Those dont seem to be the "rat hole musty gym" type places the guy I quoted was talking about. Thats seems like the best type of place to learn it, so how can I find those types of places?

Give me a State, and City, and I will try and help.

You will have to go check the dojo's out in person to see if they meet your standards.

You are not going to find an official Krav Maga rate hole training center. KM as it used by that name has to be licensed. I think there may be some rate hole ones but not many, and they may go by other names.

Whats Krav maga, never heard of it, whats it like, whats it concentrate on, where did it come from? thanks in advanced




One more complete reply from a "dojo's" web-site ..


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.

"Good things can continue to flow into the system and flawed exercises can flow out."
-- Imi Lichtenfeld, the Grand Master of Krav Maga

Krav Maga is not a traditional martial art. It was developed in a hostile environment in which combatants could not devote many hours to hand to hand combat training. Therefore, the Krav Maga system was created to bring students to a high level of proficiency in a relatively short period of time. There are no forms (katas) or rules or set combinations as reactions to attacks. Instead, Krav Maga training focuses on teaching simple self-defense techniques which are specifically catered to reality based attack situations.

The art of Krav Maga is much more of a survival system dealing with personal safety issues. It is considered to be a modern, highly refined, street fighting system, designed to be used against armed and unarmed attackers. Krav Maga addresses a wide variety of aggressive acts which include punches, kicks, chokes, bearhugs, headlocks, grabs, as well as defenses against multiple attackers and assailants armed with a firearm, edged weapon, or blunt object.

Krav Maga training stresses the ability to react when surprised. Techniques and training methods emphasize the ability to function from a poor state of readiness, and to move from a passive to aggressive state immediately in order to fight back and survive. Training methods teach students to react effectively under stress and to move efficiently from a position of disadvantage to a position of advantage.

In addition to self-defense, Krav Maga teaches hand to hand combat. This is a more advanced and sophisticated phase, and shows how to neutralize an opponent quickly and effectively. It embodies elements related to the actual performance of the fight including tactics, feints, powerful combinations of different attacks, the psychological dimensions of the fight, and learning how to use the environment to your advantage.

Krav Maga includes specialized training methods to not only challenge students physically, but to also instill a special mental discipline meant to strengthen the spirit and to develop the ability to deal with violent confrontations under intense stress. Classes will also incorporate the self-defense techniques that they teach to law enforcement personnel.

Because of the Krav Maga's combat-orientation, there are no competitions or tournaments. Like other arts, Krav Maga issues colored belts to mark higher levels of expertise.

If you look up David Kahn, he teaches in NJ and NYC.

FYI, he recently wrote a pretty popular book on the subject.

I train with the guy that trained hi, Yippeee!

To throw my 2 cents in on the question of whether KM has a place in the U.S. system of Martial Arts, I think it does. There were a few things overlooked in the string. This will be somewhat of a long post, my apologies in advance.

First: Iím not a fan of calling KM a self defense system. Its system of combat created by the IDF to enable those solders to be extremely effective in hand to hand situations. I believe itís called a self defense system because no person, group, nation or military really looks at Hand to Hand as an effective combat form anymore, only a fall-back as well as for marketing reasons.

What I think is overlooked in this discussion is that:
1) It was developed for a Military Force.
2) Hand to Hand in a military conflict has to be brutal and quick because of the possibility of having multiple opponents.
3) All Israeli citizens, Male and Female, are required to serve a 2 or 3 (canít remember exactly) year tour of duty in the IDF after high school.

The main thing that you have to remember is this; the key factor of how much force is used in a conflict come down to the judgment of the fighter. Someone practicing Aikido or BJJ could put someone into a simple arm lock to restrain someone or use the lock to break the arm. A Boxer could just hit someone in the face or could break a jaw, nose, or swell an eye shut. In my opinion when someone decides to train in a fighting art they become a Warrior. Following that path has many responsibilities and obligations. Avoid a fight if at all possible. If itís unavoidable only use force necessary to incapacitate your opponent, that level of force has to be judged by the person in the engagement . A Warrior is responsible for policing his own actions, acting appropriate to a situation, and keeping a clear head in stressful situations. Thatís what sets us apart from people that donít study Martial Arts, not the ability to fight. A KM practitioner, while delivering the fast paced strikes theyíve been trained for, should be able to do so with a clear head and the ability to stop when the opponent has been subdued appropriate to the situation, not attack someone with the wild abandon of a rabid bear mauling someone.

I donít mean to come of as ďPreachyĒ, ďHigh HandedĒ, or on a Soap Box. But it seems that some had been condemning this training, like it was going to create people that would go into a frenzy and kill while fighting. This is only my opinion, I hope some of you will consider it, and I hope I didnít offend anyone.
