Don't get me wrong, I don't mean to discourage anyone to do things they enjoy. But I do know most people are full of...well you know. Shooting usually the instructors know what they are doing, but Krav Maga to me is like all the other martial arts places. A student stays long enough to be good enough to teach and most aren't really good enough to teach nor all that good at what they do. I been in the martial arts world for over a decade before I left it behind, so trust me I seen a lot of stuff like that.

If the opportunity was there, I would prefer to learn from someone that did the real deal; for instance someone from any of the special forces (Seals; Ranger; Green Beret; etc.).

If someone knew their shit and opened a school I would be there in a second.

The place I recommended in Baltimore is run by a former Israeli infantry recon man. All his staff are former military, some from SOF. The place I recommended in SA is run by former SOF. So yes, point well taken, but I was already filtering for your concerns.

No, sorry, but I would start by contacting the reputable groups and asking them if they can rec a trainer or outfit in your area. They all know each other.

My good buddy went out to a course in Las Vegas that was a week long. He came back with some legit new skill sets. Everything from personal security detail to evasive driving. I can get you the info if you want.

I was under the impression the best skill to have in Las Vegas is counting cards.

You'll need your CQC for when casino security figures it out and escorts you out back for a chat.

Just posting this for the benefit of others - I found this place in Thailand that does Krav for long term residentials - pretty sure I can find a local Shotting Range to 'create' a decent course.

Cheap living aswell. Reviews look good.

Our company has put together custom courses for various tiers of students, that have been well received. Lately in the last 3 years or so, we've been getting border guards and tactical teams from one particular European country coming to Idaho for training. Runs about $1,000/day for 1 on 1 private lessons, and less for groups. I'm in WA State now and cannot participate as much, but my partner who is still going strong, is a foreign Spec-Ops veteran in the U.S. on a green card and has 20 years in close protection of primarily celebrities, CEO's and heads of state. Let me know if there's any interest.
