By Dimitris Kontekakis - See all my reviews
This review is from: Pure Krav Maga - Self Defense Mastery (DVD)
An amazing Experience !(Reading the Book and watching the Training Dvds of Mr. Aviram) By Dimitris Kontekakis, Lawyer, Greece.
As others logically have done I have to introduce myself at first in order to let the readers evaluate my evaluation! Also please tolerate my English, am doing my best not being able to keep my opinion only for me although I'm not a native speaker!
I have been dealing with several different fighting sports and Martial Arts and especially with the realistic part, the applied part for self defense for more than 30 years.
I have also received a very relevant military training of unorthodox, guerrilla war as a reserve officer (now res. Lieutenant).
In addition I had participated in many seminars, of Tae Kwon Do, Judo, Kung Fu, Krav Maga, beyond my regular training in Kickboxing or so called Muay Thai, and Wing Chun Kung Fu.
The material and the whole philosophy that Mr. Aviram expresses through his book "Krav Maga - Use of the Human Body as a Weapon; Philosophy and Application of Hand to Hand Fighting Training System," and in his training DVDs "Pure Krav Maga - Self Defense Mastery" ARE THE VERY ESSENCE OF SELF DEFENSE, the core and the main thing for anyone who wants to be practical and to understand quickly the basic and the advanced techniques of Krav Maga - Self Defense system.
Yes there are other systems, other ways to gain knowledge in Krav Maga. Many Martial Arts Instructors and Fighting Sports Coaches try to prepare their students somehow to defend themselves.
But whether for either for the beginner students or Masters and Coaches (only those that are open minded!) of any Martial Art system or Fighting Sport, Mr. Aviram's, Pure Krav Maga s principles and his methods of teaching, explaining, exhibiting in his book and DVDs ARE SUPERB, unique and worthy to exist in anyone's arsenal of weapons against any situation.
He himself is calm and self-confident. His explanations are done without exaggerating, in a simplified way and to the extent of the depth required to satisfy someone's curious mind and necessary calm of all his questions that will boost his confidence.
Through Mr. Aviram's way of passing the knowledge, the very Self Defense applicable Pure Krav Maga techniques, are getting absorbed fast in everyone's mind, and through sufficient practice this knowledge could soon become a serious shield against attacks of any kind.
Questions and doubts are answered in a more than satisfactory way for someone who wants to know. From what I am reading that was the starting point of Big Imrich Lichtenfeld, nick named "Immi", fast, practical and hard teaching without the "marketing sauce" of our days ... Many congratulations Boaz Aviram !!!
