Pure Krav Maga - Not Glamorous Marketing / RAJ

5.0 out of 5 stars This is Pure Krav Maga - not glamorous marketingDecember 11, 2011
This review is from: Pure Krav Maga - Self Defense Mastery (DVD)
Since its original inception by Immi; (a crafting of his formal training, his street fighting defending European ghettos against nazi gangs in the lead up to World War Two and his intensive study of the Fairbairn Sykes unarmed combat training techniques he was taught in the British Army) Krav Maga has been sanitised, adapted, ''evolved" and appropriated by other forms or styles of self-defence.

Until now. Make no mistake; this IS Krav Maga. Boaz Aviram IS the real deal - he has no need to invent or "stretch" his background, knowledge and experience - he's been there, done that, won his 100 fight Kumite and then taught Krav Maga in the way it was intended.

This isn't a glossy over-produced drama-based "sell" of a system; this is a straightforward easy to follow and brilliantly explained step-by-step instructional set of DVDs which take you right through the Krav Maga system. 

Boaz calls this Pure Krav Maga because that is was it is - it is the original, pure Krav Maga; the contact combat system that is so effective that it is so often either imitated or appropriated; the words being taken and applied to other contact combat systems simply to leverage the power of the Krav Maga reputation. 

This is an essential companion piece to Mr.Aviram's book, and should - as other reviewers have noted - be watched from start to finish at least once. Boaz Aviram doesn't waste words so it's important to listen to everything that is said.

For those starting, already learning, experts in, or just interested in Krav Maga, then this is the only DVD set you need, just as the book is, really, the only book about Krav Maga that you should spend your money on.
