The Inside Leg Kick & Teep Kicking Combo
Punching combinations are everywhere, but can the same be said of kicking combinations? Definitely not.
The round kick and teep are both like the jabs of the lower body; the teep more so, because has the ability to spear the opponent and stop them dead in their tracks. These techniques are both low commitment strikes that are capable of placing a careless opponent in a bad position. A well-placed leg kick could easily sweep an opponent with poor weight distribution, and a well-timed teep could effortlessly drop an opponent who’s moving towards you.
However, that is not what is best in this combo. What is best in this combination is the reaction your opponent will most likely give you. I’d wager that it’s a safe bet that your opponent will look to counter your kick with a punch, so when they move in after the first kick, that’s when the second kick comes up and stings them dead.
