The Ultimate Striking Program

Welcome to the Ultimate Training Program.  This is a step by step system designed to teach you how to fight like a pro.  If you follow this course step by step, you're going to be a badass.

Let's get started.

No matter what, everything starts with your stance.

The first video in this program gives you all of the details that you need to have a solid stance.  You will be well protected and highly mobile, making it easy for you to attack quickly while remaining safe.  I personally think that this video is hilarious as well.

If you don't have a jump rope, you're going to use what I call "Stance Movement" in order to remain exercising while you catch your breath.  This is going to get you used to relaxing while you're fighting, and it's going to get your legs into excellent fighting shape.

Click Here To Learn about Stance Movement

I want you to have one stance and one basic position when you fight.  There are many martial arts styles which will constantly ask you to switch your stance between orthodox and southpaw.  I will not.  I find that it is better to be highly adept in one stance with the ability to be comfortable in your other stance.

Back to business...

The first offensive section of this program is going to teach you about straight punches.  Punching is your most basic and fundamental form of attack.  Straight punches are are longer than hooks or uppercuts, so you can use them to hit people and keep your distance.  That helps when you want to stay safe, and not get hit back... (especially when you're taller than your opponent.)

This first video teaches you the little details that make straight punches as effective as possible, and will also prevent you from breaking your hand when you strike.

Apply those details to every straight punch that you throw.

The first attack that I teach anyone starting out new is the Jab.  Even if you're not new... there's technique and intricacies in this punch that might slip your mind sometimes.

The Jab is incredibly important.  It's not your big power knockout punch, but it's the one that you use to set-up big strikes, and to keep your opponent away from you.  This video is going to teach you what you need to know to have this punch and make it damaging.

Click Here To Watch the Video on The Jab –   I use a number of high school prom metaphors in this video, and Casey and I threw together what we though to be some funny clips to represent that shiz… at least we think we’re funny.

Next, we need to add some power strikes into the mix.  Crosses, Hooks, and Uppercuts are going to be our main sources of absolute destruction.  That said, you shouldn't be thinking of these strikes like it's a home run derby.  I would rather you be deliberate than swing for the fences every time.

But... you know... if the time is right, take his head off.

The cross is an essential punch that has both range and power. The cross allows you to twist your body into the punch, and has some other nifty qualities that make it a medium-to-long-distance knockout shot.

Now let's change up your cross a little bit... you know how to throw a double jab by using two steps on the left foot.  Oddly enough, we can do the same thing on the right side for a very confusing (to your opponent) technique called the "Double Cross".

This amazing little tactic is something that I stole from Manny Pacquiao.   It allows you to double up using your right hand, and easily move to your right while cracking your opponent in the face.

Introducing Shadow Boxing - Not everyone has piles of equipment, but everyone has a body and an imagination.  That's all you need to get an excellent workout and improve your skills, if you know what you're doing.

Summary of Day 2 Form

  1. The Jab - Straight punch with the left hand for distance
  2. The cross - Punch from the rear of your body
  3. Two steps on your left foor to double jab
  4. two steps on your right foot to double cross..... that's pretty much all I want you to think about on your first workout

Day 2 Workout 20 Minutes

In today's workout, we're going to do a set amount of time for every round.   In reality, what's a number?  Fights aren't measured in the number of punches it takes to win.  It's far more important to be confident in your ability to last a couple minutes in the fight without being exhausted.

You will be doing some workouts that don't depend on time... but most of them will be organized this way

There are a few ways to do this correctly.

  1. Look at the second hand of a clock
  2. Download a Ring Timer App on your phone. (I prefer Boxing Timer on the IPhone)
  3. Buy an actual Ring Timer

The most important thing is that you DON'T STOP WORKING until the time is up.  You should be legitimately tired by the time your round is over.  Start light, the second minute should be some hard striking.

Here's the workout:

  1. 2 Minutes of Jump Rope or General Stance Movement
  2. 60 Seconds Shadow Jabbing
  3. Two minutes stance as movement
  4. 60 Seconds *Southpaw* Shadow Jabbing
  5. Two Minutes Stance as Movement
  6. 60 seconds of Right Crosses

60 Seconds Rest

  1. Two Minutes Shadow Boxing
  2. 60 seconds *Southpaw* Left Crosses
  3. Two Minutes Shadow Boxing
  4. 60 seconds Double Jabs
  5. Two Minutes Shadow Boxing
  6. 60 Seconds Double Crosses
  7. Two Minutes Shadow Boxing

Back To The Learning

At this point, you have a decent idea of how to throw a straight punch to the head.  This is great, because you're going to do a lot of damage by punching people in the face.  However, if ALL you do is punch to the face, y0u become predictable, and your strikes are easy to defend.

