thats funny..i didnt know they train KRAV MAGA in england

its actually not really a sport here..KRAV MAGA was invented in the army and its aim is to deal with terrorist - how to neutralize a armed attacker and stuff like that..not exaclly mma.

i guess u can learn stuff from there if u want..im not sure how legal it is to use all of it in the octagon doe

Krav Maga is a pretty tough full contact sport system invented by the Israeli army. Any full contact sport/MA is authorized in the Octagon I believe, as long as you don't break the rules.

Did Kickboxing/Muay Thai for 3 years back when I was in University. Did about 3 months of BJJ, but had to stop due to work commitments.

Now, I have a baby on the way, so I'll have no time for anything.

Now that my knee is healed up I plan on starting some MMA training at a local gym once school gets out.

I also used to wrestle.

Does not having a gym because you can't afford, but watching youtube/other instructional videos and tapping people out... count?
