Top tips

Student: If your opponent hits you with a four strike combination, reply with five strikes!

KRU: Low kicks are a good way to finish combinations, as your opponent is likely to be covering their head.

Master: If you’re fighting a kicker, keep your hands high and your elbows slightly out. This will make it easier to catch the kicks.
