The techniques are just that: there are a finite number of ways to strike, twist, garrote, bludgeon, etc a human target. The way you implement them through tactics makes all the difference.

You also touched on something: Krav Maga covers similar techniques, just not as quickly.

This is because Krav Maga is based on the martial arts model: More students. longer.
To do this they need to keep you coming back as long as possible, period. They do this by creating more content, complicated technique, forms and other general nonsense to make you dependent on them. They use excessive belts and ranks to increase retention. If you’re interested, forget it: you will be paying through the nose to get that almighty black belt.

If you want to compete is sport, the right dojo is a great experience. IF you want to be a part of a social club, have at it. IF you just ant to know the nastiest sh!t in the world without an BS, you’ve come to the right place.

As for personality conflict: I could be a class A prick, it doesn’t matter, you get what you want when you want it. That’s the beauty of the age we live in.[/quote:ldupg8vv]

Thanks Damian. You hit the nail on the head. Yeah, I see how they wanted to keep us strung along at the Krav Maga school. I missed my level 2 test back in the summer when I lost my grandmother. It took about 2 months later before he would allow me to make-up the test. I wasn’t really that interested in testing at this point, except that it was the only way to access the advanced training, or something besides 60 minutes of non-stop punching.

I’m looking forward to becoming a SDTC instructor as well. Thanks again.
