UNDERSTANDING COMBAT MINDSET AND MENTAL CONDITIONING

By Eyal Yanilov and Ole BoeMental conditioning

It’s easy to be happy when you are healthy and successful. But how about when you are in trouble? How would you behave? How would you deal with disappointment, failure and defeat?

While we, the writers, originally came from the worlds of martial arts, training of Governmental units and Special Forces and specialize in how to deal with conflicts, violence and combat, and except our academic backgrounds, like you, we live in a world where most confrontations aren’t violent or physical.

Every confrontation has mental components and we have lots of these small and stressful non-physical conflicts every day and probably multiple times throughout the day. From those minor & annoying ones like the mother in-law who invited the family to dinner or the neighbor blocking in our car to the boss who is extra difficult & gives us last minute assignments. This except the hundreds of small tasks that are saturating (thus stressing) us daily, like emails, text messages, Facebook, phone calls, meetings

Active shooter defense – blog from the Krav Maga world

Anyone who has done Krav Maga, even for just a short while, have realized that we are vulnerable to violent attacks from bad people if we are not vigilant and alert to our surroundings. Bad people want something we have; our resources, such as money and valuables, or our life, and we may want to stop that from happening. This knowledge is perhaps one of the biggest reasons for anyone to start doing Krav Maga. Based on this realization, we train our body to become stronger and familiar with movements, and we train our mind to function under stress and make the right decisions. We do this in a dynamic environment against an empty-handed or armed assailant, with returning attackers, multiple attackers, in the dark, in a crowd, getting to safety, etc.

The Importance and Meaning of the Combat and Fighting Instructor Course
 

Combat & Fighting instructor course – Blog by Eyal Yanilov

Regarding Combat and Fighting, when you look at the basics of the self-defense section of KMG, we always start by teaching a technique. From there we continue with understanding principles and creating variations that deal with similar but different attacks and problems. This is followed by adding pre-fight and post-fight concepts and possibilities, training under stress, practicing during simulations under different conditions and more.

Knife Attacks and defenses by Dr. Tal Kvores – Part 2
 

Knife Attacks – part 2

Response of the “victim”

The response and knife defenses of the victim depends on the skills, level of awareness and preparation, as well as the situation (to mention that additional visualization techniques are very useful to prepare ourselves to possible / multiple scenarios). The response can vary from panic to strong opposition, but again it depends on the elements mentioned above. One of the most common reactions is freezing or “running for our lives” (the latter one can be actually lifesaving). Therefore, one of the major goals of training is to teach our KMG trainees, instructors and students to recognize and respond … Freezing is NOT an OPTION.

Knife attacks – Part 1

by Dr. Tal Kvores Expert level 4 KMG Global Team of Instructors

Preface

The knife is probably the most commonly used weapon in violent and non – military confrontations. It is not surprising due to its availability and ease to purchase … Knives are commonly present in every home, office and shop. Another factor that makes knives a weapon of choice for many is the ease to carry and hide it, limited punishment for carrying compared to other weapons and ease of use (basically no real training necessary in order to be able to operate it or use it against someone, especially if the attacker is ready to die in the process).
