    My question that is driving me nuts is that i had this "huge debate" if either this(please see video clip) combination is any good or not.


    My friends say that after throwing the right elbow you should just follow up directly with a left knee. (could give distance problems imo)


    Instead of switching from your stance (having a orthodox stance) and then throw the left knee.

    Is this combination something you could possible think of doing? Or does it simply sucks? (under MT rules, k-1 max?) or is it just being a waste of time of skiping the knee in since it would telegraf and the opponent would have time to react to it?

    I personal dont see anything wrong with the combination but then again im not a pro.

    Thoughts? The big question is really: Skip with the knees or not!?

    Pat should go on the balls of his feet when throwing that knee.

    It's a pure stand up technique and it will work in the ring and also in the street but on the street you also have to be aware of other things.

    IMO it would take too much thinking. Personally i would just knee with the right for speed. While you are worrying about switiching stance, the guy must just drop you with a clean shot on the button.

    The mastermind behind champs that aren't exsactly known for their strikes, mostly. (Silvia, I know). Menne not bad either, but Lawler, Hughes, Horn, are not what I would call dangerous strikers in terms of technique.
    But the technique is not too bad. Mechanics were fine, the combo would land sometimes, which is the bast yo can hope for. The only thing is the switch before the knee. I would either clinch and switch or just shuffle in and knee. Other than that, whats not to like?
    It wasn't the quickest display of striking I've ever seen either. But I assume that people would say that striking with the same arm twice wouldn't work. Not true. Or that you need to start the combo with a jab. Also not always true.

    You're assuming the elbow lands. You shouldn't base a combo on how the opponent reacts IF he ls HIT, but where he is likely to be defending at the time.
    Still the timing of the strikes is very important. Just because you switch doesn't the guy will think "Oh, he is switching, I will now catch him in the middle of this uneeded footwork" .........but I don't like the switch either.
