SettingĀ up a close range crescent kick

In this video I demonstrate how to feint a front kick to move in close and deliver a crescent kick.

(Apologies for the substandard sound in the video.)

When fighting a martial artist a strategic element is added to the fight. Particularly if both are prepared to fight in advance, such as what would be the case if you are sparring during practise, or competing for a tournament. Because you are facing a prepared opponent who has a technical understanding of fighting, your opponent will try to figure out your patterns and habits. Fighting in this case becomes like a kinectic game of chess. Use your opponents understanding to trick him by using feints!
