Side Kicks and Back Fists
This month at NJMMAA we are working on some side kick counters and attacks as well on when to utilize a standard and/or spinning back fist. As of late with fighters like Connor McGregor and
Stephen “Wonder boy” Thompson. You are starting to see these techniques reintroduced as the highest level of combat sports. Though these are not new techniques they have been used food a very long time in many traditional martial arts.
It is exciting to see top level athletes and martial artist bringing these techniques back in the realm of combat. Here is a short video on how you can use these techniques as counter strikes or offensive strikes.
