JJK,
Israeli MA. Focused continual strikes to end the engagement...Strikes taken from many martial arts. What I have seen had some grappling, but was not the main emphasis. Does have weapon disarms.

Currently many places offering this art. Whether all are legitimate is another question.

Krav Maga
(krav-ma•ga) pronounced (kräv) (megä´) n. [Hebrew.] for “contact combat”, is the official self-defense and hand-to-hand combat system of Israel. Krav Maga is a very modern and practical style of self-defense that is the only style worldwide known as an art of self-defense and not as a martial art. Krav Maga isn't about being a tough guy, it's not about learning how to fight in a ring, it's about going home alive no matter what the situation. Krav Maga is a survival system dealing with personal safety issues in the context of defending against both armed and unarmed attackers. Krav Maga integrates instinct based self-defense tactics, with a strong curriculum that trains aggressiveness, fighting spirit, situational awareness, and verbal de-escalation of conflict. Its anti-terrorist roots make it aggressive by design, with only one objective, to eliminate the threat in the fastest way possible. It is considered a highly refined, street fighting system, designed to be utilized against street attacks, muggings, and sexual assaults. Krav Maga was developed for use in the street. When an individual is attacked in the street there is no way to know how many opponents or weapons you might encounter, therefore Krav Maga training is based on a system without rules. This Israeli system emerged in an environment where extreme violence was common has been continually refined and developed in light of actual modern combat and self-defense experiences. Krav Maga has received international recognition for its unique approach in bringing self defense to civilian, military, and law enforcement alike. The Krav Maga symbol consists of the Hebrew letters K and M surrounded by an open circle because the system is open to improvement by adding techniques, exercises, and training methods.

As my instructor said, "You're not here to learn how to fight, you're here to learn how to beat the crap out of people."

Neither one sounds like self defense to me.

My Instructors teach why it is important to "finish" a fight and the appropriate level of force. We are also taught to be aware of surroundings to avoid a fight and that the "Nike Defense" (running away) is the best option.
However, if you decide that the only option is to fight for your life then you must make a conscious decision to overwhelm the enemy (attacker, mugger rapist) in constant combat motion until the threat is diminished and you are out of harms way. After all, you don't want to get into a sparring match with a rapist or hit him so lightly that he can resume his attack.
