    I’m definitely moved by the dedication and commitment Roy has for Krav Maga.  Quite the self-defense system that would help anybody really to diffuse a situation and maintain your personal security.  One of the biggest challenges he had to also overcome was learning another language – Hebrew.  That’s not one of those languages you learn overnight.  Nice video.  Intense moves.  

    1. David Siteman Garland says:

      Ivan – Great point. Definitely not easy. 🙂 (I remember my Bar Mitzvah haha)
