- Stand in low front stance with the shield held in front of the torso. You may lean into your front leg and resist the attacking force or you may relax and let your body move backward naturally with the force of the technique.
- Hold the shield firmly by its handles. When handles are located on the sides, sometimes a kicker may slide by the shield with a kick and hit one of the hands holding the shield. To prevent this, you may hold the shield by two opposite rear corners to protect the hands.
- Hold the shield firmly against your body so it may absorb the force of kicks. If it is held away from the body, when it is hit by a powerful kick, the shield will painfully slam backward into your body.
- Turn you face to the side during a kick. If a kick slides the shield upward, it may slam into your chin or nose.
