Effective skill-building drills, if done properly, translate into stronger Krav Maga defenses.
Most students understandably have a fear of being punched. I notice this issue can be a harmful personal filter in their approach to training and self defense, so I developed the 10-step efficient defense drill as a means of develop a basic skill set around defending punches.
Keep in mind, this is a drill, and the goal is to develop confidence in students – specifically around defending punches (although the confidence will be more pervasive).
In the video below, I’m illustrating the drill and explaining the various movements contained in the drill. Enjoy!
Great drill and great self-defense application – thank you. Could you actually demonstrate the drill at each level, from dry (not as important), then with a partner – both with the 10 defenses and then the 3 defenses with the counter attacks?
Please demo the drill.
