Got more replies than I originally thought so what's you guys's favourite technique whilst sparring?

Striking wise I love throwing a fake axe kick aiming to go over the head of the opponent then watching there guard follow the kick, then following with a left right combo when there guards down.

Grappling, can't ever stop trying for that triangle choke. Hate when they escape it but there's no greater pleasure than catching a guy (even better for a girl) in a triangle after they've taken you down.

striking technique: level changing/fake shots. i like up and down movement and faking the shot in order to open up punches or head kicks. i KO'd somebody with a head kick off a fake shot once and its been a favorite technique ever since.

grappling technique: baseball slide pass. its my go to pass and its is very hard to stop. its very simple and you can watch some of the highest level BJJ guys in the world use this pass still.
Honorable mention: bating people into attempting a Kimora and then trapping the bottom arm with my other hand, then pass and GnP in their half guard while one of their arms are trapped underneath them.

Favorite striking technique for me would have to be my almost leaping right hook. I was inspired by Roy Jones Jr. .

Definitely fits into my boxing style. However I don't throw it often. I'll fake an outside leg kick and if I see your going to check it its coming


Grappling is my specialty and I'd have to say my double-leg is above average. Feint a few punches an I'm there in an instant.


Throwing however has to be my favorite grappling technique. I'm very technical and know how to use my weight as leverage very very well

Favorite striking technique: Whatever I can get, probably upward elbow to face rake

As for grappling, gotta love a successful pendulum sweep!

I didn't think your favourite technique would be triangle defence

I like high crotch singles, americanas, and head and arm triangle chokes.....obviously I don't like being on my back.
Striking wise I have a great slip right elbow from over under clinches, good lead left hook, and my ole faithfull is a straight right......I am more of a bread and butter guy. Keep it simple because I don't fight competitively.

Striking would be a close call between Muay Thai elbow and uppercuts. Elbow because of the power you can put behind them, Uppercuts because they never see them coming.

Grappling would have to be the triangle, I have long legs and once they are in, I can pummel them while they choke. Honorable mention to Kimura, as it's so easy and quick.
