TBH, be very careful when it comes to Krav. An instructor certification can be obtained for Krav in literally one weekend at a seminar. Do you want to train under someone who spent two days learning techniques that you might have to entrust your life to? You should either plan to train in something else entirely, or make damn sure you've got a good instructor for Krav. Krav is kinda a pyramid scheme in the martial arts world. Just be careful dude.
I've heard a bit about this. I looked at the schools in my city, and only one school is certified by the IKMF. The instructor is a black belt in both kyokushin and chito-kan karate, and did his instructor training with 4 of the highest-level trainers in Canada and Israel, and has to be re-certified yearly in person by one of the few Master-level trainers in order to maintain his IKMF certification, so I trust that he's the real deal.
