    On TUF and on Bas's MMA Workout (which I don't own), there are references to number commands that correspond to specific punches.

    Does anyone have info on this?

    Thanks.

    Yeah, it really helps when your coach is giving you instructions, especially if he wants to see how well you can hit off combos on the fly.

    The most common thing I see is 1=jab, 2=straight right, 3=left hook. Then, it can sometimes vary from there from gym to gym.

    Bas's workout is excellent; it works off a 1, 2, 3 or 4 command. The # means how many punches you throw in one combo.

    1= L jab
    2= L jab, R cross
    3= L jab, R cross, L hook
    4= L jab, R cross, L hook, R cross/uppercut.
    if kickboxing you finish off with the alternating leg doing a kick or knee (end w/ R you do L kick, L hand you do R kick). That's it, simple.

    This helps in only needing to listen for one number command vs. a 1+2, 3+1+4, etc... Here you just listen for one number and proceed with doing the combo. It is great for flowing through combo's, memorizing them well and for finding your balance during movement. Great cardio also cuz the rounds are timed out on the tape for 2 1/2 or 3 minute rounds with rest.

    I just trained with a guy who trains with Cung Le and what we did was about the same

    1-L Jab
    2-L Jab, R Cross
    3-L Jab, R Cross, L Hook
    4-L Jab, R Cross, L Hook, R Uppercut

    Then there were "22" and "23" which were jab, straight, duck, hook, straight, etc.

    There were also body combos

    jab, right uppercut, left hook, duck, jab, right uppercut, left hook


    or

    jab, right, lhook, duck, jab, right, lhook

    .. try this: jab, right, duck, right hook, left uppercut, jab, right hook

    that's what we use, and a good way to learn them at first is to do them in order while saying the numbers, then speed, then have your buddy call them out, the call out combos then.....ect....
