Countering the Counter | 3 Options Against The Counter Cross - Lesson 97

Countering the Counter | 3 Options Against The Counter Cross - Lesson 97

In this lesson, learn how to effectively counter your opponent's cross counter after executing your jab. Facing a counter-cross can be tricky at a hogh striking level, but with these three expert techniques, you'll be equipped to turn the tables on your opponent and gain the upper hand in your exchanges. 1. **Bring Your Jab Hand Back to Your Temple**: One of the fundamental defences against a counter-cross is to swiftly retract your jab hand back to your temple after throwing the punch. This not only protects your head but also allows you to close the gap and block the incoming cross effectively. 2. **Roll Under Their Counter-Cross**: Timing and agility play crucial roles in this technique. As your opponent attempts to counter your jab with a cross, execute a fluid and controlled roll underneath their punch. This defensive manoeuvre not only evades the incoming strike but also sets you up for a strategic counterattack such as the hook. 3. **Intercept Before Their Cross Lands**: Proactivity is key in this technique. Anticipate your opponent's counter-cross and intercept it before it even has a chance to land. Utilize your footwork and timing to step in with a well-timed jab, disrupting their rhythm and seizing control of the exchange. Mastering these three techniques will not only enhance your defensive capabilities but also provide you with valuable opportunities to launch effective counter-counterattacks.
