While many always promote that self-defense is a must for women, we hardly focus on the fact that even men need to focus on self-defense and it is incredibly important for men as well as women, because staying safe should be everyone’s priority. And out of the many self-defense options, martial arts is quite a popular one. Recently, actor Gaurav S Bajaj took on his social media account, to share a picture of himself practicing kickboxing in the gym. The actor who was last seen in &TV's Siddhivinayak seems quite a pro. As we looked at Gaurav practicing this, figured that these moves can be a major help in defending oneself. So we jot down a few basic moves of kickboxing inspired by Gaurav S Bajaj.
Here check it out...
1. One-Two Combo
Stand in boxing stance with a non-dominant foot in front of other foot, both feet about hip-width distance apart, and hands in fists near chin. Using dominant hand, throw a quick punch to the attacker, followed by a stronger punch with the non-dominant hand.
2. Side Kick Squats
Stand perpendicular to the attacker with feet shoulder-width apart. Bring back foot forward to dominant foot, then lift that foot sideways and kick, striking him/ her (the attacker).
This is a common kickboxing move which is simple enough for even those who have just started to master it. Yet it is challenging enough as well. To try one, drop fist, keeping elbow close to ribs with palm turned up. Squeeze obliques and rotate the torso bringing fist upward, striking the attacker.
4. Front Kick
This fundamental kickboxing move is a great way to defend yourself from any kind of attack. Keep your left foot forward and fists by face in a fighting posture, then shift weight to right foot. Bring left knee up to the chest, foot flexed, and heel close to glutes. Kick left foot straight out from hip, leading with the heel. take back that foot immediately and return to fighting posture.
5. Knee and Elbow Strikes
It should be remembered that your knee is an extremely powerful weapon for close-range combat used to attack your opponent’s groin, ribs, solar plexus or even the face. There are three basic knee kicks which are the front knee, side knee and jumping knee kicks. As the elbow is one of the hardest parts of your body, it’s strikes are very dangerous. It is also perfect for close-range combat just like the knee kicks. The two basic techniques (of the elbow) are the front elbow and downward elbow strikes, where you can punch your attacker in the head.
