Multiple strikes with the same technique have a better chance of scoring than single attacks with the same technique, as long as the timing and/or location of the strikes are varied. For example, one round kick fired to the opponent’s midsection will probably be blocked. A double round kick to the midsection, when the second kick quickly follows the first, will also probably be blocked since the opponent’s block of the first kick will probably not have been retracted yet, so the second kick will be stopped the original block with no conscious effort on the part of the opponent. However, if the second kick is delayed a split second, it will probably score since the opponent’s original block will probably be in the process of retraction and unable to stop the second kick. In addition, if the second kick fires to the head, the kick will probably score since the head will probably be exposed due to the first block being the low section and unable to be reused to the high section quickly enough.
Combination attacks using different techniques with each attack have a better chance of scoring since they use both hand and foot attacks coming from multiple directions. Each attack may be a single attack, or an attack may be a setup designed to create an opening for a follow-up attack. Combinations cannot be planned; you just initiate an attack and then let each of your subsequent attacks be in reaction to how the opponent reacts to each of your attacks. The more techniques you know and the more skilled you are in their use using both sides of your body, the better will be your combination attacks. Combination attacks use up a lot of your energy, so, if you want to be proficient in combination attacks, you must be in good physical condition.
