1- ROUNDHOUSE KICK DEFENSE: In the roundhouse kick defense your objective is to catch the knee preferably early and to open your adversary’s knee to the outside to force him to fall.

In this scenario you are practicing against a standing opponent, using your kicks to create space before standing up to get away from a would-be aggressor.
