Combination 5 Partner Work (diary entry)


Hour seven of my of my clients second course of stand-up fighting combinations for rhythm and flow brought us onto combination 5. As with the previous three lessons, we followed the format of warming with freestyle work and techniques in the first 10 minute round, including footwork drills, head movement and simple combinations before the two lockdown partners hit the pads.

Combination 5 is marked by its footwork and switch-hitting. After throwing a jab/cross, this combination changes to southpaw with a jabbing rear hand straight off the left hand before using a shuffle to set up a hook/hook/uppercut combination that brings in a rear round kick to the body off the back leg.
