View Full Version : Attention Southpaws

01-27-2009, 10:05 PM
Alright. I am not sure how many southpaws are out there on the forum. But, I figured this would be a great place to discuss some of the things that seem to be very effective (or effective) against orthodox strikers.

Obviously, anyone who is orthodox can feel free to talk about what gives them a lot of trouble and we could give them some pointers on what we usually get hit with and such.

This thread will either take off, or it will be a bust, but it is worth a go. Feel free to post videos or just write it out. Anything will do.

Just a little starter pointer for me to hand out:

I find that combos beginning or ending with hooks usually work well. It really throws them off. More than anything, a jab and a cross come in at the same angle (traditionally), straight down the pipe. People are used to blocking a left hook, rather than a right hook.

If you use it as an opening technique, throwing it out there fast (not necessarily powerful) just to tag them or cause them to open up seems to work even better, especially if you want to go high-low-high.
