Glancing Wing Step by Step

  • Right step as your right-hand blocks the uppercut and your left-hand delivers a vertical punch to the face of the opponent.
  • Slide your right hand up as your left-hand checks and clears his right elbow.
  • Do a right hammer to his kidney, then the same hand checks the right arm.
  • Slightly move your left foot back a bit as your right-hand grabs his neck to pull him down.
  • Now a left downward elbow strike and cross out.
