Instructions for a Defense Against A Knee Strike - Krav Maga Technique

This page provides details for a Krav Maga defense against a knee strike. This is a self-defense technique that can be used when an attacker is holding you (i.e. Muay Thai Clinch) and is attempting to hit you with knee strikes.

For more techniques, please visit the main Krav Maga Techniques section.

Written Instructions for Technique

  • Krav Maga students practice blocking the attacker's thigh with their forearms (versus their hands).
  • Moreover, they quickly launch counter attacks (i.e. to the attacker's groin) in order to break free and get out of the range of the knee strikes.
