    Thread on Strikings best Combo's

    Now for the intest of keeping this simple

    Is a jab - cross the best striking combo about. I honestly think it is mainly due to its easy of use and its practical application.

    Anyone agree or disagree - views?

    The best combo is the one that gets in and also sets you up for the next one. :qleft3:

    The old "1, 2" is a classic everyone knows that. I always loved the punch/kick combo.

    Lead front kick, lead punch. Lead punch then lead front kick, etc, etc.

    Bill Wallace really opened my eyes to combos from the same leg,
    I.e. low then high roundhouse, sidekick then hook kick, roundhouse then hook kick, hook kick then roundhouse.

    My personal favorite is a combo with the same hand, but it takes opportunity and a lot of speed.

    In my opinion, I don't think you should have set combos. I think they should be dynamic, when you see an opening you should go for it. I think it was stated in another thread, you shouldn't be looking for combos you should be trying to string single strikes together. That's been more or less my strategy.

    are you calling a lead jab and then a cross a 'set combo' or 'string of strikes'?

    I've always enjoyed success with this:

    jab/r.body hook/r.head hook/l.head hook/overhand right

    As an in-fighter it keeps me in the range I like, and my opponent buttoned up and backing up. Either he takes the hits and gets hurt, or he closes up and backs into the ropes. Then I can plant my feet and unload.

    It also keeps my guard high (for the most part) the r/l hook combo opens me up for a split second, but my opponent is usually too busy by that point to give me too much trouble.

    Or I get counter-punched.
    And lo, Kano looked down upon the field and saw the multitudes. Amongst them were the disciples of Uesheba who were greatly vexed at his sayings. And Kano spake: "Do not be concerned with the mote in thy neighbor's eye, when verily thou hast a massive stick in thine ass".

    A string of strikes, because I'm not going to throw the cross if he moved out of range for the jab.

    weird

    I don't know man, string of strikes just doesn't sound right. The title of this thread should be changed to :

    "Thread on Strikings best String of Strikes"

    I don't think it's weird, it's just different stategies. What works for me may not work for the next person. I try my best to capitalize on my few strengths. Maybe commiting some combos to muscle memory, may help me out. But right now I'm not at that level in my fight game. Right now I just do what the coaches tell me to do.

    Headbutt, elbow, knees.....seriously.

    They get in your face. You reach up behind thier head and slam a headbutt, keep control with one hand and elbow them with the other. Easy to grab behind the head again and start slamming knees home as they reel backwards from the suprise attack.

    (that's the close range one, the good distance attacks were mostly covered)
