Jose Aldo abusing legs

I've always loved a good leg kick...although you can really fuck someone up, it's better than giving them brain damage. The highlight has A LOT of hard leg kicks landing.

As a proponent of the brutally simple basics, this almost brings a tear to my eye. Lots of "naked" low kicks in that highlight for sure, but a lot of those are paired up beautifully off of the jab, double jab, or the hook. The transition is quick, and the power is tremendous. I get nauseous at the Joe Rogan's of the world going on about "high level striking", and I don't know what the fuck he's orgasming about half the time. High level striking is on display in that highlight, and it's nothing more than the simple basics done with skill, speed, and precision. Great stuff.

Hooks lend themselves so well to low roundhouse kicks, because the twisting of one leads into the twisting of another.

One of my favorite combos is to step out with your front foot as you jab towards the eyes, with the front foot stepped out you can pivot directly into the kick and the jab to the eyes disguises the set-up.
