Mixed Martial Arts & Cage Fighting Basics : How to Target Areas in Mixed Martial Arts
ED WEDDING: Hi. So I’m going to show you on
an actual person the distance and is the actual techniques and target areas where I’m trying
to hit ’em. I’d like to introduce Mychal Clark is a former–I mean, a current professional
mixed martial arts fighter. So here’s the–here’s our basic stance, first of all, I want to
make sure that I have the right distance. Of I can touch his gloves, I’m actually in
the correct distance to punch him, to kick him or actually even take down which we’ll
go into later. So the first thing I’m going to show is the punches, this is the jab. So
I’m directing the jab into two places, either the body or to the chin, okay? Second one
is the right cross. Right cross to the chin, right cross to the body, okay? Third one is
a left hook, left hook to the chin, left hook to the body, okay? And the fourth one I’m
going to show is an uppercut which is can be the right-left uppercut, same with the
hooks to the body, that can be either arm, okay? This is to be the right hook, this is
the left hook, this is a left uppercut, this is a right uppercut, okay? Now as far as my
elbows, my elbows are going to come over the top to his chin, boom. This one I have to
be when I execute my elbows, I have to be a little bit closer, my left elbow will be
here, this side of the jaw. Shh, right, left, okay? Now going to the knees, the lower body,
okay, my switch knee, like I said, my little hop, I’m going to put it right into his stomach.
That’s where I’m throwing my knee, I’m going to try and–this is my target, the solar plexus.
Shh, shh, okay, my right leg is same spot, okay? My roundhouse kicks, I’m going to throw
’em to the legs first and work my way up. Inside leg kick, outside leg kick, body shot,
boom, right leg roundhouse kick to the body another side, and of course my head kick,
shh, shh, high to the head. Okay, my push kick that I showed was right here, if he walks
at me a little bit, I push and keep him away, either leg, shh.
