I sometimes switch to south paw. Through a few jabs, driving my opponent to his left. Sets up a jumping turnback heel kick.

Pretty effective.

i flick my forward hand out while open (not in a fist or palm attack) at my opponents face to raise there gaurd and then use my back hand to their stomach because i can generate more power with it. i also bounce around a lot, i love the saying 'fly like a butterfly sting like a bee' and try to apply it as much as possible.
Go seek the advise of a qualified instructor.

When shooting in I like to clinch and push against my opponent. He wiil push back, so when I drop for the shoot he is closing half of the gap for me. The sama principle can be applied to sweeps/reversals from the bottom. Pushing the opponent the opposite way you want him to go will make him push back the way you really want him to go, he rolls right into it.
That one is pretty basic.
Practice doesn't make perfect, practice makes permanent. Perfect practice makes perfect.

You are counting on your opponent pushing back against you...what if he doesn't push back? I try to never use force against force. One of my favorite tactics in sparring is to yield to oncoming techniques, sidestepping and leading my opponent into a strike by controlling his arms. This also sets up a sweep/takedown and/or qin'na hold.

haha sorry matt my mistake. fattts im guessing that u r a judo player because i have been told to use that idea in judo by one of my mates(im very new to judo).during my sparring I try to keep my ditance and if a commited punch is thrown i will kick quickly to the chest while leaning back slightly to let the blow slip by which is a fun trick that has worked a few times for me also beating thier forward hand with you knuckes to provoke them to an angry less controleed attack.moving bak afew paces/slides/steps leting your opponent follow that bursting forward tend to catch people off guard. i also tend to wait for the opponent to attak and then i attempt to countetr pretty basic but i think quik counters are moer effective than staight out attacks when against ome one of the same kind of speed and power jst my thoughts cheers-i dont like switching stances too much as i feels it affects me more than them

what kind of tactics do you use during sparring or fighting??

depends on who im sparring/fighting with.

if a person is kicking too much, catch the kicks and punch, or catch and take down and grapple.

if a guy is trying to take it to the ground, bring in those knees when he shoots from a takedown, and keep moving, not backwards but sideways, keep the distance and dont kick unless u know its gonna hit hard and not get caught. or do alot of low kicks.

if the guy depends on punching heavily, keep the distance and kick, or block his punches and get in and strike and get out, or block his feild of vision with a strike and take him down.

and ya, basically u have to act accordingly to who your opponent is. i dont think i fight two people with the same style, its always constantly being modified to whoever im with.

i never ever start off a match with anything fancy, just keep it simple, get in a good tempo with footwork. they say the first person to throw the first punch/kick can get the momentum in the fight, so i usually throw the first strike. but it doesnt always work. ahhhh, in the end it doesnt matter, just make sure you arent goin wild and throwing your arms in circles and DO NOT LOSE YOUR BALANCE, keep your form and keep your chin down always, and do technique or do nothing at all.
