lead leg front kick(skipping)/skip front kick to the middle....(this lowers down there hands to block), with my front leg still "cocked", execute a back leg jump roundhouse kick to the face. Works almost every time

what happens if they just move out of the way of your front kick, or if they are a WKF sport karateka they willprobably smother your front kick and throw a reverse punch. I would forget about jumping roundhouses etc unless you are very good and i mean elite (top 5% of world etc). Most people who think they can kick well normally a average kickers at best.
i would advise finding out which type of fighter you are such as :
attacking fighter
counter puncher
aggressive counter puncher (somebody who keeps eting up your space, by moving forward until they force you to do something).
i found that it was advantageous to fight in the same manner as your oppnent i.e. if fighting a counter puncher then wait for them to attack, which forces them to do something hey are not good at.

Here is one of my favorites. Its called "the timing of two" which is translated from Japanese but I'm not sure exactly what the term is.

This is based off of a one step attack, preferrably a reverse punch or something similar, not a kick. Basically it goes like this, when you drive towards your opponent, do so with great force so that he definitely reacts. In the middle of your lunge, pause for a tiny fraction of a second, then resume your step. It's sort of a stutter step. This will entirely throw off the timing of their defense and allow you to make contact with ease. This requires practice to get the stuttered step just right because it needs to be fluid and still lightning fast. Your opponent can't be given enough time to react to your real attack. Also, dont pause too soon or he will just ignore the feint.

This is a great technique against those opponents that seem to have tree trunks for legs and don't retreat. Unless flawlessly pulled off, this usually fails against people light on their feet. "Best defense, no be there"

One of my favorites is while my opponent moves in a backwards/retreating motion and forgets to circle I do a sort of shuffle and it looks like I'm going to throw a front kick and when they lower their hands to parry I execute an axe/cresent kick to the face or chest area. Although....I did it to an expierenced MMA fellow not to long ago and he swept me right off my feet and landed right on my back. Dam... still don't understand how he saw it coming. Need to practice the deception part of the technique more.

i actually do the same idea with a roundhouse kick where i slow the kick down whilst it travels, which allows the defender a chance to block a kick that they think is travelling at normal speed and then when they retract the block they hopefully do not realise the kick is still travelling.

the only problem i can see is that some people might actually stop instead of adjusting their speed slightly for a split second, as this means they wil have lost all their momentum.

I do a sort of opposite there where I'll turn to my side and step across with my back foot as if setting up a side kick, and from the loaded stance I will either throw a side kick, crescent kick or just for fun sometimes a backhand.

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.




I also fake a lot to the face then hit the body, it works well because the hands ALWAYS go up, guaranteed. And isn't the saying "Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee?" not fly? or maybe your taking your floating to the next level ok i'll stop being picky, but yes, staying light on your feet is definately a plus

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.





Does anyone else find this hilarious?
