Combos with lunge punches?
I just wanted to know if Kickboxers do lunge punches to the face
For examplo Throwing a jab then moving the rear foot to the front and throwing another jab with the now switched stance
N00b question from a Kyokushin practicioner I'm trying to practice some Headpunching and Kickboxing or Muay Thai combos in the bag so help me with this info
I cant pay other gym with headpunching right NOW,
But I have a free pass on my gym with Bags, focus mittens, shields and a few people willing to do something new.
You know what just give me a few headpunching combos and ideas for a begginer or some legit videos of Kickboxing combos and techniques
some ideas to help add a Muay thai touch to otherwise pure Kyokushin practicioners

Not likely, at least without a kick coming from the new back leg in short order.

Thanks for the replies

Check out the knock out punch Ray Sefo hits Jerome Lebanner with. Not the same as your lunging punch i'm sure, but it almost fits the description.
I will check it out

Something else I've been playing with lately too is shifting my shoulders like I'm about to throw a hook, then stepping forwards diagonally with my right foot as I slip a left uppercut up the middle.
As for lunging into different stances with a jab, I'm not personally a fan of that, but I know someone who does it pretty well. He's a southpaw and if he ever catches you circling the wrong way (to his left), he'll mow you down by switching stances with a left jab.
No lunges where I train, but of course there are punches that go along with switches in order to throw left kicks (as an orthodox boxer). The lunge punch usually results in a huge overcommitment and opens you up to counters.
A few beginner headpunching combos for you:
Jab-L. uppercut-L. hook-cross
Jab-jab-cross (can cut an angle with your footwork during the double jab)
