If you want to draw a punch, stand square with your opponent. When you fire a rear leg kick, your body squares with the opponent, so a fake rear leg kick may draw a punch counter. This move may also draw a kick. To differentiate between an imminent kick or a punch, watch the opponent's upper body. If the opponent leans backward, a kick is probably coming; if the opponent leans forward, a punch is probably coming.
To draw a front kick, fake a front kick. Then defend against the front kick and counterattack.
To draw a round kick, stand a few inches to the side of the opponent's centerline; this makes it difficult for the opponent to fire a front kick or side kick. Start out or range and inch closer while exposing your midsection. The opponent will probably fire a lead leg round kick.
To draw a heel kick, start with a side kick draw but keep your ribs covered. Let your lead hand drop some and the opponent will probably fire a heel kick to your head.
To draw a back fist, stand out or range, protect ribs, and expose your head. As the opponent moves in with a back fist, move inside and block above opponent's elbow.
