5 Self Defense Moves you NEED to know!

What are 5 self-defense moves every person should learn how to do? You should never allow yourself to become a victim to any one person. Knowing how to defend yourself is something that is important to learn and to be able to execute if needed. Here are five moves to learn and practice just in case you ever need to use them.
1.)Defensive Push Kick (Primary Long Range Lower Body Combative)
Target: Groin
Surface Area: Push Kick
Range of Motion: Hip Thrust
How to do it: Drive the ball of your foot into your attacker’s groin.
2.)Defensive Knee (Primary Close Range Lower Body Combative)
Target: Groin
Surface Area: Kneecap
Range of Motion: Hip Thrust
How to do it: When you are in a close range or achieve a temporary control hold, drive your knee into your attacker’s groin.
3.)Palm Strike (Primary Medium Range Upper Body Combative)
Target: Chin/Nose
Surface Area: Heel of Palm
Range of Motion: Combative Twist
How to do it: Drive the heel of your palm through the attacker’s chin or nose.
4.)Hammer Fists
Target: Face/Back of head/Groin (depending on angle)
Surface Area: Side of Fist
Range of Motion: Combative Twist
How to do it: Begin with a basic Downward Hammer Fist to drive the side of your fist down on your attacker’s face (if they’re upright) or on the back of their neck (if they’re pummeled over from a groin strike).
5.)Bracing
How to do it: The brace is a ground survival position that will prevent an attacker from gaining access in between your legs. It requires you to bend both legs at the knee joint and transition to one side/hip so that the shin of the higher leg goes across the attacker’s hips. This is a very powerful and also empowering move/position to obtain as the legs can push the attacker’s body back without high levels of strength.
Knowing these 5 moves can be the key to saving your life if you are ever put into a position. Never say never and always be prepared !
