Is It Better To Kick For Self Defense?

The distance is an important factor that you have to consider when you fight. If you strike, but the attacker is not the attacking rage, you cannot hit him. You need to maintain the distance and fight.

You can kick to the attacker from distance. You will find kicking very useful for self-defense. The attacker will not be able to get in the punching range if you kick and stop him right there. There are different kicks in martial arts.

When you kick, you have to take into consideration where you are. If there is enough space, you can do any kick you want. But it is narrow, you cannot raise your legs up and do high kicks. You can adjust and do low kicks in a narrow space. If you do a high kick, there is a probability to catch your leg. But when you do low kicks, the attacker will not be able to catch your leg.

You can kick to the attacker's knee and stop him from moving forward. Then you can follow up with the next strikes. Even you get close to the attacker, you can do foot stomps. When you hit the attacker's foot with your heel, it is very painful.

In case you are not sure what's going on, it is better not to get close to the attacker. When you are in a close range, you can hit the attacker and the attacker can do the same. So be careful when you get hit.

Let's think you are in a situation where water is up to your knees In that situation, it is better not to kick. You can raise your leg to kick, but it will take more time to do that. The attacker has already hit you by that time.

Although kicks are very useful in a fight for self-defense, you have to consider the situation and environment to strike. Hope you will find this post useful. Thank you so much for reading this post. Please feel free to leave your comments and share your thoughts in the comment section.
