5 Weave Basics | MMA Fighting


Speaker1: Okay guys. We’re here to show some
weave basics. Especially what not to do in MMA and Muy Thai. Okay? Some of you guys come
from a boxing tradition. You’ve seen Mike Tyson go really low, like this, and look cool.
Or Rocky. Don’t do that. Bad. Chris, our Muy Thai champ, is going to explain why. Chris: If you get a guy who’s setting you
up, and they start going under, you’re obviously open for knees. Or you got that head kick.
So you want to make sure, when you’re going under, you’re setting this up properly. Alright?
Especially if you’re coming in for that clench. So I’ll throw the hook at Renee. He’ll be
in a orthodox stance. And he’s going to set that weave up. And he’s going to come in for
that double a take down. Okay? If he’s in a southpaw stance and I throw that
hook and he goes under, again, he’s making sure that he gets that head close to the body.
So he can close that distance for the clench. Speaker 1: Right. If you’re not shooting,
do not do the weave. If you’re just boxing, just striking, don’t do it. Don’t do it. You’re
going to get in a world of hurt. But if you want, if you’re very good at closing the distance
fast, then it’s something you can do. So if here I fight southpaw. He throws. Boom, I’m
out here. I can shoot the clench right here. I can shoot a high here. Pick him up. Right?
Or come right to the back. But that’s because I continued to close the distance. If I don’t
close the distance, I’m dead. I’m dead. Don’t do it. Alright? Only time you’re ever going to weave, if the
guy, either in MMA context or Muy Thai context, if you’re going to shoot and clench up tight.
Do not weave and strike.

  1. Did you know Howcast replyed on a youtuber click on the how to create a flip book its real!
    O_O

  2. I like Muay Thai a lot, but why do people have to big it up by being disingenuous about boxing. Tyson&Frazier both used an active/hard jab, constant pressure and movement to make their opponent's backup/circle away. when on the back foot it's much harder for someone to hit you hard with either hand, foot or knee. you never want to stand dead in front of someone and dip that low in MMA or on the street. Tyson like Pernell Whitaker did so on occasion but it was typically done to be cheeky.

  3. You know how weaving is string going around each other. Its like that but with people. When someone comes at you, you go around them, you weave.

  4. I generally like this dude videos but that wasn't a weave it was a bob. Weaving is side to side generally use to avoid straights. Bobbing is ducking like bobbing for apples. Generally used to avoid hooks of some sort.

  5. If ur actually throwing a hook when he bobs then he will rise before u can get ur hand on his head if u stay at a lower level for longer then u should then yes u will eat knees I've used this against experienced ameture mma fighters and one guy who practiced muay thai who bet me he could knee me in the head when I ducked its a common misconseption I did it successfully I've even seen professionals do it with ease

  6. Good to know about the weave. I'm mostly a BJJ practitioner but my only real stand up training is in Shaolin Kempo which we do not really use much head movement compared to blocks/parries. I've recently been studying boxing for MMA so it's good to know that the knee is something to watch out for when weaving. Thanks, guys.

  7. why are you saying never to weave in mma, rene? it's used all the time in ufc and mma. one doesnt weave in or out and stay put waiting to be hit. you can throw a liver shot, you can throw hooks or even knees as well as the takedowns you mentioned. no idea why youre so adamant to never employ this technique

  8. By the time the weave is over you're safe lol Thats why most people counter after the weave. Their opponent is still recovering from missing the punch.
