This is really the only combination I use. Although I shelf the jab and come in underneath their’s. I can’t really keep up with all the eleven punch combinations that are getting posted on here.
Maybe I’ll start a counter punching thread…[/quote]
How are you guys throwing a cross to the sternum? Are you fighting people who like to keep a really low lead hand? Or are you perhaps throwing a looping overhand to the sternum? It would just seem like a straight right would be a better option there.[/quote]
Go in underneath the jab. I won’t be aiming for the sternum most of the time, just going for a general body shot, but it will be there for the taking on some fighters.
I also figured you could slip the right hand while throwing your body shot. This would bring you to the outside where you could land the rest of your punches with impunity. But I tried it once, walked straight into the right and almost got my damn head taken of. Never again.
