How to Do a Basic Parry | MMA Fighting


We’re gonna demo the basic parrying technique. I like to teach parrying against the jab not
so much the cross. So we have Chad here again. He’s just gonna throw one jab at me. OK, and when I parry, alright, it’s a quick
shot with the same side that he’s throwing the jab on. So if he’s throwing his left jab I’m gonna
parry with my right hand. OK, cause it’s on the same side as the jab. I never wanna cross up, cause then I’ll be
open for that follow up punch. So I’m gonna parry and when I parry I’m gonna
use a open hand. I’m not gonna use a closed hand, cause I run
the risk of missing, missing that punch. So I’m gonna open up the hand and I’m gonna
knock it off center. Alright. So you’re basic parry you don’t wanna stop
it or catch it. You just wanna knock that jab off center. So he’s gonna throw it a little faster. I’m gonna parry, parry the jab. And try to catch it maybe right, right at
the wrist or the forearm. Try not so much at the hand. This is a bigger striking area. So he throws that jab I try to catch it right
on the wrist or maybe on the forearm and remember use that open hand, you know, you have a better
chance of catching it. The reason why I don’t teach the parry off
of the rear hand, if you miss time it you eat that right hand. Alright, the best thing to do against that
cross again obviously cover, but if that jab is coming in, alright, work on the parry. Don’t leave your head at either. Keep your chin tucked in. Alright, he throws that jab. I wanna stay low and keep that chin tucked. And that’s your basic way to parry a jab.

  1. I accidentally stab my eyes, when I miss my parry, luckily nothing serious happen.. his punch connect to my forearm, drive my own thumb into my eyes socket.. what I need to do, to reduce such an incident

  2. You shouldn't really turn your shoulder and hip while parrying. That would open you up for an attack.

  3. first of all the distance is to big to even parry, your opponent must get closer and secund this is not realistic and you dont use parry a lot in real fighting. because the attack comes at you with full body weaght, they are not just jabing you, they are attacking you. but yeah the basic parry is what the video is telling you, but that is basic, dont relay on it too much. head movements and feet are more important and can save you from losing teeth

  4. basics stay basics…not one single move was made to counter every other. train hard and understand every single movement!

  5. Some people teach to just parry the arm forward only.. Others say go 45 degrees. I guess they all work. I think going forward and inward seems most logical.

  6. Does anyone know any good mma or boxing videos with someone using parrying techniques. I see a lot of tutorials on it and it looks effective but its usually in a teaching scenario where there is compliance and expectation.

  7. Guys, bucklers and target shields are too obvious. You’re going to get predicted and punished when you miss a parry. Just lesrn to parry with s good shield like the llewellyn shield

  8. Parrying a punch carries the risk of getting a broken finger like Travis Browne when he fought Werdum.

  9. Can we just appreciate how that student is like doing everything the master is telling him to do before he is even told to do it?

  10. If it was me, I lean back and kick his nuts. 99% of aggressors overly use boxing/hands, even if you miss with kick all that kicking power lands somewhere on the leg or groin area.

  11. 0:21 not just because of the other hand, but the one you're parrying can still hook and hit you if you're parring the inside poorly. by the way, you don't need to worry about the other hand if you do a simultaneous inside parry and counter with the other hand, boxing does a lot of separate block then counter but styles like wing chun do simultaneous which is superior when the gloves are off.

    1:10 keep your head back and do a circular parry motion so it's easy to catch, much better than just raising your elbow which is guaranteed to eat something and only muffle it at best.
