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.

Re: IS KRAV MAGA A GOOD SELF DEFENSE SYSTEM?
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?

Krav Maga is good, Haganah is better. Google Mike Lee Kanarek. Great instructor. There may be a location near you with an instructor certified by Mike Lee. Good luck.

Are you seriously sourcing Malcolm in the Middle and The Simpsons as your proof that Krav Maga is a joke? Can you come up with anything better than that???

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..
