These 3 Top Self­ Defense Survival Techniques will give you an advantage in any encounter that you may find yourself in. They are part of what Commando Krav Maga instills in each student.

Technique 1 ‐ The What‐Ifs!

In order to train realistically, you need to implement the what‐if mindset by putting yourself in the attacker’s shoes. As the street is unpredictable, you need to consider the different variables. “What if the attacker is bigger, stronger or faster?” “What if the attacker moves from one attack to another?” “What if the attacker’s friends jump in to help him?” “What if the attacker is carrying a concealed weapon?” By internalizing the CKM what‐if mentality, you will develop the proper mindset to always prepare for the worst!

Technique 2 ‐ Adaptation!

In Commando Krav Maga, you are trained to adapt quickly to the changing environment under the most realistic scenarios. After perfecting your tactics and techniques through progressive practice, you must test yourself under the most stressful and dynamic conditions. One of the best methods of developing effective instinctive reaction is implementing CKM surprise attacks into your training.

Technique 3 ‐ Simplicity is Genius!

Any technique that requires more than two gross motor skills is extremely difficult to perform under stress. In Commando Krav Maga, most of the tactics were designed to be simple and universal so that you don’t have to think about the move under stress. They work regardless of the direction of the attack or size of the attacker.

Although the tactics and techniques in CKM are simple to perform, it took many years of research and field testing to refine and evolve CKM to where it is today. Think of a clock: simple on the face but when you look inside, you will see how many detailed and intricate parts it takes to make the clock move. This is symbolic of the ingenuity behind CKM, simple and highly technical, yet straight forward tactics.
