This review is from: Black Belt Krav Maga: Elite Techniques of the World's Most Powerful Combat System (Paperback)
Absolute fantasy. the firearm disarms are absolute crap. i tried to give this book a fair chance but look, the greenest civvie with a handgun will take the head off a martial artist every time. there is even a section on removing a hot grenade from someones hand and not only surviving the encounter but also vapourising the assailant while you yourself remaining unscathed. there's an absolutely insane section on carjackings where the driver ends up in posession of a handgun previously wielded by a jacker located outside of the car. this book will end lives and not the thief / assailant but rather the misguided practitioner. to finish with three concise words: madness, misleading, fantasy.

Krav Maga is currently the choice of self defense training for over 500 military and law enforcement agencies across the world some of which include the FBI, SWAT, NYPD and of course the IDF amongst many, many others.

fair enough. doesn't mean that a silly book will make you into a killing machine. not complaining about krav maga as such... just making the point that the only way that you're going to take a gun or knife off someone is if they allow you to do so in some stupid course. people get complacent when they think that weapons will magically jump into their hands and that your opponent will not really resist that much. the stuff being taught to the IDF etc... is not the same stupid syllabus being taught in community centres around the world by greedy individuals looking to turn a buck off mr lichtenfields little system. by the way, most of the organisations that you mentioned above use a very mixed syllabus. not just KRAV MAGIC. oh sorry. i meant krav maga.
in closing, what exactly does the list of orgs currently using this "system" have to do with the fact that i thought that the book was outlandish and silly?
