Unarmed Defense Against Bayonet, Club, Baseball Bat, etc. (Angle 2) - US Army Modern Combatives

This page focuses on unarmed defenses against a bayonet (which also can be used against clubs and baseball bats). These self-defense techniques are used in US Army Modern Combatives training. The Combatives program teaches martial arts techniques to US Army soldiers. However, be aware that unarmed combat against weapons (such as 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 unarmed techniques against weapons, please visit the main Self Defense Against Weapons section.

Unarmed Defense Against No. 2 Angle of Attack

  • The attacker makes a diagonal slash along the No. 2 angle of attack (Step 1).
  • Again, the defender waits until he is sure of the attack before moving. The defender then moves to the outside of the attacker and counterattacks with a thumb jab into the right armpit (Step 2).
  • He receives the momentum of the attacking weapon and controls it with his free hand. He uses the attacker’s momentum against him by pulling the weapon in the direction it is going with one hand and pushing with his thumb of the other hand (Step 3).
  • The attacker is completely off balance, and the defender can gain control of the weapon.
