Instructions for Krav Maga Defenses Against A Knife Downward Stab

This page provides details for Krav Maga defenses against a knife downward stab (also known as an ice pick stab). This self-defense scenario focuses on defending against an attacker armed with a knife who has raised his arm above his head and is stabbing the knife down towards your head or body. In Krav Maga, this defense often uses a Krav Maga 360 defense.

However, be aware that unarmed combat against guns or knives is very dangerous and should only be used as a last resort. Consider other options first (i.e. run away from danger).

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