Jeet Kune Do leg method Reverse hook kick

The movement route of the reverse hook kick is exactly the opposite of the hook kick, which is a way to perform the bounce kick from the inside out, which is somewhat similar to the hitting method of the hanging hammer, requiring rapid elastic recovery after the action is hit, with the toe and the edge of the instep as the main contact points. The main kick sites are the crotch, abdomen, and chest.

[Method of action]

Stand on the right swing pile. Move the left foot forward to the right foot position, raise the right leg inward, and relax the ankle: at the same time, the knee joint is turned outward, driving the calf to arc from the inside out. (Figure 2-50(1)(2)(3))

Knee lift is turned outward, and the force is shaken to reach the toes or the outer edge of the foot.

[Practical Demonstration]

Confrontation between enemies and us. I distracted my opponent with my forehand strike, and at the same time, I stepped up and kicked the opponent’s crotch with a reverse hook. (Figure 2-51(1)(2)(3))
