The last Blog featured how to deal with a bigger opponent. One of the readers (Robbie Adams) noticed that my opponent in the video threw a lot of lead right hands. Since the Shidokan World Open is a tournament, I had the opportunity to see him use that right hand on his first opponent. He KO'd his opponent, so I knew I had to watch out for that right club. Robbie asked would I deal with a fighter who used the left hook. So, I looked through some of our Youtube videos to find a fight and I found one from the 2002 World Open. This is the finals against Ryo Sakai. This clip is the kickboxing rounds of the Triathlon (karate, kickboxing, grappling). This clip shows Sakai using the hook to set up his combinations. I use movement and throw a lot of right leads to thwart his hook. When I see him set to throw it, I move.
