I’m Coach Vince. I’m a kickboxing coach here at The Arena. Today’s tip of the week is mixing up combinations using the same three punches two different ways, right? If I throw a jab cross hook from this stance, I’m in an Orthodox stance that I can start peeling away his defense by coming down the middle, and coming around the corner here. But I can also do the same thing on the other side if I just do one little movement with my right foot, by stepping forward. If I step forward, I’m going to be on the other side of him here. I adjust my body again. I could throw the same three punches on the other side, right?
So if I’m here and he’s working on his defense, trying to parry and block all the punches that I have, when I throw my hook, I step back off my hook, and throw my hook again, or I could throw my three point down in the middle again. One, two, three is the same as one, two, three. Making sure that I put my foot on the outside of his foot, so I have the advantage of the angle. And I’m not doing it from here where I can get hit by his right hand. So a lot of times, I’ll do it the opposite. Start from here, from southpaw, let’s say I have a southpaw, switch my feet, and I can go through the opposite side as Orthodox. But that’s one way you can do that. That’s your tip of the week.
