Defensive tactics training: Defeating a front kick
The defensive move to counter the front kick not only turns the tables on your attacker, but it also upends the table on him
Having been an active street cop for the entire 33 years of my police career, as well as an active police trainer for 43 years, in this year-long series I plan to share some of the defensive tactics techniques that helped me prevail on the street. I will present a variety of defensive tactics in a format that allows you to follow the instructions and practice the technique. Remember practice makes prepared.
A very common attack on the street is the front kick. This is the most natural kick to deliver during an assault and it is often preferred because it is powerful and one does not need a black belt to master it.