Punching to the body is incredibly effective.  I would actually rather be punched in the head than in the body, ANY day of the week.  This allows you to knock your opponents wind out, and exploit a target that frequently is not defended well (basically his entire torso).

There are a lot of very important details with respect to straight punches to the body that shouldn't be overlooked... so pay attention.

Drilling Straight Punches to the Body

Adding Speed, Power, and MOVEMENT to Your Punches

You think that you're done learning and understanding straight punches?  Think again... There are some insanely important finer details that will make your punches more powerful, faster, and generally effective.

At this point in your training, I need you to focus HEAVILY on your form so that you build all of your skills correctly.  Some of my most challenging trainees are those who have been doing martial arts for years, and doing them WRONG.  It's difficult to re-established GOOD habits when you've already built bad ones.  The following lessons are going to help you to build solid technique, functional form, and big time power in the strikes that you just learned.

This is an essential video.  If you don’t watch it, you’ll never understand how to coordinate your feel while fighting, and you will never have any real hand speed.   Additionally, even if you already have fast hands, or if you build hand-speed without using this concept, you might not necessarily understand how to move your feet and keep up with a retreating opponent.  This video is just as much about moving around while attacking as it is about hand-speed.

Click Here to Build Your Hand-Speed

That last lesson on hand speed and foot coordination is going to take some serious practice.  You'll get used to it, and then you will be lightning quick.

While you're training that, you might as well start thinking about some tricks which can add crazy power in any of your strikes.  This next video uses a trick called "Maximum Fiber Recruitment" to build crazy power in your strikes.

Maximum Fiber Recruitment is a kinesiological concept that teaches your brain how to fire all of your muscle fibers instantaneously.  This generates instantaneous power and speed, making any of your strikes capable of immediate knockouts.

So that's the actual concept that I want you to apply to all of your power training.  Learn how to trigger ALL of your muscle fibers at the same time, and you're going to deal out some crazy damage.

The following video covers a bunch of additional exercises that you can do, specifically to build your cross.

At this point,you only have two punches in your arsenal... a left straight (jab) and a right straight (cross).  We're going to be adding many more, so we need a system to organize them.  The next video is going to give you the system that I use to number my punches.  It will allow you to associate a number with a punch, and that will make it easy for me to write out combinations for you.

Back To The Learning

Next we need to introduce some power punches.  Hooks happen to be my favorite punch.  You get massive power using the twisting force within your body, and you can knock people out no matter where you hit them.

These are typically close range attacks, as you will not be striking with your arm straight.  This means that you're potentially going to need to take some additional steps in order to get close enough to hit your opponent... all of this is covered in the videos.

The next video will give you all of the details that you need to throw a hook from the front of your body.

Click Here to Learn The "Lead" Hook

The hook thrown from the other side of your body  (your "rear" hand) is thrown quite a bit differently than your front hand.

While you might think that this punch is easy and natural to throw, there's some footwork that makes it complicated... at least if you actually want your punches to land or you want to be on balance after the strike is thrown.

Click Here To Learn How to Throw Your Rear Hook

You have the form on both sides... these punches can obviously be sent to the head or to the body... HOWEVER, this punch can be made so powerful that you need to throw your hooks to the body in a specific way to stay safe.

Click Here To Learn Hooks to the Body

Let's break the "rules" I just taught you (for the sake of a gross knockout).

Now you have a hook that you can fire from either side of your body.  The hook on the LEFT side can do quite a bit more damage than the one on the right, if you know where to put it. This is a tricky way to use your left hook to cause an agonizing knockout by hitting your opponent in the body.

You might not have known that you can make your opponent fall to the ground and shit himself if you hit him in the liver. This outlines a very specific method of punching which is designed to damage and cause massive stress to internal organs.

Sharpen These Skills

Now that you have the form in these punches... here's a trick to adding crazy amounts of power to these punches... DIABOLICAL power.

