Muay Thai Teep Counter Technique – Catch and Hook
The Muay Thai teep can be highly effective to keep your distance, setup other strikes and damage your opponent throughout the fight. However, if you are on the other side of the teep and constantly getting kicked in the sternum, then you better learn a way to counter it!
In this technique tutorial, former pro fighter and WKA champ, Chris Romulo of CROM Physical Culture, demonstrates an effective counter against the teep attack to the body. By catching your opponents teep and then pulling him into you, you can drive tremendous force in a hook while he is off balance and trying to recover.
Give it a try, drill it and then test it out during your next sparring session!
Teep Catch & Counter Hook
Catching the front kick is a solid way to deter your opponents (and training partners) from constantly throwing it. If you want some more catch counter to add to your defensive bag of tricks, try out the 3 catch counters in the tutorial video below!
And lastly, another way to defend the teep is the basic parry. Using the parry is a great way to put your opponent in a bad position so you can counter with the strike of your liking. Take a look at the way I parry the teep and counter in another short tutorial on how to defend the front kick.
