Hey guys I’m new to the forum,
I’m 23 years old and am looking to pursue a federal law enforcement career so obviously self defense is a main priority. I’ve recently watched all three of the “Bourne” movies and was very impressed with the fighting styles I was told were used in it(Krav Maga and Kali).
As far as experience i have none outside of some freshman wrestling experience in hs (graduated in 2006). So I really know nothing about fighting. I’ve spent most of last night and this morning looking up info on it and it really seems like this is a take no prisoners/ boaderline dirty style as someone put it.
I guess my question(s) would be:
1. How does it fair against multiple simaltaneous attackers?
2. How does it fair in regards to other fighting styles (what does it matchup well with and have problems with)?
3. It seems like there is a real concern as to it being too “Americanized” and there is a shortage of true instructors, where could I find one?
I’m planning on going to DC in the near future so schools in that area would be of interest.

Re: Krav Maga/ Kali
Having more than 15yrs as a LEO. KM is definitely the way to go. Yes, KM is a down and dirty fighting style. Especially in law enforcement, it all about going home at the end of your day!! Check out kravmaga.com to find a local school/instructor.
