Groin Kick - Self-Defense Kicking Technique

This page provides details on a martial arts groin kick. This is a basic self-defense technique taught to most martial arts students. A groin kick can temporarily incapacitate many male opponents. However, given the pain inflicted by this technique, many males instinctively protect their groin. Most groin kicks usually involve a front kick to the groin. However, a groin kick can also utilize a toe kick, push kick, etc.

Groin kicks are illegal in most martial arts sparring competitions. However, they are useful in self-defense situations (i.e. rape prevention). For more information, please visit the Vital Points, Kicking Techniques and Self-Defense sections.
