Onnit Battle Jump RopeSummary

When learning how to fight, it is important to condition your body to create good habits.

It is said that it takes 1,000 reps to build a habit, so continuous practice is extremely important when learning how to fight… especially with a new technique.

Today, I am going to take you through a great conditioning drill that implements good technique, if it is performed correctly of course.

This is the Combo Conditioning Pyramid using the #2 combo.

It is a pyramid set using the #2 combo, with up to 5 movements with 2 slips in between.

In the Bang Muay Thai system a #2 combo is a jab-cross combo.

Combo Conditioning Pyramid Steps

Step 1: Start by throwing a jab-cross combo or a #2 in the may thai system.

Step 2: Once you perform this combo, your mit holder will slip to your right and left.

Step 3: After the slip, reset and perform the #2 combo, 2 times in a row.

Step 4: Make sure your mit holder is counting the cross each time, so you can keep track.

Step 5: Keep pyramiding this combo up to 5. It will look like this:

  • 2, slip, slip
  • 2,2, slip, slip
  • 2,2,2 slip, slip
  • 2,2,2,2 slip, slip
  • 2,2,2,2,2, slip, slip

That is the pyramid of #2 up to 5 with two slips in between.
