IDF Trains Soldiers to Defend Against Knife Attacks

In recent weeks, the IDF Central Command Training Center has launched a new crash course to teach soldiers how to fend off terrorists.

Soldiers participate in Krav Maga workshops that provide them with advanced skills in self-defense.

During the course, soldiers take part in simulations testing their ability to stop stabbings as well as attempted abductions.

Computers measure how each soldier responds and record each delayed reaction. The soldiers are able to see their mistakes and learn how not to repeat them.

In one session, soldiers have to decide how to respond when rioters block traffic and terrorists who fire at them are hiding inside the mob.
