WATCH: LA Rams Star Aaron Donald Dodges Knives In Combat Training

    LA Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald is one of the NFLs best pass rushers, recording 11 sacks in 2017. To be the best in the NFL, you need an edge.  Donald apparently adds to the swiftness of his game by dodging knives in his free time. 

    Donald and Denver Broncos DT DeShawn Williams were videotaped learning how to combat knife attacks with D Brown @2_10ths and David Kahn Krav Maga Football Combatives.

    To say those players are engaged in some orthodox and high-risk training is an understatement, but the NFL is a game of risk and anything a player can do to enhance his effectiveness and minimize injury has worth.

    Aaron Donald is the BEST DEFENSIVE PLAYER IN THE NFL, He is always pushing himself to be and get even better! If you want to be the best then you must train with the best and that is D Brown @2_10ths and David Kahn Krav Maga Football Combatives!

    The video set Twitter ablaze and has done nothing but add to his Donalds growing legacy as the NFLs top defensive player.
