Knee Strike to the Groin

This is a self defense technique using the knee to strike the groin of an assailant.


  • In this technique the knee rather than the shin or instep is used to strike the groin, you simply lift the knee as hard as possible thrusting the hips forward a bit at the same time to strike the groin
    • This is often done only if the attacker is much closer (grabbing you) when you are unable to extend the leg into a kick

Note: This strike can still cause sterilizing damage to the reproductive organs especially of a male so please be careful when training with a partner. In females this strike can fracture the pubic bone.

Members: A good video demonstration of this technique has yet been found, so please post if you find one.
