How to Fight: Duane "Bang" Ludwig's Back Em Up Drill

How to Fight: Duane “Bang” Ludwig’s Back Em Up Drill

Summary

Onnit Battle RopesWhen learning how to fight, an integral part of the process is creating a flow between your hand placement and footwork. At Bang Muay Thai we use the Back Em Up Drill to work on this. The Back Em Up Drill is a drill consisting of three combos in a one-for-one pattern. This means that you would go through the three combos, then your partner would repeat the drill. Today, with the help of Chirs Holdsworth, I am going to demonstrate the following combos:

Combo 1: Jab, Jab, Cross

Combo 2: Jab, Hook, Cross

Combo 3: Hook, Jab, Cross

Tips: The purpose of this drill is to get your opponent backing up with the first two punches, while using the next one to land a strike.

 

A professional MMA competitor since 2000, Duane "Bang" Ludwig fights for the Ultimate Fighting Championships in their welterweight division. He has the official record of Fastest Knock Out in UFC history at 6 seconds. He holds a notable knockout win over former UFC lightweight champion, Jens Pulver. Duane started practicing Mauy Thai when he was just 15 years old, and in 2004 he won his final Muay Thai title where he defeated Thai Mongkhon Wiwasuk by decision after five rounds to claim the I.S.K.A. world title; something Ludwig considers one of his proudest moments. Duane is also founder and head coach of the BANG Muay Thai system, and happily married father of two.