This video has one of the best kinesiological secretes that can be applied to throwing knockout strikes.  It uses MUSCLE SCIENCE to build big time power.

As I mentioned before, I want you to use your straight punches, to set up your nasty power punches.  To me, a hook should be damn near life ending when it hits your opponent.  Let's just say that I love hook power.

Back To The Learning

You have a couple of very useful weapons at this point, straights and hooks.  With these attacks, and some simple strategy, you can already win most fights.  Let's apply a ridiculously important concept to your style and give you the ability to set up some massive power strikes.

Here's a Ridiculously Important Concept

Even if you have the strongest strikes in the world, if you can't land anything, you won't win.  The concept of "Changing Attack Levels" uses a simple concept: The more areas your opponent has to defend on his body, the harder it will be for him to do so.

Click Here To Learn the Concept of Changing Attack Levels

Now that you have this incredibly important nugget of knowledge under your belt, let me give you a few examples in which you can use this concept to crush people...

Setting Up A Cross To The Body - Here's a combination using a change in attack levels in order to set up a big right cross to your opponent's body.

The Double Hook – This is an amazingly effective way to rip the guy with two hooks on the same side, one being very likely to cause a knockout.

Fakin’ Low and Hookin’ High – This is quite possibly my favorite set up of all time.  This set-up uses level changes and deception to set up a brutal left hook to an open face.

One habit that I've built in my own training is reversing any combination that I train excessively.  For example, if you only fake low and hook high on the left, you're going to disproportionately build the muscles on that side of your body.

That's not good for you.  It can cause physical imbalances which might misalign your body.  This can result in stuff like back pain and asymmetrical muscle development.

For this reason, you're going to execute the same combinations on the other side of your body, to keep them even.  This is also going to help us build additional bad-ass combinations, and get you used to moving in ways that you wouldn't typically think to move.

Reversing Fakin' low and Hookin High and The Mystery Combo

With these three combinations alone (six including their reversals), you can beat the crap out of a lot of people, so let's build them.

Drilling The Double Hook, Fakin Low Hookin High, and Setting Up a Cross to the Body

Day 5 Training

Warm Up With The Basics

1. 50 Jabs
2. 50 Crosses
3. 50 Left Hooks
4. 50 Right Hooks
5. 30 Double Jabs
6. 30 Double Crosses
7. 30 Double Left Hooks
8. 30 Double Right Hooks

Combinations

1. 70 Fakin' Low Hookin' High (Left straight to the body... pause... fake left straight to the body, hook to the head)
2. 70 Reverse Fakin' Low Hookin' High (right straight to the body... pause... fake right cross to the body, right hook to the head)
3. 70 Setting Up a Cross To The Body (Double Jab with a Right Cross to the body)
4. 70 Reverse "Setting Up A Cross to the Body" (Double Right Cross with a Left Straight to the Body)

Now again, I don't frequently do the "reversal" of the combination.  You certainly can... but that's more for just slowly training your body to be able to replicate things from either side, and for keeping your body even.

You have two very good set ups at this point... and you also know the double hook.

Here's a really cool trick...

From the very beginning of your practice, assign these "Set Up's" a number.

#1. = Fakin' Low and Hookin' High

#2. = Setting Up A Cross To The Body

Once you have these things built up to the point that they are mechanical, you can fire them any time you want during a fight.  You just have to remember to execute them (easier said than done sometimes).

By giving them a number, when you're in the middle of a fight, you can say to yourself, "Ok... what's number one?" ....and then fire that Set-Up at your opponent's head.

By using some simple memorization for these Set-Up's and combos, you're giving yourself a huge advantage in a fight.... you always have a strategy, you just have to think of the number or the specific set up.

When you get really good, you won't need to use these at random, but in the beginning, it's a great idea just to keep you tricky and dangerous.

Back to the Video Lessons...

So far, we have focused on nothing but offense.  You have to start somewhere, and dealing out massive piles of painful damage is certainly a lot more fun towork on than your defense abilities... or maybe that's just my opinion.

Every time I give you a few attacks from now on, I'm going to teach you how to defend against them.  This is essential.  Without the ability to defend yourself, you could get knocked out at any moment... that's unacceptable.

Some very simple defenses can keep you safe against a lot of attacks.

Let's start with my favorite way to cover up your head if someone is punching or kicking you.

