When one thinks of martial arts movies, the immediate image that comes to mind is probably Bruce Lee performing a flying kick and yelling, “Keeyah!” into the camera. Badass? Yes. Practical? Not much. That’s why the more realistic action movies use krav maga in its storytelling and fight choreography.
One conversation was with a Krav Maga expert, the other with a much-loved student of ours. The first was with my friend, Tamir, at a grading recently. We were discussing the importance of recognizing that all Krav Maga techniques and tactics hold equal levels of importance, regardless of where they appear in the syllabus. The second was a conversation was with a long-standing student of ours who once asked us why we test our students? The first question leads directly onto the next.
