This is about the 5th martial art I’ve tried and I do Krav for about the same reasons all of you do. To stay in shape, try and keep challenging myself, and of course trying a martial art with more of a real application in case the sitaution requires it. To this point, the other martial arts I’ve tried have been more competetive or said it was more practical and reall was not. I also wanted to try a martial art from another part of the world beside from any of the Asian countries. I have never tried a martial art that required this intense of physical attention. The movements are short and to the point which make it all the sweeter to do. since Krav requires partners for training, my group and I feel like we are really learning and benefiting from the new energy demand.
