I just started last week. Enjoying it so far.
BDR you kick ass.
how is it? They started teaching it at my gym, (a fitness gym, not a martial arts gym) but all the cheezy fliers, and free KM tshirt when you join makes me very iffy.
I took it for something like 4-6 months (don't remmeber) before it got too expensive. Very good stuff. I think after about a year most people move on to more technical stuff like boxing or MT.
i would be scared to fight anyoen who can squat my car like ray can
No disrespect intended, but around this area it's considered a lower class of martial arts, and frowned upon by many.
A good friend of mine took the class, and said that the training and techniques that they teach you are very standard textbook mumbo jumbo, and at times, it's even laughable. He said that he quit the same day after he read the class agenda for the following week was "Lethal Cat Claw Fury", in which they teach you how to inflict maximim damage upon your opponent through scratching and biting . Fucking looneys.
Anyways, your better off taking a good kickboxing class, or even Tae Kwon Do for that matter, both are far superior.
can't you just once post a decent, non-trolling response in here?
the scary thing is, they might all be non-trolling posts
Krav is good shit, if you can find a place worth a shit.
This country has ruined Krav just like it ruined TKD. (Well TKD was always a joke, we just made it worse)
I agree with a Teh Aweseome post....
Sad to say it but I agree with him too
You are crazy. Krav Maga is fucking great. Its helped me so much.
Helped you do what?
Go try it on a MT guy and come tell us how it helped you lose teeth.
Sure, if he gets in the ring with the MT guy.
In the street, the bar, the party etc, even the trained MT guy gets mad, postures, shoves, etc. For the best proof of this just watch Coleman vs Shogun. Trained fighters screaming at the tops of their lungs with their hands at their waist, posturing. The Krav Maga guy is taught to avoid the whole posturing phase and either avoid the fight altogether or hit his opponent before the fight actually starts. Its not meant to be a ring sport. 90% of its effectivness is based on aggression and the mentality of going from 0 to 100% in an instant.
In my opinion Krav Maga is the best initiation to fighting you can get. It instills the perfect mentality and gets you in shape fast. Afterwards you can fine tune your technique in boxing or MT.
there are three stages of fighting
get good at atleast 2 if your going to be a wanker and get into street fights. Conversly if a fight finds you, just hope the fight stays in your strongest area.
teh awesome has sold out to the masses.
So far, I really like and enjoy it. It's teaching me things that I don't know and I like the fact that there are no gi's, belts or kata's. It's just straight up how to hurt people, real life street fighting. Like others have said though, I figure I will do this for a year(that's how long the contract is for) and then move on to something else. It will provide me with the basics and get my bodyweight down and conditioning up so it will serve its purpose. My wife is taking the classes with me, so it gives us something to do together. Plus, it's close to my house.
Ya'll might think this is funny. This is what corresponded between and my partner in class last night.
Him: So, how much can you lift?
Me: On what?
Him: I guess Bench
Me: Do you know what a bench shirt is?
Me: Ok then, I've done 500 pounds raw
Him: OMG!! I've only seen that type of stuff on the internet!!
aren't you from the dallas area?
if you want to try something new after krav maga
one of the top muay thai schools around
