        James I dont do anything in particular to condition shins it just happens during the course of training through kicking the heavy bag and through sparring. Shin clashes were unpleasant in the early days but its rare tl even register its happened nowadays. To be honest its pretty rare for me to bother checking low kicks now unless in competition, id rather take the hit and tbe thigh conditioning that comes with it.

        Richie This has varied so much in my training. I tend to follow my first instructors thoughts on it. It is fragile but it is a small target and has natural defenses. When stressed they retract which makes the target smaller. Also clothes and weight of the person matter too.

        That being stated, treat the spot like the throat or other sensitive area. When available go for it. It will make the attacker think that split second longer even if you miss. By no means should this be a go to, just an option.

        James We do a little bit of groin attack in self defense. Sometimes a simple front kick or knee to the area and sometimes in a grappling situation to grab and twist. Thankfully the latter situation is mapped through rather than applued with intent!! Sometimes a groin grab is the only option. Once we were practising escapes from a bear hug from behind. The instructor who is much smaller than me, but as strong as an ox and 5th dan kyokushin as well as holding dan grades in aikido among others and iscwell versed in krav maga just could not get ne off using the techniques that were working on everyone else. Everything was tried including kicking the shins, trying to smash his head into my face all to no avail. The onky thing that made me give him enough room to escape was when he simply put his hand behind him toward my groin to go for the grab! No one likes a nut twist! Well, some do but not for me when delivered by a man that can crush walnuts with his bare hands lol.
