    Orthodox or Southpaw?

    I am just wondering who is orthodox and who is Southpaw?
    I am a combination, however i feel very comfortable in the Southpaw stance considering i am right handed. Maybe its because your lead hand and foot make a lot of contact. Like what bruce lee said in the tao of JKD. However, i like orthodox, because i have a nice right cross and left hook. So let me know.

    I'm left handed, so if I want to strike, I'll go southpaw, but most of the time I'm looking to takedown my opponent and it's easier to do that from an orthodox stance, although most people don't notice any of this.

      I'm in orthodox unless I'm doing a lot of kicking.
      Tough is not how you act, tough is how you train.

          At the moment I use orthodox, even though I'm left-handed. Don't have to reverse what the kru teaches every time.

            I am right handed but I use both stances I usually go southpaw because it's just like my stronger side. Like what Bruce Lee said.

              I switch depending on my opponent. I feel comfortable either way.

                right handed. fight southpaw. eventually i will work on getting better at orthodox as well, so i can switch up in a fight if i need to.

                    Striking: Orthodox. Coming from Karate my reverse punch side has to be back or I'm stuck with my front leg.

                    Grappling: Southpaw. I like to lead with my right because I can get my sweeping/throwing leg across the opponent's body faster. Maybe my kouzushi would be better if I was in Orthodox since I would get the extra momentum of having to drive that side of my body forward and across.

                      I'm southpaw when striking, but grappling I'm comfortable going either way.

                        My art demands both.

                          We train strong side forward; however, I learned to box orthodox and I feel completely comfortable in the orthodox side. My right side has more power but my left is more accurate.

                            In the middle really. I spent 9 years with southpaw in karate. After 6 months of MMA and boxing, I don't feel as strong with my right anymore, but my left isn't as weak as before.

                              I'm a switch hitter, (only in fighting of course.)
