Krav'maga is legit as fuck. I've practiced it for 2 years and a half (not in a continuous period of time though) and even though I was personally bad at it, the instructors were people you didn't want to mess with. The first one was an old man of 70 who could kick your ass anytime (he fought in the Algerian war as well, in a paramilitary extremist (terrorist) loyalist group, but was given a free pass for his crimes. I'm not bullshitting you, it happened to people in France after the war), the second one was just a normal but tall and buff guy and the third was an Eastern European (Serbian) massive fucker (shaven head, muscle mountain, maybe tattoos, I don't remember that).
The moves are very simple and designed to be as efficient as humanly possible, and what makes it awesome is that they were actually made to be applied in real-life fights and not to be practiced in a dojo. Everything's allowed, from biting to kicking someone in the balls to push your thumbs in the eyes of the mugger/opponent.
And this is just the civilian version, the commando version learnt by the FBI, the Israeli Army and the GIGN (French SWAT, kinda) is even more awesome, and they learn to kill as well.
Kamarinskaya: I believe it. Some of those Krav dudes are bad mofos.
ssk08: Thank you for your service. The best way to protect yourself in a situation like that is to draw everyone's attention to it. Most guys get shocked back into reality once they realize they have a whole bar staring at them, and if he does try anything, everyone around is gonna hold him back and make him look like an asshole. You mind if I ask what your MOS was?
Trzer: Sounds good man. Tear it up.
Grim Reaper: Fast kicks for sure. I didn't know about Gokor Chivichyan. Good call.
I have done Judo for a year and currently do Krav maga and am Level 1 yellow belt. I found Judo to be mostly useless. I even competed and won a few tournaments. Granted, we did not do no-gi (which I believe to be important). But it was embarrassing going into Krav never having even thrown a punch in my life and looking like a retard. Yet I'm green belt judo.
Krav Maga is the shit, I am very confident wherever I go at night. I've been taught how to get out of most gun defenses (even hostage), long gun defense, Knife, and blunt weapon defenses. Still learning how to strike effectively though (but I have the powerful aggressive part down, just not really good punch techniques)
Isn't knockdown Karate effective? I have heard good things about kenpo. also you forgot to include Wing Chun and other kung fu. I have heard Wing Chun is effective.
Nice article. I did competetive boxing for 3 years (around 15 amatuer fights, won half lost half). I know i can beat the average drunken guy easily, but the style is indeed limited. I want to mix it up with some wrestling and give MMA a shot.

I didn't think the "Get Hung" guide would have girls eyeing my bulge. It did.
I didn't think that your exercise and diet advice would have girls checking me out. It did.
I DEFINITELY didn't think that your hair-loss prevention would fix my hairline. Not in a billion years. It mother fucking did. You saved me a crazy amount of time, a ton of money, unnecessary pain, and destroyed my #1 source of anxiety. DESTROYED IT.
Kratom is next!
