Do not try this at home, kiddies...


The biggest hindrance I face when teaching is the defense of falling. 

If you do not know how to fall properly, most of the techniques in this video will take the attacker out of the fight.  The ground hurts.  When you are thrown into the ground hard, it breaks you up or steals your wind.

Falling is an art unto itself - defensive.  If a good fighter has you and you resist when you should go with his energy - you will break.

Yes, there is a bigger message there.  I'll let you work it out.

  1. I know that you stress that Krav will get you up to speed the fastest, however the closest Krav studio to my house is what I term geographically undesirable, There is a Systema group that is closer. What are your thoughts on this style?

    1. Hi Bill,

      Systema is better than nothing, but how quickly it will be street-useful depends mostly on the instructors at your local studio, and how many hours each week you can devote.

      A good Systema practitioner can be a handful - I'd say expect at least a year before you'd want to try it in a bar fight. ;)
