    Foot Sweep entries

    Two things i would like to know, from a striking perspective have you found any tell tale signs people have when going in for a sweep and what kind of entries have you used to execute a sweep when sparring?

    You want to talk about Karate style foot sweeps not Judo style foot sweeps, yes?

    Double up on the jab first.

    Unless it's Judo.

    my apologies for not responding sooner, either is ok, more information always helps, but yes more karate style than judo.

    As for your first question, the only thing that I can imagine is if they try and keep your guard and eyes high they're definitely going to shoot in low with something after. That could mean a good kick to the liver/ribs, or a sweep. That's really one big thing that I look for.

    As for entries, my favorites would have to be the double jab to go for an inside leg sweep, or a good one-two punch (kizami-gyaku combo), and let your hip drive your back leg through the sweep. I've probably learned the most about karate sweeping from the gentleman in this video:

    If I remember correctly there are some videos around of Whiteshark jumping off some nice footsweeps at a TD or something.

    Just in case your adversary forgets the ruleset, you might want to become comfortable with the gentlemanly art of stuff 'n' sprawl.

    Hahaha touche, but to be fair I was thinking specifically for sports karate uses, as I can only imagine that's what OP was asking about. Most of us krotty types don't really even know how to shoot in for a take down anyway.
