For the next move in our Richard Bustillo’s JKD Techniques series, begin with you and your opponent standing in a left-leg-lead stance. He attacks with a lead-leg front kick, which you intercept by thrusting your left hand into his closest shoulder, thus disrupting his momentum. At the same time, you avoid what’s left of his kick and trap his foot to keep him off-balance, Bustillo says. “Once you get the kick, you step to your left so your left leg is positioned behind his right leg,” he says. “Then you slide your foot and sweep him to the floor. Once he’s down, you hook his left ankle with your right arm. Your left hand checks his knee as your right hand locks onto your left wrist.”
