Farming Ninja Kickboxing Drill #1
Jab - Elbow - Hook - Knee Basic fighting stance for a right handed fighter. Hands up at a medium level of height and a slight bend in the knees.
Take a slige step forward with the front foot to develop power in the punch. Step (lunge) approximately two and a half inches forwad with the front foot with a slight bend in hte front knee. The jab is the only punch in boxing that your are not working off of a pivot or a twist.
Pivioting off of the back foot, on the ball of the foot, release the hips and the shoulder. Slice downward with you right elbow tucking the bottom hand underneath the defending elbow. The opposite hand works as a catcher for your chin.
Your Weight Distribution now comes to the back leg. The back foot is flattened and the front foot posts and pivots, and releases the front hip. Form the front shoulder, bring the hand in at an upward angle slightly above the lead elbow.
Thumb is up on the hook because you are going to follow with a knee. you want a slight angle above the elbow so that you're not using the shoulder muscles; you are using everything underneath the shoulder, which is your core region. Use you legs to drive the punch.
Your weight distribution now comes back to the front leg and the back leg lifts directly up. Front hand protects the chin and works as a catcher. The opposite hand works as a balancing mechanism. The point of the knee is directly up with the about a three inch extension forward.

Right Cross - Liver Punch - Right Kick
Right cross leads pulling the left shoulder back. Pivoting off of the back foot, release the hip, hte shoulder, and then finally rotate with the shoulder and the fist focusing the two big knuckles at the target. Use a slight extension of the pinky fingers at an upward angle and the (two big) knuckles drive and rotat down and through.
Your body weight comes through and distributes to the front knee. Use a slight pivot with the front foot to develop motion in the hip. the hand works on a cork screw motion, driving in and up through the liver. The opposite hand protects the chin and the core tightens and holds the weight of the body.
The weight distribution comes back to a sixty-forty position (sixty percent on the front and forty on the back). Your hip opens, and you start to life the back leg. Leg lifts and the knee leads the motion. You back foot is planted flat on the floor for power.
The front toes are pointed down so there is a full extension for the target point, wichi is the shin. You can either strike (kick) to the leg or the body because the body weight of your opponent is going to be coming forward from the leg.
Try these combination out.
