here is the link:

America's Best Chatsworth Karate - Krav Maga

I am looking at different MAs and was wondering about Krav because I am
serious about self-defense. I am questioning if the other art I'm thinking of starting is the right choice, so I moved on to look at others while I do my research like Krav.

I don't know anything about them, so I can't comment on that.

I wanted to respond to your "serious about self-defense" statement.

First, Krav Maga, as I understand it, is a very effective style. However, I would not say it's the only one for those "serious about self-defense."

Second, it's become very fashionable. That always attracts fraudulent instruction. So just beware.

Krav can be a very good system for self defense but as Bill said above it's an art that is popular at the moment. I have heard that in some cases all one needs to do is attend a seminar and they can be certified to train krav. From looking at the staff bio's I kind of get that feeling. You get a lenght in time they have been training TSD and then a quick certified krav instructor. I could be wrong and as I have no dealings with this school this is simply my opinion based on what I see.

I don't know about the martial arts but reading the blurb I think you may also get a whole load of religion with your training. some people want that so it depends on what you feel about it.
I must admit I've not heard of Krav Maga Little Dragons before.

As Bill said we can't say, I was looking at the comments and from them deduced it may have a religious flavour about it which may or may not be to your liking, that's up to you, your preference. As for the martial arts I think you might know by now we'd suggest going to the place and having a look, see how it fits with you. Might be perfect for you, might not, have a look and see. Let us know how you got on. :)

what do you mean religion?


Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

If you read what it says on your link you can see what I mean. There's nothing wrong with it at all just something you might want to be aware of that when people mention a deity in their publicity they may have more of a religious slant than you wish or perhaps not enough of one, entirely up to you.

In case it hasn't been said, see other posts about the major orgs (e.g., KMWW, IKM something, and Alliance). I train at Alliance HQ in Culver City and love it. Here's a list of their member/affiliate schools worldwide. Still new to LA so don't know what's near Chatsworth. Affiliates

Good distinction!
But FYI, there's nothing essentially religious or political about it. Since there's no "code" to chant at each class, etc. that takes care of that part. I haven't heard religion or politics mentioned once in my year of KM thus far.
