Anybody ever taken Krav Maga classes? If so what did you think about it? Trying to find some classes local to me but not having any luck.
I have been training in Martial Arts since age 6. I'm now 35. I hold a 5th Dan grade in TKD. Around 2nd Dan grade our instructor encouraged us to learn other martial arts on top of our TKD training. I did some Krav Maga. KM cuts to the chase. Of all the MA I've studied it seemed the most applicable to the real world. Without all the tradition stuff other martial arts teach, before you learn something useful. If you want to jump strait to learning how to defend yourself. KM is a good martial art to take. IMHO
Depending upon the style of Aikido you took, you'll find the Krav Maga techniques similar. The techniques are basically Daito Ryu Aikijujitsu but with less flourish and a great practical side. If you enjoyed Aikido, you'll probably enjoy Krav Maga as well.
