    Krav Maga - Punch Defenses and Knife Defenses

    I was teaching punch defenses in a Krav Maga class recently, when a guest, who trains in Muay Thai, asked why we don’t simply “cover” or “shell up” against punches. It was an excellent question.

And many Krav Maga schools market themselves as “reality based self defense” schools and either avoid fight training or lower their standards for fight skills to the point of non-existence. Well, I don’t care how a school markets itself. Ultimately, that is between the school owner and the prospective buyer. However, fight training must be part of any good self defense program, including Krav Maga. Every self defense situation becomes the ....
