How To Setup the Cross with Low Kicks
“The art of war is deception.” -Sun Tzu
Playing mind games with your opponent is the name of the game. However, your ability to play mind games will depend on the weapons you hold.
For mind games to work, you need to have threats. If you can’t harm your opponent, he’ll just keep on charging forward and having his way. A threat without harm is just a bluff. The tricky thing is that the same trick may not work twice. A strong low kick is not enough. Even feints are not enough. But…if you mix up your offense completely, you’ll have a good time.
Muay Thai Leg Kick Feint To Powerful Cross
What good is an attack if it can’t find a home? Being able to operate just on the border of your opponent’s offense is what can enable yourself great offense. Range is the key, and combinations are the great treasures you will find. You can then take said treasures and bury them in your opponent’s legs, necks, or chins.
There is another gem inside this video that I’ve yet to mention, the inside leg kick. Tender meat is good to eat, but not fun to get kicked…if that makes any sense. Point being, kicking the inside of one’s leg is great for the kicker, awful for the kicked.
