AKA Techniques: Leg Catch Variations and Counter Attacks

This AKA Techniques video features AKA Thailand Muay Thai trainer, Kru Bird, demonstrating how to react to leg catch variations and how you can counter them with offensive attacks.

Most recently we have seen UFC fighter, Joaquin Buckley, catching a kick and then landing a jump spinning back kick. The knockout was straight out of a John Wick movie and he may have earned ‘Knockout of the Decade’ on Impa Kasanganay using the technique.

Kru Bird demonstrates other moves that you can do after getting your leg caught. While both techniques look difficult to do, with enough practice, you could execute the steps seamlessly. We suggest working with a training partner and working at 1/2 speed to figure out the coordination of the moves.
