Nivas Kothandapani: Of all the Teachers I’ve trained with, only Frank said “Be a Warrior, not a Fighter”

Posted on Posted in Quotes

Frank, I have told you several times, may be let me reiterate again.. It is very hard to get a Teacher like you..the only person I’ve met whom I can argue in a friendly way and also willing to give answers after that too is YOU… I may not be a BIG Fan of Krav Maga and have argued with you on it several times..but I ain’t going with others..You are a Good Friend.

[] [Post] “Don’t Fight,Fighting is Very Ugly”..

You don’t get to hear these words from any Martial Art Teachers.

Of all the Teachers I’ve trained with, Guru Franklin Joseph is the only Person who says “Be a Warrior, not a Fighter”


Excerpt from Guru Franklin Joseph

Nivas Kothandapani, you did challenge me to question Krav Maga. And I was forced to gather all my years of combat experience to help answer those question. Asking questions in Krav Maga is one of ways to understand street crime & reality fighting. Thanks, for allowing me to answer your queries, and in the end it seems we both were enriched to some extend. —
