    Rodney King Video

    No - not the Rodney King who was beaten by the cops.

    Sorry if this was already posted today, or if this is in the wrong section, but thought some might enjoy this.

    Here is a link to a DVD that Rodney shot with SBG athletes Adam and Rory Singer back in 2001.

    Rodney plans to release 2 more of these older DVD's so I'll post those when he makes them available.

    I really like what I've seen from Rodney so far. If I'd buy DVD's besides Bas' for training purposes, Rodney's would be near the top of the list.
    "[Fighting for Points] is doubtless very pretty, and invariably draws applause, but preferences should always be given to blows that do some business, to good straight hits that do something toward finishing the fight.
    A man who has carefully trained for brilliant tapping play, will find himself considerably out of it in case he is called upon to do any real work."

    Ok, for anyone who has watched that vid, at just past the halfway mark he talks about the Jab-Cross-Roundkick combo. Did I not just get flamed all to hell on the bagwork thread in Strikestan for recommending that combo? What's the deal?

    Mostly because you do TKD and don't punch like Rodney King.

    Rodney is talking about using the cross as a feint to set up the round kick. That was already brought up on that thread. Feinting with the cross only requires throwing your hand out to make it look like a cross, so you don't have to put that weight on your rear foot like you normally would.

    The thing is that you're basically throwing the cross and roundkick at more or less the same time, with the extension of the right arm disguising the turning of the hips for the kick.

    It''s not really jab-cross-roundkick

    It's Jab-cross/roundkick. It's a two part combination with the hand only being stuck in their face, it's not a real cross.

    To properly throw a jab-cross-round kick one would throw the jab, throw the cross (turning their hips into it) and then need to return to position by turning their hip back where it was and then throw the ckick, or they would have to throw the kick from a position where their hips are already turned and thus robbing power from the kick.

    You cannot throw all three with power while maintaining the flow.

    If you really want to get technical about it, the real combination is Jab-Roundhouse Kick, as the Cross is not just a feint, but you're sticking it in your opponents face as a distancing tool and to block their vision from seeing that the kick is coming.
