How To Block A Spinning Hook Kick - Taekwondo Sparring
In Taekwondo sparring, you will often face an opponent who tries to knock you out by using a spinning hook kick. You can either avoid this kick by stepping out of range or block it by using techniques such as "jamming" (moving in close to your opponent so the opponent's spin is disrupted). In addition, you can use defensive techniques such as a push kick in order to knock your opponent off-balance. You can try blocking with your arm but this can result in a knockout if you miss.
For other sparring techniques, please visit the main Taekwondo sparring section.
