comment What are good exercises for building grip strength for judo and BJJ?
In rock climbing some guy do (one) fingers pull-up as workout. I still wonder if it is dangerous for the fingers.

comment Why is Krav Maga expensive?
I think unless you are proficient in another MA or combat sport there is no way you can learn Krav Maga from books and DvDs only. Even if you are a black belt in another system you still need somebody for drill the technics

comment Is it true that most fights end on the ground? What is the evidence?
@DaveLiepmann I put this comment because of the previous comment about what happen when one fighter want to go to the ground (second comment). In the comment I understand that it's said that if one fighter want to go to the ground he will get is always get is wish. Just for said that not always the case.

comment What time requirement and certification does one need to become a Krav Maga instructor?
Just a precision about what you write before, you let let think that I ask "can I be an instructor in 3 year". As an example, I wrote "Can you be an instructor in 3 years ?". Maybe I'm not interested at all by be an instructor, I'm just curious about the formation of the Krav Maga instructor ...

comment What time requirement and certification does one need to become a Krav Maga instructor?
@DaveNewton for come back on the point abc. About a) it's depend of the country, some country have more legislation on harmonization about sportive activity. b) You said obvious. Well, obvious if your are use to martial art . Some activity have very specific and harmonized chart for the requirement needed to be instructor. c) I didn't expected that there is so many different association with different requirement. That not make sens for me that every association can give a different answer since it's the same activity.

comment What time requirement and certification does one need to become a Krav Maga instructor?
@DaveNewton thank you for your comment. For a: do you said there is a lack of specificity because I didn't specified any country ? Well I was expected they may have some common directive from the country of origin. But I agree about this so I add US to the question. For b: I'm not agree about this. Yes I can ask to my instructor but I would like a general objective reply. For c: I'm not agree with this objection because what is asked here is some precision.

You can do a palm hell punch for avoid breaking your finger. For the leg depend of your ability, you need to be very good for hit the head or you will finish on the ground. Well depend of what you are practicing .

comment Straight punch to the head and knockout
I agree that not that not look the best punch for make a knockout but it look like the more easy punch, especially if you have long arm. Also you may want to not get to close to your opponent for some reason.

comment What time requirement and certification does one need to become a Krav Maga instructor?
nice irony. There is several reason why I don't want to call. One of them is that the owner of the website have a commercial interest in the certification of the instructor. Just look at the price section who is very well documented. I would prefer something more unbiased from another source.
