Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

In this week's Krav Maga video, KMW Lead Instructor, A.J. Draven teaches how to create a distraction using common objects in a fight. 

“If you are forced to defend yourself, it is necessary to gain any available advantage.  We must assume that the attacker will be bigger, stronger, and/or faster than us.  This means that any distraction that we can create will help us to level the playing field and to achieve our ultimate goal, which is to go home safe of course!

In this video, I demonstrate how to open up one of the most effective strikes in a street fight, the groin kick, by using a common object like a drink or a set of keys as a distraction.  Any object will work, just throw it at the attackers face in order to get him to flinch or raise his hands, and then the groin should be wide open for a kick. 

I hope you enjoy the video, let me know what you think!

Be safe, enjoy your Thanksgiving, and of course... Do some Krav Maga today!”
