Monday night@Krav Maga Edinburgh
Last night we worked on survival on the ground with an opponent trying frantically to stab you. We were looking to develop you survival instincts without the need for set techniques. We then added in a technique for bringing the attacker who was in your guard closer to you so we could use our close range tools to destroy them. Its difficult to punch from your back with any success when someone is reigning blows down on you. You just have to watch the UFC as an example. We also looked at escaping from this position. We then worked in low lights conditions relying a great deal on tactile sensitivity. The night finished off with some people sparring, slow fighting, pad work or what we had covered in class.
