What do y'all think of this book? I bought it used for like 7.50 and then checked amazon.com, and some reviews were spectacular, some were bad, of course i've come to ignore many reviews from amazon but still, what do all of you have to say about it?

I'm one of the guys who posted a favorable review. My name is Enrique and I credit the book for seeking instruction here in Miami under David's mentor and teacher, Rick Blitstein, one of only 3 instructors allowed to teach here in the states after 1981.

I think it is a great intro into Krav, correctly telling you that Krav is easy to learn and fucntional.

The best thing about the book is that he tells you to seek out a qualified instructor, as opposed to other MA books that tell you you will master the art by reading or watching about it.

Oh hi, what acoincidence, welcom to FA.com
I unfortunetly cant learn from a qualified instructor so i have to learn what i can from books, like these, I have kahn's book and the one by Eyal and Imi on weapon defenses. I do formal training in taekwondo and some BJJ though, so I guess it somewhat makes up for lack of a qualified instructor.
So how long have you been training in it anyway?

No matter how good a book may be, and I liked his book a lot, it cannot replace or duplicate the interaction between 2 people in a room, trying out different techniques/scenarios on one another.

The book is a good comprehensive overview of Krav. My favorite quote from that book: "If you can breathe, you can fight. Never accept defeat." I agree with Plantman, if you are really interested in Krav go find a qualified instructor. I think you will be pleasantly surprised how well Krav complements your current martial training. I was so impressed that I stopped taking other styles. Good luck!

I just picked this book up yesterday. Its not bad. Some good defenses but others seem slightly different then the way I was trained. The choke from the fron for example looks alot more like haganah in the book than traditional krav.

How is it different exactly, from traditional krav, and how were you taught?

Its a good KM book... covers the unarmed stuff real good.

The material in the book is the yellow belt and some of orange belt under IKMA.

I trained with Dave in Israel...he is really skilled!

I know I may sound like the oddball here. Especially having studied both KM and Haganah, But I was disappointed with the book now that I have finished it. I think the illustrations were poorly done, would have been better if there were photos or if not at least be more clear and detailed I also got the impression the book was hastily written. There was at least in my opinion not very good and details explanations of each technique and also I didn't think it was very "in depth" and would leave a lot of people wanting.

Just adding my 2 cents. I am fortunate enough to have become a student of David Kahn's, having been led to him after purchasing his book. I personally found the book to be a very easy read and straightforward. Although there are diagrams in place of pictures I found the diagrams very easy to follow. I had read the book and then contacted David, who was more than happy, and prompt, to help me in any way he could. I could recommend the book to anyone interested in Krav Maga or just starting out as I think they would find it very beneficial.

This book was my intro to KM and I think it is a wonderful tool. I knew very little about this art and David's enthusiasm was evident in every page. He made me want to learn more about the art and I must say I love it. A good introduction to the art.

I only want to make some balance. I understand somebody pais 7.50 for the book, well I must say I love krav-maga very much and I personally only buy books written by israelis masters.
I bought one now for US$75 ( in this site www.kravmagaexams.pro.br/thebook ), and I must say that is the best book I found till now.
I do not understand how can there be a martial book with no photos, in the book of Yaron Lichtenstein which I bought now there are literaly thousands of pictures...