While I prefer to make punches miss entirely, if I’m going to block them, this would be my preferred way to do it. It’s fast, easy, safe, works for multiple punches, can hurt your opponent.  Also, it’s easy to transition into counter punches… what more can you ask for?

Click Here to Learn Rampage Blocks

The next method of blocking-type defense is your "Parry".  Your parry is a technique using your hand to block punches.  It's very quick, low energy, and with a little practice, your hands can become like little moveable walls right in front of your face. You will be able to stop punches just inches away from you, before they can ever make contact.

This video will teach you how to parry, and then do some damage as soon as you've stopped the guy's punch.

Click Here for the Video on Parrying and Countering

So look, defense is not like offense.  If I want to work on my crosses or hooks, all I have to do is hit a heavy bag.  Working on defense is a little more tricky.  So how do you do it?  This next video will teach you the in's and out's of actually practicing your blocking and parrying.

Watch This To Get Good At Rampage Blocks and Parrying

Day 6 Workout

  1. 5 x 3 Minute rounds of nothing but blocks and parries while your partner tries to hit you... then switch.

If you don't have a partner...

  1. 7 x 3 Minute Rounds of shadow boxing or heavy bag work with as many pretend parries and blocks as possible.

Back to learning...

The next tool that I want you to add to your arsenal is the roundhouse kick.  This is one of the most savage weapons that you can have.  You get to use power generated from your entire body to lash your shin bone into your opponent's leg, body, or head.

This has disastrous results... all it takes is a few kicks, and the fight can be over.

Now that you have the technique for the roundhouse, here's a couple of tricks that will allow you to end a fight just by kicking your opponent in the leg.

There are ways to take advantage of specific weaknesses within human anatomy.  This little gem contains the secret weak point on a persons leg, tips on turning your shins into weapons, and tips on how to strike this weak point every single time.

You can now throw a fight ending kick with your rear leg... but what about the front leg?  That leg is in a completely different position when the times comes to kick someone with it.  You are going to need to master the technique used to send a roundhouse from both sides of your body, if you want to make yourself wayyy more dangerous.

This is how you turn the roundhouse thrown from the front of our body into a deadly weapon.

Click Here To Learn The Lead Leg Roundhouse

As usual, once you learn a technique, I need to give you the ways that I want you to exercise it, to build it up and make it nasty.

Unfortunately, your roundhouses aren't going to be ready to do a ton of damage, because initially, your shins won't actually be able to take the impact.

You are going to be incredibly uncomfortable as you build this strike.  You might even begin to believe that you can't take the pain... and that roundhouses will just not be in the cards for you.  False.  You are going to build your shins to a ridiculous level, and you will be able to smash them against parking meters if you want.

While the bones in your lower leg are much stronger than those in your foot (thus allowing them to remain unbroken) the soft tissues in your shins is what needs to be conditioned to take the pain.  This next video is going to allow you to build your legs up as weapons, so that you can throw them with reckless abandon.

Click Here To Learn About Shin Conditioning:

While we're still going to start the workout process with your roundhouses, it will need to be done in a specific way.  First, let's take a look at some methods that will actually allow you to build your legs up to be weapons.

Here's How You Start Working your way up to Full Roundhouse Workouts

Back To The Learning...

As usual, every time I give you a weapon, I'm going to have to teach you how to defend yourself against it.  When it comes to roundhouses, you can't take too many of them before they start to take a major toll on your body.  One kick to your guts can end a fight.  A few kicks to your legs can drastically effect your movement or even prevent you from standing.

A good Muay Thai fighter will constantly do his best to smash your thighs, both inside and out, with his shin bones… you don’t want to let that happen. Shielding a kick is a quick, low energy way to avoid the damage that would have been done to your leg, while also doing quite a bit of damage to your attacker’s shin.

Click Here to Learn How to "Shield" a Leg Kick

Ok, you shielded the guys kick... that's a good thing considering your thigh won't be damaged.  However, if the other guy does the same type of shin conditioning that we do, he's not necessarily going to be hurt by your defensive awesomeness.

The moment that you shield a kick, you have a good chance to capitalize on it.  Your opponent wasn't expecting to have his kick shielded.  He might be off-balance, slightly hurt, and vulnerable.

