CQB Workshop with Ron Engelman

Fighting in Close Quarters Workshop

With KMDI Chief Instructor Ron Engelman

This workshop will cover what to do in the event that you are confronted by an attacker in a confined area with limited options for escape. The difference between fighting in the ring and fighting on the street is that the attacker is not necessarily looking for an even match or a challenge. They will use anything at their disposal to their advantage and knives, sticks broken, broken bottles and glasses are readily available.

This workshop will be focused on training in confined spaces and crowded areas, with a few weapons, grabs and holds thrown in for good measure.

Taught by the Krav Maga Defence Institute instructor team led by Chief Instructor Ron Engelman.
