Krav Maga IS MMA

The only difference between Krav Maga and traditional cage MMA is that MMA has rules. Add rules to Krav Maga, and it becomes exactly like MMA. For the past few days, I've been debunking people who have been disagreeing with my points in this thread And I would like to address some of the responses with this post:

Krav Maga is NOT a specific fighting system. Krav Maga incorporates a mix of martial arts (boxing, aikido, wrestling, kickboxing, judo, jiu jitsu, etc..) just like MMA. One of the most common misconceptions people seemed to have in my previous post is that Krav Maga and MMA are very different. This is false. A properly trained kravist, will fight exactly like any other MMA fighter in a ring.

Krav Maga = MMA. It's just that Krav Maga is like street MMA. But there is much more to Krav Maga than just dirty fighting.

Krav Maga CAN BE MMA.

The guys at Fit2Fight train Krav with MMA training methods and techniques and add on the non-sport relevant stuff like multiple attackers, scenario work, soft skills, and asymmetrical sparring.

They are good. However the majority of Krav is fucking nonsense. It's people doing compliant drills, complicated weapon disarms that will get you shot in the face, and believing that groin kicks and eye gouges will give them the edge over people who can actually fight.

Krav has ABYSMAL quality control.

No it's not. The weapons disarms taught in Krav Maga are highly effective. There is much more to Krav Maga than dirty fighting. Groin kicks and eye gouges would be highly effective against anyone, no matter how skilled.

No they are not. Go to a dog brothers gathering and try to take a STICK away from one of those guys, much less an actual knife. You'll get your head bashed in.

Groin kicks and Eye Gouges would be highly effective against anyone, no matter how skilled.

Only if you can deliver them effectively, and with the vast majority of Krav training, you can't.

Sorry but you haven't proven any of your points.

Haven't proven this either.

What is your proof for either of these claims?

Lol it's ironic... Username contains engineering, yet speaks and offers no truth to substantiate his arguments.

Username contains nonsense, which is exactly what you spew. Good choice!

I also spew a really hard overhand left and have victimized a bunch of little weaklings like you. I see that you have challenged another user in this thread to a fight. Let's see you back that up "engineer".

I was the one who got challenged, keyboard warrior. It's up to the challenger to "back it up."

Amusingly I will submit mma fights featuring fighters such as JBJ, and my own casual experience with combat sports getting accidentally gouged and being blind for minutes at a time.

High percentage disarms are kinda bullshit though, you need fast hands, and to be a lot better for a super uncommon situation. Like, why bother?

Krav Maga is NOT a specific fighting system.

Nope. That's not the way that things work.

The moment that Krav Maga organizations began to hand out teaching certifications, it became a specific fighting system. It might draw from a number of arts, but there is a Krav approach. And with that there are specific techniques and a way of teaching those techniques that has evolved, been codified and is able to be passed along.

That is the very definition of a fighting system.
