You also learn knife defens and gun defence.

EDIT: might I add that my knowledge about this system is very limeted, so the info I gave you could me inacurate.
But its just my oppinion
yea thats what I heard.. Though my friend who is an Tang soo Do instructor is interested no win this art since I pointed him at it.. and thats what he discovered.. Just wanted to get an alternate view of it.. so great for self defense.. bad for sport seems to be the concensus

I personally train by 3 main fighting styles.

Wrestling
Muay Thai
Kenpo(Kempo) Jiu Jitsu

I use the Wrestling for basically ground controll and grappling.
I use Muay Thai for of course basic stand up and working in a clinch.
I use Kenpo Jiu Jitsu for ground and pound and submissions.

My strong point by far is wresling and ground and pound but my Muay Thai is comming alot pretty good as well.

What is it that is going to be on your mind when you're on your death bed? Will it be the tedious years of 9 to 5, or the memory of some great acheivement. Maybe a moment you stood in glory to the applause of millions.

Has anybody got any evidence of one of these esoteric styles in action?
I always hear about all the, one inch punches, and crazy manuevers, then it seems like whenever one of these guys steps into MMA, he gets dominated.
I'm looking for something similar to the old videos the gracies used to put out to show off their style.
YouTube - Royce Gracie vs a fool

One of the Quotes under the video says
"Hey Brother, a real kung fu guy would have busted the face of this brazilian clown in a minute .....the is that if the Kung Fu guy would do what he had to do in a real fight, there would be no chance for the BJJ guy to throw him to the ground.......BJJ it's not better than Kung fu or any other martial arts"

The whole "a real Kung Fu(or TKD, or JKD, or any other art)" seems like a big time cop out to me.

If i'm missing something please tell me.

* use the body's natural reflexes
* strike at any vulnerable point
* use any tool or object nearby

My understanding of Krav Maga is that it was developed by the Israeli Defence force as a practical/realistic means of defence and attack. They teach it mainly to law enforcement/military around the globe as a means of self defence when there arent any better options. There are a lot of gun/knife/other weapon defences as well as instinctive attacks and use of your environment to subdue/kill the enemy. There are places for civilians to learn though, I spend my summers in cleveland, ohio and there is a place i know of (havent checked it out too much yet) not to far that will teach anybody. From what i understand it would not be very applicable to mma because it was developed for real world situations where your goal is to either kill the person or get away from the person, though i imagine some of the instinct that it builds could be helpful in reacting to an opponents movements.

Yeah, it is more of a real world self defense system.
Be good for your girlfriend though
