Both of these disciplines can protect the individual from a dangerous situation which they may face at anytime, anywhere. These martial arts/defense systems can protect the individual from an attacker or multiple attackers, even if the attackers have weapons. There is a discussion raised about reality-based self-defense training in modern times among martial art followers and those who love to practice self-defense concepts. Personally, I believe both these disciplines are reality-based self-defense systems. The availability of no-nonsense with practical techniques has made both really reality-based self-defense.
This article is not to compare the origins and philosophies of Jeet Kune Do and Krav Maga, since these have been developed by the experts through their experience and trust proven for decades. The discussion of philosophies requires more and more research. But the article discusses the concepts that they use in a really bad situation.
What does a Jeet Kune Do (JKD) follower do in fighting?
By using forms or a set of techniques, a JKD fighter can make the opponent do a particular movement. The opponent can be confused at any time by a well-practiced JKD person. They use feints to induce the required movement by the opponent.
What a Krav Maga (KM) person does in a fight is?
The person who follows KM has trained to do a quick counter-attack and escape from danger immediately. The training received in the class to manage the emotional part, body language and communication skills will also be useful to support a surprise attack on the opponent.
In a dangerous situation, how does Jeet Kune Do act?
As a modern martial art, JKD does not have any routine or rules, since the mindset of the practitioner is open to defeat and survival by others. The training is suitable for the practical danger we may face in the street.
The individual naturally does the block and counterattack simultaneously from his training. This concept can make the practitioner extremely fast, explosive movements. Finally, a surprising counter-attack to the opponent with a quick knockout.
How does KM react in a dangerous situation?
KM is based on the reality of street fights or the best answer to the reality faced by the officers of defense forces. Now KM is popular all over the world as a better option to the violence reported in many countries.
With the training of self-defense techniques, knife attacks, stick fighting, and also disarming of firearms, the practitioners are well trained to act efficiently in a minimum amount of time, with maximum damage to the attacker, and to ensure maximum defense.
JKD person is trained to defeat the opponent and win the fight, but a KM person is focused on protecting himself and escape from danger as quickly as possible.
If you have more experience in Jeet Kune Do and Krav Maga, please comment on the fight-avoidance techniques and self-defense concepts identical to both systems.
