I have almost all of Rodney's videos, and I've also been to his seminars. He didn't cover what I'm asking, which is specific counter punching combos off your CM defense.
He talks about attack combos (jab, hook / jab, cross, shovelhook / jab, cross, uppercut, cross / etc.) in his tapes mostly and covers the finer points of CM defense.
I've also done CM1 and CM2. What I'm looking for is specific counters to drill with a partner against a jab, a cross, a hook etc. The only counter I could remember off the seminar was off a jab, to duck and come back with a left uppercut.
Hope this is clearer?

Honestly if it required a seperate set of skills and combinations I'd throw it out.
This is why everything I mentioned was something kind of weird- everything else should be intuitive to a striker and doesn't need mention.

I used to use the CM when I was new, but it's really at it's best when you're getting outstruck and you want to crash the line. I stopped striking out of that stance when I started focusing on striking, I think at a point you're just better off using a different stance. I still revert to it for defense from time to time though.

Tough is not how you act, tough is how you train.

I treat the CM stuff as the backbone of my worst case scenario stuff when I get overwhelmed by an agressive striker.
