In kind of the same subject, how come no one from Krav maga do any combative/self defense videos like Tony Blauer does in the video section? Does he have some kind of a exclusive affiliation with Crossfit?

Just wondering since i know a lot of Crossfit Affiliates are also Krav maga centers.


Chris,

I'm sure you'll be doing some of the Phase training here in Sherman Oaks so be sure to ask for me when you come out.


Becca,

Kick Marcus in the balls for me when you see him next!
Sure will James! I will def look you up when I am out there.

We have an instructor out there now, his name is Michael Glenn.

The videos are a nice idea, I am actually suprised more blended affiliates dont do them.

Re: 5 Finger Shoes and Shin Guards for Krav

If you're using those rev shin/instep guards why not stick/sew a female velcro strap over the top of the shoe, where the laces would be on a x-trainer? seems easier than putting a strap on the instep guard.

Re: 5 Finger Shoes and Shin Guards for Krav

A few reasons:
1. because of the open face design of the sprints.

2. The mesh design of the KSO's Would possibly not hold the seams.

3. These are also my daily wear shoes, and, honestly, I dont want to deface them for the sake of training.

Nice meeting you today, James! And the only way I'd kick Marcus (anywhere, much less THERE) is if I were fully confident I could outrun him, 'cause there's not way I'm gonna kick him and stand in front of him! lol!

Re: 5 Finger Shoes and Shin Guards for Krav

James...Ill be seeing you around sherman oaks. I was goign hardcore for a while and then had a freak groin injury. I'm craving the contact again. What classes are you teaching now? I know the schedule has changed a lot lately and its never up to date on the website.

Re: 5 Finger Shoes and Shin Guards for Krav

Update!

My 5 fingers are starting to show signs of wear, both styles.

I think Krav and BJJ might be a little too much for them.

I am ordering some Disciplines to try with krav, and Ill just use VFF for CrossFit and Everyday Wear.

Re: 5 Finger Shoes and Shin Guards for Krav

I am with Becca's statement regarding wear what you wear in the street. We have KM and I want people to train how they will perform (within reason) SO if you walk around town in 5 fingers, then by all means train in them.
