LEADER LAPIZ TO BACK SACADA – WITH A PARTNER (Part 1)

Continuing on with my previous video, here’s a video on how to do the leader lápiz & back sacada with an actual partner. Please note that this version shows the back sacada into the follower’s open (side) step.

In the next few days, I’ll post a video that demonstrates another back sacada variation with a longer leader pivot.

Please be careful not to kick each other while practicing.
