When you defend any strike whether it is a kick, punch, or any other strike, you do what is easy and more effective at that time. You have something on your hand or, for somehow, you cannot use your hands, you can use kick as a defense.
When you want to defend yourself against a kick by doing a kick, you have to be faster than your opponent. You see that your opponent is about to kick you, you already hit him with a kick before his kick reaches you. Your opponent will not get a chance.
Here the distance between your and your opponent is important. If you are not that close and you can move back as a defense so that the attacker cannot hit you.
If you do not understand what your opponent is going to do, you cannot intercept his kick. You have to observe his movement and make your move fast.
Any kick above the waist, we usually defend and block that with hands and any kick below the waist, you can use your legs to block that. The thing is, it is easy to parry with your hands when the attacker kicks higher. Your hands are already there. So you can do it fast.
If the attacker does low kicks, you can kick his legs or raise your legs as a defense. To make any move or defend yourself, what works like magic is your footwork. The attacker will not be able to hit you if every time you get out of attacking the line.
You have to get in fast to attack and make the distance so that you can use it to your advantage. Every situation is different, that's why what works in one situation, that might not work in another situation or that might not be that effective.
So have an open mind and make your move based on the situation and what you want to do. Thank you so much for reading this post.
