Catch Kick & Sweep or Trap Sweep

This page examines the sweep technique known as the Catch Kick & Sweep. It is also called a Catch & Sweep or Trap Sweep. This technique involves catching (trapping) an opponent's kick and then sweeping the opponent's remaining leg so the opponent will fall to the ground. After the opponent falls to the ground, the attacker may try to employ strikes, kicks and/or grappling techniques against the more vulnerable and possibly stunned opponent. This basic sweep technique is used by many martial arts styles such as Muay Thai.

After the opponent has fallen to the ground, they may attempt to employ a defense against the leg grab (i.e. roundhouse defense when leg grabbed on the ground) if the attacker continues to hold the opponent's leg.

For other sweeps, please visit the wiki's section on Foot or Leg Sweeps.
