Kickboxing Pad Drills : Kickboxing Pad Drill: Moving Straight Lead & Uppercut Combo


Hello I’m Sifu Mallon with the Clearwater
Kung Fu Center. This is my assistant Melissa and this is kick boxing. We are working on
a moving pad combination. This is called straight, straight lead upper cut, rear upper cut, step
through, straight, straight, upper cut, upper cut, step through. Again we are working on
using the waist and letting our hands roll out from the body. So a lot of times you see
people punch, right, they punch like this and it is all in their shoulder and in their
elbow and we want to feel their body push the hands out so we want to feel this rolling
effect. Basically if you placed your hands like this and twist this is the sensation
we want to feel in that lower back and it is wide movements. O’kay doing the combination
slow, Melissa is going to start with her left foot forward and we are going to go through
left punch, left straight, right straight, one, two. Now here this hand comes into the
body and she rolls this way. She fires her left knee to upper cut, one, then two, now
she is going to roll back this way and bring this hand forward and step in straight punch,
one, two. Lead upper cut, rear upper cut, twist back, step in, one, two, three four.
Move back and let’s do that again, starting right there so we go straight, straight, upper
cut, upper cut, wind up, twist that way and step in Melissa, one, two, three, four, wind,
step in, one, two, three, four. Good. Again we want to work on getting the body nice and
tight so we don’t want the elbows to pop out as we are throwing the punches. We don’t want
our shoulders to rise up over our neck so we want to keep the body nice and loose at
one, two, three, four, wind, one, two, three, four. Again we want to feel the waist twisting
this way as we are going through the combinations. This is our moving combination for kick boxing.
