    Knife Defenses in Pure Krav Maga – Proposal to retrieve proper Military, law Enforcement and Civilian Life saving Skills/Boaz Aviram, Pure Krav Maga Founder
    Instead showing techniques from the "Bible" and blaming students for not being able to master them fast enough, and to tell them they need years of training for mastery, if you want to provide students with significant help of how to defend themselves you need to show them first how humans can use their bodies and weapons to maximum reach, force, speed. These amount to being more efficient in controlling your fate. You must also teach the invisible forces so called of awareness, timing, feinting, its consequences and cure.
    Once this is achieved, students get the idea of how to attempt to do it and how to attempt to defend it and what to expect.
    Now you would teach the best approach to handle each angle and methods of knife attack.
    When using a handy object which could also be the same weapon the opponent has there are four approaches usually to one side which is in front of the opponent. The preference of that is perhaps the ease of reach to pressure points to end the confrontation swiftly with strive to one kill shot as a counter.
    For Using your boots vs. knife you learn four tactics using kicks: front side, roundhouse and Scissors Kick. These kicks provide with best tactical approach within the kicking range. They can be used preemptively, or when an opponent did not execute a committed attack and is jumping backward after the initial attempt that may have been deflected or may have been an out of reach feint.
    For bare hands vs. Knife, there are four of these in pure krav maga with slight finishing variation depending if you have the luxury to end behind the opponent's back, or end in front of him.
    There is also another curriculum drill to deal with opponent that uses his front foot or hand for distraction with a kick, punch or continuous slapping so he can use his cross hand to stab you with no interruption. Here you learn to prioritize as well.
    Pure Krav Maga Four Knife Tactics are proofed to prevent repeated attack of any sort. These characteristics lie in few components considering reaction time, physical reach and control methods in which a strike provides the most effective control as it distracts the opponent, break his plans momentarily or permanently.
    Students do tend to get confused from the mass details required to memorize to ensure success. So be patient and keep in mind that you can always go back and rehearse prior training drills if forgotten. The key is now to aspire to have the students mind and body being able to retrieve their knowledge and use their judgments within an instant. Therefore, what is called intuitive drills such as "sparring" where students in the attacker role keeps changing his position and knife hold prior to entry into the hot zone. In such a fashion, instructors should supervise that all critical forms of approach that can contribute for such purpose had been drilled sufficiently.

    Other knife threat scenarios could be couples with the grappling chapter or could be rehearsed with the knife chapter as well. The reason is that they are more in the grappling range. Knife on the throat from the front or back are the major threats, and aside from that sparring drills on the ground could be added where students need to prioritize between controlling the knife and attacking soft pressure points. The reason why this area is not stressed in civilian environment and should not even be stressed in Military environment, is because you are talking about Pure Stupidity of allowing the fight to escalate that far. But if you have extra time on your hands you can drill them as well.
    The military does not use disciplined marching for his combat tactics, and therefore there is no merit for line up calisthenics and stand up demos instead of unarmed combat training methods.

    When you think about self defense training system, sure it can be used as a tool for awareness and quick fix to a potential victim using the natural instincts of survivals coupled with logic. That natural instinct to live and realization of what can cause one injury or another is partly innate and partly taught.
    The mindset of an attacker is not the mindset of a fighting sports athlete, although if he had the training in one of the competitive fighting sports, he would have a quicker reaction to changes in the unfolding scenarios.
    In a modern world people are reluctant to get daily Spartan training, and the whole idea about self defense is to be used to protect physically weaker individuals…
    However, as much as the lesser priority and interest in fighting sports, and more of self defense, but at the same time maintaining a balanced career and family life, keep in mind that just fitness or just fighting sports are not going to cut it.
    At the same time keep in mind that dry techniques are a small part of the training in any case. You need to practice to apply them or similar motions and tactics to resolve unfolding scenarios. You basically need to create few scenarios where to test your confidence and skills.
    If your time is limited, these scenarios and their complexities must we chosen very carefully to provide maximum learning and coverage of all the material learned which is the essence of self defense. Same as in boxing, just learning how to punch and having few bag drills is not going to make you a boxer.
    Learning few releases from holds, chokes, or few strikes and natural blocks, might enhance your reflexes, but will not make you self-defense proof. You need to learn to see and feel the whole picture.
    So even if your training course is short and amounts to few weeks or training or few seminars, you need to consider drills that force you to utilize the principles you are using in your techniques and not the techniques you learned. The principles are efficiency throughout by paying attention to the sequences of chain of defense.

    When you are out of the hotzone you can keep your arms down. When you are in the hotzone, even if your arms are up they can never protect all your body parts and any hit to any good enough pressure point(depending if your fist is gloved or not)will cause enough distraction to get to a better pressure point.
    Therefore even if you get punched in the chin and it is tucked, it will cause enough distraction with opportunity to the opponent to keep hitting you. When you are already in the hotzone you do not have enough time to block a hit to your open areas and if you wrap your arms around altogether you lose your peripheral vision but still open to attacks in all other area which will distract you enough to drop your arms and get hit in the head and neck as well. So what is the lessons needed to be learned?
    Everything can be determined few split seconds before you enter the hotzone and you are lifting your arms incidentally en route using them for attack or defense – before you enter the hotzone! Of course if the strikes are not powerful enough and your tactics suck, then opponents could recuperate and it would have been good if you tucked your chin and you can exchange blows until one of you falls and bla bla blah…
