Knowing where to hit is the most critical step in learning self-defence. The offensive and defensive strategies only are effective if the adversary is hit at the right spot. In the beginning try to keep things simple, so that your kid easily learns to target the knees, groyne, and head. You can teach them knee strikes are particularly impactful since they are difficult to block. They should know how to target the attacker’s neck, eyes, ears, and nose as a part of self-defence.
