Eye Strike – Krav Maga

Krav Maga Eye Strike Techniques

This page shows the fundamentals behind a Krav Maga eye strike. This technique is an effective self-defense weapon for close combat or you are trapped by a stronger opponent.

Many of these self-defense targets (i.e. groin or eyes) are illegal in martial arts sparring competitions. However, they are useful in self-defense situations (i.e. rape prevention). These attacks on vital areas should only be used in life or death situations as you can severely injure your opponent.

In order to reduce the potential for accidents, many martial arts schools practice eye strikes against the eyes of BOB (Body Opponent Bags) versus “live” students. Or they practice against students who are wearing large plastic face shields in order to protect the student’s eyes and face.
