If a gun is ever pulled on my at a close distance, I would immediately look to escape, and if not, go for a disarm.

    you don't live in texas, do you?

    seriously though, can you recommend krav maga, I've thought about learning some (and then practicing regularly, of course) for a "just in case" scenario where i'm in a pickle, and find myself unarmed...

    couldn't hurt, though i would probably gain more from a more hands-on approach...

    Most certainly. Books are good for preparing your mindset, while hands on allow you to learn the actual techniques.

    I'm moving to texas if I get into UT law school. I highly recommend Krav Maga. I trained with Krav Maga Worldwide Head Instructor Sam Sade, former Mr. Israel. I also know the Head Weapons Instructor out in LA. The training is a lot of fun and practical. It is fight for your life or die.

    . It is all about the technique. Krav is a series of explosions of energy. You go from a defensive to offensive position. We trained with our eyes closed until we were attacked.
