How to Do a Same Stance Attack for UFC Training

Learn about same stance attacks from kickboxing champion Phil Nurse in this Howcast UFC training video.


My name is Kru Phil Nurse. I run a Muay Thai-style fighting gym in New York City called The Wat. We have some of the world champion fighters that trained at The Wat. If you want to find out more about The Wat, you can contact us at Today we're gonna be talking about the UFC. Stances: for the best part of it, if you are right handed, you are going to stand with your left side, which is a left guard, left side forward, right leg to the back. That is a left guarding position, or a left stance. you are protecting yourself with your left side of your body, and they call it a left guard or a left stance. Now with that being said, usually someone who stands this way, their power is on their right side, because this is a long distance to travel, this is a short distance. you want the long distance to generate your power and your speed. Usually if you are fighting someone in a left guarding position, you want to watch their right hand, and their right leg. That's where their power is coming from. that doesn't mean these two aren't dangerous, but more than likely these are the two most dangerous weapons they have. the key thing you are watching for is the persons right hand. so if me and Nicholas are in a left guard position, now i'm watching his right, hes watching my right. Because thats the power. if i throw my right, he wants to pay attention to it. If he throws his right, i want to pay attention to it. a jab, pretty much a jab i'll just to a to it. But kind of thing isn't going to work with a right hand, its a lot of power coming through with a right hand if he throws it. So you dont want to stay around for that so were both in the same stance. The main thing I want to pay attention to is this hand, and this leg. Those are the two power things, those are the two potential knockouts. He can knockout here two , but if I had to break it down for one thing, to two weapons, those two.
