How to Block Jab & Straight Punches Tutorial – Bare Fists or MMA Gloves
This is a Taekwondo Kickboxing tutorial demonstrating techniques for blocking jabs, crosses and straight punches, for use in MMA, Kickboxing & Street situations. These techniques are specifically for no-gloved or small-gloved fighting/competition. Larger boxing/kickboxing style gloves cover more surface area (in addition to your opponents gloves), so their blocking techniques are slightly different.
There are many effective ways to block punches in a variety of different martial arts styles. The ones demonstrated in this tutorial are some general ways to block linear punches that work well for me.
