Understanding Inside Defenses

Our most recent blog addressed Outside Defenses against strikes.  http://ikmfto.blogspot.ca/2014/11/understanding-outside-defenses.html

This article will focus on (surprise!)inside defenses.  Inside defenses involve redirecting strikes/grabs from an outside position to inside using your arms or legs.  Often, these are straight attacks such as straight stabs, punches, and kicks.  

Some examples:
  • Inside Defense vs straight punch
  • Inside Defense vs straight stab with knife (see pick below)
  • Inside leg deflection vs straight kick. (see video below)
Here are some visual examples:

Here is video demonstrating inside reflexive defense vs low straight kick.
