The bullet travels from the muzzle with a velocity of 950 feet per second (fps) meanwhile the muzzle energy measures 460 foot pounds. This ammo is overall designed for hunting, target shooting and self-defense. Moving on to the bullet performance on the other hand, this solid projectile delivers unmatched consistency and reliability, while maintaining the near 100% weight retention for the most accurate shots.
The Blazer Brass ammunition is widely known for its affordable and economical price, despite delivering a great shooting performance. If you are a spendthrift person, this .45 ACP ammo is totally suitable for you. First things first, it is equipped with 50 rounds per box.
Richard doesn’t advise taking “combatives” (martial arts like Krav Maga, etc) for any reason but exercise or general self-improvement, unless you’re going into a job in which fights are routine. “[T]he average civilian out there who takes taekwondo three times per week, gets their black belt in some strip mall, and all of a sudden thinks they can defend themselves against a psycho is dreaming.”
1.) I am considering Aikido and also cross-training in Krav Maga since I have heard that Aikido takes so long to master. My choices for the above are because I have heard that Aikido is a good self-defense martial art that allows you to defend yourself w/o having to seriously injure the opponent. The downside is that it takes a long time to learn it to the point where it is effective / you can properly apply it. This is where Krav Maga comes in. It seems to cover the areas where Aikido might be lacking in the beginning. I also chose Aikido because I am thinking it is something I can continue doing into my 50’s as well. Are Aikido and Krav Maga a good combination or would you recommend something else?
There are of course many people that would disagree, however having met a few Wing Chun instructors I have really had my views changed over the years, as I too failed to see the structure behind the art. The power of Wing Chun lies within its direct approach. In the art, the practitioner becomes very strong and has almost laser targeted strikes to the face, a bit like being hit with a pole, repeatedly.
In this shooting tips video, Rob Pincus demonstrates the dynamic deviation control drill and the important lessons it teaches to defensive shooters. Dynamic deviation control means that when shooting while you, the target, or both are moving, your sight alignment and sight picture won’t be perfect. And that’s ok. Moving the Gun Rob teaches this

The Female Awareness self defense course is designed to make you more aware, prepared, and ready for any situation that may occur in your everyday life on any given day. This course differs from other self defense classes in that they start from the point of attack, and since I believe attacks begin before it becomes physical, we teach how to avoid the attack altogether.
Hi martial artist. I was told that it is not good to learn striking arts if you lift weights, because weight lifting is a pushing motion while striking is a snapping motion. Is it really that big of a deal? Are there any striking arts I can learn as a weight lifter? Is it ok to learn krav maga if you lift weights? I was told I should not train muay thai if I am a weight lifter becasue it will cause problems.
Although it’s beautiful to watch, Capoeira also ranks in the useless column when the s–t hits the fan. African slave descendants in Brazil created Capoeira for self-defense; they didn’t get busted for doing it because it looked like a dance. Practitioners can get in great shape and become very acrobatic, but the art itself won’t win you many fights—although this dude found one of the kicks useful in a cage match.
This, however, is not Krav Maga as created by Imi Lichtenfield, and one should not be confused by the two. I personally think Moni just incorporated the word Krav Maga as a sales gimmick to attract people. Nonetheless, it is an effective martial art, and all of the moves and techniques are applicable in real life. I actually found a lot of similarities between Combat Krav Maga (CKM) and Combat Sambo, probably because both arts have roots in Jiu Jitsu.
Thanks to its effective grappling techniques, it is also widely used amongst MMA fighters. Though it has some limitations when it comes to striking techniques, its focus on tug-of-war type drills with partners has proven to aid its practitioners to succeed in real life altercations.
Yoga is an excellent practice to complement your Krav Maga training. It increases flexibility, balance, and awareness, all of which can go a long way in keeping you alert and ready to defend yourself. If you have the means, taking an additional yoga class is a great idea, but if not, taking 15 to 20 minutes each day to practice a basic yoga poses at home will still help.
On false move in Judo, you get thrown and the match is over. There is a certain intensity and finality in Judo that is not matched in other sports. Wrestling, Boxing and especially BJJ train you to be patient and create openings. In Judo there is that element of knowing that if you misstep by an inch can end the match. This forces you to operate with cautious haste.Cautious haste is how you need to defend yourself.The term we use in the SDTS is take your time…but hurry up.

Krav Maga should teach you the basics and proficiency of self defence within 6 months depending on your own commitment. Muay Thai is also not a bad option but for self defence I would rather recommend Krav Maga. All the best
