I realized a while back that the blog posts are okay but sometimes there are topics for which the format just doesn’t handle adequately. These are bigger topics that I feel require more than just several paragraphs to cover sufficiently. So, what to do? Do I create a series of related blog posts over the course of several weeks? I suppose that’s one way to do it. The other way, the way I chose, was to put together a Guide in Kindle format. Hence the concept of the KMJ Guide was born.
This particular Guide is 74 pages long and is the first of several I have planned. It’s focused on what’s always been the most popular topic on kravmagajourney.com, namely “what can I expect when I start Krav Maga?” It includes a quick overview of Krav Maga and addresses areas like class structure, sparring, and the “elephant in the room” — fear. It contains tips that will prove very handy in your first 6 months of training (and beyond).
Each tip is inspired by the hundreds of search queries that are performed to land folks on my blog, email questions I get, and questions I see posted frequently on Reddit — so the tips are highly relevant to the kinds of questions new and prospective students might ask. If you are considering Krav Maga, are a new student, or know of someone who is considering giving it a try, take a look and let me know what you think.
