Top 7 ways to win more with strikes
I am giving you my most valuable secrets for stand-up fighting
today, but first, let me say, I was shocked by the manny pacquio
decision this past weekend. I wasn't even listening to the cards being read
because I new Manny won. I just knew it. But I'll be darned
if they didn't give him a shaft right up his... well you get
the picture. If you have followed my mma career, you would know
that I've been there so that decision reminded me of a sad
night of my own. But seriously, Manny handled himself like a
champ. Much respect!
Ok, so here's my top seven ways to win the stand up exchanges
even if you are not a good kickboxer. If you follow these rules,
you will automatically be more successful in your next sparring
1. Be first.
In other words, get the first lick and get the hell
out of there. Don't wait around and get gooned. Not just the
first lick of the fight either. The first of every round, and
2. Be first and last.
That means, if your opponent does hit back,
you must block, slip, or evade, then comeback with the last punch
or kick of the exchange. This frustrates your opponent and gives
the judges a clear picture of who won that exchange!
2. Throw a stiff jab!
You know your jab is weak, fix it! It's
just a matter of trying to throw it hard. You're in a habbit
of just laying it out there and so are 90% of ufc fighters. Throw
it hard and fast, you'll take control right off the bat.
3. Throw double jabs.
Yep same as number 2 except you come right
back with another behind it. Your opponent won't know what to
do. You will land at least half of the second jabs you throw.
Test it out and let me know if i'm right. Do one round in
which you throw single jabs, have someone keep track of jabs thrown
and landed, next round, do the same but only throw double jabs!
4. Throw combos.
Not just a one - two either. Throw 3, 4, and 5
piece combos. Just increase your combos and total punches by
20-30% and you'll be amazed.
5. Throw more body shots.
Make it a rule to thow 1 body shot out
of 5 punches. Fake high, go low, the fake low and go high, this
is a simple strategy that works well. I love the body shot for mma
because it keeps your opponent honest and nervous to change levels
6. Throw more inside low kicks.
I love this one for MMA because
it's very difficult to take you down off of this kick. Other
benefits are your opponent will be very nervous after and not be
able to read whether the kick is going low, middle, or high. Keep
this secret underwraps, I don't know why nobody has noticed but
I don't believe I've ever even seen this kick blocked in
mma. I'm sure it has, but not very often!
7. Feint more.
There is nothing to lose by feinting and faking.
It will allow you to get a good idea of what your opponent wants to
do and what there natural reactions are. It will also keep your
opponent on edge and you can control the action.
