Hello,

Our testing requirements dictate that the student must be able to demonstrate at least three different defenses from three different types of kicks (front kick, side kick, and round-house kick; three different defenses from each one). So, naturally we teach these methods of defense. Front kicks are the most simple, you can "steal" uke's balance very easily as they raise their knee up to kick, the same can be said for a side kick. A few of the defenses involve performing a kotegaeshi like technique on uke's foot, however most of the defenses mainly involve the taking of uke's balance and "plopping" them on their backsides. Hope I've helped
