Sune-uke kick feint with punch, hook sweep

Objective: Distract the opponent with a jab and raising the knee whilst using the knee motion to protect your mid-section.  Land foot to execute a hook sweep.

Whilst faking a jab, raise your back leg knee high inwards to outwards to block attacks to your mid-section and give the impression of a kick.  Land the foot right behind the heel of the opponents front foot and hook sweep.
