About Krav Maga Journey
‘We do not receive wisdom; we must discover it for ourselves after a journey that no one can take for us or spare us.’ – Marcel Proust
At the start of this blog in mid 2011 I was a 42 year old American man living in New England. I put together this blog after researching various martial arts and being drawn to Krav Maga. I was a little frustrated by the lack of information on the web about the style, particularly information about what the style involved from a training standpoint. Yeah, you can find videos of master practitioners demonstrating techniques on willing students and seemingly endless clips from videos for sale but there was a definite gap there that I thought I could fill. Even if no one visited the site it would serve as a cathartic diary for me, tracing my steps along the way (hopefully some day!) to a black belt in the style.
I am no super-athlete breezing through the ranks or a member of some elite special forces who yawns through drills and sparring. I am merely a middle-aged guy looking to attain a higher fitness level, regain my sense of dedication and confidence, get off many of my medications, learn some valuable self-defense skills, and meet some new people with similar goals.
If you are reading this you have either inadvertently stumbled upon the blog with no interest and will be leaving the site momentarily or you are someone interested in Krav Maga as a student or soon-to-be student. If you are in the latter camp it’s my lucky day. I hope you stick around for my journey and find inspiration or at least a couple of laughs — probably at my expense — along the way.
Hey, I’m no expert (yet) and am always learning myself but if there’s anything on your mind you’d like to ask please don’t hesitate. I would be thrilled to answer whatever I can and provide you with my perspective, for what it’s worth.
Whatever is on your mind, let it rip!

If I get enough people submitting questions I’m planning on putting together a future post highlighting some questions (anonymously of course!). Let me know if you are okay with me including yours.
