Unarmed Defense Against Bayonet, Club, Baseball Bat, etc. (Angle 5) - 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 Low No. 5 Angle of Attack

  • The attacker thrusts the bayonet at the stomach of the defender (Step 1).
  • The defender shifts his body to the side to avoid the attack and to gouge the eyes of the attacker (Step 2).
  • The defender’s free hand maintains control of and strips the weapon from the attacker as he is driven backward with the eye gouge (Step 3).

Unarmed Defense Against High No. 5 Angle of Attack

  • The attacker delivers a thrust to the throat of the defender (Step 1).
  • The defender then shifts to the side to avoid the attack, parries the thrust, and controls the weapon with his trail hand (Step 2).
  • The defender then shifts his entire body mass forward over the lead foot, slamming a forearm strike into the attacker’s throat (Step 3).
