Krav Maga is a self-defense system that emphasizes the neutralization of threats by deploying defensive and offensive maneuvers spontaneously. The self-defense techniques pretty much rely on instinctive moments. Here are some of the most common Krav Maga techniques that you can use to defend yourself against an attacker.

Krav Maga Kick from a Lying Position

It is possible that during a violent encounter, you may end up on the ground. Deploying kicks are best used when your opponent is outside the reach of upper-body combative moves (straight punch or hammer fist).
As you are lying on your back, lift your head and shoulders off the ground and keep your hands up to cover your face. One foot should be positioned on the ground near your buttocks. The other knee will then be drawn up, close to your chest with your foot flexed back. Make sure that only a small portion of your back and one foot are touching the ground. Stomp your kicking foot outward and engage your hips to draw force. Recoil immediately and bring your knee back to your chest for another kick.

Krav Maga Straight Punch

Krav Maga punch

The basic move is to extend your hand forward in a straight line from your shoulder to your opponent. Throwing a straight punch is the fastest and least detectable way to deploy the move.
Punch your target to whatever vulnerable target is open. Krav Maga is all about creating openings. For example, if the target’s hands are up and covering the face, throw your punches to the weak areas that are low. This will cause your target to drop his hands, allowing you to strike the face, chin or throat.

Krav Maga Heel Punch

To do the heel punch, drive with your legs and your core and send your right hand forward. Deploy the strike forward and push the ball of your back foot against the floor. Push off the floor to add more power to the punch.
As your hips and shoulders turn, extend your arm while keeping your elbow down facing the floor. Just before punching your attacker, bend your wrist backward, open your hand and make contact with the heel of your palm. You should avoid striking with your whole palm because the force of the punch will be weak as the force will disperse over a wider area.
