How to Do a Krav Maga Defense Kick Forward

Learn how to do a defense kick forward from Krav Maga Master Instructor Rhon Mizrachi in this Howcast video.


Defense kick forward is a thrusting kick forward. It will make contact either with the ball of your foot, the entire foot, or the heel. That's based on range and based on, obviously, your footwear. We need to do remember, this art was originally designed for soldiers in boots. So, if you have this kind of footwear, it doesn't really matter how you kick. What's important is that you kick and your entire body will transfer forward after that, into the target.

So, from here, it's going to be one, don't do it for a second. From here, it's going to be one, slow, I'm going to higher knee into my chest cavity, I'm going to fire my body backward foot forward, and then extend my body into the target. Let's do it five times slow. Right foot, one, again, one, again, one, again, two more. One, one. Do a little quicker. Only three times. One, two, three. Change legs please. Nice and easy and slow. One, two, three, four, and five. Let's go quick. And, again, again, and one last time.
