Is the Keysi Fighting Method studied exclusively by any military unit in the world or is it mixed with other military martial arts such as Krav Maga, Silat, etc?

  • well.. I just wanted to know whether there's any military unit that is training purely KFM or they mix it with other military martial arts such as krav maga, etc... Do I really have to ask them under 2 different questions? – Sahan De Silva May 18 '17 at 16:20

    On this note, most of the training I have seen is called basic/advanced hand to hand combat training with a military branch stamp on it...probably to hide the exact styles of combat from anyone else who might learn and counter specifically. Governments like to proprietize their training programs. – mutt May 18 '17 at 20:40

    Apparently the root KFM instructors have separated and created a new martial art called 'DNA fight science' which is an extended version of KFM governed under Defense Lab. I've watched few clips of defense lab that's been instructed around the world. – Sahan De Silva May 19 '17 at 3:33

I cannot find any reference to a country's military training exclusively in the Keysi method. That said, I have yet to find any reference to a military officially using any part of KFM outside of sites associated with the style who claim that it's "used by military and security forces", which makes me wonder if it's used officially at all.

On further poking around for quotes, I can't even find much mention of it being used in the military from the Keysi sites, largely people claiming that it's aimed at military usage and people mentioning that their Keysi instructor has military experience.

    @mutt: It's hard to cite a negative, but I've added a handful of quotes that make it sounds like Keysi might be used in military contexts somewhere. The pickings are slim there. – Macaco Branco May 18 '17 at 21:48
