Krav Maga - How To Get Back Up From The Ground

This page looks at how Krav Maga students are taught to get back up from the ground. Martial artists practice this self-defense technique in order to simulate being knocked to the ground and quickly getting back up. This puts the martial artist in a better position to escape or defend themselves.

This training technique is often combined with ground-based grappling escapes & counters, escapes from ground-based leg grabs, kicks from the ground, etc.

Students should only practice these martial arts kicking techniques under the supervision of a trained martial arts instructor. For more techniques, please visit the main Krav Maga Techniques section.

Instructions

  • If you have been knocked to the ground and are unable to get back up safely (because you are under pressure from an attacker), stay on your back with your feet pointed towards the attacker. This will allow you to deliver kicks as the attacker tries to assault you.
  • Pivot on the floor (while on your back) in order to keep your feet pointed towards the attacker (in case the attacker circles around you looking for an opening for a strike).
  • In this position, one leg should be chambered for kicks and other leg braced on the floor as a base.
  • Kicks that can be used while in this position include ground-based round kicks, ground-based front kicks and ground-based side kicks.
  • Post the “base” foot close to hip with same-side hand extended for protection.
  • Chamber other foot to kick at the assailant’s knee, shin or face if assailant moves too close. A successful kick against the attacker could provide room in order to get-up.
  • Post other hand on floor close to other hip.
  • Lift hips off floor to give room for striking foot to swing through and to prepare for getting up.
  • Lift rear hand off floor and rise to fighting stance.
  • Get up quickly in order to avoid an attack during this transition phase.
  • Keep lead hand up throughout in order to protect against the attacker's strikes.
