Unarmed Defense Against Bayonet, Club, Baseball Bat, etc. (Angle 6) - 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. 6 Angle of Attack
- The attacker delivers a downward stroke along the No. 6 angle of attack.
- The defender shifts to the outside to get off the line of attack and he grabs the weapon (Step 1).
- The defender then pulls the attacker off balance by causing him to overextend himself (Step 2).
- The defender shifts his weight backward and causes the attacker to fall, as he strips the weapon from him (Step 3).
