Use the Clock Face to Optimize Your Straight Stab Defense

While some might joke that a straight stab defense would be better served by a Glock than a clock, it’s the use of the numbers on the clock that help to clarify how to effectively complete a straight stab defense.

In the video below, I’ve laid out Krav Maga’s procedure for dealing with a straight stab attack. By thinking of your centerline as the 12 o’clock position, you can orient your defense around the 12, 1 and 2 o’clock positions – not necessarily in that order. Check out the video and train smart!
