Anything else is just a watered down verson and defeats the purpose of calling it Krav Maga. Because without the Krav Maga specifics (few of them as there are) its just basic self-defense techniques you can learn anywhere.
you learn the same suff in civilian training just minus the kill shot and replace it with a crippling shot.
