Strengthening Your Grip

Posted by on Mar 11, 2017

The following article was penned by Peter Lakatos So you pair up with this guy, and you know it is going to hurt. The subject is pistol threat from the front, and every single time he takes your gun you feel like you are loosing a finger, and your wrist is starting to hurt. You ask him, what is his profession, and turns out he is a plumber, a carpenter, a car mechanic. No, it is never the office guy. Yep, I know the feeling. Today our life became very sedentary, we hardly ever need a strong grip, and shaking hands with man today is rather embarrassing feeling, my grandpa would not trust them with such soft holds. I would like to shortly discuss this issue in 5 topics: Terminology Safety Performance Health Solutions Open grip – you can grip on your thumb, example is rolling thunder / fat grip barbell, or in no gi holding the opponents wrist, or elbow area for cross-pull. Closed grip – this is the grip you use for closing a gripper, meaning it is a...

A man allegedly armed himself with a knife and attended a Bondi apartment following an earlier altercation near Bondi Beach. Around 1am (Sunday 31 January 2016), police attended a property on Campbell Parade following reports two men were involved in a fight. One of the men – a 31-year-old Italian national – was taken to St Vincent’s Hospital with facial injuries. The other man – 27-year-old from Brazil – was arrested and taken to Waverley Police Station. He was later released, pending further inquiries. It’s alleged that after discharging himself from hospital, the 31-year-old armed himself with a knife and attended an apartment on Old South Head Road, Bondi, shortly before 5am.

THE IMPORTANCE AND MEANING OF THE COMBAT AND FIGHTING INSTRUCTOR COURSE

THE IMPORTANCE AND MEANING OF THE COMBAT AND FIGHTING INSTRUCTOR COURSE

*Both Jerome Afrique and Steven Kratsas will be undergoing the next CFIC when it is conducted in Australia in January 2017.

By Eyal Yanilov

Regarding Combat and Fighting, when you look at the basics of the self-defense section of KMG, we always start by teaching a technique. From there we continue with understanding principles and creating variations that deal with similar but different attacks and problems. This is followed by adding pre-fight and post-fight concepts and possibilities, training under stress, practicing during simulations under different conditions and more.

While teaching KMG’s section of fighting and combat we take a different path, commonly we start from the principles. Understanding the families of tactics, techniques and training methods. Then manifest those in different techniques, trying to get outside the box as much as possible.

KNIFE ATTACKS AND DEFENSES BY DR. TAL KVORES – PART 2

Feb 1, 2016

The response and knife defenses of the victim depends on the skills, level of awareness and preparation, as well as the situation (to mention that additional visualization techniques are very useful to prepare ourselves to possible / multiple scenarios). The response can vary from panic to strong opposition, but again it depends on the elements mentioned above. One of the most common reactions is freezing or “running for our lives” (the latter one can be actually lifesaving). Therefore, one of the major goals of training is to teach our KMG trainees, instructors and students to recognize and respond … Freezing is NOT an OPTION.

The knife is probably the most commonly used weapon in violent and non – military confrontations. It is not surprising due to its availability and ease to purchase … Knives are commonly present in every home, office and shop. Another factor that makes knives a weapon of choice for many is the ease to carry and hide it, limited punishment for carrying compared to other weapons and ease of use (basically no real training necessary in order to be able to operate it or use it against someone, especially if the attacker is ready to die in the process).

Management Training with Krav Maga – Blog by Eyal Yanilov

Nov 4, 2015

A couple of decades ago (man….time is flying) I read an article which mentioned that in MBA degrees of some of the top universities they are using and teaching military tactics and using ancient books from the east (such as “Art of War” by Sun Tzu and “Book of Five Rings” by the Japanese Samurai, Musashi).

I thought to myself, whatever tactics they teach, whatever technique they talk about, I can demonstrate, instruct and let people feel it through the body. The theory is nice, but the practice will make it much clearer. The understanding through the body will make a big difference for any manager or director who wishes to progress and improve his own skills.

Focusing on the Mission in Krav Maga

Focusing on the Mission in Krav Maga

Nov 4, 2015

In Krav Maga classes, we regularly tell our students to “focus on the mission”. Not only because it sounds cool, or because it comes from Krav Maga’s history in the military, but because it is important for the student to focus on the outcome of the situation.

You need to focus on your final objective, and make decisions in the light of that objective, i.e. your mission. This mission is the overarching goal, and you need to make sure that decisions you make before, during and after the fight  are supporting your mission. Let’s say that your basic mission in self-defense is to keep yourself safe and return home to your family in one piece every evening. If this means running away, so be it. Mission 100% achieved. Staying after the initial self-defense situation and  “teaching him a lesson” can derail your mission.

Turn Your Pen, Keys or Bag into a Weapon — A Tool for Survival

 

In the last couple years Krav Maga has become popular in the world. This Israeli style has a deserved reputation of one of the most effective systems of close-quarter combat, defensive tactics, fighting skills and unarmed self-defence in the word. Information about this martial art is slowly becoming available for wide public – opened schools of Krav Maga in USA, UK Europe, Australia, and Even India. Krav Maga is seen in Hollywood on films such as the Bourne Ultimatum and in Video games such as GTA, and Splinter Cell. However even today rarely do people outside of Israel know, that Krav Maga also has a weapons division.
