What is the rationale of getting certified in Krav Maga so quickly.../Boaz Aviram

Aside from needs to make the system available for self defense for the public finding the best available missionaries and copy cat operators there is a logic to it.  In fact if you compare it to all the other martial arts, Pure Krav Maga does teach what they do in a way but a lot quicker. How is that so? 

Well there is the environment - intensive weeks of training vs. weekly hourly sessions
The training hours are about the same but the intensity allows one warm up hour per day which is 15 percent of the curriculum vs. 30 percent with weekly hour. 

Other fitness of bait and switch techniques can increase the total non self defense material up to 50 percent and at time ironically it can be said that it is all fitness scheme. After all one error could cost your life. 

Bait and switch why? Some customers come to training as an escape and they want to develop and get complements for their ego more than they want to learn self defense. Some are only looking for the military boot camp style fitness because they feel lazy. But the major fault is a perpetuation of instructors that due to relaxed environment never got to hone their own self defense skills.

On a final note, any training time that is not necessary completely necessary for warm up and is not dealing in programming your mind and body how to reach your opponent's pressure points before he reaches yours, is irrelevant time lost!
