    The Most Common Striking Mistakes!

    I have been working a lot on technique and began wondering what were the most common mistakes people make while striking. At my school I see four main recurring mistake, ( It is a TKD school so the mistakes are mostly about kicking),

    1. Raising the knee, and not dropping it during the kick.

    2. Rotating the hips properly.

    3. Turning the pivot foot and upper body appropriately

    4. Extending the kick fully.

    I know that TKD fighters in generally keep their hands down way too low ,( I do it to some times, but am working on it), and forget to use their hands both offensively, and defensively.

    I'm very curious to here your opinions on what the most basics mistakes in general striking are. I am also considering taking a few boxing classes in the summer so don't feel like you have to talk about TKD I welcome comments from any and all striking arts on any aspect of striking from: punching, and kicking to clinching, distancing and footwork.

    I know this is a bit of a informal thread, but I figured that this forum was the best place to ask about the most common mistakes. if this needs to be moved to YMAS or Basic Misc, can a moderator please move it.
    Thank you

    lol, Alex.

    Here are a couple of things that I am learning/working on a lot myself and noticing a lot in other people too.

    many people can only strike when they are not moving and vice versa.
    Keeping your feet underneath you, so that you don't come out of your stance and you are always ready to move, angle and punch/kick without overcomitting/leaning/reaching and coming out of your stance.
    Using basic angling, distance and footwork so that you don't just run straight into people's power shots and die.

    Also I find a lot of people don't have trouble fighting while moving backwards.

    I don't think this is advanced striking.

    Anyway -

    Lack of head movement, particularly after a strike

    "dragging" hands (bringing them to shoulder/chest when retracting after a punch)

    not changing levels for body shots

    over-reaching/over-extending for the hook

    bending over for the bob & weave

    lack of variation in technique

    chin coming up

    turning away from opponent when you get hit

    moving straight back instead of angling/circling off

    head hunting - (more body shots please)

    That's enough for now.

    In a boxing context I see pretty much everything you mentioned, but this is definitely the biggest problem for strikers.

    It's a bad habit, and it'll get you hurt. Seriously hurt.

    ..and the best bit is, the only cure is to get punched in the face moar!



    ..oh yeah and I'd like to add one to the list

    # Raging out as soon as you get tagged.

    If the guy is hurting you already, do you think getting mad and swinging for him will make him stop?

    My biggest problem is backing up without circling out when I'm getting hit.

    Giving your adversary time to regain consciousness.

    'Cause then you have to waste time hitting him again.
