Krav Maga is great for "everyday" street use. Forget about those Oriental systems with their rigid stances and disciplined striking. The real life situations do not work that way. This is why Krav Maga was developed. It's great for exploding into somebody with counter moves, which is what you are looking for. Oriental martial arts have proven to be song and dance.
When has a kung fu expert ever won at MMA? The answer is never! Jujitsu has it's place, but you don't want to be on the ground in a street fight.

Re: IS KRAV MAGA A GOOD SELF DEFENSE SYSTEM?
Krav Maga is a fucking joke, just like so many other supposed "martial arts" out there today. NOTHING compares to oriental martial arts. A properly trained TKD or even Karate expert will destroy any krav maga "expert". Same goes for all the dummies who fight in the UFC. All those fuckers do is roll around on the floor rubbing their dicks together. If any of them had to go up against someone with the skills of a Chuck Norris they'd last about 10 seconds. And yes, I know, there have been traditional martial artists who have fought and lost in the UFC, but how good were they really at those arts? My guess is not very.

If you wanna learn hand to hand combat, go with traditional oriental styles. They've been developed over hundreds of years unlike shit like krav maga which has probably been around for, what 20 years? Just because a bunch of characters on tv shows and movies kick ass with krav maga doesn't make it great. I can name two examples of krav maga bullshit on tv.

1. Malcolm in the Middle - Cynthia, Malcolm's gf in around the second/third season, puts people into holds with what she says is krav maga. Apparently all little Jewish girls are trained in this style.

2. The Simpsons - The Simpsons go to Israel, and Bart meets a girl he likes, who of course uses here mastery of krav maga on him.

Krav Maga is just propaganda for Israel, nothing more.

BTW, does everyone else know that the girl who played Cynthia on Malcolm in the Middle is now in her early 20's and is dating JEFF GOLDBLUM? That's right, she's been with him since about ten seconds after she became legal age. You gotta wonder what one of the hottest actresses out there right now is doing with a old fart like Goldblum. He's gotta be, what, 60? Older?

Re: IS KRAV MAGA A GOOD SELF DEFENSE SYSTEM?
I've taken kickboxing, bjj, and Krav. With good reason the Israeli Defence Force regulars and special forces are taught Krav. Krav is a very basic self defence system that is easy to learn quickly. It's raw and is effective against common attacks. In my limited experience with street attacks I personaly wouldn't trust it strictly empty-handed against, say a trained mixed martial artist, even on the street - though you could still do some serious damage in such a situation - , but for real life situations involving the avarage thug it has served me well in the past. If you're looking for survival skills in a dangerous world, I would say Krav is what you're looking for. Besides, most well trained martial artist aren't looking for trouble on the street anyway. Krav really is an excellent overall SELF DEFENCE (not profossional fighting) system. Hope this helps...

Krav maga is a very effective for street defenses..yes they also teach to kill.. But you do not have to kill with a one on one and no weapons you will go to jail. The self defense training system by SDC co founder Damian Ross has an excellent self defense for anything you will face on the street from awareness of your surroundings to distance from an attacker. Remember they have to get close to you to be able to attack..

Re: IS KRAV MAGA A GOOD SELF DEFENSE SYSTEM?
Good points all around, Gary. I have now been training in krav for several months straight. It teaches situational awareness (not an mma focus), stick, knife, and gun defence/disarms (not an mma focus), multiple attacker defence (not an mma focus), fighting in real surroundings like parking lots, stairwells, elevators... (not an mma focus). I love both krav and my former kickboxing/bjj. Bottom line is stick a krav guy in an octagon he will either be disqualified for a multitude of illegal moves or try to fight mma style and probably fail due to lack of training in mma-specific figting; stick a gun in an mma guy's face, he probably won't know what the heck to do. Mma is great for one on one controlled fighting - and I still love it! Krav is superior for self "defence situations" because that is what they train you for!

Re: IS KRAV MAGA A GOOD SELF DEFENSE SYSTEM?
hey guys,

I want to learn a good self defense defense for protection in an ever increasingly dangerous world.

I'll probably get a concealed carry permit at some point, but I like I want to learn a hand to hand combat system because that is something of which you can never be disarmed. You can carry it with you wherever you go.

I have looked at various systems that exist and I feel Krav Maga is one of the best. I realize there are many passionate opinions out there on the best fighting system, and I will concede that there are many which offer good techniques, but I feel overall Krav Maga is the best.

Recently, a Krav Maga studio opened in my city and I was thinking about enrolling.

But first I wanted to get others opinions on what they think.

Best self defense against one person in my opinion is brazillian jiu jitsu.

Best self defense against multiple attackers is taking off and sprinting fast as you can.

Re: IS KRAV MAGA A GOOD SELF DEFENSE SYSTEM?
Depends on the instructor and whether or not it is authentic Krav Maga. Personally, Judo (or Sambo), Catch, Muay Thai, BJJ, and boxing mixed with RBSD World War II Combatives or Dog Brothers Kali would be my choices.

I've trained with some good Krav Maga people, some not so good.

Work on the basics. Kickboxing will teach you how to strike properly with both kicks and punches, but every fight ends up on the ground at some point so it's also good to have some jujitsu.

From what I know about Krav Maga, it down't teach very much ground technique, mostly just effective counteract and offensive skills.

I am not kidding. Krav Maga is a swindle. The losers never get to tell their side of the story because they are dead.

Save your money and learn proper martial arts.

A Krav Maga master would not last 10 seconds with a proper martial arts master.

Watch this video. It is rather slow paced, but it is very telling of the power of a properly trained martial artist.



 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1069606


what utter bullshit.
I've done KM for over 5 years and yes most of the time you're taught to take out the attacker but taking out the attacker does not equal death of the attacker.

It's worth noting that prior to KM I did both Ju-Jitsu and Karate and although they have some good moves neither come anywhere near the day to day practicality of Krav Maga.

actually this is very true.
There's isn't that much ground work in KM principally because you're taught to avoid as far as possible going to ground.

you're right that kick boxing is great for getting up and running, but past that, KM all the way.

No martial art is any good except for staying limber. There is no way you can leave your house and be able to defend yourself against any and all types of attacks. Plus, when you get into some path that has a 'master' or 'sensei', you should run for the door. No one, even someone who has 'mastered a martial art' needs that title unless they seek it.

Power mongers all of them.
