How To Set Up the KO Punch with a Head Kick
Learning how to set up the head kick by using punches is one thing, but what about the opposite? What about setting up a straight or a power hook off of the head kick?
This type of Muay Thai technique has been used by many of the great fighters including Ramon Dekkers. Ramon loved setting up his powerful left hook with a hard right roundhouse to his opponent’s head. As he’s retracting his kicking leg, he uses his momentum to torque into a hard left hook that usually lands due to the opening created from the high kick.
