MyMMANews.com Technique of the Week featuring Ashlee Evans-Smith & Emanuel Newton week 1
In this week’s MyMMANews.com ‘Technique of the Week,’ UFC women’s bantamweight Ashlee Evans-Smith and former Bellator light heavyweight champion Emanuel Newton work on using the jab and inside leg kick to set up a head kick to your opponent.
While using a basic fighting stance you want to throw a jab to get your opponent to bring their hands up and protect their face. Then throw another jab followed by inside leg kick. This is when your opponent may be caught off guard and unsure of what you will throw next so their hands may drop. As you step inside, immediately follow up with a head kick for the KO.
Watch Ashlee and Emanuel demonstrate.
