Is Krav Maga effective for Law Enforcement?

Krav Maga is the Martial Art used by the Israeli Defense Forces (Special Forces). This originated from the Czech Special Forces system, called Brano.

Krav Maga is designed and geared for the Military Special Forces. In civilian use, it's completely over reactive when Deadly Force is not justified.

Who are Special Forces members?

They are the best of the best of the enlisted military personnel. They are extremely fit individuals that do nothing else, but train in between missions. They travel and work in groups, never alone. They are armed to the teeth with weapons that are not allowed for normal civilians or even Law Enforcement. The rules of engagement and the individuals they come in contact with do not have the same rights as U.S. Citizens.

The reality...

Law Enforcement, Fire, and EMS are NOT Special Forces Operators in a combat zone. They work with U.S Citizens and they are responsible for the well being of the citizens they interact with, even if it means taking them to jail or prison.
