Krav Maga Self Defense Against Knife Attack

Krav Maga and Knife Defense 

Krav Maga emphasis on defense techniques against an attacker with a knife or with any sharp object like razors, broken bottles and scissors.
It is necessary to know types of knife attack, So that you identify the type of attack and defense technique required to cope with this.
The moment you notice an attacker is coming towards you, there might be 4 different distances.

1.Very close distance,you can only defense yourself if you are lucky.

2.Close range, a hand defense may be sufficient.You can protect yourself effectively.

3.Middle distance, hand defense is sufficient along with a counterattack to make the attacker less harmful.

4.Long distance, You can deliver a kick before he reach you.

Do not face an attacker holding a knife,stay at safe side.Maintain a considerable distance to overcome any risk.You can also take advantage of any object near you (Chair /stick ),you can also throw a stone and beat your oppose.

If you have enough time observe how the attacker is holding knife, this will give you clue what kind of attack he is going to apply and what prevention you should follow for your defense.

We must be clear that leg is stronger than arm. Therefore in most cases it is better to defend with kicks and maintain reasonable distance to convey a hard effect.Proper distance is used as a safety margin that enables you to attack vulnerable part of an attacker.

When using a hand defense again a knife attack, it is strongly recommended to counter attack with high speed and power.Counter attack prevents further attacks by the opposite side.

Krav Maga is a simultaneous combination of defense and counter attack.
There are still situations in which it is difficult to attack,you may perhaps block an attack and defend yourself.It is extremely important to keep your vision enlarge and avail the first opportunity. Judge the time accurately to knock him over.

While training one should use a soft rubber knife initially until you have gained necessary experience against high speed and powerful attacks.Only then use a wood or plastic knife, Sharp knife can only be used in advanced stage taking into account all the necessary safety measures.
