CNN features Krav Maga

We always like Krav Maga being covered by media – we need more people to understand it, so more can defend themselves and go home safe.

CNN did a good job telling the origin story and explaining the core elements in a way that can appeal to people who have never heard of it before.

Teaching Proper Punching

One of the great elements of Krav Maga is that it takes in good ideas from wherever they are discovered, and lets go the bad.

Mark Kaufman wrote a piece on the importance of Proper Punching technique & how he studies and incorporates lessons learned outside Krav Maga to be a better Krav Maga Instructor:

Many of the arts can teach us lessons we may have forgotten and breaking down the movement is students need sometimes, Those of us experienced take movement for granted, we do things unconsciously and although IKI Krav Maga continues to move forward (Yea!), we must still pay attention to the basics.

What is a creative way you have taught a lesson to someone else?

They have a great line about the foundation of  Krav Maga:

Krav Maga is not a traditional or spiritual martial arts style like Kung Fu, Karate, Judo or Taekwondo. It’s a tactical street fight, …

All in all Krav Maga is promoted as an effective system and a good thing that it is spreading to that area, though some have reservations due to it being founded in Israel.
