Thanks for any help/advice/stories you give. I'm very eager to learn.
I dont have any experience with Jiu Jitsu (boxing used to be my martial art). But.... I did observe someJiu Jitsu instructors.

Be very careful in selecting an instructor. The moves are very dangerous. Even with mature instructors and mature students, I suspect injuries are common. Mix in inmature instructors and aggressive students, and things can go down hill- fast.

For some reason in may area (Southeren California) there was a disproportioante number of immature "anarchy" or "semi skinhead" type instructors and alot of MMA wanna'be students. I personally witnessed one instructor glorifying aggression. While defensive aggression is ethical, I just did not like the guy's tone.

Likewise, a church friend's son signed up for a basic lessons at one place and received a permanent shoulder / elbow injury. I have a suspiscion that the injury might well have stemmed a gym with an immature isntructor and aggressive students.

In summarry, be careful with Jiu Jitus, both as a system and instructor / students wise. There are bad combinations of that in all martial arts, but it seems to be more so in Jiu Jitsu.

I took Krav up to level three. Excellent cardio conditioning and easy to remember instinctive self defense skills. As you get into levels two and three there is more ground fighting which is somewhat jiu jistu based. I had had back surgery, two level discetomy laminectomy only two years earlier and my back was fine with it. I did however break my finger twice requiring a pin. If you spar it can get pretty intense. I went at least three times a week, but four or five when I could. More you go, faster you learn, quicker you get in shape. I highly recommend it.

I think Krav Maga and Ju-Jitsu compliment each other quite well.

True.......all Jiu-Jitsu schools are not the same. Most Jiu-Jitsu schools are sport oriented and really do not teach self defense. At these types of schools the instructor have no clue how to teach students how to defend themselves. This is a big controversy within the Jiu-Jitsu community.

Your friend went to the wrong school....his son should have never been allowed to spar since he had no clue what he was doing. All new students have to go through a beginner program first before they are allowed to spar with full force. I see this happen all the time and chases students away.

I know this is a old thread but I did see some where training at the US embassy in Baghdad. I'm heading that way and wanted to see if that's still going on?
