Instructions for Self-Defense Techniques against Vital Points (i.e. Groin Attacks)

This section explores self-defense techniques used against vital points (i.e. groin, nose, throat, etc.). These hand & arm strikes, knee strikes or kicks are designed for self-defense situations (i.e. rape prevention) and not for basic martial arts sparring competitions.

These vital point strikes are in addition to the normal muscle and skeletal targets used in self-defense situations. For more martial arts anatomy information, please visit the main Anatomy section. Vital points are areas on the human body that are very painful if struck or can result in severe injury if hit. These areas can not be protected by increased muscle mass or strengthened by conditioning (i.e. legs and arms).

Strikes to vital areas should only be used in life or death situations because a person can severely injure an opponent or training partner. Moreover, these techniques should only be practiced under the careful supervision of a trained martial arts instructor.To avoid injury, many martial arts schools only practice vital point strikes against training dummies (i.e. BOB - Body Opponent Bag).

For more techniques, please visit the main Self-Defense, Kicking Techniques and Punches & Strikes section.
