    how to use the uppercut

    how do you guys use the uppercut? close range only or do you throw from a distance? do you go for body or head? what are the advantages/disadvantages of this punch?

    It's a pretty close-range punch for me. Anything farther and I'm going to get hooked. An excellent technique for the clinch though. Pull down hard to make your opponent resist upward, let go of the clinch so their head rises up, then land it right under the chin!

    Usually from a combo, it's a telegraphed punch so you have to set it up with a combo. Maybe as a sucker punch or coming back from an evasion but outside that situation I can't see going right in for an uppercut?

    I have only used uppercuts during boxing and now that I think about I have yet to throw an uppercut in any other situation. Its hard for me to add in an uppercut since I suck at ground fighting and I try to stay on my feets if I can help it keeping my distance.

    I like the one-two, lead hand uppercut when in close. I hardly ever use the rear hand uppercut, but I haven't been kickboxing for that long.

    Good point Azteca, the uppercut commits you to close range fighting with the potential of locking up and getting to the ground depending on how your opponent reacts.
    I used to take my fights to the ground because the Judo throws I learned were designed that way. Now I try to take them standing, but I don't fight much now.
    Although I will say that Shou Shu, the style I study of kung fu, is all about close quarter strikes and the like. And I want to do some cross training in wing chun eventually, so I'd better get aquainted with close quarters fighting!
    But yeah, at the NoCal throwdown Omega owned my ass with some Sambo **** and it didn't even seem like he was trying. Judo's ground game didn't really prepare me for that. So I should probably look into Sambo, Jujitsu, or something.

    what the hell? dont throw uppercuts cause you dont like grappling? for exactly the same reason i would say dont throw elbows or knees either. theyre close range and can be countered by grappling as well...

    Very rarely will I purposefully close range to throw and uppercut, but I still use it a lot. The uppercut, and elbows and knees, are valuable tools that can help keep you on your feet if you don't want to go to the ground.

    I typically use the uppercut when someone is trying to tie up and clinch with me. I move back, off angle and bit, and hit them with it as they try to chase me.

    If I use the uppercut it's after a failed cross to stop somebody from coming in; the body is already loaded up and the feet are already in place, and if I see them charge in after my cross it can usually stop them cold if you land it in the body. It doesn't cost you much time and you can follow it with a multitude of combinations.

    do you guys find it hard to split the guard and to recover your guard from throwing the uppercut? and do you uppercut more to body or head?
