The question still comes up; can I offer certification in Military Krav Maga. And the answer is always the same, there is no such thing. It is "Fake News".
Allow me to explain.
There is Krav Maga and we apply it to various situations. The situations one may face are unlimited!
You can be in a car, in a bar, near or far.
You can here or there, or anywhere.
You can be in a plane, in a train, in the rain, in a baseball game.
You can be alone or with friends, you can be at work or at play.
You can face one attacker or a gang, armed or unarmed, you can be wearing a suit or high heels.
You can be the pilot, the driver, the passenger, at a gas station, at the minimarket, at the super market.
The possibilities for what you might face are unlimited but the techniques you can learn and remember are very limited.
Thus we take a different approach. We learn concepts and simple techniques that can be applied and adjusted to meet our needs in a multitude of situations.
Yes circumstances do vary. If you are in the military there are certain rules that must be adhered to. Facing an attacker in a bar is different from facing a terrorist, you cannot respond the same way. What you can do is use the same concepts but apply them based on the given situation. That is what we are all about.
Yes, circumstances dictate different responses, that is why we use the concept of AAPC
The AAPC helps us know how to respond, to stay or to run, to control or to destroy the opponent.
Imagine if we had to gain certification in
and so on and so forth,
Now of course each situation must be addressed and we apply our Krav Maga techniques and concepts to each situation. Our man in Australia, Pat, takes our Krav Maga and applies it night after night to the situations he faces while manning the door and being in charge of security at the pubs. In another country the rules may be different, in another bar the situation might be different. The possibilities are unlimited.
There are organizations that will offer specific certifications in each of these areas, why? The answer is simple, it is very profitable. We prefer to give you the tools and help you apply them.
We have trained airline pilots and they have recreated for us the conditions of the cockpit. We have worked with professional drivers. Now take for example drivers; how many cars are the same? cars and trucks come in all sizes. If each specific area required a specific Krav Maga certification than we would have a separate course for cars and trucks of size and shape. Does that make sense?
We believe we teach you the concepts and then help you apply them to your car, or your house, or whatever you may face. Perhaps we should just call our style Honest Krav Maga.
It is like life itself, your parents and your teachers will never be able to know what you will face in the years ahead. All they can do is teach you, guide you, so that when you face those situations you will have the wisdom to respond correctly.
Teach your students well, guide them, so that when you are no longer here they will know how to handle themselves.
