COUNTERING TAEKWONDO KICKS AT THE INITIAL STAGE
We proceed from countering at Point 2, when an opponent’s attack is in progress, to countering at Point 1, when he has just started his attack. An effective technique is to hook his kicking leg using the pattern "Sweep Leaves Search Fruit", followed by felling him onto the ground and finished with a decisive strike. Many martial artists would not know what to do when their kicking leg is being hooked. But this doesn't mean you can be complacent or careless.
