Just went to my first Krav Maga session today, at the only school in the area where I live. A few of the newer members, myself included, were taught some basics, and I came away from the session fairly satisfied with Krav Maga’s reputation. I was a bit less satisfied by the training environment, but given that I’ve only been to the place this once, I’ll have to give it the benefit of the doubt.
The issue here is that while I would like to register for classes–perhaps for the 1 month block, which is a fee of about $200 for unlimited classes in a month–I don’t think I’m yet in a stable enough position for this kind of money and time commitment. While I really want to learn Krav Maga and other martial arts, I suppose I need to make sure I’m okay job-wise first.

I also signed up for a two-session trial of Muay Thai at KRU Training. This one isn’t free, but I’m hoping the fee will be worth the two introductory sessions, and that after those sessions I’ll have a good idea of what Muay Thai is. (see www.krutraining.com)
More to be written after I attend the first Muay Thai session.
