Publisher's Summary

You've heard about Krav Maga and want to learn the system but don't know where to start? Look no further. No other book is going to teach you Krav Maga from the ground up - teaching you the history and philosophy of this self-defense system before introducing principles, techniques and strategy. Through this methodology, you'll understand Krav Maga both mentally and physically, thus allowing you to master this effective self-defense system.

If you want to master Krav Maga, you're in the right place. Krav Maga is not something you learn overnight and it not something you can learn by simply listening to an audiobook. As with any martial arts systems, you need to train your body as well as your mind to master each movement and technique. Designed for those completely new to Krav Maga, Krav Maga for Beginners will introduce you to Krav Maga like never before by walking you through the mind of the developers of this self-defense system originally created for the Israeli military.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

    "Does all it can for an audiobook"

    Very Basic

    I highly recommend seeking out a way to formally practice any martial art. However, this will point you in the right direction.

    Story
    "Short and meaty"
    What did you love best about Krav Maga QuickStart Guide?

    Right to the point, good basic overview but stressed need for training.


    What about Kevin Kollins’s performance did you like?

    Very clear and easy to listen to. Had a good understanding of the content.


    What did you learn from Krav Maga QuickStart Guide that you would use in your daily life?

    When you are in a threatened state, you must do what is necessary to incapacitate the attacker and get away. I doubt i would do that daily but it is nice that this book has planted that ideal in the back of my mind for those times I am in dangerous places.

    If it has letters strung into words that form a story which draws me in, I won't be able to resist it. Is there a reader's anonymous?

    Story
    "Basic overview and intro"

    This is a very quick guide to what Krav Maga is, it’s history, and some basics. The book does not train you nor is it intended to (and says so right at the beginning). There is a companion pdf with this book which is essential to understanding what is being described. This is one book where it might be best to read it rather than listen because of the need to have a visual representation. If you have no idea what Krav Maga is then this will be a good book to find out what it is, if you are already training then probably not. The book does a good job of explaining that it you should get proper certified training. The narrator does a good job of reading the information.

    "Simplified Introductory Krav Maga..."
    What did you love best about Krav Maga QuickStart Guide?

    A simplified introduction to Krav Maga without too much detail. The PDF is required to gain an essence of the chapters, which made it difficult to listen alone by itself.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    Focus on the body's most vulnerable areas for self defense.

    "Not for Commute, but good title"

    I was provided a copy of this title in exchange for an unbiased review: This is the kind of book you want to sit & listen to. It won't work if you're not able to reference the PDF in-depth every step of the way. However, the information was useful, it's made me want to take up Krav Maga & kick people in the groin with relentless abandon

    "Great guide"
    If you could sum up Krav Maga for Beginners in three words, what would they be?

    Succinct, clear, and very practical. It's difficult to talk someone through movement, but this book managed to do it surprisingly well. I found it extremely useful.


    Any additional comments?

    The PDF could be improved slightly. More pictures could be added. Also some of the pictures show jabs and punches with the guard down and the chin not as tucked as it should be.

    "Informative beginners book!"
    Any additional comments?

    This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of Audiobook Blast. I have to say I was glad at first it was free because I had no idea what Krav Maga even was. The words "Conplete Beginner's Guide" is no lie, they crammed as much info into a short book as they could. The book is definately worth a credit, and the narrator needs a high five. Good book!

    "A Good Introduction"

    I have discovered that LISTENING to Self-Help/Instructional type Nonfiction books doesn’t really work for me. I want to hold the book, flip back and forth through it, and easily take down notes (without having to pause, rewind, play, pause…). I can just barely read such things as eBooks, but prefer print.

    However, I committed to reviewing this book, so I will do so. Note: I was unable to download the accompanying pdf, which might have helped a lot.

    Before jumping into the basic moves, this book gives a history and background on the development of Krav Maga as a ruthlessly efficient method of self-defense.

    The narration was a good fit for the material and conveyed a subtle emotional tone. Normally I listen to my audiobooks on 1.25 speed, this book seemed a bit fast to me though. Probably for the reasons stated above.

    I like that they make it clear you should seek out an instructor to truly learn this right. I also liked that they give warnings, such as - if you have a gun to the back of your head, only fight if there is no other choice etc.

    "Great Concepts for Beginners!"
    What made the experience of listening to Krav Maga for Beginners the most enjoyable?

    It's easy to understand, and the narrator's delivery is superb.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Krav Maga for Beginners?

    The brief history and basis of KM was the most memorable for me. It really does a good job of explaining the origins of the martial art.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The practical applications explanation portion.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I think "The Complete Beginner's Guide to Krav Maga" is already fitting and I would not change it.

    Any additional comments?

    Interesting to hear about where martial arts came from and is a good supplement for anyone learning any martial art, not just Krav Maga!
    A good ethos is portrayed as it should be with any martial art, only use when absolutely necessary!
