Hi Everyone, I am very new to the boards here, and I am also new to the world of martial arts (other than dabbling a bit in beginner Karate). I just spent the last couple of days taking one-on-one Kapap classes with an instructor and I really enjoy them, although it is quite expensive. I have been looking into an alternative which was taking Krav Maga classes at a local gym. The classes are longer (2hrs per class versus 1hr per private session with my Kapap instructor) and they seem to be taught by very credible instructors. The classes are also much cheaper ($20 per class versus $40 per private lesson). From a value for money perspective it would seem to me that the classes are a better bet. However, I have a job which requires me to often work long hours, and I'm concerned that I just won't have the time to make it to class, and therefore, I'd prefer of having the flexibility of arranging a private lesson when it suits me. However, I've been told by my Kapap instructor (who also has taken many years of Krav Maga) that Kapap is a bit better to learn because it is slightly more developed than Krav Maga (he mentioned that Krav Maga is basically a simplified version of Kapap). I'd like to hear your advice on the following: 1. Is it really worthwhile taking private one-on-one training (ie. do you tend to learn more), or is generally better to go for the class route? 2. Is it better (from the perspective of a beginner) to learn (i) Krav Maga or (ii) Kapap and is there actually a difference between the two? Thanks!
