we’re dealing with defenses against regular kicks to the groin
we’re starting with the easiest ones- legs vs. legs
We have here 2 options- either stop kicks, if I recognize early on what he’s doing,
or if it’s a little later, but still ok, not too late
I can also work with the shin, and that’s what we’re doing now.
So, he’s kicking- this is one.
The defense is also a deflection
This defense is exactly the same as, for example,
So everything that comes from the inside,
and we’ve said that also on Monday and Wednesday when we were dealing with knife threats
If it’s between my arms, it gets an inside defense.
Doesn’t matter what he’s doing (almost)
either it’s a straight punch,
or an uppercut,
if it’s a high regular kick
or if it’s a kick to the groin. These are all inside defenses.
The movement is from outside in. The defense.
So now, kick and immediately counter.
So his hands are now my targets,
So again the principles- we had 200% defense and in this case 200% would be this.
Because here Ionly have 100, and the other 100 is the step to the outside,
Simultaneously I’m countering
ok? we’re switching every time.
I kick once, he defends and counters
and then he
He kicks to connect.
If I don’t do anything, he should
I don’t have a groin guard right now, but if you have-
connect to the groin
and if your partner doesn’t have one- kick to the bellybutton.
