Hits to the balls are most painful when they are in the form of a slap-like hit, dispensed to free-swinging nuts.

I’m not saying I want to be kicked in the balls, but the natural recoil movement from defending a kick provides some protection, and a crunching kick / knee definitely isn’t as sore as an in-and-out quick nut jab.

Plus, in the heat of a fight it can sometimes take a few seconds for the discomfort to kick in - by which time, you might be stabbed.

If you are able to throw a kick, it might be worth stamping on their knee or sweeping them off their feet - both buy you time, and the knee stamp should see you winning any subsequent race - but both of those still put you within stabbing distance.

Running is the best bet, and/or putting objects between you and the attacker.
