    Thanks, good stuff!

    We use a lot of those counters in my gym too but i've never been shown any knee ones. For the first knee counter you show are you pushing them in the chest as they knee and moving around them or is that meant to be a jab?

    How often do you do these counter drills with your students? And is there a good drill you can do to learn these or do we just copy the video.

    if it helps, i was always taught it mostly as a push to knock them off balance before you did all sorts of nasty bad intentions **** to them, but i suppose if you used it as a stiff jab then it might take some wind out of them, but might lose the push in the process

    We train it as push, although in fight it is more effective as jab or as punch with changing the guard (step forward). But you learn the timing of this counter.
    You can use it also against round kick in every high very effectively.

    Against an attack with left leg (if you stand with left side in front - standard guard) you can step forward and jab or push with left arm.

    Against an attack with right leg you can also step forward and jab or push with the left arm. But you can also make a step forward with the right legt and use a powerful straight punch for knockout. It is hard to get the timing for this, but when can do, is very effective.

    We train it often with students, so that they get more and more timing.

    Great, that makes sense and will work well for me. Counters are a big part of my training so its good getting another qualified perspective on them. I will start adding a couple of these to my drills.

    I find this interesting:
    "Against an attack with right leg you can also step forward and jab or push with the left arm. But you can also make a step forward with the right legt and use a powerful straight punch for knockout. "

    We are taught to use a left hook punch while moving right to counter the right roundhouse kick but i can see this working very well also. Keep making videos please :smile:.

    Great stuff! My personal favourite counter for a rear leg teep is to catch it, throw it to my right and counter with a hard right body kick to his exposed liver.

    I love that counter to the standing knee. Just jab them in the shoulder; jabbing to the chest and shoulders is one of my favourite things to do. Its a brilliant way to keep your opponent off balance and create openings.

    What counter you use successful against low kicks?

    - Jab/Straight Punch
    - block and counter kick
    - move the attacked leg back (if front one is attacked) and counter with kick
    - jump/step back and follow with kick

    Anything else you like to use?
