    Would these be knees from a clinch, or thrown in an open phase? How'd you close distance for the knee? Do you set up with jabs, or...?

    These days I'm trying out Jab/Rear Hook/Low Cross/Jab. This hook leaves a half beat gap which is nice when you're dealing with somebody who's learned to time their defense to the jab/cross, so that the hook lands just as they're coming back.
    Is that rear hook to body, or are you going high/high/low/high?

    If I'm desperate and hurting jab, jab, overhand, hook.

    If I'm setting a guy up nicely, jab, jab, cross, jab, low round kick to thigh. After that last jab, I tend to look the guy in the eye, wiggle my right hand like I'm throwing another cross, then as he raises his guard to protect his head, I chop his leg in half with a round kick. That has to be my all time favorite, and I land that combo very consistently.

    combos, bah!

    I don't really understand the concept of a "go to combo". I test the waters with my jab, attack with a left hook, counter with my lead round kick, and when I'm getting beat up I let people hit me in the head until they tire themselves out!

    When I've got someone not doing well to defend themselves I seem to pretty much default to jab/cross/left uppercut/cross/hook/right kick to the body (then I get tired and back off).

    See my problem with combos is I usually have a hard time letting my punches loose unless I see a target, plus I usually have a reach disadvantage. And when I try to get inside I usually get too close to the point where I cut off both my sparring partners power and my own.

    It's to the head, usually. Coming back I can use the arm to knock down the guy's guard if he's dropped it too low.

    I think these circumstances are too varied to rely on any single "go-to" combo, especially with the "you're rocke" scenario. When I'm rocked, I'm not going to be throwing any combos, just simple distance creating techniques (e.g. jab or front kick) while a circling around trying to clear the cobwebs out of my head and avoid being finished off. If I've rocked the other guy, round kick to the body, backfist to the temple and overhand to the jaw.
