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?

that good feeling after Krav Maga

One of my girlfriends is really into Krav Maga, and she took me as a guest to a class.  Oh my goodness, it was a blast!  So much energy, so much fun, so much punching and kicking!  It’s now a full day later and I’m feeling the burn all over the place.  Random back muscles that I hardly knew existed are aching.  Don’t mistake this for a bad thing though, I love feeling sore because it means I busted out of my workout comfort zone.
