9780804847650: Krav Maga Tactical Survival: Personal Safety in Action. Proven Solutions for Real Life Situations

Krav Maga Tactical Survival presents proven solutions to dangerous, real-life situations.

Krav Maga is the official self-defense system of the Israeli Defense Forces and has been battle-tested by police, armed forces, private security personnel and security-minded individuals around the globe for 60 years. Krav Maga teaches you how to quickly size up a dangerous situation and neutralize your attackers before they gain the upper hand.

This martial arts book is full of examples of real-world life-threatening situations, and in each case the clear, step-by-step photographs and text illustrate an effective solution—showing you how to disrupt your attacker's strategy, disarm them, damage or destroy their ability to harm you, and disengage quickly so you can move to a more secure location.

Krav Maga Tactical Survival covers the following essential techniques:

  • Upper Body Combatives (hammer-fist strikes, hook punches, head-butts, front kicks and more)
  • De-escalation techniques
  • Spoiling knife and firearm draws
  • Neutralizing knife and firearm attacks
  • Dealing with unarmed attacks (clothing grabs, chokes and bear hugs)
  • Executing pick-ups and throws

From the Author:

This is the 2nd Book on Krav Maga that I've written. The first ("Krav Maga - Real World Solutions to Real World Violence") looked primarily at assaults, committed by predatory individuals, who orchestrated or planned their attacks, such as muggers, and robbers etc. The second (this book), looks more at social violence; spontaneous assaults involving individuals,who have had "injustices" committed against them, such as having a drink spilt over them etc. the book looks not only at physical responses to these types of conflict, but also how to de-escalate and deflect them - which involves a lot more than apologizing, and speaking calmly etc. In fact doing this may make things worse. This makes it a great companion to the first book, as well as one that can stand alone by itself.

Part of the approach of the book, is to show that different solutions, can be used against a similar attack, based on situational components e.g. in some cases it may be better to disengage than disarm a weapon etc. Rather than suggest that there is only one tactic/method to use against a particular attack, the book shows different responses that may be more relevant and effective based on what is actually happening i.e. the situation determines the solution.

Once again all of the photographs are in full color, and were shot at full speed, in the locations where violence occurs. What makes Krav Maga and Self-Defense effective is understanding the context in which violent altercations take place, and this is what the book tries to achieve.

About the Author:

Gershon Ben Keren is a 5th Degree Black Belt (and Head of System for Krav Maga Yashir), who has been training in Krav Maga since 1994, in both Israel and Europe. He has trained with some of the Israeli Defense Forces most respected and experienced instructors, and in 2011 he was inducted into the Museum of Israeli Martial Art by Dr. Dennis Hanover, in Herzliya, Israel.

Having worked in the security sector, as an operative, trainer and consultant, his emphasis is on violence mitigation, prediction, and avoidance. His real world experiences, coupled with his academic background in psychology, informs the reality-based self-defense training that he provides to individuals, corporations, and agencies. He lives in Boston, where he runs his full time school, and corporate services, as well as free women's self-defense/self-protection training, in-person and online (including the weekly Krav Maga Blog), through Krav Maga Yashir Boston.
