UNLEASH THE WARRIOR | THE DIAGONAL (LOW) KICK | by Orjan Pettersen

In UNLEASH THE WARRIOR, we show you how to optimise and train your self defence strikes, techniques or movements in five simple steps.


Use UNLEASH THE WARRIOR to be introduced to or to practice your skills further.


This session covers the DIAGONAL (LOW) KICK. Follow these easy steps:

  1. Start from a distance where you can reach the opponent with an outstretched arm.

  2. Facing the target and with hands up in front of you, make a stomping motion step with your non-kicking leg, slightly bending it to put all your body weight onto this leg and into a forward momentum. Important: Point this base leg toes towards the direction the kick is moving into.

  3. As you commence the step with the base leg, simultaneously start a very fast upward motion with your kicking leg, moving it diagonally towards either the outside or inside of the near leg of your target. The kicking leg should be slightly bent at the toes, ankle and knee so to create a very solid shin musculature.

  4. With this leg frame, connect with the target around 10cm above the knee (inside or outside) with your shin as if to slice both the target’s legs in two. Don’t immediately recoil, press the shin into the connection point.

  5. Then recoil as fast as you can. Place the kicking leg down where you need to tactically.
