    Fight: Usually slip the first one and counter immdietly

    2) What is your favourite high probability counter move?
    Ducking to the right and sticking a jab in their face.

    2a) How did your coach train you to develop confidence and skill in using said counter?
    I sparred a lot.

    3) If your counter did not work, and the punches connect, what do you do now? E.g. do you have a safety position that you'll default to?
    Sparring: Clinch them up, shove off and then hit them back.

    Fight: Shake it off, hit them back harder then they can hit me.

    3a) What will you do (now that punches are connecting) to get out of this situation, and counter his punches?
    Circle out or close in.

    4) What kind of confidence building drills did your coach do to get you to be more comfortable with getting punched in the face?
    Sparring.

    You were like that before you started fighting and cages and rings are actually the only place where you feel 'normal'. It's too late to help you.

    yup



    Ducking to the right and sticking a jab in their face.
    Ditto



    I sparred a lot.
    You too huh?



    Sparring: Clinch them up, shove off and then hit them back.
    Leg kick...

    Fight: Shake it off, hit them back harder then they can hit me.
    I laugh at them.



    ..........

    Pplate, a apologize but I can't take this thread that seriously. I personally believe that sparring is the only answer to all your questions if you are looking for a definitive answer. If you're just curious on how other people do it that's fine I usually change day to day on what I want to do.

    move/dodge/roll + flavour of the day attack
    spar lots for confidence and trying new stuff.

    my favourite is probably slipping down and to the side, low hook to the belly, hook or uppercut to the head.

    Kat, thanks for sharing.

    Do you have a punch combo you train to use to counter(faster), or do you just look for openings and throw punches depending on what's open(slower)?

    Also, why do you use different counters in sparring and in a real fight?


    Sparring: Clinch them up, shove off and then hit them back.

    Fight: Shake it off, hit them back harder then they can hit me.



    Circle out or close in.

    Great tips, thanks again.
