Flying Side Kick by Matt Bottos

Currently unavailable for purchase

Mixed Martial Artist CJ
I loved the flying side kick since I was a young kid who spent far too much time watching Bruce Lee movies instead of doing school work.

As a teenager I practiced this many times in my backyard when no one was looking but was never quite able to execute one as gracefully, effortlessly or without sustaining some sort of injury as CJ was able to ;)

    oh I know what you mean about repetitively watching the same Bruce Lee films and practising in the backyard – except we didn’t have a backyard… So me and my brother used to practise together in the living room, which was quite desastrous for my mother’s decoration and furniture…

  • haha Ina you’re grouse! I didnt grow up with any siblings but if I had a sister I’d hope for one like you :)
