    I have served in the military for 16 years and law enforcement for eight. I have a background in martial arts and was a combatives instructor for two years. I personally witnessed standard training methods fail one of my buddies. He was taught to simply create distance and use firearms tactics. These methods didn’t provide an adequate response in the heat of an edged weapon attack. Krav Maga is by far the best self-defense system due to its simplistic and practical nature. No other self-defense training is so effective and so simple at the same time. I have many times used elements from Krav Maga to fill gaps in the combatives curriculums I have had to instruct. When I first sought out Krav Maga training I found that there were many local places that seem to just teach ground and pound in there studio and call it Krav Maga. After researching the internet, I found that these local studios were far removed from the actual system itself. After seeking out the backstory on the system I found David’s books and DVDs. Imi Lichtenfeld developed Krav Maga back in the 40s and passed the baton to Grandmaster Haim Gidon. Grandmaster Gidon is currently the highest ranking member of the IKMA. David Kahn was trained by Grandmaster Gidon. The curriculum taught in these books is straight from the source and untainted by pop culture. The great thing about these books and DVDs is that, with five books and four volumes of DVDs, there is way more than enough material to become an effective Kravist. With the right level of motivation and attention to detail you can be ready for any situation. I would recommend at least purchasing a gorilla pad, punching bag or finding a buddy to train with to make things easier. With that said, even without any equipment the techniques remain simple and effective. Your brain will retain what you practice by way of shadow boxing and visualization. The price of self-defense can be outrageous, and you rarely know what you’ve bought until you sign a contract. At $15 to $25 dollars a book you’re not exactly throwing away money and you’ll be totally satisfied. The best thing about it is you can train when you have time. You don’t have to rush to get to class, or, even worse, sign a contract with some dojo you never have time to make it to. I don’t make promises often, but, I promise if you buy the first book in the series you’ll be stunned by the common sense approach to this system. Safe for me to say, before you know it you’ll be buying everything David has to offer.

    if you are new to krav maga,you need this book. david kahn along with the ikma have laid out the fundamentals of krav maga. david is an expert and wealth of information. i have met him personally.
    krav maga is a serious defense and fighting art form the land where the people deal with real terrorism on a daily basis. people have tried to kill the jews for 1000yr. this art was developed in the 60yr time frame from that kind mind set towards them. this is a real fighting art. this book is a good beginning and primer.
    David Kahn is the real deal. trained in israel and received his cert. in israel. this is krav maga

    I am very impressed with this book. It talks about the physical and mental aspects of self defense and gives adequate literature along with pictures describing upper and lower body strikes and blocks to defend against an aggressor. It also gives a workout routine and drill sessions to hone your skills and make this system something that a beginner can quickly become confident in their own self defense. I’d suggest purchasing this book, along with David Kahn’s DVD set “Mastering Krav Maga Volume 1”. They both work well together to show a beginner how to defend against someone trying to put the hurt on you, and discuss how not only to defend yourself, but to defuse the situation before it escalates into a confrontation. With todays world, you have to not only worry about someone attacking you, but also suing you if you use “unnecessary force” to defend yourself. Both the book, and the DvD’s help with discerning what types of strikes you should employ, and what you could do different to avoid the situation altogether. No matter gender, size, or strength, buy this system and start using it. It’ll give you a confidence in yourself, and if the time comes, will prepare you for defending your own life.