Click Here To Learn How to Counter After Shielding A kick

A lot of fighters choose not to shield the kicks that are thrown at them.  If you like wrestling, have good takedowns, or if you have a good Jiu Jitsu game, you can use your opponents kicks to take him to the ground.  You might have to eat the kick in order to do it, but there are a couple tricks to make this a painless way to improve your position.

Click Here To Learn How to Catch Kicks and Counter

Obviously, this stuff needs to be practiced.  You will need to work on it both with a partner (for the absolute best results) and in your shadow boxing/workouts.

Click Here For Ways To Practice Your Kick Defense

While This is probably going to be a little out of order, I want to teach you a concept that applies to both punches and kicks.  I want you to "feint" your kicks sometimes.  A "Feint" is basically a fake.  It will make your opponent think that you're kicking, in order to set something else up.

You could be feinting a right kick to set up a left kick... who knows.

Since I'm about to introduce you to kick sparring, I wanted to give you more to work with... so you're not just smashing your training partner with roundhouses.

Click Here To Learn How to Feint Your Kicks

With the amount of stuff that you currently know, you would beat the crap out of 95% of people on the street. That said, I want you to be able to beat the crap out of anyone... even trained martial artists.

The best way to win fights is to land strikes... especially those that eat away at your opponents ability to move (like leg kicks).  You're only going to get good at setting up your strikes by practicing being crafty.

In the world of kicks, sometimes it helps to isolate just your kicking, and spar.  What you end up with is "kick-sparring", which is undoubtedly the best way to become crafty at striking with your legs.

Click Here to Learn The In's and Out's of Kick Sparring

Now you've got one of the most powerful weapons in all of fighting (on either side of your body), and you have the methods that you need in order to sharpen it up to make it a fight ending weapon.  The next step is going to allow us to make this strike land much more frequently... thus doing more damage to your opponent, and ending fights faster.

Applying the concept of "Changing Attack Levels" to kicks, we're going to go high with our punches, and then go low with our kicks... our hands basically become great ways to distract our opponents, and our kicks do the majority of the destruction.

This next video is a quick way to follow any straight punch with a hard/fast roundhouse on the same side, using some simple principles in physics. This technique will also be great for changing attack levels.

This also uses your hands to set up your kicks, but with a greater emphasis on speed than on power.

Following A Punch With A Roundhouse ON THE SAME SIDE

Now seems like a great time to introduce you to my second favorite punch, the "Uppercut".

Uppercuts and Lot’s of Stuffs – This video is so packed with important stuff, that I don’t even know what to call it. Originally, the Ultimate Training Program was going to be a weekly thing… and this represented the first full week of striking. There are like 3495782 concepts in this video. I teach uppercuts, the concept of juggling heads, two sweet combos, the fundamentals of mitt-work for defensive purposes, heavy bag work, and just a huge pile of awesomeness.

That's a few more concepts... let's add a couple more Set-Up's to your arsenal.

The "I'm Definitely Going To Hit Something" Combination - This is a combination that a great striking coach taught me, and it's named appropriately.  If you do this one correctly, you're almost guaranteed to hit something.

Two nasty set-ups that rely on your jab – This builds on the jab to give you a couple of solid two strike combinations.  You will need to watch the roundhouse and hook video if you really want to understand the most powerful way to utilize these lessons.

Add A Kick Or Knee To Fakin' Low and Hookin' High - Here's how you make a set-up even more dangerous.

Ridiculously Important Concept

Fight Distancing – Before even teaching you how to throw a punch, I think it’s important that you understand how far away you are supposed to be from the guy you’re trying to beat the crap out of.  The correct distancing builds power and increases your safety.  This is an EXCELLENT video and you will have a better understanding of how to fight after watching it… make sure to watch it all the way to the end, for additional awesomeness.

So... at this point, you have the three main punches that we use in boxing (we will add one more later).  This will give you a lot of versatility with your hands, and the ability to knock people out in a number of ways (and at a number of different distances).

You have ONE kick in your arsenal, and several more to learn.  Let's finish everything that we need to learn about the roundhouse, and then we will add some more lower body attacks.  This next technique turns your roundhouses into potentially "close range" attacks... again, keeping the concept of "distancing" in mind.

The Switch kick – An absolutely essential striking lesson, the switch kick is the best way to create immediate power while using your front leg to throw a roundhouse. When you are in close to your opponent, roundhouses might not be able to "fit" in the amount of distance that you have.
