CKM article hand2hand4 3 Important Self­ Defense Survival Techniques

At Commando Krav Maga, you’ll learn these 3 important self­ defense survival techniques in a structured, progressive manner. Each type of situation will have the same concepts, techniques, and guidelines applied, so that the unpredictable can be made predictable, and you will survive.

Important Technique #1 ‐ Engage/Disengage!

In a street fight there are no rules or referee stoppages. Staying engaged with your attacker and trying to punish them can be fatal. At any time the attacker can pull out a concealed weapon or their friends could jump in. This is why one of the key concepts in CKM is to disengage whenever you can, but if you have no choice, immediately engage to create as much damage as quickly as possible then disengage to safety.

Important Technique #2 ‐ Maximum Damage/Minimum Time!

Further building on the concept of Engage/Disengage, CKM tactics and techniques are designed to inflict the maximum amount of damage in the minimum amount of time during a life‐threatening confrontation. You are trained to debilitate the attacker with devastating street tactics that will ensure your survival.

Important Technique #3 ‐ 5 Seconds Rule!

In CKM, you are taught Ground Survival rather than Ground Fighting. No matter how superior your grappling skills, staying on the ground during a street confrontation can be fatal. Unlike an MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) ring, the streets are unpredictable. Your attacker can suddenly pull out a knife or his friends may jump in. In CKM, you are trained to get up in 5 seconds or less from any devastating ground attacks including ground and pound, submissions or lethal weapons. Once you’re up, the goal is to disengage to safety rather than trying to punish the attacker.
