50 combinations of Jab Cross Hook for combat sports
This is a series of Combinations for those who practice boxing and combat sports on 3 shots that are Jab, Cross, Hook, in this case I avoided inserting other shots such as Uppercut, Overhand, Shovel Hook, etc. but not because they are not important shots but to focus on 3 shots applied in 50 combinations.
Pulling a quick and powerful combination is exhilarating and satisfying, and it’s always good to have new combinations in your set to work with when you’re doing shadow boxing , i focus with your coach or training partners or pull these boxing combinations at heavy bag and here you can find in some of these combinations ideas to work on
However, it is not always possible to use pre-established boxing combinations because all of them must be functional to the type of opponent but in training it is essential to build your own set of combinations and train them.
Now inventing and trying them is fun but if you are novice but even if you are not I point you to 16 different quick and easy combinations that can be used in many different ways.
Now I want to assume that at least you know the numbering of shots and an understanding of the basic principles of the boxing combination.
- Jab = 1
- Cross = 2
- Hook L. = 3
- Hook Right = 4
If you want, you can also measure performance while you’re trained with boxing trackers.
What you should learn from combinations
As I told you before boxing combinations are NOT rules/rigid schemes that must be stored and always executed in the same way. It’s critical to understand that these combinations and any other combinations you see online are POSSIBILITA/ IDEAS.
As you grow as a fighter, you’ll learn how to build your own combinations based on the “stimulus of the moment” based on your balance and your opponent.
Practice and study different boxing combinations is necessary and can help you give experience by feeling which combinations work well for you, and which punches flow well one after the other
The goal is to build an automatic movement with mechanisms that create a flow of punches so you can pull combinations on the fly without thinking.
I warn you that there are several things that these combinations that I propose do not incorporate:
- Distinction between high and low strokes (height changes)
- Pull sequences of consecutive punches with the same hand (double shots)
- Combinations without a jab (the Jab will always be present in these sequences of shots)
- More sought after punches such as Shovel Hook or Overhand, and also in this case the Uppercut, not because they are not important shots but in this case it is a proposal of combinations on 3 shots.
These combinations are a start for building mechanics and automating movements in combination.
Before trying the 50 combinations read the post the 7 basic boxing combinations you have to try
Here are 50 boxing combinations that include jab, cross and hook:
- The boxing combinations listed are built for orthodox fighters (right-handers) but if you’re a left-hander (southpaw), reverse directions as I should.
- I also wrote you a few suggestions under the combination.
- Do them by vacuuming, focusing, heavy bag, tires, BOD (Body Opponent Bag) or using the All Strike Focus Mitt.
Shoot lighter shots
Lighten the hand that creates the openings and hit hard with the punch that wants to do the real damage.
Many beginners try to put power in every punch.
Don’t do that,save your power and body weight for the shots you want them to do damage.
When you throw the jab, keep the shot light and accurate, you can also pull the lighter left hooks so you don’t get unbalanced if you miss the target.
Pull some “fake shots” the “ghost notes of the blues”
This one you’re about to read is great stuff.
Instead of pulling a 1-2, pretend to pull the jab to get your opponent’s hand raised and then let in your right cross as his defense is in the wrong place.
By not pulling the shot you have gained a lot of time and you are also seeing well where it opened.
Do the same with other combinations by faking the first punch or even the second punch.
You can throw a jab, pretend your right hand (make your opponent put his guard in front) and land a large left hook that revolves around his guard.
Double hits with the advanced hand
This is the same theory as 1-2-2, but you can also double the left hooks or left struts.
Don’t always pull LEFT-RIGHT-LEFT-RIGHT all the time because it’s too predictable and too easy to block.
Try pulling aLEFT-RIGHT-LEFT-LEFT -LEFT-RIGHT combination.
This changes everything by interrupting the synchronicity of his defense and while blocking the wrong side, you hit him with the other hand.
You can also do this by varying the pace!
Pull punches faster
Again I repeat to you because I know that it is not always easy to accept, do not load the power in every punch.
Lighten up shots so you can throw them faster and increase your chances of connecting.
You can retain power for later when you have your opponent injured, tired, and drop your hands out of laziness.
You can also mix it, throwing quick punches with strong punches.
A magician in this is Vasyl Lomachenko!
Fast shots interrupt your opponent’s pace while hard shots provide real power.
Pull to body
The body blow is often underestimated but in reality many matches end with that shot.
Don’t always pull at the “head.”
It’s something too predictable and it doesn’t always work well against fast boxers who move well.
The body is a bigger target and will force your opponent to block by moving your arms up and down with possible guard openings.
Various attack lines such as height (up and down) and force him to work in double time in defense because this increases your chances of creating openings and getting to target.
Another thing you should know, a well-placed body blow can paralyze your opponent in a painful knockout.
“It’s not the shots you throw, it’s how you shoot them”
Remember! These combinations are to try and try again not to say especially by doing sparring sessions.
Pros always use the same combinations they try in training and designed for that opponent over and over again.
They do not get out of that scheme trying to pull other combinations or harder shots but “simply” vary the target of the shots, the angles of attack, the times and rhythms of their combinations to beat the opponents.
