Should You Kick When You Are In Water?


Do you like to walk on the beach?

The water, sound of the wave, sky, and sun - everything makes it so beautiful. It refreshes your body and mind. We all want to be happy.

Even if you have to fight, you fight not because you hate, you fight because you love. You love your daughter, son, wife, parents, relatives, and friends. You fight for your country if you are in the military or law enforcement agency.

We have differences. We are from different countries, cultures, and religions. We also have similarities. Having differences is cool, we can learn from each other. I may not always agree with you, but I respect your opinion. If you are in SportsTalkSocial, you love sports.

I write about martial arts and self defense, hope some of you will find it useful and take action to learn self defense. It can save your life one day. What can be very useful in a situation might not be so useful in another situation. If you are in the swimming pool or you are in water anywhere like the sea, there are certain moves you might not find very useful.

If the water is up to the waist, kicking is not very useful. However, if the water is up to your knee, you can raise your legs and kick. You cannot move forward, backward or to the side fast while you are in the water. If you want to raise your legs and kick, you can do that.

When you raise your leg to kick, it takes some time. You have to pull your leg from water, and it also makes a sound. Your opponent has enough time to see and defend that. If you cannot hit with kicks, it is better to go for other stikes. When you are in close range, you can do palm strike, punch, chop, and elbow strike.

You know what could happen if someone kicks even when the water is up to the knees. So let the attacker kick you, you know what to do, and you have time to defend that kick and counter-attack easily. You can use your surroundings in your favor to protect yourself.
