Hold on to your wallet. Its nothing but a marketing stunt.
There's a reason why they call it Krap Maga.
Having said that, its better than sitting in a couch all day long, but be careful about the false sense of power and security that floats around KM.
A 60 year old grandma does KM for a month and thinks she can kill a 200 pound thung with the secret KM strike.
A 20 year old guy after boxing for a month is only humbled by more experienced boxers, and while he's likely getting his ass kicked in the gym, he can handle himslef much better than grandma on the streets.
The marketing side says its not a sport so KM cant be measured against boxing, judo, bjj, but then again any guy that seriously practices boxing, thaiboxing or bjj will mop the floor with a KM student.
Same for the use of weapons. Learn from an actual firearms instructor how to use guns, dont take advice on it from a KM instructor.

One things for sure: a guy that boxes and spars once a week completely destroys the KM wannabe badass that has been wasting his time with that BS for a decade and never sparred "because KM aint a sport, its too deadly to spar doe! IDF special forces use it!".
If you dont know this then you never boxed and you dont know the first thing about the KM scam.

I actually quite like how Krav Maga takes from the statistics the most common ways you are likely to be attacked and implements strategies to counterract them.

My brother does it and stands by it. As a self defence it's excellent as it incorporates mental techniques like learning how to control fear.

As for whether it stands up to boxing, well that's irrelevant. It's hardly likely that you'll be attacked on the streets by a martial arts professional/boxer. And if you are, we'll you're going to be in trouble regardless of your self defence background.

As usual the ignorance the dumb money is flowing here at the Agora.

The question is what is your goal? krav Maga does have a fair amount of hype and is the product of taking Ju Jutsu, Wrestling, Boxing, a few Karate techniques etc. The problem with an art like this for the street...and this includes BJJ *by the way! is that none of these contemporary arts have been tested under real combat conditions. Some of the Combatives stuff was tested during the second world war by Fairbanes and company and by and large what they found was:

You fight the way you train. This includes if you go to a boxing gym and think when you enter a confrontation you will just be outpunching one or two guys...and it in includes the devestating Brazilian Jiu Jits guard which, while reducing even the most seasoned 200 plus thug to a quivelling mass...is guaranteed to get you a death by knife in the kidney...Fairbanes actually witnessed this in Vietnam, I am not making this up... and this story is about the stubborness of a bad fighting habit so listen closely! The Vietnamese would fight for honor and girls and nobody wanted to lose with the girls around, inevitably one guy would start to win, mount and pound away, the guy on the bottom would pull out a blade and stick it in the pounder's back. As Fairbanes put it it took about a minute to register as the winner got up to the accolodes of the crowd, turned away and died.

The problem with the sports systems is not that they cannot fight, the problem is that they build habits that will get you killed by someone who knows what they are doing. In the gym boxing you get belted in the mouth and some wise old salt like our own Ray Corso tells you to step left instead of right....your ignornce cost you a lump on your lip....On the street your ignorance will cost you your head gettng stomped while some inbreed yells "world star!" thats the world we live in.

I have taught self protection for over 30 years I know what I am talking about, I also have trained some guys for MMA BTW.

In answer to your question, its more the way your group trains than the art per se. But classical Ju Jutsu (my art) was used on the battlefields with weapons and it sometimes looks strange until you understand Why it developed the way it did. You cannot usually find people who appreciate this because most inbreeds really want to kick the **** out of people and grappling and boxing can teach one how to do this.
