A Salute To "The Nutcracker"
What is it about groin kicks?
Is it merely instinct to both protect our testicles and target those of an opponent?
Or is it a deeper psychological projection of emasculation?
- At our old Tae Kwon Do school, one of the guys was sparring with a little guy named Pablo. Pablo was a Mexican national champion. Well, the other guy had his leg held high in a round kick and Pablo accidently kicked him in the nuts. The guy was not wearing a cup, and Pablo blew out one of the guy's testicles. Ouch, I guess that's why evolution gave us two of them. It also highlights the risk of high kicks.
So for the next few days we will explore the agony of "The Nutcracker"...
