hey, this question is mainly for Miss Parker and those of you with experience with Krav Maga…
a buddy of mine is interested in going somewhere for a seminar for this, but i really have no idea where to suggest for him. i’ve heard that the instruction for KM varies wildly, and i personally wonder how much he can learn in 2-5 day block of training. i’ve trained with this guy before, and he has a little training in BJJ (that i’ve taught him) and in LEO defensive tatics, so i wouldn’t say that he has much of a base, although he is in great shape.
anyway, thanks for any future input![/quote]
You mean he’s looking to find a seminar somewhere to take that’s a sort of an “intro to Krav”? I’m not aware of anyplace that does those kinds of seminars of that length, really. Is he looking for instruction in Iowa or is he willing to travel? The lower level techniques in Krav are quite simple to learn, but like any of this stuff they are perishable skills, so he needs someone to practice with. What is his goal: self defense, putting another tool in his toolbox, or maybe just exploring styles?
If you let me know this stuff I can help you find a reputable Krav Maga place he can go to. If he has general questions regarding what Krav is about, or about particular techniques, he’s welcome to PM me any time or just jump on this thread & I’ll answer his particular questions.[/quote]
well, i guess i’m not sure what he’s looking for…i think he’s looking for a training class, maybe something like an intro. however, the more i think about this and read through, the more unrealistic his expectations are, unless he is able to train afterwards…
i’ll talk to him and tell him to stop being dumb.
