I am a young Jewish kid. In my spare time I enjoy sports friends and watching TV. My favorite sports are basketball soccer and baseball. I also enjoy Israeli Krav Maga I have become an expert at an early age and used it many time to my advantage.

What do you think the difference is between Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Krav Maga.

It said you were a demolition expert what was it like being able to make explosions.

Eli,

Thank you for taking the time to visit our site and get in touch with me.

I hope you are not getting into fights, from the little you have shared with me it sounds like you may and learning any martial art is not prove how big and tough you are, but to learn discipline and respect while simultaneously learning how to defend yourself.

The Krav Maga I learned in the IDF is a very basic form of the fighting style, it is taught as a last resort technique for defense and to subdue an attacker. That being said most of the focus of Krav Maga is in its standing and striking while BJJ is primarily focused on the ground game, joint manipulations and submissions, and chokes. You may want to get in contact with Josh, he is much more proficient and advanced in both martial art styles than I am.

First and foremost I would like remind you that I am no demolitions expert, that being said I thoroughly enjoyed the course and gaining the knowledge that it provided me with. It gave me a new found respect for the Army Corp of Engineers and the wrecking crews that tear down large structures with the help of explosives. It is also kind of cool building something in the demolitions range only to know that you are laying the explosives to blow up it; kind of like a 5 year old at the beach, who when it is time to go home jumps onto his sand castle, destroying it with the odd grin of sheer joy and satisfaction at having wrecked it.

I hope you have found my answers informative and helpful. Please feel free to visit the site again with any further questions you may have.
