i know that that kicking is effective for keeping people away from you but what if they try tackling you, sure you can kick them in the face but there still moving foward and whilst they are theres a good chance theyll get a hold of ya.

what would you do? say if if someone was three feet away and then went for the take down and you coudnt get the kick in quick enough?
perhaps jump over them?
catch them in a reverse headlock and ddt them?
catch them in a reverse headlock and smash their head into a wall or nearby object?

thoughts please.

IF you're quick enough, use your knee (mooreup).

Take care,

Gaffer.

That's why it's not a bad idea to cross train. (ie. Jiu-Jitsu)

Been there done that.
The best way to avoid that situation is to reconize people who are a possible threat,and stay more than three feet away.If thats not possible use your foot work to get out of there.I would not recomend only relying on jiu-jitsu because if you are out numbered the ground is where they want you.Also he could have a knife.Of course,if there is no knife or others to worry about.Jiu-jitsu is perfect!

Learn to sprawl. If you can take his back, or drop an elbow on his neck. Not always possible.

The knee is a good technique if you absolutely cannot spend any time getting tangled up ( against several opponents ), but keep in mind it's low percentage, and if it fails you've pretty much given him the takedown.

tackles don't usually start 3 feet away bu still if i were to be tackled from that far away they wouldn't have enough speed to hit me hard enough to keep there momentum so i'd just knee them on impact and rool them away.
however if they were say 8-10 feet away. and did get the necessary speed to keep there momentum I'd probably be to late to counter it before the impact so I'd just raise my knee and give them something hard to land on. [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/biggrin.gif[/IMG]

Sure there's alot of variables... 1 attacker, multiple attackers... for the sake of argument lets stick with one. If multiple... it's 'fight or flight', probably the latter. Let's face it, it's not the 2 on 1 Dojang senario, these thugs will fight dirty, probably want to do some serious bodily injury to you.

I would think the typical street thug DOESN'T want to take the fight to the ground; mostly wants to remain standing. If you should cross a 'mental' grappler of the MMA type, you'd better knock him out before he gets a hold of you, or else...

Taekwondo is not just kicking. Step back in a low front stance and punch to the face, and keep moving back to gain distance.

Sprawling is the best solution.
By the responses some of you gave, I can see you have absolutely no clue.

I'm not seeing much advice here that makes me feel warm and fuzzy. If I had to choose a strategy, I would go with mobility. You're on your feet, so use 'em! Move around, don't trip, look for escapes, and attack fast and hard.

As always, take my advice with a grain of salt, as I have not been in this sort of situation.

I have heard MuayThai (the member) mention something called a flying knee. If I'm correct, that would be a good technique against a charger, assuming that you have room to move forward.
