How to Do an Inside & Outside Crescent | Taekwondo Training


I’m going to be showing you guys how to use
the crescent and the outside crescent axe kick in sparring. So instructor Andrew is actually going to
actually demonstrate. Now, one of the basic moves you can do is,
if I throw a rear leg roundhouse kick like this, he can counter me with a crescent axe
kick, like this, boom. So one more time, he goes up and bang. The kick won’t hit my face. If I use the left leg to attack him, but let’s
say my opponent does something like this, he can do now the outside crescent kick. So one more time, bang, this way. Now, when you are practicing, make sure you
guys, you and your opponent are safe, move back a little bit so you don’t hit each other. Second, flexibility is very important so work
on your stretches and another one, mistakes. Let’s talk about mistakes. Now, if instructor Andrew makes a mistake,
such as he goes for a crescent axe kick when I fold my left leg towards his stomach, so
I’m going to first demonstrate really slow, I’m coming in, he throws a kick. What happens is our legs might clash. One more time, the error looks like this. Bang, this happens. Again, we don’t want to clash with each other. We want to be smooth. So again, he has to make the right decision
and blow out the right kick which is the outside kick so we won’t clash. I do it again, this way. Now, again, if he throws the outside kick
with his rear leg and I throw a rear leg roundhouse kick, we’re going to clash, bang, like that. And as a matter of fact, I might hit him first,
okay? So he’s got to make the right decision when
I the kick, he’s going to go for the crescent axe kick. And that’s how we do the crescent and the
outside crescent axe kick in sparring.
