A quick review…

Whether you slip, trip, or get hit, if you find yourself heading for the ground…

1- PROTECT YOUR HEAD! The more you can tuck your chin, the better. Sprawling backwards and smacking your head on the ground could knock you out before the bad guy even touches you.

2 – GET YOUR LEGS IN THE MIDDLE! Try to face your attacker at all times. Spin yourself around so your feet are aimed in their direction. Whatever you do, don’t turn your back!

3 – KICK WISELY! DOn’t just freak out and start throwing wild kicks. Those are easy to throw aside and waste your energy. Pick the right moments to launch a kick up to the head, the groin, or structural targets like the hips and knees.

And now for the #1 tip– PRACTICE!

No matter what you “know”, the more you put your knowledge into practice, the more likely it will be of use to you! So, find a partner and practice falling safely and kicking your way back to your feet.
