The one is a subset of the other. There is insufficient material for two articles, and unlikely to be on the future. Fiddle Faddle 13:45, 28 November 2013 (UTC)

Capitalization[edit]

I wonder why it is "Krav Maga" (which seems like a person's name) and not "krav maga"? --Spiros71 (talk) 08:55, 8 February 2014 (UTC)

Most of the sources in the article refer to it as "Krav Maga". --Λeternus (talk) 09:21, 6 August 2014 (UTC)

Criticism section[edit]

The Criticism section is extremely innapropriate and not at all to Wikipedia standards. It is cited incorrectly and is little above the tirade of an MMA fan who thinks krav maga is "lame". I don't have the knowledge of the subject to fix.  Mailman9  (talk)  16:56, 10 September 2014 (UTC)

I agree, it is poorly written and the source only mentions Krav Maga in passing (qualifying as an example of coatracking -- it's more in praise of MMA than it is a criticism of Krav Maga). It's also not clear that the source is a reliable source. I'm sure there are plenty of good quality criticisms of Krav Maga that are well-written and properly sourced and they should be included here but this is not an example of one.

The source is the authoritative Italian Grappling and MMA Federation. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 151.13.16.218 (talkcontribs) 23 September 2014 (UTC)
You haven't addressed the other problems. SQGibbon (talk) 00:52, 24 September 2014 (UTC)

http://www.figmma.it/mixed-martial-arts/che-cosa-sono-le-mma.html MMA (born in brazil, and originally called Vale Tudo, a sport were fighter from different stiles fight each other to see which martial arts or combat sports was the most efficient) have exposed the martial arts-scam, specifically all the martial arts that make people belive they can learn to defend them self without ever compete. The first MMA competitions (fought bare nuckles and with less restrictive rules than today) demonstrate that all the martial arts that do not include sports competition (such as krav maga) are totally ineffective in a real fight situation, based on the principle that: "You cannot learn how to fight without fighting". As a matter fact there was a total domination of the martial arts and combat sports that involve sports competition (Lotta, Grappling, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, luta livre brasiliana, sambo, judo, sanda, muay thai, kick boxing, boxe, karate kumite, ecc...) compared to the martial arts that don't do it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 93.40.115.168 (talk) 19:34, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
