The BEST way to defend a punch – VIDEO!

Ever wonder what the best way was to defend against a punch in a street fight? Well if so, this is your lucky day!

In this weeks video, we go over one of the most common attacks, the straight punch.  The goal is to get your hands up in front of your face and redirect the punch offline, instead of trying to stop or block the incoming attack.  Once the punch has been redirected, proceed to throw counter strikes until the attacker is no longer a threat.  Then go home safe!

The scenario that I teach in the video assumes a very good state of readiness, thus allowing us to throw a simultaneous counter attack to the body while the punch is coming at you.  If you are a bit later, or less ‘ready’, you may have to forgo the initial strike, and just clear the hand and punch to the face after the redirection.  As usual, the more aware that you are, the more ready you will be to defend anything that comes at you.

Ok, that’s all for now.  Enjoy the video, and of course, do some Krav Maga today!
