Uhmmm...this is Krav Maga...right? Not like it's...karate...or some kind koryu that puts a lot of value on lineage and teacher approval? And isn't the point that he was in a system where it was acknowledged that he was paying for a certificate to teach in that association?

I would totally agree with that from what my understanding of it is. To teach teach in that association . He's talking about opening a new school.

Oh, well. Good luck with it JasonM. I have made my opinion pretty clear on the topic. Ultimately the decision is your friends.

I think the point is, if you paid for it and you completed it, you should be entitled to it. It would be nice to be able to hang it on your wall to show your accomplishments. If KMWW doesn't want to license you than fine. You should still get your Certificate though. If it makes you feel better KMWW won't give my old instructor his phase A or his Phase B unless he signs a contract for $500.00 plus a Month.

Jm there is a lot more too it and I think your opinion is off cuz of that..

We were wanting to open our own school WITH the backing of KMWW. We even looked for a place far away from any other Krav schools. But because this instructors ego is bigger than his school he claimed the area we were looking at. Which is BS...

Harlan is rightk it is KM and I should not expect anything less. At least it would be honorable with a TMA.

oh and JM, this ain't an isolated incident as you should be able to tell from Dedicated's post.

We have done everything right to try and request a school under the KMWW umbrella, but one instrucgtor or that instructors opinion seems to dictate the whole organization. It is rather sad...

Any certification worth anything would probably come from a higher authority that a local affiliate school. If it is some first tier instructor level, I would just start over at another school and show that you know your stuff. Your abilities and knowledge should speak volumes better that a piece of paper.

I agree. However, it appears the "good ole boy" system exist in KMWW. The local instructor is buddies with the licensing guy at KMWW.

In any event, my friend is changing over to IKMA and we are going to do our thing under that umbrella. :-) We are tired of dealing with KMWW and their BS.
