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:

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

One video includes some history and general mindset.
The second video is shorter & is a testimonial from a 15 year old, who tells his story that lead him to train and how training in Krav Maga has effected him, his confidence, and his self-esteem.

Thanks to Kristin Wilson Keppler, author of this piece, for doing such a great job presenting Krav Maga.
