Students often ask firearms instructors which martial arts they should learn in order to be prepared to defend themselves. Rob Pincus provides self defense tips and advises students to seek instruction in two areas: striking and grappling. Rob feels the most efficient way to develop close-quarters striking skills is at a Muay Thai school, and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for grappling. Dedicate a few months to learning the basics and then practice regularly.

    To my knowledge everything you mentioned is part of Krav Maga.

    As an Aikido marital arts instructor last 15 years, with strong back ground in Krav Maga years prior to Aikido, I agree with you overall. Certain arts just take to long to learn and train in as in aikido. Krav, MuayTai, are awesome arts for quick learning and strong self defense that have proven themselves in the streets. But any art if you desire to really learn it is GOOD!.... TY Rob...

    I am 71 years old and Krav Maga has given me everything that you discussed in your video. Repetition is necessary to learn any self defense system, but Krav is easy to learn and practice.

    A very righteous answer; of course I prefer the Marine Corps Close Combat Course; it is a good combination of things. With a little practice one can become very dangerous. Of course depending on the quality of the instructor, it could student that is in danger. Semper Fi Roku Dan
