Well the short answer is: Why not try it for a month and see whether or not it's something you're capable of doing? Because you won't know until you try. One of the main concerns of practicing more than one style at a time is that you might confuse them, and it will annoy your teachers as well as perhaps slowing your progress. This is a bigger concern for ...

There's no one "technique" here, there's a lot of techniques and principles and all of them are absolutely dependent on the situation and specific. Run Being outnumbered, and against knives, escape is the best option. If you cannot leave the vicinity, the next best option is to get something between you and your attackers - preferably walls and a locked ...

Catching a kick is a common technique in Muay Thai and a major part of san da/san shou (Chinese kickboxing). In Muay Thai, I've seen lots of kicking out or sweeping the other leg. This clip teaches one method, and the video ends with clips of competition applications against opponents doing their best to stay standing. Other techniques I've seen in that art ...

Yes. Dozens. Probably hundreds. Tomiki Aikido regularly practices defense against knife attack; students are required to defend against knife attack at every test. Students are also required to defend against multiple attackers at every test. There are several kata that focus on defense against knife (Koryu dai san no kata in particular includes at ...

How you respond will depend on what kind of fight you are in. Kick opponent in groin. This is obviously not something you do to friendly sparring partners. Kick opponent in supporting leg knee. This may cause serious damage to the joint, so it is also not something you should do to friendly sparring partners. Sweep supporting leg. Assuming your partner ...

Sweeps, throws, and unbalancings. All of them need to happen fairly quickly after capture, of course; giving the kicker an opportunity to reset themselves on their remaining leg makes it a lot harder. The most common issue I see is that people just don't know what to do in a timely fashion. It's odd, because even just rushing the kicker's center of mass is ...

It really depends on your situation I guess, if you are sparring, as above it may be worth sweeping the other leg, Or just to put your point across to your Uke, just move them about the Dojo, controlling the caught leg, and allowing them to balance on the other leg. If this was outside in a street fight, then I would recommend either 1)(extreme - multiple ...

I strongly recomend you to see "the human weapon" and its chapter about krav maga because they talk about it.

High kicks are dangerous because they leave you vulnerable. Take a roundhouse kick toward the head. You expose your groin, your calf muscle and hamstring, your ankle(for someone to use joint manipulation), as well as like you said leave yourself vulnerable to a sweep or other takedown. It depends on what you are talking about. Sparring is different than ...

Beware overtraining. In my university years I trained multiple classes per day, nearly every day per week. In retrospect, it was not smart, too much wear and tear on my joints. If I had cut back a bit then, maybe I wouldn't have been quite as good at the time, but I certainly would be twice as good as I currently am now (in my late 40's). Think of your ...

I will avoid specifying moves that you can do, because the best answer is that it is exceedingly situation dependent what you do. However, it does make sense to break apart what a grabbed leg means. From there, you can learn how to adapt the particular skills your school teaches to that situation. I would say the most important thing about a leg grab is ...

Came across this in training a couple of weeks ago - All depends on the kick I guess - Front kick could come in close and sweep them - Roundhouse could strike the supporting leg, groin or thigh (if High), if its low then a take down and side kick would be similar to a front kick. A consideration would be is don't actively look to catch kicks as this can ...
