The Best!!! / by PB

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best!!!February 24, 2012
This review is from: Pure Krav Maga - Self Defense Mastery (DVD)
After watching the first hour long disc in the set, I knew that this was the "real deal."

First a bit about Krav Maga and Boaz. The Krav Maga system of fighting was developed by Imi Lichtenfield in the 1930's. Lichtenfield would become the first IDF Krav Maga Master Instructor. 

After Lichtenfield, the position was held by Eli Avikzar. After Avikzar came Boaz. Needless to say, Boaz learned the "real" Krav Maga from the people who created it. A claim that almost no one else in the world can make.

The videos themselves have excellent definition and sound quality. Sure, the videos feel bit home made, but hey, this isn't Hollywood movie with an unlimited budget. Nonetheless, the production of the DVD's are excellent.

The instruction in the video is second to none. Boaz thoroughly explains every movement step by step, it's effectiveness, and in which scenarios to use it in. For example, Boaz will explain why one movement is better than another in a certain situation. 

Boaz spends a good amount of time instructing each technique, not too long and not too short. Boaz patiently explains each technique and corrects mistakes. Boaz teaches everything from strikes, grapples, to weapons defense.

If what you are looking for is a flashy fighting system to impress people or to learn a martial art as a sport, this set is not for you. However, if you are looking to learn how to defend yourself in any situation, this is for you. 

During my stint in the Israeli Defense Force, I received sub par training in Krav Maga. In the 7 1/2 hours I spent watching the DVD's I learned much more than the days I spent learning in the IDF.
