Lets say you just covered up from a large combination, and took most of the shots to your arm. When and with what do you counter?

I'll think of some more scenarios in a bit.

Watch Rick Rufus fight. He counters the kick with a strait left that has KOed a lot of people. Also watch Sylvia vs. Ricco to see a great counter to the leg kick. Rizzo is another guy who has made a career from counter strikes.

if a guy is beating on your arms sometimes you can sneak an upper cut in. Usually his arms are down after the flurry so you can get a hook or upper cut in. Just depends on the situation. If you're in a clintch against the ropes try the upper cut or shoot to the body.

It's all good Chris. Curly helped out. I just have trouble countering when someone is throwing a combination at me. Otherwise it's not much of a issue. So if you have any advice on countering a combination, or stopping it, I'd love to hear it.

I agree, and I have pretty good footwork. But sometimes it's impossible to not be there all the time.

slipping and moving is key like if you can see the opponent constant jabbing or throwing left hooks you can throw counter rights over the top.

Most of the guys I fight are taller than me so that overhand right is one my favorite counters. Works well for me!

Well now that I'm in boxing, the counters are coming a long nicely. The only thing that really gives me a hard time is fighting southpaws.
