    My friend from the team had a fight recently . He koed a guy by switching his legs like he was going to kick him but instead he made a right hook , I never seen that before , does anyone else use this ? The guy really surprised me when i saw that.

    so he faked the kick and punched? Happens alot. Tyrone Spong is good at that with the rear hook.

    So from the orthodox stance he faked like he was going to throw a right leg kick but just put his right leg into the lead position putting him in the south paw stance, And then threw a right hook?

    In front of my computer, it seems
    If I had to guess, the strategy was a) switch feet, which b) would be noticed by his opponent, causing him to c) instinctively expect, even if only for a fleeting moment, that a kick was coming which d) was all the time your man needed to exploit this opening and clock him.

    Simple, but clever.

    I guess I do something kinda similar. I will ball change and throw a cross. It is pretty effective especially if you have been throwing the offside kick. It is all about setting things up and getting to know your opponent.

    Edit: Im a southpaw and use this on a orthodox fighter.

    thats exactly what i got out of what he said, a quick shuffle of the feet, oppenent thinks kick and instead gets punched. it is pretty clever, i like it.

    Sounds like a good idea, probably would work well after throwing a kick or two to make him really think its coming.

    i tried it but ended up throwing a shift then a superman punch, just the way my body was moving.

    this was sparing i did catch the guy i was sparing with, felt really awkward but probably because i just threw it in on the fly.

    So....from orthodox, he switched back to throw the left leg but threw a right hand hook when the right leg was forward?

    I have seen that a few times.

    To be honest I see more south paws doing it (so land the left hook with the left leg infront)

    I use the same technique sometimes using the right uppercut instead of the right hook

    Exactly. Faked a switch kick but used a rear hook. Pretty smart. Only works on people who are experienced enough to anticipate the kick.
