This book is a great book for a beginner to Krav Maga. It discusses philosophy, basic strikes and combatives very well. The illustrations leave much to be desired, but they do their job sufficiently. It also has a detailed introductory 12 week workout and training plan. Read in tandem with Beginners should read this book in tandem with Levine's "Complete Krav Maga" book since the illustrations are much better.

This book was as good as it could be without taking the class. A link to some video demonstrations would have been nice for the visual learners. The book explained a lot and offered a lot of good info, but when it comes down to it...I just need to take a class and learn it the traditional way.

this book do not offer anything new to me. the technique and philosophy can be found in any other books.

what I like is the training programme at the end of the book.
