Krav Maga option 2 for a rifle attack

This is a simple but very effective technique you can learn easily.

  1. Make sure to keep your hands up
  2. Quickly push the rifle out of your range
  3. Step in making sure you control the rifle’s movement
  4. Knee the groin
  5. Remove the weapon
  6. Make sure you reduce him and be ready for any other attack because he might still try to do something

Remember in real-life situations there is no room for error, that is why when you train do it consciously, do your very best. There are no second chances once you are in the street, you won’t tell your attacker “can you hit me again, this one did not work”, he will attack you full force and will not have mercy.  Yes, that is how is on the street.


  1. Never attempt to take away the weapon without basic proper training
  2. If you are in a real situation do not try to be a hero if you are not 100% certain your training will help you complete the technique
