shaolin kungfu

Counter against a sweeping kick

A strong point of Boxers and some Kick-Boxers is their fast punches. But it is not difficult to intercept their punches and counter-strike if you know how.

When you close a Boxer, he may bounce away, in which case you “chase, cover and strike”. But when you close a Kick-Boxer, he may respond with a sweeping kick. An effective counter is to sink back, strike his leg, then shoot forward to strike him continuously. You may also fell him onto the ground.
