    I must agree that headbutts can be very,the most effective way to deliver on that i know of is the old time favourite if you get grabbed from behind and especially if you get picked up for a throw down lean forward and either you he drops you or you let it rip with your whole body smashing for the nose with the back of your head.Favourite strike dont know if it counts as a combo but you strike with a normal left or right hook/jab and as soon as you connect you step in and swing through with your elbow of the same hand.

    <3 headbutts
    If they do Capoeira, they just might try ;) It's an actual technique.

    Gonna have to agree with the headbutt fight opener. Here is my favorite pre-fight combo:

    Hold hands up to the sides of the head palms facing the opponent that looks very defensive and non-confrontational. Get close with your opponent to limit his striking/haymaker abilities. This works great for the chest bumping assholes. Next, if the fight is on it's best to act first by grabing the guys head in a quasi thai clinch and drop the head butt BAM! Now you can either keep a grip with one hand dropping the elbow with the other and then knees with a thai grip. My favorite is just headbutt straight to skip knees to either a throw or some dirty boxing Couture style.

    Mid Fight combos:

    1. Feint with R. Cross then throw left hook, right cross, left hook
    2. Double jab then step into overhand right
    3. After throwing #2 at least twice throw double jab step in and as they raise their hands to defend the overhand I close the distance and secure a high body lock , then throw.

    That being said I also have to agree with the no set patterns for combos. I use the above becuase I'm not the greatest striker in the world and they work for me as I still think in terms of combos. However the idea is that once you learn combos you can disregard them and flow with punches depending on what you see open.

    :mblah05:

    Edit: Also, jab jab jab jab double jab, jab some more and then jab. Keep your opponent constantly defending your jab so it limits his ability to set up combos and it sets up your ability to use combos. I don't do this nearly enough.

    At long range i like (left foot forward): jab -> cross -> left roundhouse kick

    At mid range i like: jab -> left hook -> cross

    At short range i like: right hook -> left knee

    Good thread. I was just discussing some combo's to work on with my sparring partner.

    I've got a strong close fighting game, but my partner likes to run away, so I don't get to box that much.

    Current ones I'm training, from a right handed fighting stance:

    Lead leg front kick followed with a cross.

    Jab Jab Cross Right Roundhouse

    Jab Left Hook Cross

    Leg check followed by right hook.

    Just a little thing...

    Hmm.....sorry to slant the topic a bit.Im a relatively young JKD dude and with good stability yet by staying on the balls of your feet (ya need to be quick) I find this "combo" useful thought mostly as a counter for a jab-cross: With hands up (hopefully)after you parry the cross push-shuffle in with a low cross to the solar plexus (you can start with a jab if you think you can make it) keeping your head down get your opponents back by sliding your rear foot up to your lead and your lead out and around your opponent while nearly simultaneously delivering a lead hook and then finish off with a powerful cross by sliding your rear foot back with the motion.I train this combo alot to give work on my mobility (I can freeze up) .Sounds complicated but I think most will get it.Useful on slow guys.All this can usally be accomplished in all of about 2 seconds or less.
