I am looking for a reputable Krav Maga or self-defense oriented school in my area. I live near Gainesville and Ocala. There are a few locations that claim to teach Krav Maga in my area, but I suspect they are more McDojos than anything else.
In Ocala, I have visited Vanguard Self Defense. The instructor is Guy Bruno, and he claims to be a champion weight lifter, Tae Kwon Do black belt and champion, and Krav Maga instructor certified by the US Krav Maga Association. I was not able to verify any of these claims, and it’s my understanding that USKMA is not especially reputable anyway. In any case, I was not particularly impressed with this school.
I have heard of a place in Gainesville called Karate USA that teaches Krav Maga as well, and I have heard that this school was good at one point, but I have yet to check it out, myself.
If anyone has any recommendations or suggestions, I would greatly appreciate it.
