Having taught KravMaga for many years and especially short-term courses to police and prison guards, who are constantly exposed to violent confrontations, I have arrived at a simple methodology of 10 steps, based on KravMaga principles. 


The dominant elements of this methodology is 'Survival' and "Safety' more than 'Fighting'.

STAGES IN 1ST LEVEL TEACHING OF SELF-DEFENCE
Step 1 - Safety in training
Step 2 - How to defend using hands & legs
Step 3 - How to strike using legs / hands
Step 4 - How to combine defence and Strikes
Step 5 - How to move in different directions without falling
Step 6 - Practice Sparring in predictable environment
Step 7 - Introduce reaction to unpredictable attacks
Step 8 - Train for reality - react from uncomfortable positions 
Step 9 - Introduce basics of multiple attackers
