    Whats your favorite old school techniques/tactics that still work but are generally underused. Got the idea from working with a older boxing trainer at my gym yesterday and he was showing a way to counter and turn a guy, he claims it was old school but very effective still. Thought it was interesting so was wondering what things yous have to share? whether it be kickboxing/boxing doesnt matter

    Blowing my nose on my clinching partners. Biting fingers off. Beating up women that threaten my alpha status. Old School.

    Don't know if you'd consider it "old school" but punching/kicking people in the tricep, especially when they jab.

    hitting in the arm was a tactic favored by rocky marciano,to weaken the arm and perhaps take away its power!! very cool ...you guys should check out jack dempseys book championship fighting ..from the 1950's can find it free online

    I've been hook kicked behind the elbow while my guard was up normally and I thought the guy had broken my arm. It was extremely painful.

    If you do it right and hit the radial nerve, you can instantly give someone a dead arm. I know it sounds like Bullshido nerve point stuff but it does work.

    It's essentially a really hard leg kick, but on the arm and since most people aren't conditioned that well on the triceps it can be quite effective.

    The best way is to uppercut just above the elbow when their arm is out after a jab, or if you are fast, flexible enough, flick a front kick up and jam the ball of your foot/toes into the triceps. Or armpit, that hurts like hell, too.

    hmmm...my coach told me about this once but he also said it took ages. I'll give it another go in sparring after new year's but won't advise it in a 3 round amateur match lol.

    It's not ''old school'' but the worst I ever did was to do bodybuilding poses and Philly Shell in between assaults during MT sparring session. Let's just say the intencity turned up fast.
