Today I'm going to be showing you two ways to pivot out from your opponents attack.


  1. Utilizing the hook. I throw my left hook and pivot out to my left foot. As the hook lands, I pivot out to the side, and throw a right roundhouse kick.
  2. Utilizing the cross. On the other side you can do the same thing. I use either the right cross or the right hook. I throw my cross, step out, switch stance, and throw a left roundhouse kick.


Once you have those combinations down you can add a little more to them. For #1 you can include a body hook with the left arm. For #2, you can finish with a right cross. If you have any questions, please feel free to leave them in the comments section below.
