combo concepts final


first concept multiple jabs it’s all
about double triple quadruple jabs on
your opponent. Since that lead hand is
the closest hand to the opponent and the
jab is the quickest weapon, you can
double up on it you can triple up on it
you can quadruple up on it you can do it
even more than that theoretically. But
it’s all about just pop up keeping that
jab in the opponent’s face. Next we’re
gonna talk about fighting behind the jab
this is all about using your jab as a
set up to allow for the opportunity to
land with bigger weapons and
combinations. You’ll see here I’m setting
up this combination with a jab I’m
setting up this switch kick with a jab
I’m setting up this big elbow with a jab.
These things you don’t just want to
throw by themselves you need to get some
kind of distraction or some kind of stun
on the opponent before you can land big
things like that overhand.
Next let’s
talk about fighting behind the lead leg
the lead leg is the longest weapon and
the closest weapon to the target, so
using it takes full advantage of
Distance. You’ll notice the leg can
stretch out much further than the arm
ever could. We’re gonna use that to our
advantage to set up our combinations you
can see here just a few examples of ways
I do it. The lead roundhouse kick to the
rear hook, the lead roundhouse kick to
the overhand, the lead roundhouse kick to
the check hook. All different ways of
attacking with that lead leg first and
then following up with a combo.
Now we’re
gonna talk about building power in a
combination usually the first strike in
a combo is the weakest one the power
builds every shot after that with the
last strike being the strongest in the
combination. Now there’s a couple reasons
why that happens one is that actually
pulling the arm back, adds to the power
of the next strike. This is a very
interesting phenomenon because a cross
thrown after a jab is more powerful than
just a cross by itself.
What’s also extremely interesting is
that the power will actually build with
every punch so the more you do that the
more
powerful that your punches get. When you
become a skilled martial artist you will
learn to be able to control that power
by pulling the arm back and you’ll be
able to direct it as you control it for
devastating power that doesn’t require
you to become any more physically
capable or a better athlete. Now let’s
talk about combos that travel down the
straight path.
Remember, the quickest way between two
points is to take a straight line. By
that logic the quickest way to punch
your opponent in the face or kick them
in the face is to throw combos that go
straight down that straight path. things
like jab cross double jab cross those
kinds of attacks spamming the straight
line is a great way to land a furious
combo.
Now let’s talk about the circular
path. The whole idea is to throw a
circular strike that knocks them off
balance so when I throw a right hook I’m
hitting them over to the right side and
when I throw a left hook I’m throwing
them over to the left side. The whole
idea is to keep their weight shifting
from side to side keeping them in this
trap that you’ve created always keeping
their weight off balance. You can do that
with hooks you can mix in elbows as well
you can change levels with it as you see
here and as you see here, and what’s very
common is people will finish these
circular attacks with kicks. Now here you
see a very common one this is a left
hook into a right kick very Muay Thai. You
can throw two hooks and then kick you
can throw three hooks and then kick it
doesn’t matter. The idea is to knock them
in to the next strike.
Next concept we’re
talking about as sneaking in the upper
cut, and the uppercut is probably the
most underused of all the fundamental
strikes. So any combo that you can do
that has an uppercut it’s sneaky it’s
surprising and it’s not that hard to
throw so add in uppercuts where you can.
Next we’re going to be talking about
throwing two or more strikes on one side
people usually expect you to switch
limbs with every strike, and it’s
actually a lot harder to throw to
on one side so if you get good at it you
can get really tricky and fool people
with your technique you could also use
it to start combos as you see here I’m
going to throw three on one side three
hooks on one side and then I’m gonna go
right into my combo from there using
that to create the opening. Now we’re
gonna talk about changing the path and
there’s two ways to do it the first way
is to establish a repetitive series of
attacks on one path. Here I’ve
established a straight path so my
opponent will use and defense for a
straight attack but what I’m really
going for is a circular attack so when
he’s defending that straight path he’s
open to the circular attack. Here’s
another example of it I’m gonna start
with a series of straight attacks and
once I’ve established that straight
guard I’m gonna come around with those
elbows. Another way I can do it is by
constantly changing the path so here I’m
going to start off with a jab that is on
the straight path, I’m gonna come next
with an uppercut that’s on that vertical
path, then I’m gonna throw a hook which
is on that curved path or that circular
path then I’m gonna finish on the street
so constantly switching constantly
confusing here’s another one I’m gonna
start off with a jab to establish a
straight path, then I’m gonna throw two
hooks to confuse him with a circular
path just when he thinks he’s got me
figured out I’m gonna throw this
uppercut then I’m gonna resume to my two
hooks again. So constantly switching the
path that you’re on is just a great way
to remain unpredictable.
so changing limbs is another great way
to create openings with combos. Here’s
one example I start with a jab which is
my hand I switch to my elbow I’m gonna
then throw a knee and finally finish
this up with a left kick. Four different
limbs four different attacks to keep
things interesting. It’s just a great way
to never let your opponent get too
comfortable if you just use one weapon
over and over again you’re much easier
to beat when you constantly switch much
trickier.
Next thing we will discuss is changing
levels. So for example I’m gonna jab low
as you can see here bringing this
person’s guard down then I’m gonna kick
high while their guard is low and
hopefully strike them across the face. By
constantly shifting your attack up and
down changing those levels you are more
unpredictable and increase your odds of
success another.
Another, great way to create
openings is to constantly change the
distance so what I’m gonna do here is
move in with some attacks after I throw
that knee I’m gonna back out and throw
some attacks so by constantly adjusting
how far away I am from the opponent, I
give myself different options and I keep
them confused and guessing as to where
I’m gonna be next ok next. Let’s talk
about switching stances what I’m gonna
do is start off with a one two here now
in the middle of that combo I’m gonna
bring my right leg back on my left leg
four at the same time to switch my
stance. From here I have many
possibilities my opponent maybe didn’t
see it because of the punching
combination and now I can attack him
from an angle that he is not expecting.
When you get your opponent really used
to everything coming from one side and
then all of a sudden it switches, it can
create a moment of opportunity for you
they are rare but if you can use them
they’re very good. Final concept the
final concept will be switching angles
so watch I’m gonna start with two
punches now I’m gonna throw a check hook
as I use the pivot step and I’ve created
a new angle of attack that I can throw
this cross from. What you’re doing is
getting your opponent confused by
switching your position by giving
yourself a dominant angle of attack and
then you can move in attack an angle
where he cannot. This is probably the
most high level way of throwing a combo
or using a combo of concept to create an
opening and I wish I had more examples
to show you but I only have this one so
enjoy it and thanks for watching guys
I’ll see you next time.
