Japan / Re: Karate 空手

Hi Leon ... welcome to the forum, thanks for joining.

I myself have not heard of it yet but sounds like a great system to learn, I know the Israeli military systems are very effective self defense systems. Please let us know how it goes once you start training.

For other people who also have not heard of this system yet I post the description:
This is a more modern kind of self-defence. Where did itcome from and what is in the very core of it? Krav Maga is a full-contact fighting system and is considered to be one of the best martial arts oriented toself-defence. This self-defence system was developed and actively used in the Israel Defense Forces. Therefore, the country from where this type of martial arts takes place is Israel. Nowadays Krav Maga is also actively practised. One of the best masters, who developed his own method of training,is Mikhail Peleg. He is a military instructor who will effectively teach you how to apply this martial art in practice.

The big problem with the ninja arts is that most have been lost due to their secrecy. After modern weapons and laws took over and the ninja were outlawed their art also disappeared. There are some schools especially in Japan that try to restore these arts, some have the luck of still having some original texts.

It looks great and effective, thank you for sharing. Unfortunately many styles of martial arts today are practiced by a practitioner alone which makes them difficult to apply in real situations. Many, even black belts have been defeated by simple street fighters because they were not able to apply their skills in real situation. It's is great to see that your school teaches two man forms and the application of techniques to real life situations.

If you have more videos or even information please feel free to share it with us.
