View Full Version : Favorite Sparring Technique
Whats your favorite tactic or technique??? In Sparring/Fighting
I'll go with a rear choke for my favourite technique since it should make them unconscious.
But thats not for stand up sparring...compared to other people I use alot of body punches and rear side kicks. Lead side kicks are faster but being left handed the right lead is at a awkward angle. Also because I am usually sparring southpaw I use the standard stuff- left cross, right hook, left round kick, left push kick. I'm only 5'10 so uppercuts aren't great value. In the grapple/clinch I go for the inside position, as you should.
I don't know about a single favourite technique...given the choice I guess a solid knee to the head:)
Most used techniques...
Hand - Jab
Leg - Teep (Push kick) but I do it with the heel (Chinese style)
Grappling - Im pretty even...choke,armlock (bent or straight),ankle lock
Whats gonna finish it (ie power)
Iam left handed but right legged.
You got a bit of JKD (good side forward) no matter which way you stand..
I also did not like the uppercut. It was none existant in my game until last year really.
Over the summer (in Thailand)I learned to appreciate it.
Also learned to appreciate the hook done with horizontal fist.
I did not favor this method because I worried about breaking the hand.
But i was asked to give it some work and at one point I felt a different better alignment.
Standing: Combination - Right Punch to the face (TKD style with a twist), Left Jab to the Solar Plexus, Right Elbow to the temple or if the jab really did it's work the back of the head would do.
Ground: Baseball choke (fast, effective and not usually expected)
I'm pretty ambidextrous really, I write right handed, throw left handed, bat right handed, kick with my left foot better. I kicked with my right foot till I was around 8 or 9 and I cut my leg so while I waited for it to heal I played with balls and stuff with my left leg. I started kickboxing right handed because everyone else was and it was easier. I changed to southpaw because I didn't feel good using my rear right hand, which limits you alot.
In terms of uppercuts I'll throw them if I'm against someone that ducks their head down as they come in. This is usually someone shorter than me. If you time the uppercut well it's a sweet punch, but if you don't and they get in close it leaves your jaw open to a hook.
We're told to push kick with our heel but I usually use the ball/toes. I aim pretty low with alot of push kicks, to the bladder, dig the toes in and make them wish they didn't drink that water between rounds. If I am throwing an attacking teep I sometimes dig the heel into the solar plexus or up under the pectoral. I throw all my side kicks with my heel.
Sean: since I have no idea what a baseball choke is I certainly wouldn't expect it.
With the left jab to the face, I'd expect a stiff jab to knock their head back exposing their jaw to the elbow. Splitting hairs I guess. I haven't sparred with elbows before though so I don't know much about them.
ambidextrous...thats just messed up...do you have to write them down to remember.
my hands are ambidextrous, but I'm left legged.
My faves are:
Elbows - any kind except upward, with either arm
left leg (rear leg) roundhouse
this awesome takedown that adrian luciano from the bj top team showed us at a seminar
Any type of arm bar, but in particular, the americana
my favorite control positions are kesa gatame and side mount
Favorite FIGHTINGING TECHNIQUE...
Jackson Height's Special...
Spit in face strike groin and eyes...left, right, left,right repeat beyond what needed.
Top with at least 1 stomp and a snot rocket.
If you make an L shape with your thumb and forefinger the left hand looks like an L (meaning left) the right hands makes a _| (meaning not left);)
Oh and I forgot, although I'm never sparring with elbows, I reflexly throw left spinning elbows when people get around my right side, I don't like people getting round there. I have always been able to pull them up but boy some of them are close.

"lead leg roundkick to back of knee pull leg towards you, chamber leg and side kick to mid section"
Sounds very Chinese.
If you watch some CMAist do a side kick (especially rear leg) you see them do a coiling type of movement.
Thats the check or off balance roundhouse type kick and then side kick.
its actually a savate technique, you are still kicking the front leg with power and I guess I didn't explain it too well but when you pull the leg in its more of a jerk to stun aswell as bring them in a bit for a solid side kick.

Right high roundhouse :)
I have a strong suspicion that Savate was influenced by Tam Tui.
There are too many strong similarities for it to be a coincidence.
Man, I'd give my right hand to be ambidextrous.
I'm a lefty, and I like to start out left hand forward because as I fatigue, I usually default back to southpaw, and since my opponent is (hopefully) getting a little tired as well, I figure that's a good time to throw a few surprises. The other thing I like to do is switch directions mid-back pedal. By this I mean, say I started left hand forward, and I'm circling to my left (blind) side, I like to switch stance and throw a right, or drop levels for a double-leg takedown.
Once on the ground, my favorite techniques are heel hooks and knee bars.
:up: -Lunging jab
- Left hook to the body, backfist to the head
- Roundkick to the legs
Right reverse punch
Jumping side kick
Right round house
old skool dude
Rear Leg Round kick to the thigh
a good ole closeline to the neck(while running)
Jumped knee to the head or body, left and right
highkicks left and right
left jab and hook
I like the hook, push kick, any kind of elbow, and any kind of knee. My favorite combo is the right jab, left elbow, left knee. I'm a lefty so I use a southpaw most of the time.
I like to drop my left hand a bit to draw them in for a shot to my face, when I see em move I give em a lead leg foot jab to the chest or under the ribs if they're overextending, throws them off balance at the very least and sets them up for a rear leg round kick to the thigh or the mid if you can get it. Follow it up with whatever. Make sure your fast I've had my bell rung a few times really good trying to perfect this technique.
