Any Experiences with Classes at Masada Tactical?
 
That pretty much says it all. My limited interaction with them, they seem like knowledgeable, good folk. Has anyone taken any of their classes? Pros/cons?

nice people. definitely not mainstream "tactical" training as you would see from the well known instructors. from what I have seen they are focused around israeli methodology.

You can't argue with success

Well, that's not the only successful method.

No, I have never heard of them. In addition to my NRA training classes I use Retired Seal Chris Saijon (spelling??) who has an online program with some really good dry fire exercises. Granted a pay a monthly fee but I have found it is worth it for me. John

Thanks guys. They seem like good folk, and it's convenient. I'm actually going there for a martial arts seminar to feel the joint out. I'll report back.

Masada Tactical is run by former IDF Special Ops. They instruct MSP and several federal agencies. They specialize in Krav Maga and Israeli military tactics.
They recently became a full service FFL.

Yeah, I had a revolver shipped to them. Easy to work with.

Krav Maga :thumbsup:

I talked to them a bit about their martial arts classes. I am not a huge fan of Krav Maga, apparently they teach an "evolved" version of it.

My understanding, Krav Maga was developed as a way to quickly teach soldiers hand to hand combat and, as a result, there wasn't a lot of depth or breadth. Sounds like it has grown quite a bit, though, and I have no first hand experience.

After years of practicing Hapkido, I've been thinking of going the other way and studying Kung Fu. Something a little more esoteric and way outside my wheelhouse.
