Combinations are two or more attacking techniques applied in rapid succession. A combination may be as simple as a double jab, or it may be a series of punches and kicks that culminate in a throw with a final hold-down or lock. Since combinations may be composed of almost any type of attack, the easiest way to classify them is by the way the forces of the attacks are applied.
Unified force combinations
Unified force combinations are a series of techniques that apply forces sequentially in a single direction. For example, a left back fist, a right ridge hand, and a right round kick applied to the left side of the opponent's head. The force of each strike adds to the force applied by the previous strike. Over a period of time, the damage caused by the accumulation of weak strikes in one area is greater than the force that may be applied by any one powerful strike.
