I've wanted to take Krav for a long time. I also think I need to take some EMT classes as well.

What do you recommend? Been thinking about doing that for a long time...


Anything besides that MMA BS where they literally teach you out of the golden rule which is .. never kick a man while he's down .. I can't even watch it on tv because they spend half the fight in the missionary position.

I'd like to do boxing except I'm 6'5" and I don't think I can put in the work to keep my abs hard enough to absorb blows to my solar plexus and not crumple like a leaf. If a trained boxer ever gets mad at me I'm curling up into a ball.

You have two options:

A) Find a local gym. Most gyms that teach any mixed martial art or boxing typically have self-defense oriented classes.

B) Ask Jangler to find one of the 14 year old girls who has a restraining order on him. She should know a place.

Aikido and Kempo are very practical, Tae Kwon Do not so much.
