I was wondering if you think taking Haganah would benefit someone who doesn't have any prior martial arts training. The guy who is instructing has great credentials and is certified in the different Haganah areas. Would Haganah give someone the ability to defend himself well and kick ass? Thanks.

I still think Haganah was a resistance movement from days of yore in israel, not a fighting style. But if it's anything like "pure" Krav Maga, it will indeed be beneficial to a novice MAist with self defense on the top of the "why" list.
Yeah, quotes are so

haganah means "defence" in hebrew. one of the first defense organizations that were put together in israel (before their was a state) was called "hagana". one of the split offs from krav called itself haganah - it is being used simply as a name, for the positive assosiation. it would be like an american style of defence calling itself "minuteman"
