Uppercut revisited

Post  cartmelpete on Fri Sep 28, 2007 9:28 am

Hello John,
Wondered if I could ask you a question? I know there's already been a thread on the uppercut but I'd like to ask a follow up question, (two questions in one actually).

When you use the uppercut as a pre emptive shot do you use the lead hand or the rear hand?......or either?

Also, do you throw it vertically as the classic Boxing uppercut or do you throw it as a 45 degree half hook half uppercut?

Thanks for your time and many regards,

Peter

Hi Mate firstly thanks for the question. now regarding the uppercut i throw the uppercut from a short social stance if i'm standing that is. i utilise the rear hand and i throw the punch in a straight line to penetrate beneath and under the jawbone landing with the two big knuckles of my right hand the punch travels no more than a couple of inches to devestating effect. It is an extremely powerful shot its true power lies in the deception employed at the onset of the pre-emptive strike.
It doesnt feel like much on the focus mits but believe me its the db's. Cool Take good care any more info required fire away.
John
Ps i cover this technique in my pure punching seminars.

Hi John,
Thanks for the quick reply , much appreciated.
I can imagine from your description that the setup and deception would be the key to success with this one. Definitely have to practice this.

Thanks again,
Pete

Unfortunately at the moment I can't get to the U.K to any of your seminars.
Have you any plans to release any videos/dvd's of your seminars in the future?

Thanks,
Peter

Hello again John,
Thanks again for the reply. One more question if I may re the uppercut.

Have you used this on people of roughly the same height as you or is it still good against much taller opponents?
I was just thinking that a palm heel may be better on taller guys.

I forgot to ask this before and only remembered after I'd logged off.

Thanks and regards,
Peter.

Ps good luck with the book and I'm looking forwards to buying it when it's released.

In set situations, antagonists will push thier face into yours or lean in to you at that point they are in position for the uppercut. Or you can manufacture the distance you require by deception(use your magination) Any other situation other than in face you wouldn't use an uppercut unless you were very good at reach and speed. bounce
Take care
John

Once again John many thanks.
You've answered my question perfectly. I pretty much "get it'' now.... in theory at least. Yes, now that you mention it most aggresors stick their faces into yours in an attempt to intimidate.
I can now see how it all fits together and why you say it's the db's Very Happy.

I appreciate your patience and time in sharing your hard earned knowlege.

Thanks again and regards,
Peter.

Hi John, How do you rate the uppercut followed up with a short crisp left hook to the chin. I personally am really keen on this little preemptive combo and I wonder if you're as fond of it as I am.

Nick,

Point taken, mate. I guess I'm the type to wear suspenders and a belt. Laughing

Its a lovely little combo but remember the follow up will only be needed if you have made a mistake. and then it will depend on your attackers position at the time you follow on.
Always be prepared to follow up or hit the next man/woman!!
take care mate
John
