Hi everyone

just signed up on this website look forward to meeting everyone and hopefully learning something. Just wondering what everyones opinions are on mixing Judo and Krav? I havent started either (going to check out both schools this week)

also can Judo be a good art for self defence? Is the self defence application in judo really just a matter of what your school is like?

It is generally accepted here that cross-training is not a bad idea. KM and Judo are both good styles, but it really depends on the instructor.

Hi, I've been training KM for a while and mixed it with BJJ, for what I know, since Krav Maga don't have too many ground fight techniques is always good to have other options and what I know is that Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is the best for self defense in ground fighting. I don't want to star a debate about which MA is the best, I'm telling you what works for me, the best advice I can give is that you do a little research, visit some schools and gyms and start training what you think works better for you. Good luck

casmor: I would prfer bjj personaly because I've had some exposure to it from MMA but I cant find any clubs that teach BJJ on its own where I am.
