Powerful Knee Strikes for Self Defense

An effective strike you need to master to inflict damage

Knee strikes are quite effective when it comes to defending yourself. They can help you destabilize your opponent and even incapacitate him if well done. In this article, you’ll discover all about powerful knee strikes for self defense.

That said, while knee strikes can cause damage to your assailant, it’s a vulnerable position to be in since it leaves you standing on one leg.

The biggest disadvantage of a knee strike is that you are putting yourself at risk of loosing balance and falling. You need to be very careful when you want to do a knee strike and consider your surroundings.

If you’re on an icy or slippery surface, you might want to consider using another technique that doesn’t leave you as vulnerable.

Furthermore, be aware of your surroundings and stay alert. If a knee strike is the best option and can put you at an advantage, then do it. Otherwise, you might want to opt for another technique that is a better choice in the situation you’re in.

Trapping your opponent can help when doing a knee strike

Before you do a knee strike, there are a few things you want to do first. The first thing is to trap your attacker so he can’t get away.

You want to put your attacker in a situation where he has limited movements and won’t be able to strike back.

One of the best ways to do this is to trap him from behind his neck. Put your hands behind his neck and grab his head by pulling it towards you. This will put him at a disadvantage and limit his movements.

Once you’ve successfully trapped his head, use your self defense skills and do powerful knee strikes. Make sure to put all your weight and strength behind your strikes so they’re more powerful and can cause more damage to your opponent.
