Anyone hear of it? Know a trainer? I am very interested in the art and am hoping to find someone in the Pacific N.W. to learn more through, so any advise or direction would be much appreciated.

O.K. I am first appologetic for not saying Hello first and do so now.
A warm and sincere greeting to all on the site.
Second I have some minimal knowledge of the art , it is an Israeli forces staple used in their covert and otherwise everyday ops.
the main difference that I can see......is they strike in the same motion as their defense,...thereby leaving innumerable second strike options,....both hands being free at the time of rotation.

Comments...?

My sister trained in Texas with one of their instructors. It was a tough workout for all involved, but she learned a lot.

I went to a few lessons of Krav Maga once just to check it out while I was in south-east europe. The class was alright, but the fight style wasn't really what I liked. I mean it's practical... for staying alive if someone is really trying to kill you.

yea... a bit more than stick it to them, it's really gruesome and harsh.

It originated as a self defense for the Israeli troops and they moulded it for staying alive in hand to hand combat. It is also geared towards disarming opponents with weapons, handling several attacker and the quickest way to put someone out of action.
