The main concept behind 3rd party protection is, quite obviously, to protect someone other than yourself. Cases can be placed on a scale from natural (like a mother protecting her child), through a responsibility-based protection (a teacher or commander), to professionals (a Bodyguard protecting his client).Third party protection Krav Maga is needed because of its difference from the basic self defense situation: Physically, one must use the technique to protect someone else and not himself, by taking two physical actions; the first is removing the 3rd party from danger’s way. The second is parrying the attacks for the 3rd party. Emotionally, one must make a switch in his mind; “switch off” his sense of self-preservation, and “switch on” his sense of duty (natural, responsibility based or professional). Krav Maga makes a person mentally ready for situations like these and gives him tools to react in the right way in the right state of mind in these times.
