The idea of somebody jumping out at you with a knife is very scary. I asked my friend Matt, a highly qualified Krav Maga instructor, to demonstrate the traditional Krav Maga defense against a knife attack, along with the adaptation of that defense that he currently teaches, and to explain the reasons behind the adaptation.
PLEASE NOTE: This is a DEMONSTRATION, not a tutorial. As Matt explains, you can not properly learn a technique by watching a video. This is simply to give you an idea of what the defenses look like, and how they work. For more information on Matt, visit his training center website.
