Too many people use the fact that they train "reality based" fighting as an excuse why they don't grapple, don't wrestle, and even don't spar. Yes, in a "street fight" I want to keep the fight standing, but so you don't fall you need to know what wrestlers and grapples can do and how they think. Yes, in a "real fight" I don't exchange punches like in sparring,I finish the fight as fast as possible. However can you think of a better way to get used to getting hit? or thinking under pressure ? And finally, coming from both worlds, I can say this; an MMA fight, or any other full contact fight, even though there is rules, make no mistake, it's a real fight. Someone wants to take your head off, and is standing in front of you. You want to prepare for a real fight? add full contact to your training, and the more the better. ICCS is on a mission to bring the good name back into Krav Maga. Yes, we are a "street fighting" system, however we also spar, wrestle, and grapple. And on a high level. We can fight real anywhere, with no excuse. Train smart, stay safe, Sharir R, ICCS Head instructor.
