Self defense is often about lines and paths and the choices you make therein.
It is critical to understand how and why combatives work, and there are several ways to define each combative.
However, there is a good argument to be made that the best way to define a combative is to describe (1) the striking surface, and (2) the path the combative takes to the target.
In doing this exercise, it’s my hope that each Kravist will be better prepared to utilize the combative most appropriate for self-defense. In the video below, I outline the issues. Enjoy! And…walk in peace.
