Hello! In this article I’m going to give you some advices in order to survive from a gun threat from the rear and what to do to improve your Krav Maga techniques.

The attacker comes from the rear so I can’t see really the gun.

Let’s see step by step how to do:

  1. Check the gun with your eyes: it is important to see what kind of gun is and if it is a real gun or a rolled up magazine or maybe the gun is in the other hand. Moreover, it is important to see in which hand is to gun in order to continue with the technique.
  2. Turn yourself deeply on the other side of the gun: if the gun is in the right hand of the attacker you have to move on your left side. With your left arm push away the gun in order to take your body out of the fire line and with your right fist you have to hit the attacker.
  3. You have to block the arm with the gun of the attacker: wrap your left arm up bringing tightly your hand to your chest. Then you can hit his neck with your right arm, knee on the groin, hammerfist on the back and you can brake the neck or take the gun.
  4. How can you take the gun? The way the attacker will release the gun is very easy! With your right hand grab the gun and turn it to the attacker forearm, so to brake his finger, and now that his finger is broken you have to push away the gun and strike him with your elbow.

Now I would like to give you some tips to improve your Krav Maga technique:

  • At the beginning (point 1) you have to “play” with your attacker: as he puts the gun against your back you have to push pressure with your back on the gun. In this way the attacker will push the gun against your back too and this will facilitate you during your spin movement because he will go forward as you will move out from the fire line.
  • The “play” with your body will help you to have a faster spin movement.
