As noted above, I won't trade blows with the other guy... I already know that's not my strength and I'm going to get hit... So personally, I'm closing with people grapple or opening up a distance to use a weapon.

I'll take that first hit that I know I'm gonna get in order to get a choke in or throw an opponent... Winning is not about not getting hit, it's about preventing the other guy from getting up.

Minuteman,

I was at Krav Maga Columbia for over a year. Really enjoyed it, but I think I got more physical conditioning from it than "fighting skills". I already was trained in most of what was covered from private training I have taken over the years. However, what they taught seemed to blend well with what I already do.

Thanks, I received a PM recommendation to a course that I found you had written a VERY positive review of. I'm already a member of a gym at work, and have opportunities to do some more local training. Undecided at the moment.

I'd appreciate knowing as they make it tough to find out. I think because the fees vary by gym and how busy they are (popular). Like joining any gym, can vary a bit.
I signed up for Krav only. Fees were as follows (I stopped in for tour first):

6 month plan - $199 enrollment fee ($99 if sign up same day as visit) - $129 per month - $129/month month-to-month afterwards

12 month plan - $149 ($75 that day) - $109 per month - $109 month to month

24 month plan - $99 ($50) - $89 per month - $89 month to month

To add Krav fitness (any of the fit classes) is extra $20 per month

I will probably upgrade to 24 month plan before my six months are out since so far I enjoy the classes and think I will stick it out for at least 2 years.

So kind of expensive since I'm used to my life membership fee at Bally's, which is only $10 maintenance fee per month, but maybe not out of line with some of the nicer gyms. I don't know to be honest, but I think it's slightly expensive. Still, since I don't expect CCW to be legal anytime soon (no disrespect to MSI), it's my only alternative, plus I like to have a box of tools to go to so I don't always have to, god forbid, go nuclear (grab a gun) in every confrontation.

I visited Masada Tactical, but their class schedule did not work for me so some training was better than no training IMO. Basically, most of their classes are weeknights, but sometimes they meet too early for me to get to in time from work. They are closed Saturday, I believe (day of rest), and Sunday is reserved for special classes. But, check out both places like I did and decide for yourself. For me, Krav Maga had more convenient schedule, and, for my single membership, I can go to both Columbia and Owings Mills, which allows me even more flexibility to make a class.

Like your patches redrum

The title of your thread caught my attention, as the reason why I've taken up shooting is because I can't train bjj anymore due to injury. I trained for about 7 years and loved it! But one too many guillotines and my neck is screwed up (note to self; tap early rather than late).

But I think the most important training is in your mind. Just be aware of your surroundings, avoid certain areas, be cognizant of what's happening around you. I don't care what type of training you have, if you get jumped by 4-6 guys you're going to take a pounding.

And the comment about running away is spot on. If its fishy, walk away if you can. If you can't, then yes, any type of training will help.
