When learning how to defend yourself, one of the most dangerous scenarios you can train for is defense against multiple attackers. The Krav Maga techniques that we drill are well-suited for this dynamic tactical threat. If you’re in a fight against multiple attackers, there are a few things to keep in mind that can minimize your risk of personal harm.

Don’t Get In A Fight With Multiple Attackers

The easiest way to survive a life-threatening situation is to avoid it altogether. De-escalate if you can. Run away if you must. The bottom line is that you want out of this situation if at all possible. The odds are heavily stacked against you.

If It Can’t Be Avoided, Remember Krav Maga’s Principles

If you’ve spent any time learning how to defend yourself using Krav Maga, you undoubtedly know that this discipline uses fast, brutal techniques. Get in range, strike hard, get out of range, and always look for an escape.

Use A Force Multiplier

If you have the opportunity to grab a weapon, do so. Pool cues, loose boards, bricks, and billiard balls can all be used to maximize the brutality of your attack. Just remember that once a fight moves from hands to weapons, it’s weapons the rest of the way.

Control Your Position

When using Krav Maga against multiple attackers, keep your feet moving and mobile. Don’t get drawn into the center of a circle of attackers, stay toward the outside, and try to eliminate their angles by moving yourself to place one of them in front of another. If you can stack them, you reduce the number of aggressors you’re effectively fighting at once.

Stay On Your Feet

If you become a grounded, immobile target, their attacks become much easier and more devastating.

Don’t Get In A Fight With Multiple Attackers

Seriously, don’t.
