    Single Leg

    • Wrist chop - As opponent reaches (either tired or poor position) chop the wrist defending the leg you are attacking.
    • Wrist pull - While circling with your opponent, pull hard on the wrist defending the leg you are attacking? When they react you release their wrist (pulling hand in, close to their side). Begin shooting immediately when you release their hand.
    • Elbow pop - When your opponent reaches with their arm that is supposed to defend their lead leg

    • Sprawl with feet back and hips in
      • Weight should be applied to your opponent with your hips
