After The Crisis, there will be a great deal of fighting. I'm not looking forward to it, but that is how it will be. People who have been kicked forcibly in the knee will know how painful and debilitating it is to be kicked forcibly in the knee. Those among you who have not experienced it will only be able to imagine what it feels like, but the very act of thinking about it is likely to cause a speculative ‘ow’. The fact is that the knee is a perfect target, forming as it does the junction between the upper leg (or thigh) and the lower leg and foot. This nobbly nexus is required to be flexible to allow full movement and, as such, can be pushed out of place with the right amount of violent coercion. A displaced knee does two things: it really hurts, and it limits mobility / ability to hurt you. A disabled assailant is easier to kill - or you may simply retreat from the scene without the risk of your enemy chasing after you.

Do not use the toe of your boot or foot, use the insole or outside. This allows much more force, and will limit jarring. The object is to hurt your opponent, not yourself. Once you have made contact, drag your foot from the knee down the shin. This is excruciatingly painful, as the fibula bone is near the surface. Complete the move with a heavy downwards stamp. Remember that the foot contains a number of small bones that can be smashed easily. So smash them.   

A sincere and committed kick is highly likely to signal the end of any meaningful resistance from your foe. It is then a matter of deciding how the rest of the now rather one-sided fight will go. Not every battle has to be to the death, but then taking prisoners is always a pain, and there is some paperwork involved, so let your conscience be your guide. If your opponent is recumbent, i.e. sparked out, a forceful two footed jump onto their sternum is usually enough to kill them quickly and without wasting ammunition.
Yes, it’s brutal, but in war as in life, it’s better to be the stampee than the stamped upon. The moral high ground is a steep climb, those without functioning knees won't make it.
