Self-Defense - Multiple Opponents Drill

This self-defense section focuses on training in order to handle multiple opponents (i.e. being attacked by a drunk and his buddies in the bar, being mugged by a group of teens, etc.).

The video below focuses on a training exercise by Krav Maga expert and former police officer, Branimir Tudjan. This drill works best in a group of three or more, and is an exercise in continuous body movement.

It’s a good idea to watch the clip all the way through first to get the reasoning behind the drill, and also to hear the context and safety precautions for the strikes if you’re a newbie.

The Strikes

Photo Timecode Strike Target Areas
#1 [0min 23sec] GROIN SLAP groin, use non-telegraphed pendulum motion
#2 [2min 26sec] CLOTHESLINE throat, or to capture the head
#3 [2min 51sec] HAMMER STRIKE occiput, jawline, temples
#4 [3min 18sec] KNEE STRIKE groin, spine, thighs
#5 [4min 21sec] ELBOW STRIKE throat, breastbone
#6 [4min 04sec] GROIN KICK groin, shins
#7 [5min 18sec] HEAD BUTT chin, jaw, jawline
#8 HEEL STOMP knees (sides or back), shins, or top of feet
#9 FINGER JAB eyes or throat

The first 6 minutes covers 7 basic strikes that work well in a sudden or melee type of situation. We call these types of moves, one-hit-wonders because they’re straight forward fight-stoppers. Also, you don’t need years of advanced training to use them.
