KICK COUNTER:

Black Belt - - SCREEN SHOTS -

Jim Arvanitis (left) faces his ad­ver­sary, with both men in op­po­site leads ( 1). As the other man feints a left jab to the face, the pankration prac­ti­tioner takes a short step back­ward to evade the blow (2). The man then piv­ots and sends a rear-leg round kick to­ward Arvanitis’ lead leg (3). The mar­tial artist shuf­fles his lead foot back so the kick misses (4), af­ter which he coun­ters with a round kick to the thigh (5). Drop­ping his right foot, Arvanitis checks the man’s lead hand and fires a left cross to the jaw (6).
