How to Do a Krav Maga Single Finger Strike

Learn how to do a single finger strike from Krav Maga Master Instructor Rhon Mizrachi in this Howcast video.


From basic stand, we are teaching other punches. Other punches are alternatives to hitting with your knuckles. After all, in the street environment, you don't have to abide by any rules whatsoever as far as your fight. You've just got to get out of there. You should expect to fight somebody of a much larger size, therefore, if you can shut down his visual capability, it will open for you a lot more options in terms of what to do, whether to strike him where you can see him or simply to extract yourself out of that dangerous environment. In any case, we're starting with a single finger strike to the eyes with a left right punch. So, hands up, in a basic stand. From here, this strike is straightforward to touch the eye with a single index finger. My shoulder is going to come back. Just like a regular punch, there will be a push off of my right foot, the same way I'll throw a jab. Let's do five times slow, just left. Start with hands open. One. Slow. Two. Three. Four. Five.

Let's do the same thing with the right hand, but this time we're throwing it just like we're throwing a cross. A full shoulder comes in with a full pivot, maximum extension and protection of the face from the left hand. One. Again. One. One. One. One. One. Let's hit both hands. By the way, when you strike, you strike with both hands to one single eye. You don't need to target both eyes. Just shut one of them out. One. One. Quicker. One. One. One. One. One.
