How to do Charging Ram Self Defense Technique

Charging Ram

This technique is against a front tackle, once one of my instructors said this technique would be a secondary attack from two hand push because an attacker would usually try to initiate a fight by pushing you, then if you say something back they would tackle you and that is why we have “Chargin Ram”.

Let’s go over the steps:

  • As the tackle comes in step out of the line of attack by placing your left foot on 3 or 4 o’clock.
  • Execute a left downward parry and a right downward hand sword strike to his back.
  • Left front kick to his ribs and a right front kick to his face.
  • If you are too close then change the front kicks for a front knee.


  • You must move out of the line of attack before you do anything.
