STRIKING

YOU MUST AGREE TO THE LIABILITY WAIVER TO VIEW THIS AREA.  TRAIN AT YOUR OWN RISK!

TRAIN SMART ~ FIGHT SMART

This site and all of the techniques are free.  Some techniques have been around since the dawn of man and some I have put together, have been taught or found along the way.  If you learn something new on this site, please give credit where credit is due.  Thanks, Coach David.

Update 1/5/2012:  I will be adding techniques as fast as I can.  I will first be adding just the names and/or combo’s of the techniques for now.  As I get further along, I will start posting the videos that show the technique in slow motion, then training speed, then in fight speed.  Please bear with me as this project is quite labor intensive.

Update 9/6/2012:  Starting to film and add videos to this page.

WORK IN PROGRESS

BASIC STRIKES:  6 PUNCHES

The very first strike that I would like to post would be the JAB or 1 punch.  This is by far the most underused but yet the most important punch in all of combat sports.  The jab is used to set up other techniques and can also knock dudes out (just ask Forrest).  I have a few unique twists that I use for the jab.  Depending on your coach, you probably have not seen all of these different variations on the jab.  Once I get the video filmed and loaded, you will see what I mean.  For now, you’ll just have to imagine what they might be according to their names.  So, here we go!!!

The six basic punches are jab or 1, cross or 2, left hook or 3, right hook or 4, left uppercut or 5 and right uppercut or 6.  I teach everything from the right side.  You lefties are used to switching everything anyway.  An easy way to remember the #’s is that odd #’s are used for the left side (left hand block, punch, elbow, knee, kick) and even #’s are used for the right side (right hand block, punch, elbow, knee, kick)

–Jab or #1 Punch

Basic Jab:  Anderson Silva teaches the Basic Jab in this video.

Basic Jab:  Marcus “It Ain’t Easy” Harvey, Trainer at the Wild Card Boxing Gym, explains the Basic Jab in this video.

Boxers Jab:

Power Jab (Bas Rutten Style):

Power Jab (Coach David Alexander)

Feeler Jab:

Half Jab:

Probing Jab:

Chin Jab:

Push Jab:

Side Note:  I bet you thought that there was just 1 jab, huh?

–Cross or #2 Punch (Reminder:  come up on the ball of the back foot to add power)

Straight Right:

Power Cross:  Move through your opponent.  You should end up standing where your opponents feet were, before you hit them.

–“Plays”  Why do I name my combo’s?  It makes it easy to say a name to remember a 2,  3 or 4 move technique than to try to say each individual component of the technique.  If you’re in a fight and your coach yells out, for example, 1,2 leg kick, then your opponent will know exactly what is coming.  But if your coach yells out “Forrest” (which is one of my “Plays” that you will learn later) then you will know to throw a 1,2 leg kick and your opponent will not know what is coming (unless he also studies my “Plays”).  It’s kind of like Brazilian Jiu Jitsu or even Eddie Bravo techniques such as Triangle, Omoplata, Kimura, Twister, Mission Control, etc….  You just hear the name and you automatically know what to do without the coach trying to explain every detail of the move during the fight.  Also, It’s just plain fun.

“O.C.” (stands for Original Combo) is a simple 1,2 combo or Jab, Cross.  Just remember that an “O.C.” is always a 1,2 combo.

“O.C.P.” is a 1, 2 but a little different.  Throw the Jab and throw a Power straight right while driving through your opponent.

–Left Hook or #3 Punch (Reminder:  come up on the ball of the left or front foot when you rotate through the punch.)

3 Hooks Video

Short range hook:  Hand does not turn over.  Your curled fingers will be facing you.  (When I get the video going you will see what I mean)

Mid range hook:  Hand turns over and curled fingers will face the ground.
Freddie Roach teaches the mid range left hook “the most dangerous punch in boxing”

Long range hook:  Hand will completely turn over and you will make contact with the opponent using the knuckles of your index and middle fingers.  This is also an Overhand Punch.

–“Plays”

O.C. Hook” is a simple 1,2,3 combo or a jab, cross, left hook.

“O.C. Elbow” is a simple 1,2, #3 Elbow (elbow comes straight across in a slicing/cutting motion).

–Right Hook or #4 Punch (Reminder:  come up on the ball of the right or back foot when you rotate through the punch)

Short range hook:  Hand does not turn over.  Your curled fingers will be facing you.  (This will be easier to see when i load the video)

Mid range hook:  Hand turns over and curled fingers will face the ground.

Long range hook or Overhand Right:  Hand will completely turn over and you will make contact with the opponent using the knuckles of your index and middle fingers.

–Left Uppercut or #5 Punch (Reminder:  use your legs to drive up through the punch for more power.  Kind of like your jumping ala’ Mike Tyson).

Short Uppercut:

Power Uppercut:

–Right Uppercut or #6 Punch (Reminder:  use your legs to drive up through the punch for more power.  Kind of like your jumping ala’ Mike Tyson).
