Does the krav Maga curiculum of techniques and tactics very from instructor to instructor and school to school, or is it like many other arts where there is a set standard of techniques and methods which are the same pretty much verywhere? It seems to me like it is somewhat up to the instructor. Also, is Krav still being improved and updated?

Krav Maga in La is always trying new stuff, just to see what can be enhanced as far as self-defense goes. As for the teaching across the country, it should be the same. The way an Instructor teaches will vary, but what an Instructor teaches should not. In order to be a Krav Maga Instructor you need to pass a three day test on the material and also a teaching test. Once you have passed your test you are given a training manual. All the manuals are the same, so Krav should be the same where ever you are. As for Instructors they MUST be certified in order to teach Krav Maga. As for updating the system I think I've heard some talk about adding more ground work, which would be nice. As for the other stuff, "If it's not broke, don't fix it".

Is there a way to verify if an instructor is certified?

They should have a certificate from Krav Maga World Wide Headquarters in LA. It will show their certification and their level they are supposed to teach. There are three different levels. (Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3). Most Instructors teach beyond what they are supposed to teach, which I feel is fine if they are teaching proper technique and/or self defense. But just remember that they are only certified by LA to teach what they have been certified on. As for checking to see if they are certified, look for their certificate on the wall or ask to see it. I imagine you can contact LA and ask them to check their records also.

I disagree with that post completly, but it would take me to long to explain why, and I don't like to argue the political side of anything. There is a difference between your opinion and the true facts.

Lets not get into who's Krav program is the "real" one or who is more or less qualified. All Krav organizations will be respected equaly in this forum.

it would be interesting to see your proof and how you know this? How long have you been doing krav? are you licensed? etc..

I don't know what was posted and/or deleted but I can tell you that I have seen the LA groups curriculum and it differs from the IKMA greatly.

Their orange and some blue belt stuff are things we have done in Yellow.

The LA groups version of Krav is a more civilianm or vanilla form of Krav as opposed to the IKMA and even the IKMF for that matter.

I'm not just talking out of my ass here. The United States Patent and Trademark office has all sorts of info on this subject where certain people from LA have verified this to be true.

If anyone has a copy of their Krav curriculum and can post it, I'd be happy to compare.
