    I moved to Israel about a month ago, and decided to try out Krav Maga here, in Netanya (as far as I know, it is the place for a civilian to learn Krav Maga).

    I dabbled in it about a year (or more?) ago at a little McDojo in the Bay Area, but I didn't learn too much.

    Today was my first day, in the beginner class. Since I Never Back Down (Optamix, I should have taken your thread to heart) I picked out the biggest guy in the class to spar with. He opened with a roundhouse kick to the head. I almost held my own for a little bit, and then, while ducking with my mouth open, he straight up Leonidas kicks me in the face. I took it like a man, but now I can't close my mouth all the way.

    After that, we had a few rounds of ground work. I threw the big guy around like a red headed step child, and then switched partners, rinsed, and repeated. They were really good sports about it, too. Since they were beginners, I'll let the fact that none of them could wrestle for shit slide, but I hope the level of ground game picks up in the more advanced classes.

    No Jack Bauer shit yet, but I'll keep my fingers crossed.

    The only thing that still hurts is my knee and my ankle.


    I can open my mouth all the way with some slight discomfort, but its not bad.

    I will kill him Tuesday.

    I got him with a good superman punch, I Irving him with it next time.

    For fun dude. Before work I walk 800 feet to the beach and surf. No rain here, almost ever. Everything is new and exciting because I'm in Israel, and to top it off I didn't even have to learn the language because I already know it.

    I'm looking at a year (maybe two) of vacation, except for I have to work 9 hours a day.

    Depends where you go. Where I am, yes. Other places, not as much.

    Women here curse like sailors, and everybody walks around like they have a 12 inch gold plated dick. I've had 15 year old girls try to stare me down and shoulder check me.

    Israel is good living. I lived for about 4 years in Safed. A lot of my family is still there. It doesn't rain often, but sometimes it rains like a motherfucker. The Mediterranean is fucking :bowdown:

    yeah, i missed out last year and got too old. My old roommate and his brother both did it and loved it. His brother ended up moving out there and worked on one of the youth farms, cant remember the hebrew term, but he loved it.
