    !! I was taught that kick catch move by one of the local kung fu instructors in gainesville (actually, hes one of the best kung fu guys I've seen) in a different way. I didn't know others did it too. I never got any good at it because my club didn't really spar with catch rules.

    3:01 thats some tricky creative **** right there. Can't say I'd remember to pull it off, but I like that. Thumbs up for a fresh insight to some foundational ****.

    The second= in my tool box from now on.

    I never though of throwing someone like that... I generally go for the ankle pick from there.

    My peppermint twist is actually set up in a vary similar way, but instead of stepping out and kincking their planted leg, you go hip to hip, and kick the piss out of the back of the leg while throwing an albow or tricep into the chest. Drops'em like a sack of spuds.

    I'm going to try out the second technique next time my and my folks do some full MMA sparring. Never thought to catch the roundhouse with the leg, that's pretty nifty.

    Your peppermint twist sounds like our "Phoenix throw". Do you start high and rotate downward? Maybe I should do a video on that. It was going to be an inside leg variation. But yes, I've done high calf before, works just as good if not better; this way is safer.

    As to the roundhouse kick catch, watch Tito Ortiz and Machida fight.

    Hmm... not exactly, the idea is to end up on the ground next to your opponent, parallel to eachother, with your arm stretching across their body to control their far leg. Essentially, reaching across them and cupping their ass, preventsd them intitiating a scramble. From there we either step over to mount, or use our far leg to reap THEIR near leg and perform a hands-free knee lock.

    So, I went to my first kickboxing class at the mma gym I decided to attend, and that set up was one of the first things I learned. When we sparred later, though, the leg kicks never worked for me. A lot of the time I went for them I got my opponents hands in my face. I'm guessing this is way more useful for a late round tactic when your opponent is worn out.

    Yes, you have to get your opponent into a rhythm before you attempt.
