Counter to the Rear Leg Kick

Counter to the rear leg kick is used when the aggressor executes a front kick with his right leg.

Technique

~ From the basic warrior stance, the aggressor should begin by extending his right leg performing a front kick.
~ Step forward and to the left at approximately a 45-degree angle, moving in toward the aggressor.
~ At the end of the movement, the left foot is forward with the toe pointing toward the aggressor. At the same time, raise your left arm and block or deflect the aggressor’s leg.
~ Block with the meaty portion of your forearm. Move out of the way of the strike, which is better than bending down to block the kick.
~ Leave your left arm against the aggressor’s leg while stepping forward and to the right at approximately a 45-degree angle to close with the aggressor.
~ Follow through by applying pressure against the aggressor’s leg to redirect the strike, throwing the aggressor off balance. Continuing to step forward will position you so that you can strike an exposed area on the aggressor.
~ Counter with at least three follow-on techniques to the aggressor’s exposed target areas and return to the basic warrior stance. See figure 2-40.
