Thanks, I enjoyed this. I thought it was very good and clear.

 

I had a question about the first couple of techniques. How do you tell when somebody's going to jab as opposed to doing a full on punch? It seems to me you won't have much time to decide how you're going to decide to weight the legs, and whether you're going to push into them for a jab or fold and deflect them sideways for a full on punch. I'm guessing the answer is practice until it becomes instinctive?

indeed tons of practice with a partner both scripted and unscripted the mind will start to memorize distinct patterns with certain types punching patterns once the mind memorizes it becomes instinctual. it took me alot of experiences before i could feel anothers movements in a real fight everyone has patterns you can manipulate you just need lots of experience.
