    Does the Kapap system teach kicks? If so, what kind of kicks. I realize Krav Maga World Wide teaches kicks. I am asking about a seperate system tought by the Kapap Academy.

    First, it's kinda a generic term. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KAPAP

    Second, I'm not especially convinced that it Kapap counts as a "Western Martial Art" though some elements of it are, such as Lang's stick system and boxing. The Judo, JuJutsu, and Karate, less so. Further, being an Israeli martial art (well, modern fusion art) makes it closer, geographically speaking, to Tahtib.

    Peace favor your sword,

    1) It is an Arabic/Egyptian stick fighting art. Many now practice it as a dance.
    2) Google is your friend.
