It's the fighting art that the IDF and Israeli police use, and it's being taught to some PDs here in the states now, apparently. A friend of mine is taking it, and told me to take a look at it. I went out and took the intro class and I've never sweat so much from an hour of doing anything before. I went back the second night and took another beginners class, then the fight class right after that. Last night was a weapons class and then another beginners class. It's pretty cool because you don't spar for points, you put on protective gear and go at it at about 75% force. The system is based on natural reactions to attacks, and turning those reactions into brutal responses. There are no high kicks like in tae kwon do, and no katas. A lot of low kicks, none above the groin, from kicking distance, a [b]LOT[/b] of punches (I can barely lift my arms after three consecutive days of classes) and elbows and knees. If you're interested, take a look at [url]www.kravmaga.com[/url]. There's a locator function on the website that will tell you where the nearest classes are to you. tired Jarhead out.

Thank you for posting, Jarhead. I'm always interested in new styles. Coversix P.S. I just checked the locator. Tell your instructor that all your friends in WA are pissed since they don't have a single school within two states distance. {grumble}

This post woke me up, and I found a potential studio near the house. Always wanted to try this style but the commute to L.A. was too long. Thanks for the info.
