Sorry for the long subject line...
I'm continuing to work on kihon combination drills that can be applied in specific defensive ways. Knee strikes are excellent self-defense tactics. However, many attackers also know how to punish victims with explosive, damaging knee strikes. We need to know how to deliver powerful knee strikes but also how to defend against them and to regain the offensive in an encounter. This video discusses how to use a basic low block, high block kihon combination as a defense against a knee strike. This is the fourth and final set of high block kihon combination application drills that I teach. At the end, I include some shots of students playing around with the combination with a partner. Not bad for total beginners!
