Just thought I'd start an interesting discussion about what people really are enjoying about Krav Maga?

Personally I like the no BS combative attitude. None of the high flying fancy kicks or stuff like that. Just right down to ground and pound style of thinking. To me that is very effective method of self defense. The workouts are good too!

My answer has a slightly different twist to it.

What I like and dislike about Krav is the same thing: It pushes me to learn things I'm not very good at...I'm waaay out of my comfort zone.

Good answer! And you're absolutely right. Every time I go to Krav I think about how difficult some of the conditioning is, but then I think again that is one of the reasons I go! To get into better condition.

Come on everyone, I see a bunch of views, but no replys. Put it out there on the table for everyone to see!

I like Krav because the system is composed of simple effective combatives. I also like being pushed beyond what I thought was my limit.

For me it is the confidence krav has given me.

I have never been particularly strong or a good fighter, and since surviving a rather brutal assault 13 years ago have been rather timid.

After 18 months of krav I can now walk with my head held high knowing that if it did happen again I would not go down without a good fight.

Besides some of the things already mentioned, none of this bs with the pressure to get colorful belts, do tournaments etc. Just good, no-nonsense stuff.

I agree with the comments already mentioned on why we love krav. However, i just started Krav and learned that KM does do "colorful belts". It seems that we just don't wear them and it is refered to as level 1,2, etc... I trained in a traditional MA for about 10 years and didn't feel pressure when it was time to get another belt or be promoted. It was a great goal to achieve. Sorry if this swayed off topic a bit. Don't get me wrong, I love my traditional MA and love KM. They both have pros and cons, I think it is about taking something from both and making that material yours and having it work for you.

I like that the techniques rely on major muscle movement versus fine motor control. With adreneline flowing through your system, that can make a huge difference particularly if you haven't had years of training behind you.
