    Thank you. I'll be returning to the gym probably Saturday and I'll see if I can get them to do that. Sorry about the bad English, I had just gotten out of bjj and I was the lowest ranking guy there, so everybody wanted to teach me something. Which isn't bad but very tiring.

    As a MT stylist you should be familiar with deflecting or "swatting down" punches with the opposite arm, correct? Is this what you are intending to do here, or something different?

    Yes it is. But sometimes I try doing it with the wrong hand and "jabbing the jab" if you get what I'm trying to say.

    You will see this referred to as "intercepting fist" in some styles. Not the best strategy but if you can jam up their punches or damage the striking fist it could pay off for ya. But seeing as you are saying you are taking shots while doing and attempting it, you are doing it "wrong".
    I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.

    I think that what he's describing is a muay thai technique in which you use the opposite side hand to "strike" down their hand for the purposes of opening the guard/setting up a counter/neutralizing the strike. It is not intended to hit fist on fist but rather to chop the hand out of the way at a diagonal to the wrist or side of the hand. Is this similar to what you are suggesting?

    Nope. Some CMA ( Chinese Martial Arts ... and even some FMA((PMA)) and JMA ) really do try to teach you to strike the incoming fist or weapon holding hand (defanging the snake).
    What you are describing is a parry, block or deflection.

    ... and for the record unless there is a weapon involved in the defanging, I think it is a bad idea.

    No, not with the attacker having the weapon but the defender.

    It's an attempt at that opposite hand party. I just happen to be botching it up and using my left hand and more striking it than anything. It's a mistake I've made a lot lately in sparring. Are there any instructionals on that concept of intercepting it? I may be able to take advantage of that.

    I'm a lot more clear this morning than yesterday so its easier to explain what's going on.

    Basically: I get into a sparring situation, my guard is up, I'm using my jab-cross-low kick more than anything, they inevitably get me with a liver shot and I fire back usually with a jab-hook-round kick or jab-hook-hook they use their jab to keep me at bay, I'm attempting to parry and hit back, but my brain says "no, no you use your left hand" and it ends up just punching it and I eat punches and knees.

    It's a **** technique without a blade in hand.
    I am not going to help you with it. Sorry.

    Alternately:

    Ask your coach and watch their reaction.

    I would not recommend it - it isn't suitable for muay thai anyways
