Krav Maga self defense and fighting classes at a official training center are the best and quickest way to master Krav defensive techniques and tactics. However, if you can not find a Krav training center located near you, you can still teach yourself at home with a dedicated training area.
Three ways you could train on your own would be home study with books and DVDs, online training, or one-on-one long distance training with a certified instructor.
Maga self defense training with books and DVDs are an excellent
alternative for budget-minded people and those who do not have a Krav
training center within a reasonable driving distance.
While you can develop effective skills with self defense training at home, the lack of reality-based drills with other students does not allow you to develop the situational awareness and instinctive reactions that could mean the difference between life and death on the streets.
Taking self defense classes at a official training center provides the most effective way to become proficient with Krav self defense and fighting techniques and tactics. While teaching yourself at home may not turn you into a lethal street warrior, you can definitely train to a level that will at least give you a fighting chance of survival against perpetrators of violence on the streets.
A tremendous amount of free self defense training videos are available on sites like YouTube. When browsing the free videos and tutorials, you will find that many are created by Krav Maga wannabes that maybe took some free classes at a Krav training center or watched a few free videos and are now self proclaimed experts. Fortunately, you will have no trouble finding high-quality instructional videos by certified instructors from official Krav training centers.
Whether you teach yourself with books and DVDs or by studying with an online training program, you should still find opportunities to test and hone your skills with other serious Kravists. You could fulfill the need for personal instruction and guidance by attending a Darren Levine Seminar and Lecture as often as your schedule will allow you.
Many certified Krav instructors offer one-on-one training. Try finding a instructor that is a day trip or so from where you live and seeing if the instructor would be willing to coach you long distance. Ideally, the instructor will teach you one-on-one for a few hours and then give you a curriculum to practice until your next personal coaching session.
