Side Knee Kick

Side Knee Kick. When an opponent launches an attack—for example, with a knife it is most important for the defender to first move his entire body off the line of attack as the attacker moves in.


As the defender steps off at 45 degrees to the outside and toward the opponent, he strikes with a short punch to the floating ribs.

Then the defender turns his body by rotating on the leading, outside foot and raises the knee of his kicking leg to his chest. He then drives his kick into the side of the attacker’s knee with his foot turned 45 degrees outward. This angle makes the most of the striking surface and reduces his chances of missing the target."*
