Krav Maga and Knives
It’s one thing to defend yourself against a physical attack, but quite another to fend off somebody with a knife. Fortunately, Krav Maga is a self-defence system that teaches you how to defend yourself in a variety of situations. This self-defence system emphasizes the fact that avoidance is always the best policy. That’s why it stresses the importance of avoiding the attacker as much as possible. When faced with a knife, the best thing to do is get away from the problem. There is no shame in running from a knife! only a fool would deliberately choose to close in on a knife wielding attacker if the option to run away had presented itself. However, running away is not always an option and defending yourself from the threat becomes the number one priority. Learning knife self- defence techniques could save your life from a committed attacker. There are a number of solutions within the curriculum that can help you when faced with the problem of knife attacks. At Kravology we can show you the awareness and skills required to help you. A knife attack isn’t a choreographed dance it’s an attack that’s brutal in nature. The training should be realistic in its approach to the defence and gradually built up to full intensity and speed. Additional protective equipment can be worn to increase the realism. All angles of attack should be trained and the techniques tested.
