PINPOINT Your Foe’s ‘KO Zone’

WHERE TO HIT OPPONENTS TO SCORE KOs

We all thrive on the excitement of being in or watching a fight. What seems like a series of primal, reckless barrages to the uneducated is, however, a highly calculated series of motions and counter-motions between two exhaustively trained athletes.

Like Daniel “DC” Cormier says, “There are levels to this game!” 

What I’m trying to sound smart saying is that I’ve never seen a fighter find consistent success just throwing blows like a wild man. You have to have a rhythm, a system or better yet, a game plan.

To execute a game plan, the first order of business is acquiring the target. So that’s what we will be covering today: where to hit, and why.

 


X MARKS THE SPOT — WHERE TO HIT OPPONENTS TO SCORE KOs

TARGET ACQUISITION

Sure, any general shot to the head will shake someone up. Yes, all those shots, no matter if they land on the thick of the skull or the point of the jaw, can certainly sit your opponent down, but what areas give you the best results? 

When acquiring a target, the first thing to consider is availability. What is prominently on display? Is it accessible?

Obviously the primary target is the face/head/jaw. When striking the head, you get the most bang for your buck out of making contact with the jaw. It’s a weaker bone that attaches at a hinge joint with a wide range of motion. So when your fist/shin makes contact with it, you have an excellent change of shaking their world up or breaking that door off its hinges entirely.
