Leg Kick Defense - Scoot

In addition to the leg check, the cut kick, the push kick, and blocking, there's another way I call the "scoot." Watch the beginning of the video as I make my opponent (in the grey shirt) miss by sliding back with both feet to get my legs out of the way while staying in range. You can then counter with either leg, or jump in with hands or a takedown.

BTW, I apologize for any quality problems in the video - they're all from sparring tape, not choreographed. The angles and quality would be better if planned and staged beforehand, but they lose the realism.
