The Importance of Combos.
Combos on the brain tonight. Decided to see what the Googles would provide and they didn’t let me down. Now, I don’t know if this is because I’ve been out of it for a while and my head isn’t “in reality”, or if I’m seeing something that others aren’t seeing, but I was taught a very simple logic to my combos—Close the Distance—meaning, start with your long/longest weapons (kicks/legs) and work your way in close.
For example: Defensive front kick > jab > cross > hook > hook > elbow/knees; or: groin kick x4 > knee to face (assuming they’re doubled over in pain) > #7 elbow to the skull.
When I see “jab > cross > round kick” I ask myself “why aren’t you closing the distance and moving in on your subject? Is this for sport instead of survival?
Regardless, it is important to have a few combos in your back pocket that are well worn and ready to go. And remember, there is logic to the combos. Watch this video to see what I’m referring to: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U-a0PGt-vo0
