Catch & Sweep [Shutting Down the Switch Kick]
The switch kick is a weapon used to not only score and damage the opponent, but as a way to shut down their attack. It is a common technique used against heavy punchers who throw their right hand by stepping in with overwhelming power. A good technician will time this step, ripping the kick into the arm and sticking the arm to their body before the opponent can attack.
If you are going against a technician with a quick and powerful switch kick, this is the solution to shut it down. The pass through catch and sweep can be hard to execute for some [technically], for that reason, we came up with this variation of it – is straight forward and effective in its execution.
Couples that train together, learn from each other, and grow as one. . . obviously stay together. In this video, Richi Alvarez displays a catch and sweep technique to shut down the switch kick with his lady by his side.
