Evtechs Reverse Elevation Sidestep
It's called 'Reverse' because you end up moving in the opposite direction
to the one you first indicated you would be going.
From a standing start you appear to start running in one direction.
You are so convincing that they must move to block your path.
But it was always a fake move.
You have distributed your weight so well that when you land you naturally
and with little effort move back in the opposite direction.
This takes you clear of their attempted tackle and leaves a clear path
for you to run forward. RELLY!
All this will cause your opponent to move to intercept you.
When you land back where you started from the way is clear to sprint away untouched.
Be sure to train both legs by performing appropriate (mirror image) exercises.
They are set out here for ease of use.
