Plantman, I'm curious what differences you've found?
I've been training with guys under what I believe is the LA system... I would be very curious to know what is so "vanilla" about it in comparison to the "original" form. Your tone implies that the LA version is some sort of friendly "NERF" version of Krav, which doesn't really gel with my experience so far.
I'll add that just because somebody is teaching the "original" system does not mean their system is better (The combatives and groundwork in Krav are by no means unique to the system). I would much rather keep the discussion objective than to bring up the concept of lineage.
I'm not looking to start an argument, but I am interested in specific differences across "brands," and you implied the differences were significant.
