Real Fighters Gym – Technical Tips
Today’s technical tip is about getting around low kick defense. In particular when an opponent defends the low kick by blocking with their shin. There are many options to choose from and today we will discuss faking the kick to draw the block and then putting the leg back down with a hook. It is a very basic response to an opponent who is weary of the low kick!
I’ve prepared a short video demonstration to explain the set up. The video was taken at a seminar at Marc Meltzer’s North Shore Muay Thay Academy in Boston. If you get a chance to visit I encourage you to!
