I have been teaching Krav Maga for 6 years. There are distinctly separate self defense classes and fitness (kickboxing) classes. Krav Maga is a street fighting system, designed for real self defense - we are not into katas, discipline, or anything else that does not directly inprove ones safety and fitness. Despite the prior post, nowhere in the system is there any "ninjitsu", and Krav Maga is probably the best deal in Austin. With over 1,500 members in Austin, our reputation is stellar, amongst all but our competitors - who can't compete with us.

Being a modern fighting system, it is not uncommon for peopple with traditional martial arts backgrounds to put it down. No - we do not practice 2,000 year old moves designed to fight men on horseback, and we won't waste time teaching you to count in Korean. If that is what you are looking for, then you will not like Krav Maga.

On the other hand, if you want to learn real fighting skills and get into the best shape of your life while doing it, then Krav Maga is something you should try. And you dont have to take my word for it.

Listen to the Instructors within every branch of the US military, and the FBI, Secret Service, Austin Police Department, Travis County Sherrif's department, and over 600 other professional law enforcement agenices and military untis who have vetted the system against other martial arts before deciding it is the best, most easily learned and retained sytem to train their men and women who stand in harms way every day.

I have studied many styles of martial arts over a 30 years period including Kung FU, Aikijutsu, Kenjustu, Iaido, & Ninjutsu. I love checking out new arts and I was very interested in the Hype about Krav Maga since I know that Ninjutsu was involved in the development of the art. As far as sweating my butt off it was awesome! BUT my serious problem with this combat form is that it is nothing more than a cardio boxing class; Bag drills and cardio training. I can go to any gym for a cardio class. I was also seriously unhappy to see that it wasn't so much about martial style as it was about $$$$. Advancement was based on how much you could pay, not on martial ability. People were being advanced that I felt were accidents waiting to happen. Also when my hands were injured by one of these "advanced" students because of bad form on their part I was yelled at for doing exactly as I was told to do and then the instructor didn't want to cover the medical bill with his insurance. I have since had problems with my hands when going back to Kung Fu. What ever martial art you choose - avoid this one.

Pros: great if all you want is to sweat

Cons: poor quality instruction, and advancement based on $$$ not skill

I was very impressed and exhausted after my first session at krav maga.

The instructors are excellent and take the time to explain to newcomers.

The area is very small though and there isn't a lot of work room. I was a little hesitant because this class was mostly well built men. When it came time to get a partner I had to work with one of the female trainers because there wasn't enough women. It would be great if there was more of a beginner or women's only class.

PROS: Best workout I've ever had.
CONS: Crowded and beginners easily overwhelmed
