A Note From the Publisher
Praise for David Kahn and Krav Maga: Weapon Defenses
"The United States Marshal Service and the entire Law Enforcement Community has a great friend in instructor David Kahn. The Krav Maga System is a no-nonsense self-defense system that deals with threats at all levels...I could not recommend a more qualified instructor."-Lori M. Bell, U. S. Marshall, United States Marshal Service.
"David Kahn and his associate instructors were professionals who took the mission accomplishment and instruction to a whole new level. I have been doing martial arts over 22 years and honestly say that Krav Maga is a single most effective fighting system...Krav Maga allows both armed and unarmed combat to flow from the same basic instinctual movements making it perfect for the military, law enforcement professional, or the professional housewife. Krav Maga is a simple system with brutal effectiveness. I would recommend David Kahn and this program to any organization looking for a time and cost effective program."-T.J. Ardese, Lt. Col. United States Marine Corps.
"I had the awesome experience recently, along with several other Special Agents of the Detroit FBI, of participating in Krav Maga session with David Kahn and Rick Blitstein. As a Defensive Tactics Instructor for the Detroit Field Division, I had skepticism about the program due to its reputation as a style too aggressive for the needs of law enforcement. I was soon shown otherwise. (They)...have brought an already top notch fighting system to another level, a level all law enforcement should be pursuing for the safety of its officers and the citizens."-John E. Ouellet, Special Agent, FBI, Detroit.
