Well gang, I have my first week of Haganah training under my belt. This one goes out primarily to KenpoTex,mainly 'cause he asked for it. This martial system is an eclectic one , being a mesh of other styles. Boxing handwork, Straight Blast from JKD, Thai boxing elbows, Philipine foot traps,etc you get the idea. The system does'nt use a belt testing type of gradeing , but instead is broken down to 17 wk cycles. after a series of 4 cycles your are getting into the expert range. The first night we studied over ways to defend against suprise grab/assaults, The next night was knife and knife defense. the third night is a review of material gone over the previous lesons.As far as conditioning goes , you will definetly work up a sweat. The lessons for the class tomorrow night will be hand gun defense.
The reason I chose this type of training was to find something to find a system to compliment my handgun training.In other words a combstive system that already has a contingent for someone who carries concealed. The bottom line is that I am having a blast with this stuff.
Hey Jaltered, Sorry i am getting back to you late. Yes there is a place in McKinney that is supposed to teach Haganah. I found their add in Black Belt Mag. It is Broadway's Martial Arts and their phone number is:210-529-9000. Give them a call and check it out.Hope this helps.
