    Krav Maga or Wing Chun?

    I am looking to get started in either Wing Chun or Krav Maga. Which one would you say is better.

    1) I am looking for something that is designed for street application. I am not looking for an art based around sport.
    2) I want some conditioning.
    3) I do not just want a self defence. I want more of an offense art with striking.
    4) I also want something that is not one dimentional (ie. just striking or just grappling)

    Mainly I want something that is effective in real life situations. Weather it be an attack or a fight.

    I have taken JKD and liked it A LOT. I know that there is a lot of Wing Chun in JKD but I do not know how much or what has been modified. In addition I hear that Wing Chun is a lot more traditional the JKD wich would translate to a longer learning curve for actual street application, right?

    What would you suggest I take up? Thanks.

    I think that krav maga is a better choice as it is the most effective in real life situations.

    No Ben, he is not a troll, but a fine upstanding basher of trolls

    that's my suggestion
    What sort of dumb advice is that???, maybe the OP lives in the USA which might be just a bit too long of a Bus ride to Tel Aviv, not to mention that maybe he doesn't want to join an army and be an abject slave to various Politicos. I would have to say that looking at your dumb post, we have another smuck on the boards oh, and you say you are a bouncer, I would say you are just another ITG (see attached pic).

    For the OP, I would agree with the comments made above about Boxing being very good, simple & effective, I would also say that Muay Thai, San Shou are great aswell.
    From what I understand about Krav Maga, there is some good stuff learnt in KM and I would certainly advise KM over WC if your choice is limited to just those 2.

    I guess, as a practitioner of Krav for the last 5 years, I would have to say that, in any altercation, instinct is going to take over. No matter what discipline you happen to study, at the root, when you're facing an attacker, your best defense is to strike at the first sign of aggression. I find that regardless of training, my first reaction is control, and, as one poster replied, "the old one two"

    It stands to reason, and has been my experience that in any fight, once an aggressor has the idea placed in his head, (Usually by way of a painful, direct strike) that he is going to be hurt, the fight has virtually been won. At that point, it's just a matter of him fighting enough to save face, without being hurt too badly.

    In this regard, any style of self defense, once studied and practiced will give you the reflexes and instincts to defend yourself to a point where the situation has been diffused and both parties can walk away.

    Some would disagree and believe that any fight that ends without blood or something broke is a draw. I believe that as long as you're able to walk away without being severely injured and have sufficient confidence that there is no risk of a second attack, then whatever fighting style you incorporate is effective.

    Just find one that appeals to you, keeping in mind the time required to effectively master the techniques, your level of conditioning, and future ability to continue studying.

    here in LA, if those were my only 2 choices,

    I'd choose Krav Maga
    There are some really good WC instructors in LA. Eric Oram and Master Joe Sayah.
