Instructions for Self-Defense Techniques against Vital Points (i.e. Groin Attacks)
This section explores self-defense techniques used against vital points (i.e. groin, nose, throat, etc.). These hand & arm strikes, knee strikes or kicks are designed for self-defense situations (i.e. rape prevention) and not for basic martial arts sparring competitions. They are very effective for women's self-defense in order to escape a larger male attacker.
These vital point strikes are in addition to the normal muscle and skeletal targets used in self-defense situations. For more martial arts anatomy information, please visit the main Anatomy section. Vital points are areas on the human body that are very painful if struck or can result in severe injury if hit. These areas can not be protected by increased muscle mass or strengthened by conditioning (i.e. legs and arms). These attacks on vital areas should only be used in life or death situations because you can severely injure your opponent or training partner. Moreover, these techniques should only be practiced under the careful supervision of a trained martial arts instructor.
