- For a groin attack, a hand attack is more effective. Drop to a knee, uppercut to the groin, and then grab and twist.
- The common peroneal nerve on the side of the outer thigh is a much more exposed target than the groin and one that is not easily protected or normally protected. To strike the nerve, kick the side of the leg at about mid-thigh, slightly toward the back of the thigh. The pain will be instantaneous and will disable the leg, allowing you to escape or take further action.
For self-defense, simple techniques work best; do not attempt difficult or complicated techniques. Just use techniques that have been proved to work consistently in self-defense situations.
