Prioritising Safety in Dangerous Situations.

May 14, 2024

Avoidance is Key

The core of our training starts with Prevention & Avoidance. This means always being aware of your surroundings and, more importantly, knowing when to remove yourself from potential threats. Recognising danger early can be as crucial as any physical technique we teach, because the safest fight is the one you never have to engage in.

The Power of Voice

Using your voice effectively can be a powerful deterrent to attackers and a beacon of warning to others. Here’s what to do:

  • Be loud and clear: Shout specific warnings such as "knife," "stay back!," or "danger."
  • Point out the danger: While alerting others, point towards the attacker so everyone knows where the threat is coming from. This helps prevent confusion and directs attention appropriately.
  • Direct others: Use your voice not only to alert others but also to direct them towards safety. This might include shouting commands like "exit here" or "call the police."

Engaging Only When Necessary

At Total Krav Maga, we teach techniques specifically designed to counter armed attacks. These techniques are taught with the understanding that they are used solely as a last resort:

  • Distraction tactics: We train our members in how to distract an attacker if there are absolutely no other options available and the threat is imminent.
  • Control and neutralise: Techniques focus on how to control the attacker’s weapon-bearing limb and neutralise the threat quickly and efficiently.

Upcoming Knife Defence Tactics Seminar

Join us for a comprehensive knife defence tactics seminar led by Krav Maga Expert Level 4, Nick Maison. This seminar focuses on early-stage knife threats, offering strategies for compliance, prevention, and active defence.

Event Details:

During this three-hour seminar, you will:

  • Learn practical solutions to basic knife threats that occur early in the timeline of an attack.
  • Practice compliance methods to manage situations where fighting may not be necessary.
  • Engage in prevention techniques to avoid escalation.
  • Train in fighting solutions for when engagement becomes unavoidable.

Safety Gear Required:

Participants are advised to wear MMA style shorts, Krav Maga trousers, or leggings, and a sports T-shirt (no vests). It’s strongly advised that you bring mouth guards, MMA gloves, forearm guards, and a groin protector to ensure your safety during the training.

If you do not have the necessary gear, you can purchase it from our online shop at Krav Wear or from any retailer of your choice. Registering for the seminar entitles you to a discount code, which can be used at Krav Wear to help you get started with the right equipment.

Open to All:

This seminar welcomes participants of all skill levels, from beginners with no prior experience to seasoned martial artists. It is open to anyone aged 14 and up. Under 18s must have parental consent. With ample support and guidance from our experienced instructors and the camaraderie of fellow students, this seminar offers a supportive environment for learning and growth.

Whether you're just starting out or looking to enhance your existing skills with practical, real-world self-defence techniques, this seminar is an excellent opportunity. Join us to boost your confidence and ability to protect yourself and others in many situations.


Training at Total Krav Maga is about making smart decisions as much as it’s about physical defence. Our approach is grounded in real-world scenarios, focusing on staying safe through avoidance, making noise to protect yourself and others, and understanding when physical defence is the only option left.

We hope to see you at one of trial clases or events soon.
