    what exactly do you do? Is it like a set group of techniques or what?

    Krav maga from what I've seen is a lot of self defense type drills. i.e. defending yourself from a rape choke, or knife defense. I personally think that it has become mcdojofied because of the lack of realistic training methods.

    krav maga is what the isreali military teaches its soldiers.

    whoever said no knees was a fucking fag, i can honestly say that we train that shit nearly every class.

    a lot of what we do is NOT set defense techniques. while we do cover shit for chokes and whatnot, a lot of what we do is just practicing striking and groundwork. :dunno:

    the classes that i go to are NOT heavily based on static, pre-set defenses/drills.

    my background: i (unfortunately) studied tae-kwon-do for about 5 years. studied aikido for 1. krav maga so far for about 4 months. closest thing to being street functional = krav. (but i'd love to compliment it with some kickboxing and bjj) i can't speak for the schools in your area, but at least the one down here isn't completely useless :dunno:

    I too was a victim of teh taekwondo a long time ago. I really don't have enough exposure to krav maga to give an educated opinion about it, but from what I did see (grappling someone who has training in it) I felt that his technique was a bit weak. But I guess it does depend on how hard your school trains.

    actually, i agree that grappling in krav is not its strong point. thus my views on wanting to augment my training with some bjj.

    yep, you can only benefit from cross training.

    i think it's a decent all around basis for further training. :dunno: i don't think a person who just trained in krav would ever be competitive...

    if you do ever run into one of "us" :mamoru: you shouldn't have much to worry about, unless the guy trains hardcore / cross trains. :hs:

    never seen any KM that impressed me but that elusive 'REAL KRAV MAGA' could certainly be out there. never fought a KM'er.

    i think the KM has, in many areas, been "mcdojofied" as you guys have said. ultimately, i think you'll only be impressed by someone who does it and actually trains outside of "class", as opposed to going to class and calling it a day.
