    1. YouTube videos are an excellent source, but with a caveat: Martial Arts (especially Krav Maga) are violent. It is a world of difference mimicking what you see on the tube and what actually happens in real life.

      My son has been participating in a local Krav Maga training and I asked him what he thought of it and if his “goals” were being met. His answer surprised me: “No. I joined Krav Maga so I would learn how to fight. I still don’t know how to fight. I only learned how to destroy my opponent.” (loosely paraphrased).
      Upon further questioning, he revealed that his original goal was naive, because conflict avoidance was best, but if it couldn’t be helped, then absolutely destroying your opponent was the cleanest way out. I have participated with both my sons practicing and there is no question that it is violent. I don’t think you can get a feel for that without actually having a partner. They both use YouTube, but then work it out on each other.

  1. I’m a Level 3 Krav Maga Instructor and HJL is spot on. I’m also a KyoSaNim (Korea-Certified Instructor) in Tang Soo Do. The point about traditional martial arts being to “flashy” for real life is 100% correct. After years of training and running my own school, I realized that the pre-planned attack scenarios that all martial arts use were too generic. I studied Krav and found my answer. Any book by Darren Levine is good, but David Kahn also has a three book set that is great, along with a video series. I teach based upon Levine’s material.
