Leg Grab Defense While On Ground - Roundhouse Kick Defense
There are times when a person is knocked to the ground and the attacker has grabbed the victim's ankle or leg. This is a dangerous position as the attacker could attempt to flip the victim over and jump on their back. Therefore, many martial arts styles practice self-defense techniques in order to escape ground-based assaults.
In Krav Maga, students are taught that one possible way to escape this situation is to use a roundhouse kick. While lying on their back, the student will roll and kick away the hands of the attacker (see video below). Once a student kicks away the hands, they must quickly get up off the ground in order to escape or better defend themselves. Therefore, Krav Maga students also practice how to get back up from the ground versus an attacker.
Students should only practice these martial arts kicking techniques under the supervision of a trained martial arts instructor. For information on other grab escapes and counters, please visit the main Self-Defense section.
