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.
Tuesday evening is fighting class at Yokohama. Today we practiced technics for fighting multiple opponents and group fighting.
On Monday we just moved to our new studio at Nakameguro: Akimoto Studio.
The place is nice and located only at 5 minutes walking distance from Nakameguro station.
The great plus is that we have mats there! So we are going to do more rolls and break falls and more ground work. check the address on our contact page. We are looking forward to seeing you there.
Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th KMG Japan organized 2 awesome seminars in Tokyo. Those seminars were conducted by KMG Krav Maga expert Edwin Peng. Edwin is a specialist in VIP Protection and Military Krav Maga. A great weekend with 2 great groups of participants. Thank you everyone for taking part in this event!
Check our video about the Third Party Protection and Military Seminar in Tokyo!
This year for the first time KMG organized a VIP Protection Instructor Course in Bangkok. The course is meant to qualify KMG Krav Maga self-defense instructors for teaching Krav Maga for VIP Protection (also known as Third Party Protection). The course is 10 days of intensive training including combat shooting.
Krav Maga for self-defense and Krav Maga for third party protection have different logics: In self-defense the goal is to protect yourself. In Third party protection the goal is to protect someone else even if you have to put yourself in danger to do so.
One of the principle of Krav Maga is to be able to attack and defend from all position in all situation. In this video I demonstrate a situation where we need to defend against a knife stab while standing up.
