CLOSE QUARTERS, KRAV MAGA STYLE
Hey there! Matt Numrich here again.
Since the 1990’s, the Ultimate Fighting Championships (UFC’s) and many “military” styles have underlined the fact that close quarters combat, can give any person an edge in self-defense. Krav Maga embraces it as well, and uses two specific moves to control an opponent and put them down quickly and easily, regardless of how strong your attacker is. I will get into some additional details in a video below, but I wanted to walk you through the basics here.
This is one of the most important moves in Krav Maga self-defense because many times the objective is to end up in this range to onslaught your opponent with several close quarter moves. Just like any other Krav move, this is a perfect move which will easily put you in control, while giving you the opportunity to inflict enough defensive pain to escape any dangerous situation.

Here are the two moves, explained over three steps:
- CLINCH THE NECK. The first thing to do is to clinch the back of the neck of the attacker using a “C grip” where your thumb is on one side, and other four fingers clamp down on the other side.
- GRAB THEIR ARM. Next thing to do is to hold the tricep of the attacker using the same C grip as explained above.
- STRIKE USING KNEES. Finally, deliver several powerful knee strikes hitting him to any open target, ranging from the thigh to the groin, or stomach to face.
There are lots of ways to throw this knee strike. You can also use both your knees by switching them. However, most of the time it is best to identify what knee is stronger or you are more comfortable, and place that one in the back, and strike with it.
