Anyone take any martial arts out there? I take Israeli Krav Maga. It is a military martial art, so you can't really compare it to things like Karate or Kung Fu. It is built for speed, effectiveness and sheer brutality, while others are often based around concentration, balance and discipline. I'd be happy to discuss Krav Maga more, but I'd be interested in hearing about martial arts that others take (boxing and wrestling ARE martial arts, so discuss that if you take it) and what you think their advantages and disadvantages are, or any interesting facts about that martial art (it's history, interesting moves, etc.).
