I have been considering Krav Maga for a long time, about ready to pull the trigger on this but had some questions. Pardon me, this might be a very long post. Hopefully I am creating this topic in the appropriate forum.
First - there are two schools in Seattle area, one in Bellevue and one in Renton. I was wondering if anyone can provide their experiences or opinions regarding either school.
Second - how many days/week should I devote to Krav Maga? Most schools offer four to six days of training for level 1. How many days are considered adequate?
Third - i'm currently conducting strength training and using the StrongLifts program. I'm in my ninth week of a 12-week cycle. I enjoy this kind of training and would like to continue. The routine requires that I lift three days per week with squats being performed on all three days. The program recommends that I do no other activities on days off to facilitate full recovery and growth. My question is are there any members here who do StrongLifts, Starting Strength or other similar program? If so, how do you fit Krav Maga training into your week?
Fourth - I'm not really doing any cardio or HIIT fitness training (though I do enjoy it). The StrongLifts program zaps my energy and my lifting days are quite long (1.5 hours), so at the end of it I just want to get out of there. Will it be good practice to do some HIIT cardio before I start Krav Maga?
Fifth - We have a good boxing gym in Seattle. Should I start there first for a few months before I start Krav Maga?
Thanks for the time!
