Sunday afternoon we conducted a little seminar about Defending Knife Attack. Knife is the most common weapon use by aggressor in the street so it is important to know how to deal with such dangerous situation.
Krav Maga is not only about protecting yourself, it is also about protecting others. Here is simple and effective way of defending your friend against an aggressor.
Thursday evening, drill about defending attack with a stick combined with ground fighting. It is fun to learn how to defend yourself and meanwhile to get in a better physical shape!
Friday evening we celebrated KMG Japan 3rd anniversary with some of our most faithful students. Thank you to all the members who have been joining KMG Japan for the past 3 years. You are all part of this wonderful adventure.
We have many training drills in Krav Maga. In the video below I demonstrate an advanced drill where the attacker constantly feeds the defender with attacks of different types (here we do chokes or grabs, knife stabs and stick attacks) and the defender defends, counterattacks and reset. The attacks and defenses must be as realistic as possible in term of speed and power. The drill must be intense and last for about 3 to 5 minutes.
April 22nd Master Eyal Yanilov president and head instructor of Krav Maga Global was in Tokyo to conduct a great seminar. Eyal Yanilov is the highest ranked Krav Maga master in the world. See below the video of the seminar.
At the occasion of Eyal Yanilov's visit to Tokyo we met with the martial arts instructor team of Japan Self-Defense Force (Japanese army) to demonstrate KMG Krav Maga and exchange ideas. Very interesting moment! Thank you Japan SDF for inviting us in your great dojo!
Fighting Class last Thursday at Nakameguro. Fighting tactics against multiple aggressors and passing through a group of people to escape. Technical skill, tactical positioning, fitness and fighting spirit: That's Krav Maga!
Last Sunday we conducted a workshop in Tokyo on defenses against pistol threats. Beside practicing defenses from different situations and angles we also briefly address pistol mechanism and pistol manipulation. Thank you everyone to be part of this event!
Fighting on the ground is very common nowadays due to the popularity of Mixed Martial Arts and Brazilian Jujitsu, but in self-defense fighting on the ground is something to be avoided at all cost as we are much more vulnerable against multiple attackers or knife stab. This is why Krav Maga ground work training mainly focuses on defending Takedowns, and defending attacks while on the ground and immediately standing up.
