So, while surfing a Krav Maga forum today, I came across a post from someone, asking about schools in the Miami area. People commented, and someone mentioned Rick Blitstein. They said that he was a great teacher and part of the IKMA. Another member commented, and said that while Haim Gidon is the real deal, Rick and Haims org. basically took their Krav Maga in a different direction, by adding in alot of BJJ/ground work. Now, I'll be the first to say that I feel that having a ground game is very important for everyone, especially today, considering that MMA is very popular. I have seen and enjoyed many IKMA youtube clips, as well as reading a few of David Kahns books, so I know that they do in fact incorporate the ground work. It was a concern of this one person, that this violated the basic prinicples of Krav Maga, because you dont want to go to the ground. Of course, I've also said that intentionally going to the ground may not be the best idea, but again, if you have no other option and end up there, you better know what to do. I'll close with this. I'm not affiliated with any Krav Maga org....yet anyways but that will most likely be changing in the near future, but IMHO, I think that the IKMA seems to be constantly updating their art, ensuring that they're as complete as possible. So, I'm looking forward to hearing from the Krav Maga members on the forum. What are your thoughts on this?
