Ahh, the dreaded back step pass. I was fortunate enough to learn the intricacies of this technique late into my white belt career. Although my time as a white belt was not all that long, my instructors full body weight smashing into me hundreds of times was enough for me to pick up a list of what not to do. If you don't use the backstep counter/pass in your game, you probably have had someone do it to you. Never the less it's a pain in the ass to deal with and often times, if your opponent is quick enough, he can turn the move into a pass. Our buddy Jeremy Arel shows us a very simple yet highly effective knee switch counter to the backstep.

We are not sure where you get your moves from, but we promise that if you pay close attention to Mr. Arel, you'll do just fine!
