5 SELF DEFENSE MOVES EVERYONE SHOULD KNOW | Krav Maga Women Techniques
"When in doubt: Kick the groin with as much speed and power as your body can master," Gavish says.
How to do it:Start in a staggered stance, facing your attacker, with your dominant leg (the one you'll use to kick) behind you. Engaging your hip flexors and quads, kick your leg straight out and upward, leaning back slightly from the waist to help balance. Kick directly between your attacker's legs and connect your shin to the groin.
Tip:Unlike what you see in the movies, do not aim with your foot or knee, Gavish says. Your shin will deliver the maximum impact (Bonus: It's a larger surface area, so harder to miss). Another tip: "In your mind, don't stop at the groin," Gavish says. Think of kicking your leg as high as possible, following through the movement for maximum impact.
