Changpuek Kiatsongrit: kick grab to takedown

Beautiful sweep by seven-time world champion Muay Thai fighter Kiatsongrit in his fight against legendary Dutch kickboxer Rob Kaman.

 To apply this technique you need to cross grab your opponent’s teep/front kick (ph. 5) and sweep with your right foot in one direction as your right arm pushes the head to the other side (ph. 9). You have to be relentless in the execution of this technique. Generally I prefer grabbing or blocking teeps with the hand of the opposite side (his left leg, your left hand). This opens up sweeps, left hooks and left high kicks. See gif below for the full sequence:
