Chop/Slap to the Groin

This is a primary groin strike best used when caught in a bear hug from behind (arms pinned) or a rear standard choke or a sideways facing passive aggressive opponent.

Instructions/Scenarios

  • From a rear choke you step to the side using your curled fingers to quickly and forcefully pluck the hands away from your neck (common in Krav Maga)
    • The opposite hand of the side that you moved to follows the downward plucking motion right into the groin with a chopping/swinging like motion
    • From there there are a number of ways to finish attacking the opponent, control them, or just get away
  • From a bear hug from behind with arms pinned to your body, shift the hips to the side and take a step if possible
    • The opposite arm will quickly strike back into the groin and loosen the opponent
    • A number of follow up techniques can then be used to fully get out of the grab
    • From there there are a number of ways to finish attacking the opponent, control them, or just get away
  • Two opponent scenario with the both of them threatening ly getting closer to you but in a fairly calm manner because the know they have you out numbered
    • On of them closer than the other or you yourself and shift to be closer to one than the other
    • Try to angle yourself so that the closer one is mostly to your side, right or left
    • Then as they are talking the same quick explosive groin chop can be used on the closer opponent, giving you time to deal with the other or get away
    • This is a preemptive attack that will buy some time to deal with the situation
