    Why hit the same covered target when they're giving you an alternative open target by covering?

    I like pie.

    Also I can see the TS' point but only if we're talking about zombies.

    And ninjas.

    Because taking into account most fights aren't to entertain for 3 or more minutes and are decided in the first few seconds...

    Its better to do deal as much trauma as you can to a single area in the shortest amount of time, although not effeiciently, then to dance around like a fairy.

    OP, what's your experience in MA? I'm guessing video games since you seem to highly value the "flashing weak spot" theory.

    In .gif #2, the jab isn't a feint. The jab-low kick COMBINATION is a popular COMBINATION in Muay Thai.

    The point of combinations is to -ideally- hit multiple targets but also open up other targets, as Permalost said, when an opponent does cover up (i.e. headshot following a bodyshot). I'm going to have to disagree on the fact that you cannot in fact block the same blow twice.

    Here's your toll, troll.

    Aiming for the exact same spot despite the person blocking it is a great way to get countered. Show me exactly what an opponent will do and I'll show you how to counterhit without even needing to block.

    Op, in the oh so slightest chance that you are not a troll, what is your experience in MA? Please note, KickPuncher asked you the same thing.

    You see, if you are someone with experience, than perhaps we will take your opinion seriously. If not, shut the **** up.

    LMAO why even bother asking this. If not a troll the answer is of course none or I should say none that involves any sorts of element of aliveness.
    Can we really call a martial art that doesn't involve aliveness a "Martial" art at all?

    I am just curious as to what kind of troll we have here. I'm guessing the "tons of streetfights" kind of guy.

    Suppose you're only training to fight zombies, which by definition can't involve any aliveness since zombies are clearly not alive. Does that count?

    And just so you know I'm not being prejudice, the same applies to vampires as well. Unless of course they are smokin' hot Kate Beckensale vampires, in which case I'd advise just giving up and maybe begging for a little some some before getting exsanguinated...

    But that's just me.
