Krav Maga Tour and Train June 2010
Alex from Ohio and Stone from Alabama had never met before but here in Israel they would become Krav Maga training partners, an excellent team, outstanding students.
Our first day began with Krav Maga Basics; grabs, chokes, the fundamentals of kicking and defending against unarmed attackers.
Our team than trained with our local Krav kids and found them to be tough and aggressive.

Alex from the USA, Moshe from Israel, an Israeli reserve Navy guy, Samir a Beduin Arab, Gal from the Israeli Navy and Stone from Alabama, USA. Enjoying coffee and discussion together. So what is all this talk about us not getting along? Good people can get along, just stop the attacks on us!
