A defensive counterattack is a late-acting technique that requires an attack to be later than the opponent, but to hit earlier than the opponent.
Because the opponent has a forward power when attacking, the defensive counterattack is twice as powerful as a normal blow.
It is also said that defensive counterattack is the most advanced boxing technique.
Defensive counterattacks require accurate judgment and swift action, and when and how to fight must be decided in an instant.
Below we introduce several commonly used counterattack methods for your reference.
Block the counterattack:
When punching yourself in the opposite direction, use your right hand to block the opponent’s left forearm outward, and immediately counterattack with a left straight punch or a left hook fist (below).
Another is to block the opponent with the inside of your right hand, then continue to use your right hand to hit your opponent’s chin with a short hook punch. If the opponent hits a “1, 2” two-level combo, you cannot use the inside to block the counterattack. Because the “1” in the opponent’s “1 and 2 punches” is a false move, if you mistakenly think it is a real fist, you will happen to be attacked by the opponent’s “2” right straight fist, which is very dangerous.
Therefore, when blocking the counterattack method with the inside side, pay special attention to the opponent’s “1, 2” two-level combo (below).
Stealth and Slide Counterattack:
As mentioned earlier, there are two kinds of latent methods: inward and outward, especially the inward dive method can enter the front of the opponent’s abdomen, which is convenient to attack the opponent’s abdomen with a right straight fist, or use the rebound force of the dive to hit the opponent’s heart socket with a left hook punch (below).
Using the Dive Counterattack Method, you can use the power of rotating your right shoulder to attack your opponent’s face with a right straight punch, or hit your opponent’s chin with a straight left punch and a long hook on your left (below), which is both effective and safe.
The sliding method is to turn your head slightly to the left and dodge the opponent’s blows while counterattacking at a distance of 3-4 cm, which can make full use of the opponent’s blow power.
The outside slide dodge counterattack is when the opponent strikes with a straight left punch, sliding to the left side of the opponent, and at the same time, hitting the opponent’s chin with the left straight punch (below)
Or attack the opponent’s abdomen with a left-hand hook (below).
If you master the timing, it can be very effective.
When counterattacking with the inside slide dodge, I should use the slide to let the opponent’s left strike pass over my right shoulder, and at the same time, from under the opponent’s left arm, hit the side of the opponent’s head with a right straight punch or a right long hook punch (below)
This blow is called “right cross fight”, which is quite destructive and can be said to be the most prominent strike technique of all strikes.
