Hey guys first thing I want to say I love your stuff. Ive been studying MA from 1997. Ive learned just about every kind of strike, counter, defense and footwork/movement that I need to know. What I really appreciate and why I became a member is for strategies as you know this is one of the most important tools for fighting. Knowing how to punch an kick an stringing attacks together is one thing but setting them up to land an work effectively is another.

 

With that said I was wondering if you could add more striking strategies for fighting opposite your opponent ie orthodox vs South Paw an vice versa. I noticed you have something up for fighting against South Paws but didnt see much on fighting as a South Paw. I can fight comfortably well from either side but are there any general tips that can work from either side? Also a few specific setups an strings that work better when fighting opposite your opponent.

 

Keep up the good work guys. I love this site! 🙂

JuniorD,

 

Thank you for your support and membership!  If you check out the Southpaw Series you will see we have listed at least 15 different ways to attack as an Orthodox fighter vs. a Southpaw.  However, the Southpaw attacks and combinations will be basically the same techniques only done with their lead foot (their right foot) on the outside of the Orthodox fighter’s lead foot.  And their primary weapon will be their Straight Left, Left Kick and Left Knee.  They will use the Right Hook to help assist in turning their Orthodox opponents inside their lead and setting up their Left Side Attack.

 

You can read more concerning this discussion in the Southpaw Discussion Thread

 

You can also see the same theories applied by both our Orthodox and Southpaw Students in the video clip below.  The theory is the same for either lead fighter.  Keep your lead foot on the outside of your opponent’s lead foot and set up your rear side to split the guard and take advantage of the hole down the center.

 

 

Thanks again for joining the site and welcome to the forums!

Hi there and welcome JuniorD

Check out the “beat counter” series in the search function , there is a wealth of great stuff here that is ideal for working the strikes you already know but in a way your opponent may not be “programmed” to counter them.
Cheers Paul.
