This technique is another way a Muay Wanorn stylist throws the opponent as soon as he dares to attacks him with a kick. Grabbing the kicking leg can be accomplished by evading the attack first and then entering into the opponent’s center. In this case proper footwork is paramount.


When he is attacked by a heavier opponent’s kick, the smaller Wanorn boxer cannot stand the power of the attack. Therefore, he quickly sidesteps the kick and simultaneously grabs the attacking limb, preparing the subsequent throw.


When the kick comes, the Muay Wanorn practitioner moves away from the attack while grabbing the leg with one arm. Without stopping, he inverts the direction of his motion and steps forward while holding the attacking leg with both arms. A leg hook combined with a double arm pull completes the throw.
