ONE KICK TO KNOCK YOUR OPPONENT BACK TEN FEET
Hey there! Matt Numrich here again. I had the blessing of training an elite group of law enforcement awhile back, and they needed a self-defense technique to move an opponent back several feet as they were clearing a room and identifying suspects. That objective may not seem that challenging to most instructors, but when I saw their uniforms, and the amount of equipment they were carrying, it became a bit more interesting. Most of them had “long guns” which limited their mobility, and other gear, which added to their weight.
There is this one Krav Maga kick that I teach to civilians which packs a huge punch, while still giving them stability and balance. It would be perfect for these law enforcement guys, but it reminded me how incredible of a technique it is for regular civilians. We have taught females around 100 lbs move bigger, stronger guys across the room with this one move: The Stomp Kick.Females around 100 lbs move bigger, stronger guys across the room with this one move: The Stomp… Click To Tweet
You can click the link below to check out a quick video of me instructing on it, but first, let me explain it.
It is a powerful kick that could be done in two ways – defensively and offensively; depending on the reaction time you have. The “Defensive” Stomp Kick is done when an attacker is close to you. The “Offensive” Stomp Kick is done when an attacker is a slight distance apart from you and when you have ample time to pre-emptively attack.
How To Execute the Krav Maga Stomp Kick
To do so, here are the following steps:
- KIP. Since you don’t have enough time to react fully most of the time and gain a whole lot of momentum, just bring up your knee as high as possible and as much as you can.
- LEAN. Lean your back a bit. This way, you can balance yourself as you throw your hips forward where you basically get the power of the kick.
- KICK. Next, deliver and release that powerful kick using the bottom of your foot to either their chest, stomach or groin area.

This self-defense move is quite effective because such a powerful kick will surely push back any attacker. To get more detailed instruction, in addition to three other Krav Maga self-defense moves, go to this link: http://bit.ly/STOMPKICK.
