I'm unfamiliar with those names, but Krav Maga while dirty is an effective self defense system. It's one of the few systems I know that espouses eye pokes and groin shots intentionally to ward off attackers.

There's always a tendency to pick up poor habits, but given your situation you should research other vids. Try out El Bresko's vids he posted here for another member on Muay Thai kicks while he was in Thailand training.

Then invest in a bag to practice. I'm a beginner/intermediate myself so I probably relate a little bit better rather than someone who's already competing on the amateur or even pro circuit. It's amazing how far advance they are, but you don't realize it til you're in there training with them. Subtle techniques we're learning is something they've already mastered. Foot work is one of them. Right now you're stationary. Once you get a bag you can move around a bit, then when you spar you'll realize how important it is.

My recommendations.

1.) For footwork watch the hour long vid on Anderson Silva.
THEN you'll see why he knocks people out especially against Leben and Chael Pt 2. Him and Machida have the best footwork along with Frankie Edgar.

2.) Muay Thai kicks. Duke Roufous is not bad, but I'd go straight to the Thailand footage. You'll notice subtle differences in westernized kickboxing vs traditional muay thai.

3.) boxing - any well known trainer. You can check out Jason Parillo.

Finally get a few friends together to PRACTICE LIGHTLY. Don't be one of those heroes and tries silly things. It's always the amateurs that hurt themselves.

PS: Hit the gym to bulk up in tandem with your new martial arts training.

Good luck man!
