Format: Paperback
I have to disagree with the other reviewers here so far. No it doesn't teach you everything you need to know about the Krav Maga techniques for fighting. But neither is it a useless book. As the authors state, the intention of the book is to use as a guide to becoming fit - a useful part of self defence - if not a total necessity. But your chances are far greater if you are fit. This book combines and excellent array of multi-disciplinary exercises which combine in a core routine(s).. a blend of Yoga, Plyometrics, Speed work, running, core conditioning.. It excels in doing what it says it will do: provide you with drill to increase your ability in 'combat'.. However, it provides only basic Krav Maga defences. If you can't get to a class go to one of the official Krav Maga websites and buy the instructional DVDs - combine them with this book and you should have a reasonable grounding in the combat system. Some practice in a safe and controlled manner with a friend should round out your basic KM. But even a couple of seminars a year is better than not going to get live instruction at all. Simply put - it's a good book and a good addition to any Kravist's library - or even someone who just wants to get fit but doesn't have time to combine all the cross training they may like to do!!

Format: Paperback
The Everything Krav Maga book is an inspiring method for learning self defense. I learned from the book that it was developed by a man being victimized in World War II Europe, and later used to train the Israeli army. After reading the introduction, it dawned on me that it is also the perfect self defense technique for women - who are so often subjected to violence, often by their husbands or people that they know. It is a method based on fighting without the benefit of weapons or size. Anybody, regardless of your physical size, can learn how to be a good fighter using the Krav Maga technique. I found this book to be a perfect introduction, and ongoing training manual, for Krav Maga. The book introduces you to all aspects of the technique, and understanding its background and philosophy is integral to the actual combat techniques. I don't think you could have a book on the real Krav Maga without discussing the philosophy to it. This text does a fantastic job teaching the fundamentals. They also include lots of hands on practice techniques with photographs that demonstrate the techniques in action. The book ends with technique drills, fatigue drills, and reaction drills, as well as full workout routines. It also includes stretching and the workouts will sculpt the body nicely. It will give you really hot legs, gluts and abs! I've noticed my body change after doing the workouts regularly. The three authors have varied experience with Krav Maga, which is why the book covers a wide range of ways to approach the technique. I thought this made the book strong. This book will teach you everything you need to know to fight using the Krav Maga technique.

I agree with some of the previous comments made about this book. However, one must take into consideration the real purpose of this book. This book promotes the highly effective Krav Maga Self-Defense System by explaining the various exercises that are part of an over-all program. If you desire to get into great fighting condition and do exercises that relate directly to using Krab Maga techniques, this is a MUST book for you.

If you are seeking actual instruction in the various self-defense situations one might encounter on the street, you need to purchase other excellent Krav Maga books on the market. In conclusion, this is a book for anyone who is interested in combat fitness and the Krav Maga approach to learning self-defense.

Rating: 4 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: Shotokan Karate for Self-Defense: Combat Karate for the street).

Format: Paperback
Author of the AIf you bought this book, or are thinking of buying this book, in order to learn Krav Maga, you are in for a very big disappointment. However, if you bought this book, or are planning on buying this book, and read the title expecting to learn something about fitness, then you are not going to be too disappointed. Although depending upon your own personal fitness background and training you may be.

I had seen this book on the shelf at one of the local bookstores for several months and finally decided to pick it up and browse through it. I looked through it for several minutes and decided to go ahead and spend a couple of extra bucks on it to see what I could get out of it, which wasn't the entire book by any means, but I did get enough out of it to justify the money spent on it and the 4 star rating that I give it.

The author's go over a very wide range of fitness and health related issues and techniques in this book and perhaps too many to do justice to any one particular topic. A lot of the topics are very limited and really don't provide a lot of information and are more of a brief introduction more than anything else.

If you are looking for a good overall introduction to a wide variety of fitness training methods to help improve your martial arts ability, then you will probably benefit from this book. However, if you are looking for detailed explanations on how to execute a wide variety of exercise techniques under any one topic, for example; plyometrics or weight lifting, then this book is definitely not for you.

In closing I would like to reiterate that this book is definitely a good buy if you are merely looking for a book to provide a good but brief overview on a variety of fitness and health related topics.
