    Speaking of Krav Maga... this showed up on my fb feed today.

    MOD WARNING: The soundtrack does contain some curse words.


    1'40'': Moves right into the bat...with near down and the other hand barely covering his face. Very effective...if your goal is to get your head bashed in.

    1'56'' and 2'01'': Risks getting stabbed or shot over the content of your pocket? Smart decision.

    Not even going to comment on the rest.

    i recently took a few lessons for krav maga and all i can say so far is that i love it. make sure your gym and instructor is legit though

    hard and soft

    My instinct would be that as a beginner you could find it confusing, like learning tai chi chuan and shotokan simultaneously. But maybe your body and brain can do that sort of thing - mine can't.
    I would suggest, get a foundation in one and then see if the other complements it.
    But first of all, find out if either of the instructors are any good and go with whoever you prefer.

    Technique and scenario

    Yes. Pretty grim.
