If you stop putting pressure on your opponent he'll swarm you. Instead of curling up and moving away, use head movement and keep striking. Throw jabs and other strikes to keep them at bay. And don't go back straight, always retreat in angles. The key is just to never stop throwing.

What I do is circle out back and to my right, then throw a few stiff right hooks (I am south paw). I also every once in a while try to circle out back and to my left and throw a right leg kick at their lead leg (usually right). Both of those tend to stop the rush pretty well.

As mentioned you could always meet force with force and step forward with a hard jab, good head movement and a straight left (again I am south paw).

I am not good at it, but I have seen a couple guys able to use the teep, or straight kick in this situation too. Try the Steven Seagal kick lol.

thanks for the advice guys, ive found that retreating in angles with head movement then firing back as they furry at you make them back off. also most people don't come at you until you stop striking, so you were right you never stop throwing. oh and lol i don't know if im able to pull off those steven seagal kick but the teep usually works too.

Also I forgot to mention, defending on your physical attributes and quality of hand/head movement and natural hand position, you may even take a step forward with a slip or roll and trade in the pockets. These kind of Machida like counter attacks surprise and chop the shit out of people.

They're ideal if you're compact.

If you're tall, my go to move if a left hook as I hop left. It either gets them to cover up or keep moving straight. Either way you're out of their area and just out angled them, allowing for an attack of your own or reset your distance back to neutral.

I find covering up, and circling out works well. Plus if they are flurrying and acting wild throwing a few straights right down the pipe is effective.

I just circle and use head movement... if they coming with hooks then weave and hit them with a body hook... if all else fails there is always just go for the clinch...

If their rushing you in an mma fight just go for a td your good at, if their rushing you HARD then youl get the td more often than not.

When im being rushed in thai boxing I like to take no more than 2 - 3 shots without returning something of my own. As the guy is trying to pound your face make sure to cover up/head movement/circle off aswell as keeping him in contact so you can flurry back without much risk of getting wholloped :lol:

Flying knee or spinning back kick to the stomach. you have to count to 3 and time it. count to 3 while you back up. if they are still coming at you when you get to 3 throw it. you get some good results 8)

As many told you, footwork is key, cirkle out, keep unpredictable. Start timing hard shots when they charge at you, then cirkle again.

I'm sorry, was a bit tired.. circle without the k? You know what I mean to move out of the way, evade in a circle.
