Self Defense – Inside Defense Against a Straight Punch
How to do an inside defense against a straight punch in Krav Maga
This video will go into detail on how to do an inside defense against a straight punch in Krav Maga.
This variant of the inside defense is covered in most basic Krav Maga courses and is performed from a half passive stance.
The body defense (stepping out of the line of the attack) is very important.
There are variants of the straight punch in which the hand defense is performed with the palm. This method is good to start with for beginners. When using your entire forearm to deflect the attack there’s a smaller chance you miss as opposed to using only the palm of your hand.
Counterattacking is a very important aspect in eliminating the attacker. This video show’s multiple counterattacks to the head but you can use your imagination on this part.
Finally scanning your surroundings is crucial. If it’s clear, run home.
