Second, Krav is not an art, period. Show me where Krav has took moves from BJJ?




Arm Bar

This all depends on your definition of mixed martial arts really. I mean someone could argue JKD was a mixed martial art as it takes moves from various styles. But really is there such need to be so anal.
I think there is a USI problem in these forums, maybe thats something to do with martial arts, i do see a connection.

Clarity of thought is of the utmost importance on a forum. After all, we're not standing in front of each other with the ability to show what we mean.

FWIW, this is a commonly accepted definition of MMA:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mixed_martial_arts#cite_note-slate-0

What you think of Krav would be more accurately referred to as a "hybrid" art/style or a "combative". Most people would not accept Krav as MMA nowadays.

I believe an arm bar has been around before BJJ. Next!! And it ain't anal. You will not find krav ppl to call krav an art but a system.

I don't know and see how Krav Maga became ineffective against MMA. IMHO, Krav Maga is the most effective, practical, and efficient MA/self defense system there is to date. It's principles and techniques are very simple yet very effective and deadly. It doesn't employ very difficult maneuvers in defending one's self.

Krav Maga is reality based, not sports or studio type based of training, which makes it very practical especially in defending one's self on the streets and outside the ring and dojo.
