Tuesday, March 21, 2017

The superman punch has become somewhat of a trademark punch for UFC welterweight legend Georges St Pierre. Throughout his illustrious title reign at 170lbs he used it to great effect against the likes of Matt Hughes, Thiago Alves , BJ Penn, Jon Fitch and many more.

Although difficult to master when used properly it can catch the best of opponents by surprise. So how do you incorporate this particular strike into your stand up arsenal?

In the following fightTIPS technique tutorial, Muay Thai instructor Shane Fazen breaks down how to execute the superman punch following a ‘No Pivot’ round kick into a nice combination.

This variation of the technique has been used in Muay Thai for a long time and currently is executed superbly by super middleweight GLORY kickboxing champion ‘Bazooka’ Joe Valtellini, whereas as WWE superstar Roman Reigns frequently uses a hilariously exaggerated version of this technique when he is performing in the ring.

 

Throughout the lesson Shane goes through the correct type of kick to use, how to add extra power into the punch as well covering distance correctly.
