Krav Maga Alain Cohen

In this video excerpt from his 6-DVD set, Krav Maga Personal Protection, krav maga security expert Alain Cohen addresses the question: Is krav maga effective against kicks? Watch as he shows you several techniques for handling such a situation!

When Israeli officials want their soldiers to beef up their fighting skills, they send them to train in krav maga. For Israel's elite law-enforcement officers, soldiers and bodyguards, however, their training option of choice is krav maga security — a reality-based, close-quarters-combat system founded by Alain Cohen. Krav maga security is, of course, based on the Israeli martial art of krav maga. However, it takes the art in interesting directions — both mentally and physically — to make it especially appealing to security professionals. But is krav maga effective in situations involving kicks? In this exclusive krav maga video excerpt from his comprehensive six-DVD set Krav Maga Personal Protection: The Israeli Method of Close-Quarters Combat, Cohen presents options for handling a kick.

A hallmark of reality-based fighting is an emphasis on a smaller set of techniques, and krav maga security maintains that tradition. Alain Cohen believes that a "less is more" approach yields two benefits: 1. It prevents the freeze that can occur when a martial artist must choose just the krav maga technique from the hundreds (or even thousands) that he may know, and ... 2. It enables him to focus practice time on each of the fewer krav maga techniques.

Through using this "less is more" approach, Alain Cohen says that “the student can better assimilate the essential principles in less time.” Ideas such as this have evidently worked for Alain Cohen. His krav maga security training program is taught in the United States, France, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Poland, Denmark and Belgium in addition to Israel, where he’s based.
